GlobalCom / Dragonfish are the giants of the online bingo industry. To explain or even begin to understand the complex corporate web that is this mega multi-national corporation would probably need some hot shot financial accountant. And they’d probably struggle. What chance have us mere bingo reviewers got? What we can do though, is tell you what we think you need to know. After all – you’re playing bingo, not buying shares, right?
The whole company is owned by a holding company called 888 Holdings. Dragonfish is the bit responsible for designing the sites. GlobalCom is probably best seen as the bit that does the marketing and promotion – like getting more operators to licence their designs for example. Cassava handle all the nuts and bolts banking and finance. This is the name that will appear on your bank or credit card statements if you make a deposit or receive your winnings. You will probably see a combination of many of these names when you visit a Dragonfish designed site.
What else do you need to know? All Dragonfish sites are licenced and registered on the UK overseas territory of Gibraltar. This means that they are all covered by the UK Gambling Commission, so they are considered safe to play for United Kingdom based players.
The GlobalCom / Dragonfish network itself contains around sixty sites, but Dragonfish design sites for other operators and networks too, so the grand total of Dragonfish designed sites is probably well over one hundred. All feature 90 ball and 75 ball (American) bingo, with some operating their version of “speed” bingo, called High 5. All their sites are exceptionally smooth running and easy to find your way around. Some people find that they are a bit samey, with little to distinguish between them. Whilst this can be true in some cases, others do show some real design inspiration. So look out for our site reviews, where we at Busy Bee will make sure to differentiate between the ones that are worth your time and money, and those that are frankly, a waste of space.
Because the GlobalCom / Dragonfish network is so extensive, you can be sure that the prizes and jackpots are very competitive and well worth winning. But always remember that the prizes and jackpots are large because more people are playing! Which means that it may well be harder to win! There are always plenty of ways to pay at Dragonfish sites. All the usual typically used credit and debit cards are accepted, together with a wide range of e-payment methods, including PayPal. You can even pay over the phone of you prefer.
So, all in all, GlobalCom is just another name in the 888 Holdings empire, and is best seen as another part of the Dragonfish stable of sites. All you need to know is that they’re a big name – the biggest in the business. They run entertaining and reliable sites, and are regulated by the UK Gambling Commission. Just keep an eye on Busy Bees’ site reviews to find out the best ones to try.
