As we all know there are numerous internet bingo brands that are part of the huge Dragonfish network and all of these brands offer new players registering an account for the first time a £1 free, no deposit required, welcome bonus but only when financial details are registered during the sign up process. There are has been a change to the Dragonfish brands welcome bonus recently, something you may or may not have noticed.
Previously the £1 welcome bonus came in the form of 1,000 loyalty points added to your account. This proved to be a non-starter with many players because the redemption of these points was often overlooked with novices not quite understanding how to get their £1 into their internet bingo account by using the “my account” section to redeem the points for bingo cash. Even those of us who understand the system found it frustrating because on some browsers the system said “your login details are incorrect” which then meant a visit to the “Help” room to get a host to convert the points for you.
This is no longer the case at sites like Bingo Lottery because now the £1 welcome bonus is instantly credited to your account and visible on your balance the moment you enter any of the rooms.
However something we find infuriating is the constant marketing by some of the brands on the Dragonfish network for this offer as “20 free cards”. Yes, if there happens to be a 5p game running when you register with a site then it is 20free cards but the majority of the games running in the rooms open to unfunded players ARE NOT 5p games. Brands need to change their marketing material to remove mentions of “20 free cards” and tell it like it is, £1 free!
