The Wombat says: Remember the film Ted? Starring Mark Wahlberg and his former childhood companion teddy bear, who twenty-something years later turned into his foul-mouthed stoner drinking & tv buddy who’s got more underhand manouevres than the Skull Duggery slot on a dark night? Yes it wasn’t an intellectual movie that’s for sure. Actually it was so puerile that this Wombat had to watch it three times…he kind of reminds me of someone….
Anyway, here it is in all it’s cheeky glory turned into a top-notch game called the Ted Slot. Let’s take a look!
Look and Feel
The reels are set in Ted’s and Mark’s bachelor pad and there is a party is taking place in the background: Ted the teddy bear is lying in foreground, surrounded by a solid day’s work worth of empty beer cans. This ain’t no Great Wild Elk slot machine! Good times. From time to time, boozy Ted awakes and makes some dismissive comments on the game only to pass out again. Overall, great sharp 3D graphics that you’d come to expect from brand new games these days.
Ted slot is brought to us by Blueprint Gaming, who are still new kids on the slot block. Ted is a 5 reel game with 3 rows and 20 paylines, the high value symbols on your reels include; John’s (aka Mark Wahlberg) girlfriend Lori, a swan, some bottles of beer, Ted’s favourite bong and the game’s logo, which acts as Wild and will do its usual job. Then your lower symbols are completed by the standard J, Q, K and A playing cards.
This slot really has a lot going on, both visually and on the game features. It’s a total treat. Yes, sometimes we feel like playing a more traditional game like the Fruit Spin slot machine for instance, but if you want total entertainment, Ted is yer man! He’s a real chuckle.
