Exactly five years after Ted from the movie of the same name was first introduced, the x-rated teddy bear has reborn in a mobile slot. The slot was called – you guessed it – TED.
Aside from being a really exciting game with lots of features and ways to win, the fans of the movie will easily remember its best moments from the gameplay. Featuring actual voice-overs from the movie and Ted himself, this slot will be a unique experience for everyone.
TED Mobile Slot Review
This isn’t the first mobile slot by Blueprint Gaming that is based on popular movies. Naturally, TED shows a good deal of progress in terms of gameplay and overall quality. The slot uses the usual 5×3 reel layout with 20 paylines.
The symbols include objects and characters from the film: Ted’s girlfriend Lori, ducker, a pack of beer, a bong and card symbols. While the wins aren’t that frequent, bonus features can easily make you rich. The max win per spin is staggering £250,000!
|Bet Size||£0.2 – £500*|
*depending on the currency and operator limits, the actual maximum bet may be lower, but that doesn’t affect the maximum win
You’ll usually have to land a combo of at least two or three symbols from left to right to win. There’s also a wild symbol which depicts none other than Ted himself and substitutes for any other symbols, except the scatter. Meanwhile, there’s an actual Ted hanging out just outside the reels.
If you saw the movie, you know that Ted is a little unpredictable and this makes an exciting mobile slot. Although he often sleeps right below the reels, he will sometimes wake up to smoke his bong, fire lasers or do some other crazy stuff which will affect your game in one way or another. Here’s everything that could happen:
- Laser Gun Wilds: Ted will wake up and shoot at the reels from a laser gun; the laser will bounce around the grid, creating wild symbols in its wake
- Psychedelic Super Spin: Ted will smoke a bong which will create a number of Ted symbols on the reels; all the Ted symbols will then change into another matching symbol, resulting in wins on multiple lines
- Beer Streak: Ted will spray beer on winning symbols, which will cause them to shuffle and form another winning combination; this will usually repeat a few times in a row
- Psychedelic Colossal Spin: Ted will blow smoke on the reels which will merge first three reels into a single reel, resulting in guaranteed wins
- TV Remote Symbol Streak: Ted will mash his TV remote to re-spin the reels, while the previous win remains sticky in the grid until no new winning symbols are added to the combination
- Psychedelic Bonus Boost: Ted will smoke his bong while the reels are spinning to create lots of cluster symbols in them, increasing the chance of a bonus round
Talking about the bonus round, you need to land at least three cluster symbols to activate it. The bonus round starts from a mini-game that will decide which one of the five bonus rounds will be activated.
Wheel Of Fortune
As the name says, you’ll get to spin the wheel of fortune, which has bet multipliers and other bonus features. There are also multiple levels on the wheel and you can get to the inner levels by landing on arrows. The closer to the centre you are, the greater are the rewards. If you manage to get to the centre, the Big Money bonus will activate.
Bar Crawl Bonus
This bonus is a mini board game where you collect bottles as you travel on the board. You can get multipliers, various other awards and Big Money Bonus on top if you manage to avoid an arrest and reach the end.
Super Mart Extra Spins
You’ll be given five extra spins in the super mart where the shelves behind the grid are stacked with Ted symbols (wilds). When a spin has landed, the super mart background will also stop. The wild symbols on the shelves will then transfer to the corresponding places on the grid, resulting in juicy wins.
Ted Extra Spins
A fixed number of extra spins will be awarded on a 5×4 grid, where the top line features various bonuses such as cash, extra wilds or extra spins. After each spin, the player will get a single bonus from the top line in addition to the main grid winnings. As extra spins progress, the bonuses at the top get better as well.
Ted will find himself surrounded by multipliers spinning around him. Once they stop, the player will get the corresponding multiplier. Then, the player will have to choose from the two signs, which will reveal either COLLECT or RESPIN. In the first case, the bonus is over and in the second case, it continues until the COLLECT sign is selected.
By the way, when you win a bonus, you can always gamble for a better one, as the average payout of each is very different. The wheel of fortune offers the lowest rewards, while Big Money bonus is simply crazy.
Why Should You Play TED?
The obvious reason here is that it has lots of bonuses. There’s so much to explore, you might play for hours and not get to see everything it has to offer.
Keeping that in mind, it’s more exciting for those, who want a complex mobile slot with a variety of features rather than TED fans. And this says a lot about a game that is based on a movie and actually pulls this off. If you liked the movie, you’ll want to play this slot again and again…
