At the beginning of March 2015 we were made aware of changes to all the Dragonfish Bingo Bonuses available online.
Notification of the changes are viewed when visiting any of the sites on the Dragonfish network, after all, there is nothing like a massive pop up to make sure bingo players know something has changed right?
However, whilst Dragonfish as a business will have you believe that it is for the greater good, that is a matter of opinion and for this writer.
Our opinion is that these changes are a way of recouping the Point of Consumption tax that 888 Holdings now have to pay.
Reload Bonus Changes at Dragonfish
We have seen many changes around the free bingo offering from Dragonfish Bingo sites, and not so long ago a reduction in reload bonuses offered by bingo sites.
Where once it was a 25% reload on deposits of £10 and 50% on those of £20 or more, it was reduced a few months back to between 10% and 20% dependent on loyalty level.
Now Dragonfish Bingo players don’t get a penny on reloads, just a cashback bonus each month whose value is determined by loyalty level.
Free Bingo Games Change
Free bingo games that were once offered (until September 2011) came in the form of a 1,000 loyalty point bonus (exchanged it had a value of £1 in bonus funds) at the point of registration.
This was dropped in favour of a free bingo room, Free Bingo All, that was open to everyone who registered with any Dragonfish Bingo Site.
The Free Bingo room offered 90 ball games every eight minutes with £1 jackpots and was open from 7 am until 7 pm daily. Other free rooms opened up to players as their loyalty levels improved.
Dragonfish Free Bingo Situation Now
For new players now there is a smidgen of free bingo available,72 hours worth from the point of registration to be exact. The room has been renamed to Quids In but is open from just 9 am until 6 pm. However, whilst the opening hours have reduced, bingo games play in the same way.
Following the 72 hours from registration, access to the Quids In room is only gained if you have made a deposit in the last seven days.
The other free bingo rooms that were once available when your loyalty level increased at Dragonfish sites are now accessible only when you have made a single deposit of a certain value, dependent on which room you wish to enter.
Full details are found at any of the Dragonfish Bingo sites.
The changes certainly aren’t bingo player friendly, but we’re sure they’ll have an impact on the Dragonfish bottom line! Let us know what you think about these changes.
