Ted Megaways is a 6 reel slot, with each reel varying in height. The number of symbols that make up a reel can change at random, with the potential for each reel to contain 7 symbols. There is also an additional row of symbols lying on top of reels 2-5. The game does not use traditional paylines, instead it operates with a maximum of 117,649 different possible “megaways”, playing from left to right.
Avalanches – Every time you form a win the symbols involved will disappear, existing symbols will drop down into those places and new symbols will be added at the top of the reels. Win again and the process will repeat and will continue doing so as ling as you keep landing wins.
The slot is based on the very film franchise that sees a bear with an attitude brought to life. He is a beer drinking, foul mouthed bear, very much in juxtaposition with his cuddly exterior.
Wild – The Wild symbol will substitute for all symbols other than the Bonus symbols, Mystery symbols and Scatters. Wild symbols can only appear on reels 2-5.
Bonus – The Bonus symbols are the “Thunder Buddies”. You need to land 4 of them anywhere on the reels at once to trigger the Free Spins feature.
Mystery Symbols – The Mystery symbol is the “/”. When Mystery symbols land on the reels they will open up and reveal the same symbol in their place. Scatters cannot be revealed.
– If you trigger the Free Spins with 4 Bonus symbols you will be given a choice of 2 different Free Spins modes to choose from. You can choose to play with 12 Free Spins, during which there will be a win multiplier that will increase by 1 every time you land a winning combination. Or you can choose to spin the Thunder Wheel, which will give you a random number of Free Spin and will apply a guaranteed minimum number of Megaways.
Upgraded Megaways – During the Free Spins you can collect “Ted” symbols, which will upgrade your Megaways. Also, every Bonus symbols above the required 4 to trigger the feature will also upgrade your Megaways. Upgraded Megaways give you additional spins and they increase the minimum number of Megaways that can land on each spin. You need to collect 3 of the “Ted” symbols in order to Upgrade your Megaways.
Mystery Bonus Buy – At any point you can choose to pay to play the Free Spins, depending on what region you are playing in. It will cost you 150x the bet to do so.
