Loh earned the nickname “The Spearmaster” from his days as a moderator on the popular gambling forum Loh earned fame among the gambling community with his insightful posts and other work on In addition to his moderating work, Loh also promoted a number of popular internet casinos such as his own site and TV personality Tila Tequila’s gambling site.

He also worked for software giant Playtech, and was known as one of the most straightforward people in the online gambling business (which is something you don’t see every day). Unfortunately, Ted Loh lost his battle with cancer today and passed away leaving behind his wife and three children.

Loh’s death marked the fourth death of a prominent internet gaming figure in recent years. His former boss at, Kenneth Weitnzer, committed suicide while both Alan Leonard and Lou Fabiano recently died too.
