Bonus Changes Coming To Dragonfish Brands

Posted by: BingoGal - Monday, Sep. 21st 2015 10:26 AM

In two days time there is set to be a bit of a shake-up of the bonus structure at the sites like Loquax Bingo powered by Dragonfish and if we are honest, it all seems a bit “flaky”. We have known that the changes were coming into play on 24th August 2015 but had a few points that we needed clarification on from the powers that be at 888 so we took the time to email. The response cleared up a few points, but the answers seemed to avoid answering one question directly.

The changes that are coming into force on Thursday mean that when you spend bonus money playing games at brands like Loquax Bingo, winnings derived from bonus play do not get added to your cash balance until you have met wagering requirements. Obviously this moves the goal posts on withdrawals.

Prior to the changes, if you got lucky with your bonus money you were still able to withdraw it even without meeting the wagering requirements; you simply forfeited any bonus funds remaining in your account at the time of withdrawal.

Over the last few months, we have seen a change in the way sites on the Dragonfish network reward their players. For example, a cash match bonus is now often split as 50% bingo and 50% games bonus. There is no option to decline these bonuses that means that you are instantly subject to meeting the wagering requirements.

Opting Out Of Dragonfish Bonuses

This is where we felt the avoidance issue arose. Below is the question asked and the response received:

Is there going to be an option for a player to opt out of receiving a bonus? – Depending on the bonus. Some bonuses include promo codes so only players who insert the promo codes will get the bonus

This would suggest that the deposit bonuses are not optional.

Wagering Requirements On Bonuses At Dragonfish

The wagering requirements from 24th September are to be 4x the amount of bonus + deposit for bingo but a massive 80x bonus + deposit for games.

It is worth noting however that ANY cash in your account is available to withdraw as long as you have deposited the minimum amount required on the site that you are playing at, and have the minimum withdrawal amount in your cash balance.

In Summary

What it means for a player, in layman’s terms, is that where you previously would have been able to deposit £10 at for instance, get lucky on a slots or bingo game and withdraw, this will only still be the case if the win was derived from the cash you deposited and not the bonus money you are awarded.
