Dragonfish Mobile BingoThursday, 4 April 2013 | Written by Carol Dian
Dragonfish have so many brands on their network now that they had to do something to get people interested in their sites once again! They needed a little je ne sais quoi to give them an edge over other software providers that are up and coming and making names for themselves. People are getting a little fed up of seeing all the same promotions and offers over and over again on their huge number of sites (over 120) so a little innovation is what’s required.
How about convenience? There aren’t too many bingo sites that offer their games on a hand held device – so this is definitely be something that would get people interested in Dragonfish again. Now for the drum roll folks………Dragonfish has recently announced that they are going mobile! It’s been rumored for a while – but it’s finally happened! For the moment it’s only available on iPhone – but they are developing an HTML5 platform that will soon ensure that users with Androids and other Smartphones can take advantage of this too. They don’t want to leave any bingo fans out!
Bingo boffins will know that Dragonfish sites have oodles of variety in terms of their bingo and slot games – and you can play all of that now from your phone! Having long journeys or being early for an appointment won’t be as boring anymore – you can whip out your phone and play bingo. You can still take advantage of the social aspect of online bingo and even join in with chat games as there will be a chat facility available. It will also allow you to take part in heaps of their promotions.
You can still deposit and use bonus money as you would normally – however you can’t withdraw as yet – hopefully this is something they will be introducing soon – if you win you want to run away with the money, right? Sites that this will involve will be some of our favourites including Bingo3x, Sparkling Bingo and tonnes more! It’s great for those 2 in particular who have exclusive non networked rooms to enjoy.
What does this say for the future of online bingo? It’s no secret that traditional bingo halls are finding it hard to survive especially after the increase of tax duty on slot machines that has just been announced – but online bingo sites will still be alright, right? Could they become obsolete and just have apps on mobile phones? It’s unlikely – although people will definitely be a fan of the convenience factor – it’s hard to believe that they will stop logging in via a laptop whilst chilling out on the couch with a glass of plonk or a cup of tea. Mobile bingo, bingo on Facebook – what’s next? Only time will tell folks – watch this space!
