Why are there Newspaper Bingo Sites?
Why newspaper bingo sites? Millions of loyal red top readers play the game, so it's only natural that newspaper owners should capitalise on these lifelong allegiances.
Tabloid newspapers have been involved with bingo from the time Andy Capp was a nipper, and it's easy to see why – it's cheap entertainment with the emphasis on fun.
Which Newspaper Bingo Sites are the best?
Up until recently, Daily Mail, and Daily Express had their own bingo sites, but they fell by the wayside leaving three main newspaper bingo sites: Mirror, Sun, and Fabulous. All offer an excellent place to play, especially if you like it flashy, cashy, and occasionally trashy.

A few of the most popular newspaper bingo sites:
The Sun newspaper is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation, and has the ninth largest circulation of any paper in the world. Around 2.4 million copies are sold in the UK every day, so you can just imagine how busy the site is.
New players are welcomed with a 200% deposit bonus – deposit £10, to get £30 free play.
The site offers 90 ball, 80 ball, and 75, along with newspaper-themed games like Winning Headlines, and Mystic Meg.
As to be expected, the site has a red-and-white tabloid theme, but it's a far cry from its occasionally tacky parent newspaper. SunBingo operates on the Gamesys software, along with top brands like JackpotJoy, so you're guaranteed a powerful, sleek, smooth gaming experience second to none.
One of the most popular features at Sun is Mystic Meg's Wheel of Destiny. You get to spin it free every day, and if you get lucky, you'll get free spins to play on the Mystic Meg slots.
And a word of advice, if you ever hear the SunBingo TV advert, it will be stuck in your head for the rest of your life. It's a good job it's a well-made-and catchy song...
The Mirror newspaper has a circulation of 1.05 million, which is about a third less than the Sun,so the site is somewhat less rowdy than its bigger rival. Look inside MirrorBingo to find 90 ball and 75 ball, guaranteed jackpots, chat games and tournaments, and instant win games. MirrorBingo is marketed by Cashcade Ltd, who also look after FoxyBingo and Get Minted Casino.
As a new player, you get a 200% welcome bonus up to the value of £150. You also get 50% extra every time you reload, up to £50.
The newly-revamped jackpot schedule sees games like the Saturday's Tick Tock. Games come along every six minutes with prize pools of up to £300.
Liven up Wednesdays with the Mid week Merrymaker in the VIP room – with £250 games on the hour, you'll be smiling for the rest of the evening if you cover your card.
Play every Tuesday to meet Andy Capp, comic strip star and self-confessed wifebeater. He has a £1000 cash game, with tickets 25p.
Join the other Mirror players every evening at 9 PM for enormous cash jackpots – the headline on the schedule is definitely the £5000 guaranteed game every Saturday.
Fabulous Bingo is the glamorous gossip supplement that you will find in the Sun newspaper, so strictly speaking, it's not really one of the newspaper bingo sites. It's touted as the Fashion Capital of Bingo, and sometimes they give away free prizes like a lipstick or lipliner upon registration.
As a newbie, you will get a 200% welcome bonus, and also a 50% reload on your second deposit. Prizes are usually fashion-based – at time of press, you could win an ultimate stylist experience, which included a personal shopper and luxury stylist.
