The entertainment world is known to draw inspiration for indulgences from other famous works of art. Some books inspire films, video games that inspire TV shows, and TV series that inspire slot machines. This article focuses on the latter category to explore the seven best slots that are based on TV series.


Ted

Ted is one of the most successful American comedy films and was released in 2012. The film, which was directed and written by Seth MacFarlene, follows the unlikely tale of a stuffed bear that comes to life after the lonely boy John Bennett makes a wish. Ted and John become best friends, but in adulthood, the story adds a twist of bromance vs romance. The clever use of adult humour in the film made it so successful that a sequel was released in 2015. This time, the story focused on Ted as he went on a civil rights battle to be known as a man rather than a property.

Blueprint Gaming, one of the top-tier online gaming software developers, recognized the success of the comedy series and released the Ted slot machine in March of 2017. The game focuses on the stuffed bear only and makes use of his vulgar personality to deliver entertainment. For most of the game, Ted is asleep on his couch with a five by three grid hanging over his head and empty beer bottles scattered all around. The grid spins with bets of between 0.20 and 200 credits on all 20 play lines. With each spin, players can land any of the following combinations, whose values are then multiplied by the use line bets:

Even after the death of Pablo Escobar in the second season, Narcos chose to continue with the series as it depicts the life of other dangerous drug lords as far as Mexico. The show has earned throngs of diehard fans since its release because it follows a true story with dramatisation. Therefore, it is no surprise that NetEnt introduced the TV series to online casinos with a slot of the same name.

Narcos slot machine is filled with as much as action as the series, but its visuals have a cartoon twist that makes it a little different from what punters see in the series. The branded slot does not disappoint with a lot of action depicted by the main characters Pablo, Javier Pena, Steve Murphy, Connie Murphy, and Gonzalo Gacha. Even the poker face cards A, K, Q, and J get a violent twist with guns, grenades, and wads of cash scattered around them. The symbols appear on a five by three grid placed in the middle of a Medellin street with houses flanking each side and a drug plane flying overhead from time to time.

  • Wild – it is denoted by a special agent budge and replaces others to complete payout combinations. It also awards the fixed jackpot of 300 times the line bet for a combination of five.
  • Walking wild – it appears in both the base and free spins round. It shifts horizontally to the left after each turn.
  • Drive-By Feature – it triggers randomly after any spin where a car drives by, shoots at the symbols, transforming some high-value ones into wild icons.
  • Locked Up Symbol – Pablo serves as this character, and when three or more of them appear on a row, a multiplier of one to ten times is applied on the bet value.
  • Free Spins – activates when three or more car scatters appear anywhere on the playtable.


Game of Thrones

The battle is spearheaded by four influential houses known as Stark, Targaryen, Lannister, and Baratheon.

  • Lannister – ten free spins and four-times multiplier
  • Stark – fourteen freebies and three-times multiplier
  • Targaryen – eighteen free spins and two-times multiplier
