Dragonfish is part of the vast online gambling conglomerate 888 Holdings Ltd; the Gibraltar based company that also owns Cassava Enterprises. They provide the most popular software in online bingo. However, before going any further, I should perhaps define what I mean by “popular”. The more precise phrase would perhaps be “most widespread”. There are now around 100 different bingo sites available to UK players which use this company’s software. This is not just because it provides smooth flowing, easy to navigate sites that many players love (which it does), but more because of the service provided to site owners.
Dragonfish provide an all in one package to the prospective bingo operator, taking care of all the functions necessary to run a successful site: in addition to the well-designed software, they look after legal compliance, licensing arrangements, administration, payment technology and account services (through their associated company Cassava), marketing and even customer support. This comprehensive service makes them an obvious choice for any company wanting to start their own online bingo site. Of course, all this comes with a hefty price tag attached, but many consider this a price well worth paying because of the worry free, all inclusive convenience. If site owners do want something a bit “different” from the typical Dragonfish template, they can pay extra for a fully customised site.
From the player’s point of view, their sites provide well designed, smooth playing games with very few glitches. Some regular gamers find their sites a bit “samey” and yearn for a little more variety and innovation, but there are, after all, plenty of alternative software providers for these novelty seekers. Most bingo players seem well satisfied with the games Dragonfish provide, there being sufficient unique features on the different sites to prevent boredom from setting in.
There are certainly plenty of different options for players on these sites, with all the typical versions of bingo available, together with a vast array of alternative instant games, slots, scratch cards and casino games.
As with almost all online bingo sites these days, there is no need to download any additional software – bingo can be played through any standard internet browser. Mobile and tablet versions are also generally available.
The company also run their own network of bingo sites, which feature similar promotions and special games across all sites (which has the advantage of increasing player numbers and therefore jackpot sizes). Perhaps their most famous network promotion is the chance to win their much advertised but elusive £1 million jackpot. However, being a member of their network is not compulsory: many dragonfish powered sites are “stand alone” or belong to other networks.
Overall, Dragonfish software provides user friendly and entertaining sites, attractive to inexperienced and (most) regular gamers alike. Their vast army of satisfied players and the backing of one of the biggest names in the online gambling business mean that they are a name you can trust.
