If you’re unfamiliar with Ted, he was the animated star of the 2012 comedy of the same name who featured alongside Mark Wahlberg (John Bennett in the movie); many elements of that film have now been built into an online slot machine – also called Ted – developed by Blueprint Gaming and you can find out all about it below.
Ted is a five reel slot with three rows and twenty fixed paylines; it’s set in Ted’s abode and as a party takes place in the background, he’s lying drunk in the foreground among empty beer cans.
The high value symbols include John’s girlfriend Lori, a swan, some bottles of beer, a bong and the game’s logo (which can appear stacked on the reels); J, Q, K and A make up the lower values.
Ted is of course the wild symbol and he’ll replace all others to form winning combos except for the Thunder Buddies bonus icon.
Thunder Buddies Bonus
This is triggered by landing three or more of the Thunder Buddies bonus symbols anywhere in view and you will now get to spin a Wheel of Fortune which will determine one of five features to be awarded:
- Bar Crawl Bonus – select bottles in this board game to move around the board and collect win multipliers; special squares award extra prizes and potentially entry to the Big Money Bonus where you’ll win an even greater multiplier. Get arrested and the round is over.
- Super Mart Free Spins – awards five free spins on a set of reels with a background of moving supermarket shelves; the wild symbols on these shelves will move around to the corresponding positions on the reels.
- Flash Free Spins – awards the pre-determined number of spins on a 5×4 set of reels and after each spin a bonus will be awarded from the grid above; these bonuses gradually improve as the spins progress.
- Big Money – awards entry straight into the Big Money Bonus which will award at least one large multiplier of your total bet.
- Wheel Of Fartune – select a Ted to reveal an arrow, multiplier boost or spin and play the Wheel to try and reach the Big Money bonus, or collect as many prizes as possible along the way.
Ted can wake up during the base game and award one of six mini-features as follows:
- Laser Gun Wilds – Ted will fire a laser at the reels to turn symbols wild.
- Psychedelic Super Spin – Ted will take a huge puff of his bong and blow smoke onto the reel, adding lots of Ted symbols which will then transform into one matching icon.
- Beer Streak – Ted will spray beer onto a winning combo to create a new winning combo; this continues until there are no more bubbles left.
- Psychedelic Colossal Spin – Ted will blow more smoke onto the reels to combine three of them into one huge symbols for a guaranteed win.
- TV Remote Symbol Streak – Ted will mash the buttons on his remote control after a win and there’ll be respins with those symbols frozen in place until there are no more new wins.
- Psychedelic Bonus Boost – Ted will blow smoke once more onto the reels and add more bonus symbols to give a better chance of triggering the main feature.
Ted may contain the most bonus features we’ve ever seen on a slot machine and that’s good news as far as we’re concerned; the modifiers are triggered regularly and there are some big wins available in the Thunder Buddies Bonus. It’s very good stuff and it comes with an RTP of 95.81%.
