Mirror Bingo first launched back in 2011, and over the past few years have been through a number of changes, but none of them as drastic as the most recent. On the 16th July 2014 they left the 888 Holdings/Globalcom software and Cashcade network behind in favour of a new home on the Virtue Fusion network, complete with their Playtech platform; a move that surprised both the industry and players alike.
The new Mirror Bingo site will not be to everyone’s taste as its red and white colour scheme is quite plain when compared to the competition, and the only sign to show they are associated with the newspaper is the logo in the top left hand corner. Nevertheless it is well laid out and extremely easy to navigate with just five buttons on their menu. The rest of the homepage is made up of a few banners, details of their latest offers and direct links to the majority of their games, which negates the need to enter the lobby.
As part of the changeover process, all account details were meant to be carried over, but when we tried to log in it would not recognize our password. So we thought we would sign up for a new account and completed the simple two page registration form but were then told there was a problem and we needed to contact support. In the end it took us over an hour with live chat and it turned out that the problem was because we had accounts with Sunday Mail bingo and Daily Record Bingo and these have now all merged under the Mirror Bingo moniker, it looked as though we had duplicate accounts.
If you are new to the brand you will not experience any of these problems, and registering should take no more than a couple of minutes. You will not earn a bonus until you have deposited and wagered your first £10 though, at which point you will receive a small bingo and slots bonus. They offer a number of different ways to fund your account including Paysafe and Ukash, so you can easily monitor how much you are spending. Unfortunately they do not offer any reload bonuses, which is sure to put a few people off.
Head into the Mirror Bingo lobby and will find a huge range of games including 75 ball bingo, 80 ball bingo, 90 ball bingo, slots, instants and casino games. In addition to this you have what they call ‘Headliners’ and here you will find community games, some of which are based on TV game shows such as Who Wants to be a Millionaire and Deal or No Deal. These combine the fun of instant games with the ability to compete against other players for the chance to win bigger cash prizes.
The rooms themselves continue the red and white theme and are of the standard we have come to expect from the software, as it has been tweaked over many years to make sure everything works well. The screen is split down the middle with half dedicated to the chat room and the rest displaying your cards. You can access all of the side games without leaving as they open up in a panel, but the only downside is that this reduces the size of the chat room by half.
If you are looking for big money games then you won’t go far wrong at Mirror Bingo, as their schedule is packed full of guaranteed jackpot games including daily and monthly Bingo Linx games, with some impressive prize pots up for grabs. In addition to this they regularly add weekly and monthly specials with a share of £250,000 being given away over a three day weekend. Sadly this is the limit to their promotions, there are no free bingo rooms, no prize promotions and as mentioned earlier, not even a reload bonus.
Mirror Bingo is not a bad site, they offer a massive range of games combined with the chance to win plenty of big cash jackpots, but they have nothing to make them stand out from all of the others sites on the market. If you are a fan of the Virtue Fusion software then sure you will have a great time, but in our opinion there are bigger and better sites out there, offering the same player experience with more benefits, more freebies, and a wider variety of promotions.

This room is also where you can enjoy bargain bingo, with cards starting at just a penny each, and because it is only accessible by Mirror Bingo players, your odds of winning a game or two are greatly improved.
