Ted Bingo Casino Review
Have you ever wanted to become a spy? Yes? Well, it seems that Ted Bingo Casino gives you a chance to become as cool as James Bond! Or maybe not. You will definitely experience some thrill since the selection of games is wide enough to keep you busy. You can even put your black suit and bow tie on. But don’t think that you will get a luxury car and a beautiful girl right after you create an account there - the welcome bonus is just a pittance (a 200% Bingo bonus up to £40)! Other than that and the state-of-the-maddening-art lobby (we’ll tell you more about it a bit later), we got no serious problems with Ted Bingo Casino. The games provided by NetEnt, Nextgen and some other developers are cool, so is the website.
- License from the UK;
- Certificate from eCOGRA;
- 24/7 live chat;
- Mobile friendly;
- Live dealer games;
- Nice wagering requirement for the Bingo Bonus - 3xD+B.
- Getting a jackpot prize will take you 2 years;
- The welcome bonus is not very inspiring;
- Neteller is available to you only in case you live in the UK.
Ted Bingo casino is a home to the first and only top-secret undercover bear-spy Ted. It has just opened (in 2016) and is operated by Cassava Enterprises (a subsidiary of 888 Holdings). It is licensed by both the UK and the Government of Gibraltar, and stamped “safe and fair” by eCOGRA.
The website looks pretty, with clean design and the bear-mascot everywhere. When it comes to the games though, it gets confusing. First, there are games on the website itself (all under the Slots tab for some reason). Then there’s a Game Lobby, which opens in a different window (where you see only bingo rooms), and within this lobby there’s the small “show all games” button. When you click it, yet another window pops up, with what finally looks like what we wanted in the first place. This is like a freaking Russian nesting doll - when does it end?!

Customer Support: Support is available 24/7 through the live chat and email, and from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. via phone (toll-free for the UK).
Banking: The deposit and withdrawal methods are standard: PayPal, Neteller, credit cards, Wire Transfer, and several more. Withdrawals remain pending for around 48 hours. Keep in mind that Neteller is available to you only in case you live in the UK. Besides, if you win a jackpot prize, it will take you 2 years to get it. First, you will receive 20% of the amount. Then, the casino will pay you out the rest of the prize - you will get 23 equal monthly installments.
Software and Game Variety
Once you handle the weirdo game lobby, it turns out that the games collection is pretty nice. They have titles from Netent, Nextgen, WMS, Eyecon, 888 Gaming and more. Here are some of them:
- Slots: Doctor Love, Gonzo’s Quest, Wonder Woman;
- Jackpots: Millionaire Genie, Pirates Millions, Gods of Gold;
- Casino games: Baccarat, Roulette, Blackjack;
- Scratch cards: Royal Charm, Lucky Irish, Mega Love.
Obviously, there is also a section with Bingo games.
Mobile and Live Games
Mobile compatibility is hardly a huge achievement these days, especially for the newer casinos. Ted Bingo Casino predictably works great on modern smartphones and tablets, regardless of the device.
The casino offers a pretty good selection of live games - almost two dozen! The variety includes Blackjack, Roulette, Caribbean Stud Poker and few more games.
Bonuses and Promotions
Alright, the welcome bonus. “Add £10 and play with £40!” is written in huge letters on the promotion page. We know, this doesn’t sound very impressive, and things don’t get better when you check the details.
So, when you get to the promotion page, you’ll find out that your first deposit bonus (you’ll have to deposit at least £10) consists of a 200% Bingo bonus up to £40 and 10 tickets for the £777 jackpot. The wagering requirement for the Bingo bonus is fine - 3 times the sum of your deposit and bonus.
Check out other promos as well, they tend to change regularly. As for VIP program - there’s currently none (“Coming soon!”).
