Ted Slot Review
Back in 2012, a film about a Teddy Bear that came to life proved to be a surprise smash hit at the cinemas. That’s because this was no children’s fantasy in the style of Pixar or Disney, but instead told the tale of John Bennett (played by Mark Wahlberg) and his uncouth, socially deviant and downright rude (yet indescribably funny) Teddy Bear friend Ted. Voiced by Seth MacFarlane, who earned fame as the writer of Family Guy, Ted proved to be a huge hit and spawned a 2015 sequel called Ted 2, where the cuddly toy tries to get married to start a family.
Following on from Box Office success, Ted the slot has now arrived at Bet365 Games and to be fair, it is advisable to warn players that the same type of humour which was so prevalent throughout the two films, is entirely evident in the slot too. Fair play to the developers Blueprint Gaming for not shirking this, as a watered down and more sanitised version of Ted would not have worked at all. So if a game where the occasional swear word, adult humour, and mild drugs references are not to your liking, then you are best looking for a slightly different slot to play.
If however you find the Ted humour entirely your thing then you are going to love this 5×3 reel and 20 payline slot. You can play from 20p up to £200 per spin and the jackpot is £5,000 coins. The game is set against the backdrop of Ted’s somewhat untity living room, with the Teddy Bear asleep on the couch while you play. However, when you trigger one of the many bonus features in the slot, he will jump up and start interacting with you on the reels and that is when the game really does come to life and the magic begins.
Ted Slot Key Features
As well as the usual Wild symbol, the Ted logo is super stacked on all the reels and if you can land five across a payline, you win 25 times your stake as the prize (although you could increase the size of your win with this by landing multiple paylines). However, the first major feature of the slot are the six different base game bonus features that you can trigger while playing through your spins. The six bonus games are:
- Laser Gun Wilds – Which sees a laser beam from Ted’s Gun turning multiple symbols Wild on the reels.
- Psychedelic Super Spin – Ted smokes his bong and when the smoke clears, a number of Ted symbols are added to the reels, which can transform into a single symbol to give a big value win.
- Beer Streak Feature – Ted sprays beer onto the reels and when they are covered, the symbols will rearrange themselves into a higher paying winning combination. This will continue to award wins until all the beer froth disappears from the reels.
- Psychedelic Colossal Spin Feature – Ted smokes his bong once again and this time the smoke covers the reels and a single Colossal reel is created which gives the player a much greater chance at a higher value win.
- TV Remote Symbol Streak – On any winning spin, Ted can jump up and pick up the TV remote and start pressing buttons which will spin the non-winning reels until you land a bigger value win.
- Psychedelic Bonus Boost – Ted once again covers the reels in smoke and this time additional Bonus symbols are added to the reels to give you a much better chance of triggering the Thunder Buddies Bonus game.
The second set of bonuses come from triggering the Thunder Buddies Bonus round, which can be achieved in the Psychedelic Bonus Boost game outlined above, or by landing three or more of the Thunder Buddies scatter symbols across the reels during the base game. Land this and you then get to spin a carousel which will then decide which of the five different games you will play through:
- Wheel of Fartune Bonus
- Bar Crawl Bonus
- Super Mart Free Spins
- Flash Free Spins
- Big Money Bonus
Of these the Big Money Bonus is the game that offers the largest potential win and it is possible to earn a shot at this game playing through the other four. Furthermore, at the end of playing one of the bonus games above, you are given the opportunity to gamble your wins against a chance to play the Big Money Bonus game.
Yes Ted may well be a little near-to-the knuckle at times and this is a slot game that is not for the faint of heart, but if you enjoy the rather crude and unashamedly bad taste humour then what you will find is an absolutely fantastic slot to play that offers a huge amount of bonus features and a level of depth and subtlety that is not immediately apparent. The presentation of the slot is faultless and fans of the film will find plenty to love, but slot gamers will also get a huge amount from all the different bonus features which really liven up the game, even if the largest possible win is just a somewhat miserly 5,000 coins.
