Who are Dragonfish?

Dragonfish was the name of the B2B (business to business) division of 888 and appeared on white label bingo, slot and casino sites on the 888 platform.  In December 2021, it was announced that the entire division, as well as all of 888’s B2C (business to consumer) sites on the Dragonfish platform, would be sold to Broadway Gaming.  We can therefore expect some major changes to take place, but the changes that have been introduced so far have been mainly on the bingo side.  The line-up of slot games has changed considerably – it’s goodbye to IGT slots and to Millionaire Genie and other 888 exclusives and hello to many more Microgaming slots – and there are probably more changes to come in 2024.

On 9th June 2022, the licence holder for all Dragonfish sites changed from 888 UK Limited to Grand Battery Holdings Limited and the ownership change completed at the beginning of July. The immediate effect of this was more transparency about who actually owns Dragonfish sites – as you can see on this About Us page from Winzino, the Brand Owner is shown as well as the licensee.  The licence holder has now changed again to Broadway Gaming Ireland DF Limited but the licence number remains the same.

Aren’t they just about bingo?

The name Dragonfish is indeed usually associated with a type of bingo software that runs on a large number of white label bingo sites and standalone bingo networks as well as on B2C (business to consumer) bingo sites such as Wink Bingo, but in fact they do a lot more than just bingo – they supply a complete iGaming solution to operators including everything that goes on behind the scenes (e.g. licensing, payments, account verification).  The casino solution they offer was originally called Dragonfish Casinoflex but everyone calls it just Dragonfish.

Are Dragonfish casinos just skins?

Although all Dragonfish casinos have much the same games (not exactly the same as some have more progressive jackpots than others), their welcome offers can vary wildly in the maximum amount of bonus that can be claimed and operators also have a considerable amount of freedom over player promotions, whether these be redeposit offers, raffles/prize draws or bonus games.

What else do I need to know?

Until November 2023 perhaps the most unappealing thing about Dragonfish casinos was the cap on winnings when playing with a bonus – the max convertible from bonus play used to be £400 plus the original bonus but at almost all sites it is now just £100 plus the original bonus (apart from when the player is lucky enough to win a progressive jackpot).  It’s still much better than at some other casino networks, though.

That cap is still in place, but has been superseded as the most unappealing thing about Dragonfish casinos by the new bonus expiry rules.  Dragonfish bonuses are valid indefinitely, but disappear if you don’t log in to your account often enough.  That used to be once every 90 days, but has been drastically cut to just 5 days.

Anoher change that Dragonfish made in 2023 was in May when they lowered the RTP on 75 games (including Starburst and many other very popular titles) . They did at least email all of their existing players to let them know about this change.

Dragonfish casinos frequently have free spins offers, often with no deposit required, but they are almost always the type of free spins offer that in our opinion ought to be described as a bonus spins offer – any winnings are paid as a slots bonus with a fairly heavy wagering requirement.  Many Dragonfish casinos only offer bonus spins on Pariplay slots such as Enchanted Forest and Fish & Chips and in this case and in the case of Eyecon slots, the winnings are shown in points, are only converted into a bonus at the end and are subject to a cap – so what you end up with may not bear much resemblance to how you saw the spins play out.

A few Dragonfish casinos were No Wagering casinos and these offered free spins with the winnings paid in cash, but this is now a thing of the past.  Not only do we expect to see no new Dragonfish casinos on the No Wagering platform in 2024, all of the existing ones have long since closed or reverted to a more conventional welcome offer with a wagering requirement.  Some Dragonfish bingo sites are still No Wagering.

On the plus side, the standard Dragonfish terms and conditions do not include any restrictions regarding which games can be played with bonus and the game weighting is usually pretty straightforward with slots at 100% and table games (if there are any, which there usually aren’t) at 5% or not at all.  Nor is there any list of excluded games to fall foul of; although there are indeed some games that are excluded from bonus play (marked real money only in the lobby) you won’t suffer any sanctions if you try to play them, you’ll just find that you get a message about insufficient funds. Better still, bonus can be used to play many progressive jackpot slots (although usually without contributing to the jackpot) and progressive jackpot wins are not subject to the usual max convertible.

Dragonfish do have one other restriction which you may not be aware of and that is that they now limit players to 20 accounts across all Dragonfish brands.

Bonusing rules aside, the only other problem with Dragonfish casinos is that they don’t seem to be particularly quick at adding new games so you may have to wait a while for the new release you want to try out to show up.

The purchase of Dragonfish (and the rest of 888’s bingo business) by Broadway Gaming has put a halt on new Dragonfish sites of all kinds and it has been quite a while since any new Dragonfish slot sites launched.  The redesign and relaunch of little known Dragonfish sites such as Cherry Wins and Fantastic Spins has gone some way towards filling that gap.

In Spring 2023, a number of Dragonfish sites lowered their slots wagering requirement from an eye-watering 85% to a much more attractive 35%, making them a much more attractive proposition for players, and this change was subsequently rolled out to all Dragonfish sites.
