Who doesn't love a big ole Teddy Bear? The site designers at Cassava Enterprises Limited always seem to tap into something that inspires people to join a particular site. That's called good marketing. At Ted Bingo, the mascot is a distinguished looking bear dressed like James Bond 007, complete with the fancy car and distinguished lifestyle.
As for the website, it does come off looking somewhat sterile and generic, which is really disappointing. What it seems to lack is pizazz. It does come will all the requisite games, bonuses and banking options, which are easy to access. Site owner/operator always does a great job of making sure that prospective customers have immediate access to all the relevant information they will need to decide if they are interested in signing up. Cassava Enterprises is licensed and regulated by both the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner and the U.K. Gambling Commission for the benefit of players in the U.K.
Ted Bingo Games
Let's begin with the bingo options. Upon entering the game lobby, players are greeted with a chance to play one of a number of upcoming game variations. Even though the site uses catchy little game room titles to draw players, it's worth noting that all games are built around either 75-ball (30+ different game patterns), 90-ball, Speed or Swedish bingo. They do offer free bingo games and bingo options that are very affordable. They also offer plenty of chances to play bingo for nice bonuses and progressive jackpots.
When it's time for a little break from the bingo room, players can head over to the casino area. Here, they will find a nice selection of casino games that include hundreds of branded and non-branded video slots, scratch cards/instant win games and a smaller selection of table games such as baccarat, blackjack and roulette. Popular video slot titles include Nightmare on Elm Street, Gonzo's Quest, Jack and the Beanstalk, The Three Stooges, Blood Suckers, The Wizard of Oz and Starburst.
Promo Codes and Welcome Offer
With the right promo codes, players can gain access to a small, but potent selection of bonuses. Upon their initial login, players have immediate access to a matching signup bonus of 700% based on the first deposit of at least £30 with a maximum bonus of £70. These bonus monies can be used anywhere within the site.
Unlike many of Cassava's other bingo sites, this one doesn't offer much in the way of extra bonus codes. However, loyal players are given plenty of chances to earn extra cash. Based on their volume of play, a progress bar continues to move towards the opportunity to spin a bonus wheel for prizes that include up to 5,000 coins for the casino. Once players qualify for the VIP Club, they will gain access to cash rebates, reload bonus options, free bets and special weekly and monthly drawings.
The base software platform is provided by Dragonfish, which is a proprietary platform owned by Cassava's sister company Brigend. Players can access the software in instant play mode without the need to download extra software. While some of the games are proprietary, a majority of them are provided by third-party games developers such as NetEnt and Real Time Gaming, among others. All gaming results are determined by a random number generator that has been tested and certified as fair and honest by the independent testing labs at eCOGRA.
Payment Methods and Withdrawals
The list of available banking options is small, but includes many of the most popular options such as PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, Switch, Solo, Delta, Maestro, paysafecard and bank wire. Withdrawals take up to 48 hours to be processed and require proof of identification documentation.
