Some Dragonfish / Cassava sites have started requiring the completion of a 4x WR in order to withdraw bonus winnings. These offers are still profitable especially when played in a higher variance way. See the comments below for more detail.
For those just starting I suggest you focus on the sites that don’t have this restriction. Unfortunately I don’t yet have a list of sites (I’m working on it) but if you check the Terms and Conditions under Bonus Policy, then look under “Bingo Winnings” and it says if they can be withdrawn or if they go to the bonus bankroll.
Who are Dragonfish / Cassava?
888holdings are the company behind many of the most popular bingo sites online. 888holdings bingo sites are run using Dragonfish software and so should really be referred to as Dragonfish bingo sites, these is often confusion around the naming as all dragonfish sites use Cassava to power the payments for their sites, this means that you will see Cassava on bank statements rather than dragonfish when making deposits to one of these sites.
Hopefully this clears up the confusion on the difference between Dragonfish and Cassava, they are the same set of bingo sites!
Dragonfish sites have been known to offer cashback via topcashback so it’s well worth checking if cashback is available before signing up.
Dragonfish are one of the most prolific providers of bingo sites on the internet, and have over 100 sites each offering sign up bonuses.
Dragonfish / Cassava Sign Up Bonuses
Dragonfish sign up bonuses vary and can be anything from 100-500% of deposited amount. They can be played using the treble up technique and are not subject to the same table limits as 15network, this can make them extremely profitable.
The Roulette treble up
Dragonfish Roulette limits can be anything from £100 to £500, depending on the type of Roulette meaning for the purposes of playing Bingo bonuses we can ignore them as they won’t impact our play. If Roulette limits are a concern, generally “3D Roulette” has the highest limits at £500 for each spot and £500 table maximum.
Roulette can be a little tricky to find if you’re not familiar with Dragonfish sites, look for an instant games button which should open a games window, Roulette can be found in the Casino section.
Due to the high table limits we don’t need to limit our deposits to enable it all to be placed on a 1/3 chance. however due to minimum deposit limits prior to withdrawal we recommend depositing at least £30 (or even £50) and follow the standard treble up approach:
Place your £30 balance on a 1/3 chance bet on roulette.
If it wins withdraw £90, congratulations you’ve made £60 profit.
If the Roulette treble up loses, spend the Bingo bonus (£30-£90) on Bingo games
Playing the bingo bonus
Dragonfish sites do have a 2x or 4x deposit and bonuses wager requirement but any winnings go straight into your cash balance and can be withdrawn however you will have to sacrifice any remaining bingo bonus in order to make the withdrawal.
If you had a £30 bingo bonus and spent £1 on bingo tickets which then won you another £30 you would have a balance of £59 (£29 bonus and £30 cash) but the only way to use the bingo bonus would be to lose all your cash as withdrawals remove the bonus.
This means for Dragonfish sites you ideally want to spend all your bingo bonus before any of the bingo games finish so that all tickets are bought with bingo funds before any winnings are credited to your account. If you can spend all of your bingo bonus before any games finish, any winnings will be credited to your cash balance and can be withdrawn without sacrificing any of the bingo bonus.
For this reason you want to try and spend all your Bonus balance (or at least get it as low as possible) before you win any cash. The best way to do this is to spend the Bingo balance as fast as you can before any of the games you’ve bought tickets for finish.
What Bingo games are available at Dragonfish sites?
Dragonfish sites do have a number of Jackpot games that allow bingo bonus to be used to buy tickets and allow you to purchase tickets for a variety of games over upcoming days and weeks. The limits vary but it’s not unusual to be able to buy £20 worth of bingo tickets for 1 game. On some sites there is an advanced purchase button that enables you to quickly purchase tickets for all upcoming jackpot games where as on others you have to manually go into each game.
Jackpot games are good for allowing you to buy tickets in advance but because you buy ticket so far in advance it can take a long time to complete the bonuses.
In addition to the jackpot games Dragonfish also have regular games running every few minutes that can also be used to complete the WR. The approach we tend to take is to review the games that are listed as starting soon and estimate the amount that can be spent on them, then subtract this amount from your balance to out how much to spend on Jackpot games.
Buy the jackpot games first (we start with the games that are starting soonest). Once you’ve bought tickets for the jackpot games go back and buy tickets for ay upcoming games. If you have any balance left you can then go back and spend this on more jackpot games.
Withdrawing from Dragonfish / Cassava
Withdrawing from Dragonfish sites is done via the Cassava payment software. Most sites have a rule that you have to have made £30 of deposits before making any withdrawals.
In addition to this the minimum withdrawal is £30. If you’re deposit or balance is less than £30 you could make a deposit then instantly withdraw the whole balance but this is likely to flag you as a bonus abuser, we therefore recommend that if you need to make an additional deposit to meet the requirements you at least turn it over once on Blackjack, Roulette or one of the other games. Blackjack is our personal preference. If it’s a balance below £30 that’s causing the problems then we just play on Blackjack to meet the £30 minimum withdrawal level.
Dragonfish regularly offer reload bonuses of anything from 20-300%. At 60% these can be profitable but due to the number of sites available we generally prefer to sign up to a new site rather than play a reload bonus, having said that on occasion if the reload bonus is 100%+ we will redeposit into a site. For reload bonuses follow the same approach of trebling them up on roulette, if it wins withdraw,if it loses spend the bonus on bingo as quickly as you can.
When playing reload offers, make sure you input the promotional code correctly when making the deposit
To summarise playing Dragonfish bonuses
- Sign up & Deposit £20-£50 with promo code (if required)
