All Dragonfish bingo sites, networked or just those powered by the 888 / Cassava software, offer bonuses on initial deposits with exception of those on the newer Real Money Network from Dragonfish.
Currently there is no option to opt out of taking the bonuses so you are immediately governed by the wagering requirement rules of the bonus added to your account (usually 4x deposit + bonus but can be as much as 6x deposit + bonus for bingo).
This is set to change in the not too distant future.
Beta Testing At Silk Bingo For Bonus Opt Out
The test saw half of the players on site given the new feature and half not. The preliminary results were that only 10% of 500 depositors chose to opt out which surprises us.
However, if the 500 players who had access to the feature were note aware it had been added, is this actually a fair analysis?
We’ve seen how the new opt out feature will be shown in the cashier and without knowing it was there, it could be missed.
Looking at the image below, is the new feature instantly apparent to you without comparing it to the current cashier? We didn’t think so and if we were just depositing – we wouldn’t have thought to look under the CCV and Promo Code boxes.
Could it be then that the low number of opt outs were simply because the end user was not aware that it was now an option?
Benefits Of The Bonus Opt Out
As bingo players, the benefit to you in using the bonus opt out is that you’ll only be playing with real cash therefore all winnings will be real cash and therefore instantly withdrawable.
You would not be subject to wagering requirements or play through and there would not be a cap on your winnings which you often find with bonus funds.
Casinos have had this option available for a while now, as have some bingo brands, so it will be good to see it introduced across the Dragonfish sites.
