The Wombat says: Remember the box office smash movie Ted? This buddy movie with a serious twist stars Mark Wahlberg and his former childhood companion a teddy bear, TED. So far that sounds pretty normal right? Wrong, in this different take on a buddy movie the action is set twenty-something years later only the teddy bear has turned into a delinquent dirt bag! Ted, the unlike hero of the movie, is a foul-mouthed stoner, who loves to booze and comes with more underhand manoeuvres than the Skull Duggery slot on a dark night!
Yes it wasn’t an intellectual movie that’s for sure, this game is light relief from life’s woes and reminds us all of what good slot play is all about- having some serious fun! Actually it was so good that this Wombat had to watch it three times…he kind of reminds me of someone….I just can’t quite work out who?
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 is lying in foreground, surrounded by a solid day’s work worth of empty beer cans, that has to be a soft toy record! 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.
For fans of the Ted movie, this slot has been strongly influenced by the vibe of the film, this is a boy’s world where the theming is distinctly low down, dirty fun. Just the kind of fun we like to sample from time to time at Wombat Towers!
Your game play will be helped along but the strains of some super upbeat movie type music, with a selection of electronic sound effects. Did I mention that our potty mouthed plushie pal Ted offers a running commentary to parts of the game including some bad language? Prepare to blush, giggle and win.
Ted slot is brought to us by Blueprint Gaming, who are still relatively new kids on the slot block but with games of this quality they can expect to continue to build their fan base. Encore!
Ted is a 5 reel game with 3 rows and 20 pay-lines which you can play on your pc or mobile device- why not slouch on a comfy sofa like Ted and have a quick chill out?
The high value symbols on your reels that will start kicking off your money making action include; John’s long suffering (aka Mark Wahlberg) girlfriend Lori, a swan, some bottles of beer, a bong and a the game’s logo. The logo symbol comes with shiny extra appeal. If you land the logo it can become stacked, a stack of five of these would give a sweet treat in the shape of a 500 coins cash gift.
The game’s Wild is Ted himself. If you’re feeling fortunate and land five Teds on an active pay-line you can expect a welcome cash boost of 500 coins-now that got your attention, right? The Wild icon substitutes for all symbols except for the Thunder Buddies Bonus.
Your lower value icons are completed by the standard J, Q, K and A of 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.
Ted Bonus Extras
This is where Ted slot really shines wombat fans! This slot is jam packed with 5 bonuses and not one, but 6 extra features are waiting for you! This is nearly unbear-lievable!
First there is the Thunder Buddies Bonus, which is triggered by landing 3x or more of the Bonus Scatter symbols. Ted will then start flicking through the TV with a giant remote control and start up his own wheel of fortune, which will determine which 1 of possible 5 features to you’ll play with:
You could find yourself playing the following side games:
Bar Crawl Bonus (check out how inviting that name is?)
Select between beer bottles to move around the board and collect win multipliers. There are special squares along your route which award extra prizes as well as an entry to the Big Money Bonus where you’ll win even greater multipliers. No wonder that bear is such a buddy!
Super Mart Free Spins
These free spins scoop you 5 free spins on a set of reels with a background of moving supermarket shelves. Here you’ll see Ted running on a check out conveyor belt, as the belt moves so the Wild symbols on these shelves will move around to the corresponding positions on the reels and make you more winning chances.
Ted Free Spins
Gives you a number of spins on a 5×4 set of reels. After each spin a bonus will be awarded from the grid above; these bonuses gradually improve as the spins progress. Better still, you can be gifted further free spins within this mode.
It’s straight into the Big Money Bonus for you, with the chance to snatch a massive x500 multiplier! Here Ted is standing next to a selection of different multipliers; these will spin and where they stop you gain that multiplier. You will also pick from one of two “Sale” signs which will reveal a handy re-spin of the multipliers on offer as prizes or you’ll find “Collect” which will chuck of you out of the feature! Cheers Ted! You’re a legend (kind of).
Wheel Of Fortune
Pick a Ted to reveal an arrow, multiplier boost or spin and play the Wheel to try and reach the Big Money bonus.
Ted’s Random Modifiers
Every now and then during the base game Ted wakes up from his beer-induced slumber. When the sleeping beauty awakes he randomly triggers one of the following six game modifiers:
Laser Gun Wilds
Watch out! Ted will jump up from the couch and fire a laser gun at the reels, turning symbols Wild.
Psychedelic Super Spin
Ted wakes up, goes straight for his trusted bong and immerses the reels in smoke. This will cause a number of special Ted symbols to be added the reels and eventually form a cluster of line wins. What a buddy!
After any winning spin, Ted will spray his can of beer all over the reels, submerging the symbols in beer froth. This soaking will cause the symbols to shuffle around and enable new winning combination. Who said being naughty doesn’t pay?
Psychedelic Colossal Spin
More bong action from Ted. He’ll take a deep puff and immerse the reels in smoke. Now three of the reels will then turn into one colossal reel which will, in turn, guarantees colossal wins. Sweet!
TV Remote Symbol Streak
After any winning combination, Ted can jump up and start bashing furiously at the buttons on a TV remote. This causes the reels to re-spin, while usefully, holding the initial win symbols in position.
Psychedelic Bonus Boost
Yet again, Ted grabs his trusty bong and blows smoke over the reels which causes a number of additional bonus symbols to be added the reels.
Just like the movie, this slot offers tons of entertainment. Blueprint Gaming are out to make a name for themselves and with this fun house of a slot they have exceeded all expectations.
During the base game the chances for chunky wins are on the slim side – but then, with all the bonus games and extra features is it any wonder? We love this game, and would even go as far to say that it’s going to become a real slot classic, even if you haven’t seen the movie.
Go and join Ted on his couch Wombat Fans, for some pawesome wins!
