Ted Megaways is a thoroughly enjoyable Megaways slot, based on the Hollywood blockbuster comedy

When the month is nearly over, there is one thing you can be certain of: a new Blueprint Gaming Megaways slot is about to be released.

Blueprint and Megaways slots seem to be the perfect marriage.

An 8-year old boy (John Bennet) wishes that his big teddy bear Ted becomes a living creature and friend. His wish comes true, 27 years later, though….

It all becomes more radical when Ted gets (or claims) more attention than John’s girlfriend (Lori). For Lori, there’s nothing else to do but end the relationship with John. Ted also gets a relationship with the stunning Tami-Lynn…

As you can guess, the slot is very entertaining. But so is the win potential!

With Ted Megaways, you can grab up to 50,000x the bet

It holds, as long as the maximum payout does not exceed 250 grand.

For example, if you bet a tenner (the maximum bet) and get the maximum win of 50,000x the bet, you won’t get paid out half a million, but “only” a quarter of a million.

Well, don’t we all want to have these kinds of luxury problems?

Ted Megaways slot – Gameplay and Features

Ted Megaways is a Megaways slot.

  • There are 6 reels with symbols, and above that, you have a top row with 4 symbols.
  • There are up to 117,649 Megaways.
  • You have the Avalanche (Cascading) mechanism, so you get a free re-spin after every winning combo.

The higher symbols are the Ted logo (green), Tami-Lynn, The Goose and the Cola bottles.

Ted itself, is the wild symbol, and only appears on the top row. This symbol replaces all symbols except the mystery symbols and the scatters.

You recognize the mystery symbols by a kind of lightning symbol. Sometimes Ted appears on the screen and shoots up to 100 mystery symbols on the reels.

How do you activate the free spins? Spin four or more scatters or buy the free spins with the Buy a Bonus Feature.

You get access to the Free Spins (here they are called the Thunder Buddies Bonus) if you spin four scatters.

Now you give a whirl on a giant wheel, to find out how many free spins you get AND what the guaranteed minimum number of Megaways is (during the free spins).

Alternatively, you can use the Buy a Bonus Feature to activate the free spins. You pay 150x the original bet. Indeed, a bit hefty.

The Free spins – try to get upgrades (a higher minimum number of Megaways).

The regular Free Spins are very similar to many other Megaways slots. After each winning combo, your multiplier increases by +1, and there are no limits. Also, here, you get a free re-spin after each winning combo.

What’s different here is the Megaways upgrade.  If you collect 3 Ted bears (which only appear on the top reel), you get AND extra free spins AND a Megaways upgrade.

The latter guarantees you a minimum number of Megaways, for the remaining free spins.

The steps are 1,000 Megaways, 2,000 Megaways, 5,000 Megaways, 10,000 Megaways, 20,000 Megaways, 50,000 Megaways and the maximum 117.649 Megaways.

Yes, you guessed it right! The combination of more Megaways and higher multipliers is the perfect recipe for some very lucrative wins!

Payout percentage (RTP)

The RTP is 96.03%, which is fine, but not spectacular.

Medium to high variance (volatility)

This online slot has a medium to high variance, according to Blueprint Gaming. We expect the most top wins to be around 500x to 1,000x the bet.

You can compare the variance to that of Rick and Morty Megaways and Safari Gold Megaways. It’s high, but not extremely high.

Wins above 1.000x, the bets will be very exceptional. Will you tell me if you get a win topping 5.000x the bet?

Pros and cons


  • Entertaining with a touch of humour.
  • Thanks to the free spins, your session can be very lucrative.
  • Thanks to the Buy a Bonus Feature, you get access to the free spins straight away.


  • In terms of gameplay, it’s not the most challenging Megaways slot.
  • In terms of features, a bit limited compared to the regular Ted slot.

So, who’ll like this slot? And who won’t?

It’s entertaining! It reminds you of the good old days when you were an 8-year-old boy.

The gameplay is not too complicated. Some players like it, but there are enough players that may get bored quickly.
