Dragonfish is an online gaming software operation which is wholly owned by the industry giants 888 Holdings. This division of the 888 conglomerate of companies is responsible for the design of the “white label” software frameworks used by online gaming operators to run their sites.
The division made its name and industry reputation in the world of online bingo. It remains the one of the biggest names in this field, with around 150 different bingo brands in operation using its software. All its licenced sites offer the same 90 and 75 ball formats of the game, usually with some form of “speed” bingo also included. These can include its “High 5” Swedish bingo format, or its unique 52 “ball” game, which uses playing cards rather than bingo balls to run the game.
Dragonfish bingo sites always carry a comprehensive range of slot games too. In addition to its own creations, a long standing licencing arrangement has been made with the gaming software giants Microgaming, enabling Dragonfish sites to offer some of today’s top slot titles to its players.
Recent years have seen the Dragonfish division diversify into the online casino industry. Its new offerings have been well received and provide good competition with its already established rivals. Its parent company already has over two decades’ experience in the industry, with its iconic 888 Casino having been at the forefront of the online casino market ever since its launch. It remains one of the biggest names in the business.
It was therefore a natural move for the 888 Holdings parent company to unleash the “white label” capabilities of its Dragonfish division into the world of the online casino. It was a natural fit: Dragonfish had already established a reliable, popular service in online bingo, with well over a hundred different sites in operation at the time. A multitude of operators and millions of players were already familiar with the Dragonfish service. Using this experience and expertise, and matching it with the knowledge of its parent’s 888 Casino operation was a masterstroke, and the new casino operations have gone from strength to strength.
Players on Dragonfish casinos can expect the same flawless and reliable service which its bingo customers have come to expect. Further licencing deals have been agreed with other gaming software giants such as NetEnt, to ensure that the range of games on offer is well up to the industry standard. All Dragonfish casinos can be played on any kind of device, and are all optimised for small screen play using the latest HTML5 technology.
Dragonfish powered casinos always offer a comprehensive range of payment options. These include Visa and MasterCard; Neteller and Entropay, plus Paysafecard. Many also offer other popular options, including PayPal and Apple Pay.
Wagering requirements can vary from site to site according to the specific operator’s policy. A typical requirement is 35 x your deposit + bonus before cashing out, but this is not a universal requirement. What always does seem to be present is the company’s unique “Transaction Balance” policy, which can be more than a little confusing. If there is an equivalent elsewhere, it is probably closest to some rival sites’ “Fair Gaming” policies.
Dragonfish casinos are always licenced via the UK overseas territory of Gibraltar. This means that they are also fully regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, so they can be considered safe to play for players based within the United Kingdom.
