Ted Bingo opened in May 2016 on the Dragonfish software platform utilizing the most up to date software version available, plus it promises lots of extra features exclusive to the brand each and every month.
These features include a nice welcome bonus and a Ted Prize Wheel for added bonuses for regular players.
The design of the site is classy and stylish and those expecting a crass character like the one from the Seth McFarlane films with Mark Whalberg will be disappointed. This Ted is a handsome brown bear in the style of James Bond – all sports cars, Martini’s, parachutes and casinos.
One thing to watch for is many prizes in the games stating ‘up to’. These are generally sliding jackpot games and the more balls that are called the lower the prize pot gets to a set minimum.
The site is attempting to create more winners by giving away up to £10,000 in prizes every month – each special game or event can be found in the ‘My Offers‘ section when you’re logged in.
This site wants you to keep coming back so when you top up your account you unlock 2 days of free bingo games! In addition to a decent welcome offer you will find competitions, monthly giveaways and big games, great prizes and more. Always check out the Promotions tab for all the latest information.
The rooms are not overly busy, so this is a great time to get on board a progressive and forward thinking site where the player is of paramount importance.

The layout of the mobile version of the site is simple and easy to understand. The navigation bar is located at the bottom of the screen and splits up the content into four categories – ‘Games’, ‘Bingo’ , ‘Offers’ and ‘More’. In fact, by June 2017 the desktop lobby was laid out in much the same way as the mobile version to make it even easier to move from one to the other.
Slot games and instant win games are all under the ‘Games’ section, with a huge selection to choose from, such as Rainbow Riches, Gonzo’s Quest, Action Bank and Cleopatra.
The bingo games are all under the ‘Bingo’ section, with a selection of different types available, such as 90 ball, 75 ball, Daily Jackpot and free bingo. The layout of the lobby is perfectly matched with the desktop version of the site and makes using the mobile site very straightforward.
There is a selection of promotions available to their customers and all of them are in the ‘Offers’ section.
Everything else you could want is under the ‘More’ section, including how to play, licensing information and settings.
When you want to make a deposit, withdraw or set a deposit limit, just look for the separate ‘Banking’ section at the top of the screen.
Once in a bingo room there are three more options at the bottom of the page to enhance your game time while playing. There is ‘Games’, ‘Chat’ and ‘Cards’. These give you the option to take part in the chat room antics, or to play from a massive selection of slots and instant games. Some will open to play within the room and others will take you away from the room, but there is no way of telling which will do what.
If you have chat or a game open you will see the numbers being called and how many numbers you have left to bingo in a panel at the top of the page so you know to click back to the game when you are getting close.
