You might not have heard of Dragonfish, but unless you've been hiding in a cave for the past 15 years you'll most certainly have heard of their consumer wing, 888.
Dragonfish provides games and operations on behalf of the world-leading gambling site, from slots and table games to online payment solutions.
In fact, to date Dragonfish has helped develop a back-end with over 1,000 games including classic and 3D video slots to the biggest progressives around.
888's independent B2B division was established in 2007 to provide partners with games and complete online platforms. It was formerly known as Random Logic, who had spent 10 years or so producing some top-class online slots and games.
Through Dragonfish's 'Total Gaming Services' offering, casino operators are able to benefit from a full range of markets. The firm's AIP (Advanced Integration Platform) technology allows full customisation for its partners.
It's not just 888 themselves which benefit from Dragonfish's expertise. Leading bingo rooms like bwin.party's Foxy Bingo, Moon Bingo and Costa Bingo all follow the Dragonfish network model (including all the added extras like bingo chat moderators and customer support) while the company has enjoyed a relationship with Caesars Interactive Entertainment since 2009. In 2014, Dragonfish signed on the dotted line with bwin.party to continue running bingo platforms through the company.
In 2012, the partnership was extended to cover America's about-to-be-regulated states like New Jersey. Dragonfish now enjoys a foothold in the first legalized igaming states of Nevada and New Jersey.
It is through many of 888's bingo partnerships that Dragonfish has been able to launch its own slots. A branded X Factor slot arrived on the Quickplay platform in 2008 and playable on online bingo clients.
While bingo and table games are the real M.O. of Dragonfish's operations, they still operate a fair few decent slots.
Travel-themed slots like Cafe de Paris, City Life, and Love in London are decent efforts, but can't really compete with the big 3D releases hitting casinos right now.
Better are the big progressives exclusive to 888 sites and Dragonfish bingo network rooms. Millionaire Genie is an Aladdin-themed slot with a massive jackpot usually hitting £1 or £2 million: no surprise, really, when you consider just how many bingo rooms the game occupies.
The game is played with five reels, and features an animated blue genie who moves the action along. And while the free spins round is tasty, it's the progressive - triggered at random - that is Millionaire Genie's biggest draw.
Dragonfish games are available in download or no-download flavours (HTML5, Java or Flash) and available in up to 26 languages for overseas players.
Slots and bingo are just a small part of the Dragonfish story. Video poker, scratchcards, Casino Hold'em, Pai Gow and Caribeean Stud variants have all come out of Dragonfish's stable.
A variety of roulette styles are available, ranging from classic American Roulette to French, European and 'Rockin' Roulette' with a lotto-style number draw instead of a wheel.
Available in 18 languages, Dragonfish also boasts a Live Dealer casino in download and instant-play for its partners. The award-winning software is geared towards high rollers, specifically Asia-based players.
Dragonfish's Quickplay range of fixed-odds games, meanwhile, can be found at all partner casinos.
