Mirror Bingo sister sites 2023
When you arrive on the Wonga Games homepage, you might find yourself reminded of chocolate for reasons you can’t quite put your finger on. We can solve that mystery for you. It’s because the background of the casino is the same colour as a Cadbury’s Dairy Milk wrapper, and also perhaps because the Wonga Games logo looks similar to the logo of Wonka chocolate bars, which were a fixture in UK shops about twenty years ago. We suspect that the people who designed Wonga Games would rather you made that association than mentally linking Wonga Games to Wonga, the failed payday lender. The look and style of Wonga Games are quite unlike the look and style of the other Mirror Bingo sister sites, including an enormous arch over the featured games on the homepage, reeling off the names of the most recent winners at the site.
Whatever the visual theme of any casino you visit might be, what the casino is really about is money. You want to win money from the casino, and the casino wants to take money from you. Loot Casino drops the pretence and makes money the theme of the entire site. It’s one of the cleanest-looking Mirror Bingo sister sites, with a gold and white minimalist theme. Most of the gold in the theme comes from stacks of solid gold coins. In keeping with the theme, Loot Casino makes it theoretically possible for every new player at the casino to begin their membership with six thousand pounds in bonus funds. Getting the £6000 involves depositing £200 three times in a row and then being lucky enough to get an x10 boost on your deposit each time, but the possibility exists. If we had to sum Loot Casino up in a word, it would be “unpretentious.”
Aladdin Slots doesn’t have an official licence from Disney. That ought not to be a problem – Disney doesn’t have an absolute copyright on Aladdin because the story comes from The Arabian Nights – but it does mean that the casino can’t use most of the imagery that you’ve probably come to associate with Aladdin from watching the Disney film. You won’t, for example, find a friendly blue genie anywhere on this site. You won’t even find any human characters. The homepage of Aladdin Slots is strangely subdued, with washed-out colours and a distinct lack of visual flair. The casino offers ten no-deposit free spins in Diamond Strike to all new players – a trick that’s usually reserved only for the best of the Mirror Bingo sister sites – but it can’t quite make up for how empty and plain the casino feels.
If we were betting people – which we are – we might put money on Aladdin Slots and Cheeky Casino being designed by the same person or people. Both casinos use near-identical colour schemes. That’s not a great thing, because the colours are pale and look faded. When you call an iGaming site something like “Cheeky Casino,” you invite players to expect a bright, lively, cheerful place to play games. Cheeky Casino doesn’t deliver that. Instead, the style of the site is quite reserved. The style of the homepage (and the other pages on the website, for that matter) is Art Deco, so while it looks elegant, it doesn’t fit our conventional interpretation of “cheeky.” The welcome offer at this casino isn’t anything to write home about, and it doesn’t make a feature out of any games you won’t see featured at plenty of other Mirror Bingo sister sites.
The vibe at Amazon Slots is more like what we expected of Cheeky Casino; it’s bright, it’s colourful, and it’s a little tongue-in-cheek. More importantly than any of that, it’s fun. Are the graphics on the Amazon Slots homepage the best you’re ever likely to see at an online casino? No, they’re not. Is the range of games at Amazon Slots better than you’ll find at the average member of the Mirror Bingo sister sites family? That’s also a “no.” Amazon Slots somehow manages to be more than the sum of its parts and is one of the most popular Jumpman Gaming casinos despite not standing out in any of the individual categories you might assess it on. Perhaps people are just huge fans of the casino’s South American theme – or maybe Amazon Slots benefits from its several years of experience, having been online since 2016.
If you’re American – or even if you’ve ever been to the United States of America – you might associate the word “Target” with a certain chain of stores. We can assure you that Target Slots has nothing to do with the chain in question. If it did, the casino would be a far bigger deal than it is. Other than turning the “o” in “Slots” into a target in the casino’s logo, this iGaming site lacks a theme of any kind. That’s a major disadvantage among the Mirror Bingo sister sites, where casinos are so alike that they often blend into each other, and only those with memorable themes have a hope of capturing your attention. To be fair to Target Slots, it tries to make up for its lack of theme with a big welcome promotion that could pay out up to two thousand pounds in bonus money to players who get the maximum possible return from the casino’s welcome wheel.
Palace Bingo is an example of a specific type of casino within the Mirror Bingo sister sites family – one that doesn’t, in all honestly, make a great deal of sense. On the Jumpman Gaming platform, you’ll see well over thirty iGaming sites that have “bingo” in their names. Of these sites, only around a third of them are actually bingo sites. The rest of them are either former bingo sites that have long since become slots-based casinos or were never bingo sites to begin with. Palace Bingo belongs to the former category. It’s an old site, and it looks it. The two-dimensional, sketchily-drawn castle in the background of the casino’s homepage is, presumably, a palace, and that’s as far as the royal theme at the casino goes. It has a basic welcome promotion and offers the same basic range of slots as all of its siblings.

Mirror Bingo operator – Jumpman Gaming Limited
Mirror Bingo is one of the most high-profile casino, bingo and iGaming sites you’ll find on the Jumpman Gaming Limited casino network. We can’t say it’s the most high-profile because there are some other big names to be found among the Mirror Bingo sister sites. Some of those big names are other major British newspapers. In no particular order, you’ll find the official casino or bingo sites of the Daily Record, the Daily Star and the Daily Express on the Jumpman platform, along with the officially-licensed sites of OK Magazine and “New!” Magazine. All of these publications are white-label customers of Jumpman Gaming, meaning they’ve paid the operator to create a casino site for them. There are dozens of such sites on this network. In fact, of the two-hundred-plus casino sites that Guernsey-based Jumpman Gaming operators, only around twenty are the sole property of Jumpman itself.
The Jumpman Gaming story began in 2010 with the founding of the company and the release of a couple of bingo sites. By the end of 2012, the company had six active bingo sites on the market but wasn’t making great headway with them. It switched things up by focusing on slots instead and began offering white-label services. That changed everything, and Jumpman Gaming has never stopped making casino sites since. In the meantime, it’s also started making casino games. Jumpman Slots was created in 2016 and tasked with making basic casino games at first, but it expanded into making live dealer games in 2019. Nothing stays the same at Jumpman Gaming for long, so we’re expecting the next phase in the operator’s evolution any day now.

Mirror Bingo Sister Sites Welcome Bonuses
Based on what we know about the Mirror Bingo sister sites – especially those that have connections to well-known entertainment properties, as Mirror Bingo goes – we expected this casino to have one of the best welcome promotions that the Jumpman Gaming casino platform can muster. Instead, all it can offer us is a wheel of fortune upon which you might win five hundred bonus spins on the Irish-themed 9 Pots of Gold slot, but you might also win nothing at all. It costs you a minimum £10 deposit to spin the wheel and find out. Players who win nothing may decide never to return to the casino, and even those that land free spins have to contend with an x65 wagering requirement on their winnings. To summarise, it’s not great.
Mirror Bingo keeps players entertained by giving them tasks and challenges to complete. Each time they complete one, they get a Mirror Bingo trophy. For every five Mirror Bingo trophies they’re able to win, they get to spin the Mega Wheel (the one from the welcome promotion) again. The difference this time is that every time another five trophies are collected, the number of spins available on the Mega Wheel increases proportionately. The prizes go up and up until players collect two hundred Mirror Bingo trophies, at which point they get an Amazon voucher from the casino as a loyalty reward.
Top Games at Mirror Bingo
Mirror Bingo is primarily a bingo site. It has hundreds of slots from the best providers available to Jumpman Gaming, but its bingo games are the stars of the show. The bingo room you’ll see listed ahead of all the others is “The Zoom Room,” which focuses on a rapid-fire version of the game played with only thirty balls. If that’s not for you, you might prefer the intermediate Country Road room (seventy-five balls) or the various full 90-ball bingo rooms. There are rooms attached to Mirror Bingo that pay out seven-figure sums, so peruse them carefully if you’re a jackpot chaser. Some of the rooms and games at Mirror Bingo are only available on certain days of the week or at certain times of the day, so check carefully before you make your deposits.
Licensing and Customer Support
All of the Mirror Bingo sister sites (plus Mirror Bingo itself) are covered by UK Gambling Commission licence 39175. The licence is held by Jumpman Gaming Limited, which paid the UKGC £500,000 in May 2022 to make sure it kept hold of it. Jumpman had been accused by the regulator of failing to do enough to prevent problem gambling and avert the risk of money laundering and chose to make the settlement payment rather than facing formal disciplinary proceedings. Customer support requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org – there’s no other way of contacting Mirror Bingo. Players are asked to wait 48 hours for a reply before sending any follow-up requests.
Withdrawal Speed and Support
If you get the Daily Mirror delivered every day, you’ll receive several copies of it between asking Mirror Bingo for a withdrawal and actually getting your money. Like all Jumpman Gaming casinos, Mirror Bingo imposes a 72-hour pending status on all withdrawal requests while it assesses them. If money is eventually released, it could still take another 24, 48 or even 72 hours to clear in player accounts. That remains true regardless of whether you’ve asked for the withdrawal to be paid to your UK debit card or your PayPal, Neteller or Skrill e-wallet.
Final Thoughts on Mirror Bingo
The branding of Mirror Bingo is instantly recognisable, which gives the casino a big-time feel. Unfortunately, the site doesn’t back the feeling up. The welcome promotion at Mirror Bingo is far too weak for a casino of this stature, and we dare say that Daily Mirror readers would expect a better standard of customer service than they’re likely to get from this site, too.
Mirror Bingo Sister Sites Player Reviews
Here are the thoughts of your fellow players about Mirror Bingo. The reviews are all real, but we’ve paraphrased them to keep them brief.
Mirror Bingo will not accept any documents from you to verify your identity, no matter what you send them. That means you can’t withdraw your winnings from the site. It’s a disgrace.Ruth, January 1st 2023. Source Trustpilot.
I never seem to have any luck at Mirror Bingo. I’ve lost £220 with no return in the past two days. Also, I can’t verify my account; all the documents I send to them are rejected. I can’t ask them about this because they don’t have a phone number. Jennifer, December 28th 2022. Source – Trustpilot.
Mirror Bingo is a scam site; avoid it. You can’t make withdrawals of less than £50, and you get charged £2.50 even when you do.Thomas, December 11th 2022. Source – Trustpilot.
I’m having problems with withdrawals. They ask for more ID every time, and they’re extremely slow in replying to my emails. I’ve ended up getting Resolver involved to see if they can help me speed the process up.Philip, December 11th 2022. Source – Trustpilot.
I have a withdrawal of £100 pending from Mirror Bingo. My account has been locked because they’re not happy with the ID documents I’ve sent to them. I can’t get in touch with them to discuss the matter, but I’ve spoken to the Gambling Commission and been told the documents that I’ve sent should be fine. Totally unacceptable customer service.Andrea, December 11th 2022. Source – Trustpilot.
