DragonBET Review

Rating: 4.7/5

Rating: 4.7/5

Dragonbet is a rather wonderful independent sportsbook and casino site that’s aimed at a Welsh audience but welcomes players from other parts of the UK.


About DragonBet

DragonBet bills itself as “The Bookmaker Of Wales” and the theming neatly incorporates a depiction of a Welsh dragon similar to the one on the Welsh flag.  Founded by racecourse bookmaker James Lovell in 2022, the site is available in the Welsh language as well as in English and has a special Welsh Events area in the sportsbook plus an attached blog that largely focuses on Welsh League football and an app with live streaming; they are plainly really serious about supporting and promoting Welsh sport and it’s really great to see.

Having said that, there’s plenty of markets (advance and in play) available on sporting fixtures elsewhere in the UK and internationally so any sports fan should be very happy with what’s on offer.  And of course, the same goes for the casino – it’s packed with games that are popular everywhere.

DragonBet is on the Playbook platform which powers just a handful of UK facing sites and represents a refreshing change from the big bookies and large skin networks.

Getting Started At DragonBet

As at other Playbook sites, the first thing you do in order to register an account is pick a password to go with your email address.  On the next screen you give them your address and phone number and opt into whichever marketing channels you prefer.  At this point you’ll be given the opportunity to set deposit limits and a reality check, and only after that will you see the deposit screen.  Don’t forget to enter the code for the casino offer (which you’ll see when you follow our link).

Do be aware, before embarking on the registration process, that there is only one payment method accepted at DragonBet – debit card.

Games At DragonBet

Most of the slot games at DragonBet are from three extremely well known providers – Netent, Pragmatic Play and Blueprint – but there are some others as well including the recently added studio Leap. There aren’t any progressive jackpots, though.  In the case of games with variable RTP(e.g. Starburst where the range is 92.05% to 96.09%), Playbook are known to set them towards the top end of the range; they don’t display RTP on the game tiles so you will need to verify that this is still the case by checking the game help files before starting to play.

The Return To Player of slot games can change and may not be the same at all casinos. Please check the in-game documentation before playing for the correct RTP figure.

Many of the Pragmatic Play slots appear in the Playbook exclusive Slots Club promotion (which allows frequent players to claim weekly free spins) as well as in Pragmatic Play’s own long running Drops & Wins promotion.

The live casino games at DragonBet are all by Pragmatic Play.  There’s roulette, blackjack, baccarat, various speed versions of games and a small selection of gameshows including Boom City and Sweet Bonanza Candyland.

There’s also a couple of crash games in the form of Spaceman and Big Bass Crash (both of which are also courtesy of Pragmatic Play).

Other Things To Consider

We’ve already covered two big plus points – the existence of Apple and Android apps with live streaming of sports and the better than average return to player on some well known slot games – and one big minus point – the absence of any alternative payment methods, so if you don’t want to deposit with a debit card DragonBet is not the site for you.

The lack of wagering requirements will be another big plus point for many players, but the flipside of that is that there aren’t many promotions and they are not particularly generous.  In fact, there is no promotions page as such and all of the promotions appear as tiles in the lobby, interspersed with announcements about new games.

Then of course, there’s the sportsbook.  If you like the occasional or regular flutter on sports or on TV specials such as Eurovision or the Oscars, it’s great to have it all under the same roof with the same wallet.

Final Thoughts

With its proudly Welsh identity and its player friendly slot game RTP and lack of wagering requirements, DragonBet really is refreshingly different. We expect it to be very popular with our users.
