Ted Jackpot King Video Slot Review

Ted Jackpot King: Demo

After giving The Goonies a jackpot upgrade, Blueprint Gaming has done the same with its popular Ted slot. Ted Jackpot King is a 5 reel, 20 payline video slot that now offers a chance to land enormous progressive prizes. You’ll find the same massive range of extras as in the original which means 6 base game modifiers and 5 triggered feature rounds. They include transforming symbols, cash trails, free spins, streak spins and much else besides. Join the potty-mouthed bear from between 10p and £500 per spin.

Join the sweary bear

If you’re unfamiliar with the source material, the 2012 Ted film centred on the adventures of a potty-mouthed bear – it was rude, crude and very funny. That anarchic feel is maintained in the slot version which features the movie’s main characters including Tami Lynn and of course Ted himself which is the wild. The top symbol pays 25 times your bet if you land 5 across a payline.

6 base game features

As usual for one of Blueprint Gaming’s branded games, there’s a massive range of extras on offer in Ted Jackpot King, starting with the 6 base game modifiers that can hit at random on any spin.

  • Laser Gun Infectious Wilds feature – a hungover Ted wakes up after a snooze and starts blasting a laser gun at the reels. Any symbol that is hit turns wild. A payout consideration is then made.
  • Psychedelic Super Spin feature – the smoke from Ted’s bong covers the reels and new symbols are added. When the cannabis cloud clears, those symbols transform into the same symbol and a payout calculation follows.
  • Beer Streak feature – Ted sprays a can of lager onto the screen turning a losing combination into a winner.
  • Psychedelic Colossal Spin feature – more smoke spews out of Ted’s bong in this round. This time it will reveal a colossal 3×3 symbol and hopefully a new winning combination.
  • TV Remote Symbol Streak feature – in this streak respin round, the respins keep on coming as long as a matching symbol joins the original cluster.
  • Psychedelic Bonus Boost feature – look out here for extra Bonus symbols. This greatly enhances your chances of getting a spin of the main Bonus wheel.

Goodies galore from the Bonus Wheel

Land 3 or more Bonus symbols on the same spin and you’ll get a spin of the Bonus Wheel where the following 5 features are on offer:

  • Wheel of Fartune Bonus feature – this is a variation on the classic Wheel of Fortune style bonus. Multiplier prizes are awarded depending on where the pointer lands. Arrows can take you to inner wheels where bigger prizes and a move to the Big Money Bonus are on offer.
  • Bar Crawl Bonus feature – move along a board collecting prizes as you go in this classic cash trail. Again, you can progress to the Big Money Bonus if you collect 5 tokens.
  • Super Mart Free Spins feature – head to the supermarket where you’ll play out 5 free spins with wild extras.
  • Flash Free Spins feature – more free spins are on offer here. Look out for the special meter that can deliver extra cash prizes, more free spins and added wilds. Stop the flash on the meter above the reels to win the lit prize.
  • Big Money Bonus feature – potentially the best feature is the Big Money Bonus feature. Spin the carousel to land multiplier prizes. Then pick a Sale sign which can deliver even bigger rewards or more spins of the carousel.

If you don’t much fancy the bonus feature you’ve been awarded, you’ll have the chance to take a 50/50 gamble and try and improve it. If you lose, you’ll still get a consolation cash prize.

Jackpot King – big progressive prizes

The new element to Ted Jackpot King is the chance to land enormous progressive prizes. The jackpot round is triggered by landing 4 Jackpot King overlay symbols. You’ll then have to try and collect crowns and progress up the prize ladder. Reach the summit and potentially life-changing rewards can be won. With 3 jackpots up for grabs, they vary from casino to casino.

Rude & crude

The 2012 movie Ted was definitely an acquired taste. The swearing, farting and all-round anarchic nature of the movie won a cult audience but it wasn’t for everyone. You could say the same amount this slot adaptation. If you don’t like toilet humour, then you’ll likely give this a swerve.

If you don’t mind the theme, then the gameplay stacks up well, delivering plenty of variety. Add the potential riches on offer from the progressive prizes and Ted Jackpot King becomes a slot to consider. If you want slots based on films, Blueprint Gaming’s The Goonies and Microgaming’s Jurassic World my be my picks.
