The Point Of Consumption tax Point of Consumption tax is due to be introduced towards the end of 2014 and whilst many articles suggest that this is not likely to adversely affect the players, the actions of a major network recently would suggest otherwise. Changes have already been implemented to the Dragonfish structure for reloads, a substantial drop in the free money that is awarded on deposits after your first transaction.
Previously the bonus structure on Dragonfish sites like Bingo Cove were 25% on deposits of £10, 50% on everything over £20 – from Bronze level in the BFF loyalty program. As you progressed through the levels and attained a higher status, your bonus increased.
Deposits over £50 earned 50% for Bronze, 55% for Silver, 60% for Gold and 70% for Platinum. Over £100 and this rose to 60% for Silver, 70% for Gold and 80% for Platinum.
The new bonus structure is as follows:
- 10% reloads for £10
- 20% reloads for £20
- 25% for £10 to £20
- 50% for £20 to £50
- 60% for £50 to £100 if Gold, 70% for Platinum
- 70% for £100 or more, 80% for Platinum
There other factors that have been added in to the new bonus structure – cash back is improved for the two lower levels AND there are free tickets for every £20 that you lose at your chosen Dragonfish site BUT these have to be claimed and are not automatically allocated to your account.
We’ve seen some sites post content where they show the Bronze and Silver deals as an improvement for players, and yes they are if you remember to claim your cash back and free tickets. However, let’s be honest here, how many players are actually going to do that? We don’t think too many.
We’d love to hear your comments on the changes. Do you think they are an improvement or a loss for the player or do you believe it won’t have any kind of impact on you as a player?
