If you had the option to cherry pick one online slots developer to translate your film or cartoon onto the reels, Blueprint Gaming would be up there among the top choices. With a string of successful adaptations like Top Cat and Jungle Jackpots: Mowgli’s Wild Adventure under its belt, Seth MacFarlane’s Ted Slot is in good hands for this five reel, 20 pay-line slot based on the hit movie. Grab yourself a brewski and strap yourself in. Or should that be on?
Ted isn’t known for his bouts of vigorous activity so seeing him lying comatose in front of our five reels is no surprise. The party blazes on behind, but our hero does spring to life at various points throughout the game with some hilarious quips from the movie. He especially delivers on this front during the bonus features, of which there are several. The base game, though, is populated by Beers, Bongs, Ducks and, erm, Ladies – just what Ted would want for a lively night in – as our high-paying gaming symbols. Jacks through Aces do the honours as our low-payers, and MacFarlane’s trademark jazzy ditties accompany our gameplay nicely. The Ted Logo appears Stacked and takes a bow as the slot’s top-paying symbol, while Ted himself is, fittingly, our Wild symbol.
Blueprint Gaming loves a good bonus feature. Or rather, it loves including several bonus features, both randomly-triggered and Scatter-activated, in its slot titles. The Ted online slot has both in abundance. Ted can, at any point, spring into life from his snoozy position beneath the reels. Perhaps hallucinogen-induced. The random modifiers he can whap onto our reels include Lazer Gun Infectious Wilds, Beer Shuffle, TV Streak, Psychedelic Super Spin, Psychedelic Colossal Spin and Psychedelic Bonus Boost. All this psychedelic action perhaps explains Ted’s sudden bursts of activity.
And then no longer have we drawn breath than Ted swans in with his Thunder Buddies Bonus feature. This level-based bonus game will see us bag one of five separate bonus features when we land three Thunder Buddies Scatters anywhere across the reels. The Wheel of Fortune, Bar Crawl Bonus, S.Mart Free Spins, Ted Free Spins and Ted Big Money Bonus all sound appealing and all have their nuances, but a shot at leveling-up to the Big Money Bonus during any of the other features gives us fair shouts at whopping wins.
The Ted online slot gives us plenty to look forward to, either as a fan of the movie or just a slots fan in general. The allusions to drug-taking and orgies might not be everyone’s cup of salty milk, but it’s not as in your face as Ted would doubtless like it so even the most mild-mannered of slots fans can still find plenty to enjoy here. Overall, Ted has to go down as a five star release.
