Established right at the time that the online bingo boom started in the mid 00’s, Dragonfish delight players with themed sites and their easy and recognisable style was easy to keep coming back to.
They have spent the time since creating high quality sites that have a distinctive quality. These are sites which are characterised by bold, colourful graphics and a youthful feeling overall. There are currently around 100 bingo sites on the Dragonfish network, and new sites are released on a regular basis.
Each provider gives its bingo sites the traditional 90 ball and 75 ball bingo games, but then they also provide them with an additional game to keep the site fresh and interesting. At most Dragonfish sites this game will most likely be High 5 Bingo. This is another name for the Swedish variation of 75 ball bingo. Unlike the traditional 75 ball bingo with only one winner, High 5 bingo produces five.
The game is played on a 5x5 grid with the numbers 1 to 75, and players win with 1 line, 2 lines, 3 lines, 4 lines and a full house. High 5 bingo doesn’t have a centre “free” square, which more traditional games of 75 ball bingo do. Therefore you don’t require any specific pattern in order to win.
Despite the ability to customise the skin of each individual site, the fact remains that there’s little to distinguish sites in terms of gameplay. Players of Dragonfish network sites are playing against members of over 100 other websites. This therefore can lead to discrepancies like players who signed up with a 50% deposit bonus playing against members of sites that offer 100% deposit bonuses.
This is often the essential problem with heavily networked sites; you’re playing the same games against the same people. However the benefits of more players is that the bingo rooms are busier, and therefore and the jackpots are likely to be larger.
There are however some sites which are entirely unique and standalone from the rest of the network; Foxy Bingo, for example. This site is licensed and regulated through Cassava Enterprises, which is another subsidiary of 888 Holdings.
Some lovely examples of attractive standalone sites are Sing Bingo and Fancy Bingo. They have a really slick and polished look to them, and retaining some sense of individuality at the same time. Of course it costs much more (around 5 times more) to create a completely unique site, as opposed to a site with a generic skin and a few modifications in terms of games and promotions.
Dragonfish always does well with promotions that offer highly generous prizes, such as holidays. This is largely because it is such a well-established company with the ability to do so.
