Established 2016

Ted Bingo

Established in 2016, Ted Bingo’s central character is a tux-wearing, secret agent bear splashed all over the site, making it especially amusing. This undercover-themed site offers substantial prizes and great games.

Ted Bingo used to be owned by Gibraltar-based Cassava, later subsumed into 888 Holdings, a well-known industry giant. In the UK, Ted Bingo is also operated by 888 and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. However, in 2017, 888 came under UKGC fire for breaches of responsibility codes in relation to self-exclusion and customer interaction.

Ted Bingo at a Glance

  1. FUN SIDE-STORY - United Kingdom players, follow site mascot Ted (the secret agent) Teddy Bear through escalating, fun-filled adventures as you play.
  2. APPEALING WINDOW PANE UX - See how many players from the United Kingdom and other countries are in each bingo room, the minimum wager, jackpot, and gameplay time from color-coded portals on the main site pages.
  3. HUGE SELECTION OF GAMES - Many options for bingo gameplay, plus dozens of popular slot games from top providers for United Kingdom gamblers.
  4. REASONABLE LICENSING - Licensed by the Gibraltar Gaming Commission, and (for UK players) the UK Gambling Commission. Gibraltar-based gameplay possibilities seem almost as fuzzy as the teddy bear mascot.
  5. LIMITED ACCESSIBILITY - Long list of restricted countries, sadly including the US.

About Ted Bingo

What Software and Games Does Ted Bingo Have?

Software

Like many online casino sites, Ted Bingo draws its software from multiple great vendors: 

Eyecon

Eyecon was founded in 1997 as a computer game company, pivoting to online casino products in 1999. 

Purchased by Playtech in 2017 for £50 million and headquartered in Brisbane, Australia with satellite offices on Guernsey in the Channel Islands, Eyecon initially offered slots seen exclusively on bingo sites. As an example, Fluffy Favorites was especially popular on bingo sites, and featured only on Playtech’s competitor sites before the merger. Other popular Eyecon slots include 99 Time, Past the Post, Stampede, Striker Goes Wild, and Sugar Train.  

IGT

International Gaming Technology is one of the oldest and best-loved names in online gambling software, having originated in Nevada in 1975 to make casino technology and slot machines. 

NetEnt

Ted Bingo prominently features software by NetEnt. This Swedish company has been a leader in online gambling software since 1996 and also operates an office in Malta, as well as around the world, with over 200 employees. 

Evolution

Another Sweden-based games developer, Evolution is a massive and well-trusted market player with over 7,300 employees scattered across Europe and North America. Only in business since 2006, Evolution distributes games to over 200 operators.

NextGen Gaming

This Australian company, founded in 1999, is also a popular brand among players and distributes software to 67 online casinos.

Playtech & SG Interactive

Playtech pioneered omni-channel gambling with Playtech ONE, one of the first online casino experiences to enjoy on mobile, desktop, and retail locations with one unified account. Founded in 1999, they are one of the top suppliers of online gambling services. 

Games Available

Bingo

Well, it goes without saying--but we’re saying it--that bingo takes center stage on Ted Bingo, with window panes on each page acting as portals into various bingo games. These portals display the number of players, minimum wager, jackpot, and time remaining, along with a link players can click to join the game.

90-Ball Bingo

Various jackpots are available in the classic 90-Ball Bingo game that’s most popular in the UK. Players compete to fill lines on a series of three-row bingo cards, with prizes available for filling one line, two lines, and the full card (“full house”).

75-Ball Bingo

More popular in America, 75-Ball Bingo features three cards with 25 squares each, the center box remaining a free space. Players compete to fill lines of five—up, down, or diagonal—and other patterns. The odds are worse, but the potential payouts are bigger than on the 90-ball variant.

52-Ball Bingo

An interesting twist, this, with 52 Ball Bingo using playing cards instead of balls (hence the “52”), borrowing elements from both 90-ball and 75-ball games to make a unique game.

Speed Bingo

Also known as “30-Ball Bingo,” this newcomer to the bingo scene is the perfect bingo game for commuters and people pressed for time. Each game only lasts thirty seconds max! Now you see it--now you don’t!

Swedish Bingo

This variant on the 75-ball card induces players to try to cover five specific numbers, sequenced vertically, to win.

Jackpot Bingo

Many games available at Ted Bingo offer large jackpots, including progressive jackpots (jackpots that get bigger the more it is played--like an accruing rollover).

Free Bingo

A number of free bingo games on Ted Bingo offer players opportunities to win cash.

Slots

While it currently does not offer any table games, Ted Bingo makes up for it with its prodigious selection of video slots that criss-cross genres with popular offerings from some of the biggest electronic game developers.

Slot offerings at Ted Bingo include: 

  • Irish Luck. The “luck of the Irish” is all the rage in games of chance. This Irish-themed high-variance video slot by Playtech features 5 reels and 30 paylines trimmed in gold, green, and rainbow graphics.

 

  • Gods of Gold. 888 brings Greek mythology to life across 25 paylines with appealing, stylized blocky beards, columns, and bacchanals.

 

  • Temple of Iris. The gold-trimmed halls of Ancient Egypt come to life in the Eyecon offering with five reels and 25 paylines, along with a Gamble feature offering players the chance to multiply their winnings by a Pharaoh-worthy 400%.

 

  • Rainbow Riches. Barcrest weighs in on the lucky Leprechaun imagery with five reels, ten paylines, and 18 chances to win a jackpot of up to 25,000 coins. Scatter and wild icons also abound, plus a bonus round called Pick Me.

 

  • Starburst. This wildly popular video slot by NetEnt features icons similar to “Bejeweled” — trippy astronomical gemstones organized across five reels and 10 paylines with up to a 50,000 coin jackpot. The soothing sounds of this video slot also make it relaxing to play at home or on the road.

 

  • Shaman’s Dream. Eyecon put together this Native-American-themed video slot game with five reels, 25 paylines and an autoplay feature so you can load up your bets, kick back, and watch the dream unfold.

 

  • Jungle Spirit. Jungle Spirit: The Call of the Wild by NetEnt skips the usually payline system in this animal-kingdom-themed video slot in favor of a 243-ways system where any left-to-right matching line pays out.

 

  • Dead or Alive II. This deceptively simple game by NetEnt features bank-heist imagery and gameplay options with the potential to multiply your bet by up to 100,000x.

 

  • Stampede. Betsoft sets this lushly animated slot game on the African savannah, with five reels and 1,024 winning combinations.

 

  • Cleopatra II. IGT stocks this Egyptian-themed slot game with lush imagery and vibrant colors, along with 20 paylines and up to 10,000 coins for the winning each spin.

 

  • Pyramid: Quest for Immortality. Built around the ancient Egyptian belief that the Pharaohs will be resurrected as gods, this NetEnt slot game gives you the opportunity to resurrect bets starting at just 0.1 coins up to a maximum 3,600,000-coin prize.

 

  • Zeus III. This Greek mythology-themed video slot game by WMS offers a non-traditional  pyramid reel structure with a whopping 192 paylines! 

 

  • Lost Island. Filled with rich tropical-island imagery, Lost Island from NetEnt offers 60 different ways to bet on each spin of five reels, including scatter symbols and the opportunity to multiply your stake 100x.


Can I Play Ted Bingo On My Mobile Phone?

Ted Bingo offers an iOS app, allowing iPad and iPhone users to take the gameplay of Ted Bingo wherever they go. All games from the desktop site are available in the swift and intuitively designed mobile app. Your account, including credentials, bankroll, bonuses, and VIP perks, transfers from mobile to desktop and back seamlessly, with no new account required to switch to and from desktop and mobile.

Android users are out of luck in the sense that no dedicated Ted Bingo Android app is available. However, users can easily navigate to tedbingo.com using their mobile web browser. There, they will find that tedbingo.com is mobile-responsive, re-sorting its layout to be mobile-friendly when it detects the smaller screen of a mobile device. The mobile-optimized version of Ted Bingo is lightweight and fast-loading, with all the same great games available.

What Bonuses and Promotions Does Ted Bingo Have?

Welcome Bonus

Ted Bingo used to have a fairly lucrative welcome bonus of 700% of your first deposit. Of course, this bonus was limited to a £70 total on a deposit of £10, leaving you with £80 to play with. Not exactly eye-popping, but acceptable and interesting enough. That was then...

Well, times must be somewhat leaner nowadays, since the welcome bonus has come down to earth and now offers 400%, still on a matched bonus basis, with £10 deposited for a total of £40 bonus cash and a starting bankroll of £50. 

Ted Bingo sweetens the deal with ten free spins, but even that doesn’t break the bank as far as extras go. These days, you don’t sign up to Ted Bingo to be wowed by the sign-up bonus.

Ted does also offer up to £500 cashback bonuses each month, however--plus VIP prize draws.

Like all online casino sign-up bonuses, the Ted Bingo bonus is limited to first-time account holders, as verified by the standard background check. 

The following promos are offered--but it’s hard to see who is eligible for them:

£777 Jackpot

This promotion is offered daily, offering that nice number stacked with lucky sevens.

Mystery Jackpot

Another daily winner! Whoo!

Um, what is it, though? No idea! 

VIP Lounge

VIP members only, £500 jackpot every night at midnight.

X Multiplier

Up to £10,000 in winnings, every Saturday at 10pm.

Self-Made Millionaire

£1 million in potential winnings, every third Saturday at 10 p.m.

Seeing Double

Double-agents only--check in with Ted the bear while you’re about--can win £1,000 Fridays at 9pm.


Loyalty Rewards

The loyalty program at Ted Bingo is called Diamond Club. It consists of four tiers of escalating rewards and bonuses, from lowest to highest:

  • Ruby
  • Sapphire
  • Emerald
  • Diamond

The Diamond Club offers a fast-track to Ted Bingo’s elevated VIP status for members of select VIP programs with other sites. Check and see if your other online casino VIP status transfers to Diamond Club when you join Ted Bingo.

Diamond Club members have access to VIP benefits through Ted Bingo, including:

  • Cash bonus upgrades up to £200.
  • 15% cash back from your losses, payable every Thursday (the barely-hidden expectation is that you will use your cash back to game over the weekend).
  • Bankroll boosts, including lower minimum deposits, higher minimum withdrawals, and lower wagering requirements.
  • VIP games and private rooms with enhanced bonuses and bigger prizes.
  • VIP luxury gifts and bonuses, on your birthday, other occasions, or just as a reward for extensive gameplay.
  • VIP manager, a dedicated professional you can contact for fast service and answers to questions.

What Deposit Methods Does Ted Bingo Offer?

Ted Casino offers a number of ways to fund your bankroll, including:

  • Phone. Deposit to your bankroll with the help of a phone agent.
  • Credit Card. Ted Bingo accepts in-app or onsite funding for your bankroll by Visa or MasterCard in the applicable currency. (Note: In the UK, funding gambling by credit card becomes illegal from mid-April 2020). 
  • Debit Card. Visa debit cards are accepted at Ted Bingo, often with faster posting times than credit cards.
  • PayPal. The venerable, trusted mobile wallet can be used to fund your Ted Bingo bankroll in any applicable currency. Players will love this.
  • Apple Pay. This Apple-branded mobile wallet can be used to quickly and easily add money to your account with Ted Bingo.
  • Wire Transfer. Ted Bingo does accept wire transfers in all applicable currencies.

Ted Bingo can process deposits as British Pounds (GBP), US Dollars (USD), Canadian Dollars (CAD) or Euros (EUR).

What Withdrawal Methods Does Ted Bingo Offer?

Ted Bingo players have several options to withdraw from their bankroll--including winnings and bonus cash--once Terms and Conditions are satisfied. Withdrawal options include:

  • Credit Card. Two days’ processing time, five days’ withdrawal, 4-7 business days total.
  • Debit Card. Two days’ processing, five days’ withdrawal time,  4-7 business days total.
  • UK MasterCard. Two days’ processing, two to three days’ withdrawal, 3-5 business days total.
  • PayPal. Two days’ processing, four to seven days’ withdrawal, 7-10 business days total.
  • Wire Transfer. Two days’ processing time, two to three days’ withdrawal time, 4-5 business days total.

Players should be aware of a £3,000 monthly withdrawal limit, somewhat painful if you win big!

Is Ted Bingo a Safe Place to Play?

Sites like Ted Bingo endure criticism as “gateway” sites for problem gambling. Bingo is not the most lucrative online gambling activity, so bingo sites offer side games, where the companies earn bigger. Ted Bingo offers information on problem gambling, but they don’t stay in business by dissuading problem gamblers.

This undoubtedly accounts for why, in 2017, 888 Holdings--who own Ted Bingo and operate its UK online casino--fell foul of the UKGC by not adhering to the self-imposed limits set by problem gamblers. For this, 888 won itself a tasty requirement to pay compensation to the gamblers involved. We hope this has made 888 more responsible.

Ted Bingo also seems to have fallen into online gambling companies’ merger trend, with big names such as 888 and Cassava forming conglomerates in lower-regulation territories like Gibraltar, potentially undermining gaming fairness and competition. The fact that UKGC oversees British-based gameplay is therefore a big bonus for UK players. 

Then there’s the issue of withdrawals; Ted’s withdrawal limits are a shock, since players should have access to their money regardless of when they want it. Where does this leave elderly people who win a big payout and may not live long enough to see it banked? Staged payouts may also indicate some liquidity concerns.

And finally, Ted cites a long list of restricted countries: Albania, Antigua and Barbuda, Armenia, Australia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Gibraltar, Hungary, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malaysia, Moldova, Montenegro, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, Ukraine, United States.

Did you catch Gibraltar on that list? Yes, Ted Bingo, published by Gibraltar-based companies Cassava Enterprises and 888 Holdings, excludes residents and visitors of … Gibraltar. At least, to the best of our information. Perhaps an oversight?

Alas, a written inquiry to customer support brought no response either.

Bottom Line

Ted Bingo offers a tempting array of bingo and slot games from a variety of excellent providers, and offers large wins and fun promotions. The welcome bonus leaves something to be desired, but various daily, weekly, and monthly jackpots keep things interesting.

What makes this site extra fun are the portals into games in progress that tempt you to join the action. It's a very nice touch and a cool piece of UX. The site also offers 24/7 support, just the thing you want. Following the adventures of Ted the Spy Bear also makes a good impression--although how he can spy when he appears to have no eyes, is… a secret?.

Gameplay is smooth on desktop or mobile devices, and the fact you can monitor the state of play on games easily is alluring. Games in progress are visible on the home page and others, noting the time left to wager, number of players, and minimum wager, as well as the size of the jackpot for progressive bingo games. 

It’s a good site, sadly with a few areas of contention to overcome for maximum trust.
