Gala Bingo Review Continued...
Gala Bingo is part of the Gala Coral Group, one of the largest gaming companies in Europe, and is the biggest bingo operator in the UK. That’s quite a reputation to live up to, but Gala is up for the challenge thanks to its great community, fun games and its excellent Virtue Fusion software.
They also hold the Guinness World Record for playing a game of bingo with the largest card ever recorded. Thankfully, the tickets you snap up at Gala Bingo won’t be as overwhelmingly huge.
Gala has a great variety of bingo games on offer, from the standard 90-ball rooms to specialty games like Deal or No Deal bingo. The 75 and 80-ball games get their moment in the sun as well. There are also two 40 and 50-ball games; the exclusive Coconut Island and the Rainbow Riches game based on the popular slot are both available for players to try. Coronation Street bingo is another popular room, offering number calling by stars of the show as well as a progressive jackpot and video clips from Weatherfield. Live caller games are played each evening at 11pm.
However, the Gala TV room is where the site really shines - from 4.30pm to 1am, the room is transformed into an online version of a bingo hall, complete with chatter, big prizes and loads of fun. It’s worth checking out!
Players can also take advantage of slots from operators such as IGT, QuickSpin and NextGen. Branded slots and live table games are available in the Vegas section, and those looking to have a quick bet on the football - or lottery games from around the world - will love the Flutter and LottoBet pages. There’s even a handy video on how to have a punt on various lottery games so that newcomers can get started with ease.
Layout and Design
Gala Bingo has a great lobby that runs smoothly, is easy to navigate and features a “Room Finder” for those that need help deciding on what to play. The blue and gold colour scheme is a nice touch - it feels light and airy without being too heavy on the eyes. Everything runs smoothly thanks to the industry-leading software provided by Virtue Fusion.
The mobile offering is nice as well, with a great selection of slots, scratchcards and bingo rooms. It’s well-designed and makes it easy to play games on the go. Nothing stops or starts and you can hop from one page to another without any issues.
Like many of its rivals, Gala Bingo has a dedicated community section with fun chat games, quizzes and special promotions that can help players win those all-important loyalty points. They have a large social media presence as well, with followers getting access to exclusive offers and special games. It’s a fun way to take part in everything that the site has to offer, and it makes you feel welcome right from the start.
VIPs get access to special bingo rooms, partial cash matches, cashback and even personal account managers plus invites to events at the higher levels. You can only join the scheme by invitation.
All players can make use of a Club Finder so that they can visit bricks-and-mortar Gala Bingo locations across the UK. It’s a great little feature that also keeps you on top of the latest promotions at your “local”.
Gala Bingo Bonuses and Promotions
There’s a special bingo room for new players that is free for seven days after signing up to the site. With a prize pool of over £10,000 and games running for four hours a day, it’s a good way to get started on Gala Bingo. The Allsorts Room is open from noon to 2pm and 6pm to 8pm every day, offering plenty of opportunities to test out your beginner’s luck.
New players will also get a welcome bonus - when you deposit and spend a minimum of £10 on bingo cards, you’ll receive a bonus of £25, giving you £35 to spend. To withdraw any bonus winnings, you’ll need to play through them at least twice, and only on bingo.
You’ll find no shortage of promotions at Gala Bingo, with luxury trips, cool swag and big prize pools all on offer every day of the week.
As with Coral Bingo, most fans of Corrie probably signed up for Gala Bingo as soon as they read the words “Coronation Street”, but there’s still plenty to do for those who aren’t fans of the show. Gala is a great site for dedicated bingo players who like to be rewarded for their loyalty both to the site and the game.
Some may express concern that Gala Bingo also dabbles in sports and lottery betting in addition to offering slots and bingo, but the fact of the matter is that it’s all done to a high standard. If you’re looking for variety from a bingo site, Gala is the place to go.
