If you have a large following and a bankable brand in the United Kingdom, it seems that you’re a prime target to have your own online casino or bingo site. Over the years, I have reviewed sites based on everything from popular online communities to memes. It’s a never-ending supply of novelty sites and while many of them are soon rebranded or ultimately fall by the wayside, some of them stick around for many years.
Such is the case with sites owned by tabloid newspapers. In the past, I’ve reviewed Sun Bingo and Star Wins, both branded with newspaper logos and both advertised to their respective audiences. Today it is the turn of Mirror Bingo, which launched in 2008 as part of the Daily Mirror brand.
Mirror Bingo is operated by Jumpman Gaming and uses the familiar software, promotions, and layout that many UK bingo fans are familiar with. It is licensed by the UK Gambling Commission and the Alderney Gambling Control Commission and is available on most devices and platforms.
As a new Mirror Bingo player, you are entitled to two different Welcome Offers, one before you deposit and one after.
The no deposit bonus awards you with 20 Free Spins on the NetEnt slot Starburst simply for signing up and adding a valid debit card. As it’s a UK-licensed casino, you will also need to verify your ID to make it this far, although this process should happen automatically if you enter your details correctly and are on the electoral roll.
The maximum win for these spins is fixed at £8 for every batch of 10, equating to a total of £16.
Once you have used your Free Spins and made a deposit of at least £10, you can collect your second bonus with a spin of the Mega Wheel.
The Mega Wheel is a classic Jumpman Gaming prize wheel that contains a host of Bonus Spin prizes and Amazon Vouchers. The grand prize is a batch of 500 Spins to use on the Fluffy Favourites slot.
I’ve spoken before about how I find Fluffy Favourites to be a sickly assault on the senses and how I’m not much of a Starburst fan, either, but you can also unlock spins on Rainbow Riches, which I love, and Gonzo’s Quest, for which I have a love-hate relationship. In other words, there is a varied mix of prizes here and there’s bound to be a prize or two that will stand out to you.
If you don’t land the reward that you’re hoping for the first time around, don’t worry, as you’ll get another spin of the Mega Wheel with every successive deposit of £20 or more. You can also complete challenges to ‘earn’ extra spins using the brands trophy based system which is designed to enhance loyalty at Jumpman bingo sites.
There isn’t much to say about Mirror Bingo promotions that I haven’t already said many times before, including on sites like Casper Games. After all, it’s a Jumpman Gaming site, which means you’ll be presented with a host of regular reload offers and loyalty promotions, including the aforementioned challenges, a birthday bonus, monthly spins, and Live Casino promotions.
Slots and Bingo Room
The Mirror Bingo games room features a cherry-picked selection of top slots from creators like NetEnt, Pragmatic Play, and Microgaming, including the John Hunter series, Starburst, Immortal Romance, and Gonzo’s Quest.
You won’t find any exclusives like on Paddy Power and you probably won’t see anything that you haven’t already seen on hundreds of other sites, but if you’re looking for the big hitters and the fan favourites, you will definitely find plenty of those.
As for the bingo games, these are spread across several rooms, from the beginner rooms where the prizes are small but plentiful to Bingo Millions, where there are prizes of £1 million on offer.
Depositing and Withdrawing
Mirror Bingo accepts payments through debit cards (Visa, Mastercard, Maestro) and web wallets (PayPal and Paysafecard). You can also use Pay By Mobile, but should note that this method is only useful for deposits, not withdrawals.
There is a £2.50 fee for all withdrawals and they are processed within a couple of days. This withdrawal fee is a kick in the teeth for small stake casual players but likely won’t have much of an impact on high rollers.
Mirror Bingo Review Summary
Tabloids have always had a close relationship with the online gambling industry. A couple of decades ago, you couldn’t open a newspaper without a few “scratchcards” falling out, and these days, most tabloids have their very own online casino. The difference is that these casinos are actually legitimate and fair, unlike the aforementioned scratchcards, which promised luxury holidays and huge cash prizes and left you with a headache and a substantial phone bill.
Whether you’re a Daily Mirror reader or not, there is a lot to like here. The layout is very simple and the aesthetic is plain, but it’s a Jumpman Gaming site, so you know you’re always getting a quality site that won’t disappoint.
I wouldn’t put it on the same level as the likes of Wink Bingo and Foxy Bingo, two top-drawer bingo sites that I scored very highly, but it’s still a solid effort from a respectable brand and an established operator, and it’s worthy of your time and money.
