A Complete ‘All you need to know’ review of Mirror Bingo
Having been in the newspaper industry for in excess of one hundred years, there’s no doubting that the Mirror is a massive corporation. However the real question is whether they know what they’re doing when it comes to Bingo, and here we explain why they most certainly do.
The Mirror Bingo Website: A Quick Overview
Arriving on the Mirror website is a pleasure. With a clean, uncluttered design and a simple colour scheme that features mostly in white and a bit of red this design presents a simple layout and easy to navigate screen.
On the homepage you’ll be able to see some of the latest offers, when the next bingo games are starting and what’s hot in the slot game world right now.
All in all this is a pleasant start to a bingo experience!
The bingo games: What to expect
The Mirror Bingo website offers up plenty of different bingo experience. Navigating to the Bingo Rooms page will see you with a choice of four options: 90 Ball Bingo (which is the most popular form of bingo in the UK); 75 Ball Bingo (which is favoured more in the States and requires that your bingo card matches a pattern); 80 Ball bingo and Special Bingo Games.
In the specials collection there are plenty of fresh and innovative twists on the traditional game of bingo. You’ll be able to play Deal or No Deal 90 Ball Bingo, Deal or No Deal 75 Ball Bingo, Joker Jackpot Bingo, Who Wants to be a Millionaire Bingo and Pennies from Heaven.
These are all entertaining in their own right, however the Joker Jackpot Bingo game seems to be the most unique and takes a form that we’ve not come across previously. This game will then see you playing a mix of Bingo and Cards! Perfect for the player who can’t decide whether they’re in the mood for the casino or the bingo hall.
Alternative gaming on Mirror Bingo
If the bingo games offer a good range then the slots go even further. Here you’re presented with tens of slots that are each as unique as the last. You can try your luck on the Virtual Dog track, or take a spin of some of the biggest titel slots out at the moment, including: Adventures in Wonderland, Fluffy Favourites, Clover Rollover and Leprechaun’s Luck.
With new games being added all of the time it’s hard to imagine even the most demanding of slot players being disappointed here.
The Sign Up Bonus
Mirror Bingo feature a rather tempting 300% deposit bonus when you place your first deposit. This means that depositing just £10 will see you with £40 to play with.
The Cash Climber Promotion, whilst only on for a limited time, offers escalating jackpots on each Monday.
Bingo Linx games offer up £2000, £000 and £5000 games throughout the week. These games run everyday at 12pm, 6pm and 10:30pm and tickets are just 50p!
Played on the first Saturday of every month, Linx Hour will see you in with a chance of winning a £10,000 jackpot!
The Money Ladder promotion is so called because each hour after 6pm the prize climbs upwards from £600 by £100. This results in a climax of a £1,000 jackpot game played at 10pm. Tickets for this exciting game are just 10p.
£20,000 Friday Feeling
Games that take place on many Bingo websites on Friday and Saturday generally tend to provide some of the highest jackpots around. The Mirror website is no different and for one lucky player each Friday there’s a £20,000 jackpot waiting.
Unusually this bingo website additionally offers another Friday night game that holds an even higher jackpot than the £20,000 Friday Feeling promotion. This offer will then see a player winning £50,000 on Friday evening.
Every bingo website tends to offer 1p games, however these invariably tend to only offer jackpots that stay in the tens (or possibly the hundreds if the website is a little bit geneous). However, Mirror Bingo go way further than anyone else by offering a massive £30,000 jackpot on their games that start from 1p.
The Big Weekender
Complimenting Mirror Bingo’s Friday night promotions is a chance to win a staggering £250,000 prize on the last weekend of every month.
The Loyalty Club Scheme
Mirror Bingo like to reward their most loyal players in the form of a tiered Loyalty Club. All Bingo websites hold some form of reward scheme, however we particularly liked this element of Mirror Bingo as it is completely straightforward and, what’s more, rather rewarding! Here’s a rundown of the levels that you’ll be working through:
Level 1: The A-List
This starting level will see you earning points as you play. These points can then be redeemed for cash or bonuses. Reaching celebrity status sees you then receiving 20% more points on bingo. You need 3,000 points to reach celebrity status.
Level 2: Celebrity
Celebrity status awards you 20% more points on bingo. You need 10,000 to be on your way up to the next level.
Level 3: Headliner
Reach Headliner status and earn 16.5% more points on bingo. You need 20,000 to be on your way to superstardom.
Level 4: Superstar
Superstars get 14% more points on bingo and 100% more on slots. You need 50,000 to become an icon!
Level 5: Icon
Icon status gets you 25% more points on bingo!
VIP (By Invitation Only): VIPS get 10% more on bingo and 50% more on slots.
Deposits, payments and support
Surprisingly the Mirror Bingo website offers fewer than the usual options for placing deposits or withdrawing your winnings. However, there are still more than enough to meet most people’s preferred methods. The cards that they support include: Visa, Mastercard, Maestro and Visa Electron. The payment systems that they support include: Ukash and Paysafecard. It’s additionally unusual for a bingo website not to support Paypal.
If you need help during your time on the Mirror Bingo website head on over to the Help page. Here you can access ‘Getting Started’ guides, Bingo Lingo cards, FAQ pages and a Deposit Guide page.
You’re also able to contact the Mirror Bingo team by way of email or live chat (the latter of which is always available through a button in the top right hand corner).
Mirror Bingo on the Go
Mirror Bingo don’t offer dedicated apps for either Apple devices or Android. However, navigating to the website from your smartphone will see you entering the mobile version of their website where you can play all of the desktop games.
Visiting the Community tab will see you being able to meet the many chat moderators that oversee the bingo games. As well as this you can browse through the range of chat games that are running, of which there are many!
The chat games follow the same form of the bingo games in that there are various themes. Here you can enter the following chat games: Alphabet Chatter,Anagrams, Bingo Buddies, Blast from the Past, Guess Who?, I-Spy, Karaoke Queen, movie Madness, Quote Me Silly, Rhyme Time, Survey, Teasers and Trivia. This extensive range of games is easily the largest that we’ve seen as far as chat games go, so if you love a bit of engagement to your gaming then this is the place to be.
To give you an idea of how just one of these games work we’ll take a look at the Karaoke Queen game. Here the Chat Host will give you one lyric from a well known song and your task is to type it in fastest in order to win a bingo bonus.
Mirror Bingo on Social Media
We were disappointed to see that the only Twitter and Facebook accounts for the website were the main social media accounts for the Celebrity section of their newspaper. However we have hopes that as Mirror Bingo continues to grow that they’ll open their own dedicated social media accounts through which players can stay up to date.
Our Finishing Thoughts
Mirror Bingo have gone all out to provide some of the hottest jackpots and promotions around. Not only are their weekends packed full of super high prizes, but the additional offers that run continuously see players never short of being able to take up an offer or two.
There’s something about the Mirror Bingo website that makes it feel completely straightforward and clear cut. We’re not sure whether this is down to the fresh, uncluttered design, layout and navigation, or because of their super simple, yet rewarding, VIP scheme. In any instance this approach most certainly works and when this is coupled with super flexible gaming with plenty of options and promotions we feel that this is a bingo site worth registering with.
