Contrary to what you might think, and what I definitely thought, Ted Bingo is not based on the irreverent Seth MacFarlane film from 2012. It was developed into a slot machine, and a pretty good one at that, but it has yet to evolve into an online casino.
So, where does the name come from, you ask? Maybe there’s an interesting story involving a mysterious man named Ted who told the owner something empowering and life-changing. Maybe it’s based on a historical figure who made his money gambling. Maybe it’s an acronym for something cool.
Maybe, but probably not, because Ted Bingo doesn’t actually tell us. Still, the same could be said for countless other generically named online casinos, so I can’t hold it against them.
The site is owned by Broadway Gaming and the services are provided by Broadway Gaming Ireland DF Limited, which means Ted Bingo has countless sister sites, including the recently reviewed Moon Bingo.
Ted Bingo has a bonus wheel for all new members who deposit at least £10. The wheel is similar to the ones offered by Jumpman Gaming casinos like Rocket Bingo. Just deposit, qualify, and spin, It includes prizes such as:
All bonuses are subject to a wagering requirement. This is fixed at 4x for bingo bonuses and 35x for free spin winnings. It’s a decent offer and the maximum payout is very tempting, but most of you will walk away with a modest selection of free spins.
You will need to verify your account before you can claim this bonus, but that should happen automatically. Once you clear the wagering requirements, you’re able to withdraw the funds to the method you used to deposit. The minimum withdrawal amount is just £5.
Other promotions are available at Ted Bingo, and these include loyalty offers. There’s a VIP Club with some big bonus offers; cashback promotions that run on a regular basis; tournaments and giveaways, and regular free spin offers.
If you have a funded account, you can participate in free bingo games. The prizes are modest at best, but that’s to be expected and there is absolutely no risk.
Check the promotions section after signing up to see what’s available.
Bingo Games and More
Ted Bingo has over 500 games. Most of these are slot machines, but it has a good variety of bingo rooms as well. These live games have active chat rooms and include 75-ball and 90-ball variants. You can buy tickets from just 1p, although the best games and biggest prizes cost around 20p to 50p.
Although Ted Bingo has been around for 7 years at the time of writing, it’s far from the biggest bingo site around. Still, the rooms are connected to a vast network that spans hundreds of thousands of community members. The result is a steady succession of games and some big jackpots.
The games include Slingo variants, including Slingo Britain’s Got Talent, Slingo Deal or No Deal, and Slingo Reel Riches. Moving away from the bingo games, there are video slots, progressive jackpot slots, Megaways slots, scratch cards, and more.
If you have played any other site operated by Broadway Gaming, or you were familiar with these sites when they were owned by 888, you’ll know what to expect. They all have a fairly cookie-cutter layout. If not, it’s a solid site with a simple layout, a good selection of games, and complete mobile support.
Deposits, Withdrawals, and Customer Support
Ted Bingo has a minimum deposit of £10 and a minimum withdrawal of £5. It accepts debit cards, PayPal, Paysafecard, and Apple Pay, and all cash outs are free and fast. The customer support team can be reached by email, phone, or live chat. I haven’t had the best experiences emailing these guys, so if you have an issue, I recommend live chat.
One of the issues I have with the support setup is that every email and call goes through to the same company used by countless other sites. In theory, it shouldn’t matter. In practice, it can be confusing and usually adds a couple of extra emails and a few extra hours to a support conversation.
Ted Bingo Review Summary
Ted Bingo has been around for a long time and yet it hasn’t really carved out its own identity. It looks and feels like most of its sister sites, and it annoys me—way more than it should—that the name doesn’t have a meaning, or at least one that’s not made clear.
Still, it’s hard to fault a site that has all of the UK’s most popular games, runs several huge bingo rooms, and has plenty of bonuses. The fact that you can use PayPal and withdraw as little as £5 at a time is just the icing on the cake.

Ted Bingo FAQ
Is Ted Bingo Owned by 888 Holdings?
Ted Bingo, like many of its sister sites, was once part of 888 Holdings, a massive gambling group responsible for some of the biggest betting and gaming brands in the United Kingdom. However, many of the brand’s sites were sold to Broadway Gaming back in 2022, including Ted Bingo.
Can I Use My Old Details to Log In?
If you were a member of Ted Bingo back when it was owned by 888, you should still be able to log in. If you have forgotten your details, just request your password and reset them. Nothing seems to have changed in that regard, and as it’s been nearly a year since the acquisition, it’s unlikely that things will change in the future.
