Back in 2012, there was a film released about a young boy who wished that his Teddy Bear could come to life and become his friend. Rather than a Disney, child-friendly schmaltz fest, what instead we received was Seth MacFarlane’s wonderfully irreverent and definitely adult smash hit Ted.
Starring Mark Wahlberg as John Bennett and the delightful Mila Kunis as his long-suffering girlfriend, Seth MacFarlane himself voiced Ted, John’s Teddy Bear companion who has an alarming propensity towards the somewhat vulgar, distasteful and occasionally illegal.
Despite this, John and Ted’s friendship is so strong that eventually he is forced into a choice, does he ditch Ted, or say goodbye to his girlfriend (Kunis)?
The film was a smash hit success and despite its rather adult themes, has become a cult hit and spawned a 2015 sequel Ted 2. It has also become the focus for a fantastic new slot that you can play right now at Bet365 Casino developed by Blueprint Gaming and called simply Ted.
The slot boasts 5 reels and 20 paylines in play and it is stuffed to the brim with bonus features, with six different base game bonuses, each of which can be randomly triggered, as well as five different bonus games.
The presentation on the slot is superb with animations and sound that is as good as you will find in the movie itself. You can get the reels spinning from 20p up to £200 per spin and the backdrop to the reels is Ted’s living room, complete with empty beer cans.
It is fair to say that this is a more adult themed slot with the low value symbols on the reels being four playing card symbols (Jack through to the ace) whereas the higher value symbols include bongs, duckers, 6 packs of beer and Ted’s wife (whom he marries in the second film) Tami Lynn.
With a jackpot of 5,000 coins, this isn’t a huge amount but it is the gameplay of the slot which makes it so appealing and it is easy to see why this is fast becoming one of the most popular new slots at Bet365 Casino.
The base game rattles along at a lovely pace and it is livened up by plenty of funny dialogue and animations when you hit decent sized wins. Ted helps you land more wins as he is the Wild symbol which appears across the reels and can substitute for high and low value symbols to create additional wins.
There’s another logo to look out for and that is the Ted film logo which is super stacked across the reels and which, if you can land five on a payline, will offer you a payout of 25 times your stake for that payline, though of course, with this symbol being stacked, multiple payline wins are possible.
During the base game however, you can trigger any of six fantastic bonus features at any point. These are:
- Laser Gun Wilds feature – Which sees Ted shoot a laser gun at the reels, with the beam hitting symbols turning them Wild.
- Psychedelic Super Spin Feature – As Ted smokes his Hookah pipe, a number of Ted symbols are added ot the reels which will transform into the same symbol and reward you with multiple payline wins.
- Beer Streak Feature – Ted sprays beer over the reels covering them in froth, under which the symbol swill rearrange themselves into a new winning combination. This can occur more than once until all the beer bubbles pop and disappear.
- Psychedelic Colossal Spin Feature – This is similar to the second feature only when the smoke clears, three reels will combine into one colossal reel, which guarantees you a much bigger win.
- TV Remote Symbol Streak Feature – If you land a win, Ted can jump up and pick up his TV remote and will start pressing buttons which will respin the reels not part of the win until you get a win that cannot be improved.
- Psychedelis Bonus Boost Feature – As previously, Ted covers the reels in Smoke and during this bonus additional Bonus symbols are added to the reels, drastically increasing your chances of landing the lucrative Thunder Buddies bonus.
To trigger the Thunder Buddies Bonus feature, you need to land three or more of the Thunder Buddies logos across the reels. This feature is comprised of five separate bonus games and to decide which one you play, you spin a wheel at the start of the bonus to select the game.
The games you can play are as follows:
- Wheel of Fartune Bonus – In this bonus you pick from one of the Teds shown to reveal an arrow, multiplier boost or a spin. You add these selections to the reel until you select Spin. If you land on an arrow, you move to a higher payer inner reel. Land on a multiplier and you win a cash prize. Manage to hit arrows to the middle and you trigger the Big Money Bonus.
- Bar Crawl Bonus – This is a board game simulator where you move around the board by choosing bottles and you can land on spots on the board which offer a positive or negative outcome. The more positive you hit the better, until you hit Arrested which sees the feature end.
- Super Mart Free Spins Feature – You receive 5 free spins with Wilds all over the reels which change positions for each of the free spins. You can also add additional Wilds to the reels when the conveyor belt on which Ted is running stops.
- Flash Free Spins Feature – A Free Spins game where you earn prizes by climbing up the bonus grid. Possibly earning yourself a shot at the Big Money Bonus game.
- Big Money Bonus – Win up to 500 times your stake in this feature by picking the Sale sign that allows you to respin the carousel, offering you a cash win. However select the Collect sign and the round ends.
At the end of any of the five features outlined above, you can elect to gamble your winnings to try and unlock one of the other features, or to simply collect your cash.
