Mirror Bingo Review
Updated On Monday 1st September 2014
New Player Offer: 300% Bonus
Virtue Fusion wagering terms and conditions will apply
When we first wrote our review on Mirror Bingo they were a standalone site under the Cashcade umbrella. In 2013 they became part of a network of sites before making a change in 2014 to join the Virtue Fusion Network. In our first review we posed said that "bingo was an important weapon during the newspaper circulation battles in the 80s, so are Mirror Bingo doing enough to take on The Sun Bingo and the rest of the online bingo operators?". That question still stands!
New players to Mirror Bingo currently get a 300% matched with a minimum deposit of £10. A deposit of just a tenner will give you £40 to play. Note that like all Virtue Fusion sites bingo bonus cash comes with a x4 wagering requirement. If you previously played at the site when it was with Cashcade then your login details should still work. As a gesture of a goodwill you can still the first deposit bonus when you go on and fund your account.
The move from the Cashcade/Cassava platform to Virtue Fusion has given Mirror Bingo players a wider array of games, jackpots and slots. The bingo rooms include Joker Jackpot, Clover Countdown, Thrifty 90, Red Carpet, Pennies From Heaven and Multi Balls. There are also the TV themed rooms of Deal Or No Deal and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. As far as we're aware none of these rooms are exclusive to Mirror Bingo. The site does offer 75, 80 and 90 ball games and all budgets are catered for!
In the slots department there's the usual Big Top Tombola, Clover Rollover, Adventures In Wonderland and even Fluffy Favourites. In fairness most bingo sites, no matter what platform they use, seem to have very similar options when it comes to games. That's a shame (although not Mirror Bingo's fault) as it takes away from the uniqueness of the individual brands.
One of the big issues we had with Mirror Bingo when it used the Cashcade platform was that it only had the sporadic good offer to keep player interest. This came in the form of an Andy Capp scratchcard, free bingo weeks or the occasional tournament. With a change of platform there's even less to write about in terms of exclusives. And that's a disappointment. Players do however get the usual network offers of Bingo Linx Jackpots, big money winners weekends and bargain bingo nights. Hopefully they'll be more to come in this department as the site finds it feet.
As well as changing platform, Mirror Bingo have seemingly canned their social media presence too. This is a bit of a surprise although perhaps it's unneeded given that the brand has multiple Facebook accounts including one for celebs (which is linked from the bingo site).
Overall we're pleased that there has been a change of platform for Mirror Bingo. It should be a decent brand and should give it's arch-rival, The Sun Bingo, a run for it's money. As a Virtue Fusion Network site we think it should fulfill it's potential but it will need to look at providing exclusive rooms and promotions to it's players.
