Gala Casino Review Continued...
Gala Casino Games
Gala offers over 300 games from leading producer Playtech and its subsidiary company Virtue Fusion, giving slots fans the chance to play some of the most popular offerings on the market, including The Incredible Hulk, Rocky and Prowling Panther. There is a multitude of live and video table and card games in addition to a Macau-style casino.
The only thing you miss out on at Gala Casino is the new breed of state-of-the-art games that push the boundaries of the slots genre and tend to come from some of the smaller developers. However, most players will find the choice here is more than enough.
Gala Macau offers a Far-East twist on live casino games and slots, though for some bizarre reason games like Red Dog and American Roulette are lumped in with Sic Bo and slots like Zhao Cai Jin Bao. It would be nice to see offerings like Mahjong or Pai Gow Tiles here, but they are missing, most likely because there isn’t much demand for them to be produced by software developers. Regardless of whether or not certain titles “fit” in the Macau section, it certainly helps Gala Casino stand out from the rest.
The games work perfectly well and look great, as is expected from such a prominent force in the industry. Unfortunately, only some of them can be tested on in demo mode, which is a shame as that may put off some newer players who want to get to grips with the action before they deposit.
Users may also find the main games menu on the desktop homepage a little irritating, as the thumbnails jump up and spin round whenever you hover over them. It is undoubtedly a clever trick, as it shows off a bit of the action in the game, but it is distracting and slows things down. The animation sticks a fair amount because of this.
The mobile offering is huge, with over 100 titles ripe for the taking, and the apps for Android and iOS are elegant and sleek. If you’re accessing the mobile site on an Android device, make sure that your browser is updated to the latest version or you may find that you have some trouble with getting pages to load.
Gala Casino Bonuses and Promotions
The welcome bonus at Gala Casino is a 100 percent match of your first deposit up to £400, with a wagering requirement of 20 times the deposit and bonus within 14 days. Compared with many of its rivals, it is a decent deal, although 14 days could be a little restrictive if you’ve claimed the full £400.
There are also cash prize draws, a game of the week offering cashback and a Comp Points system, which acts as a loyalty bonus. Weekly bonuses such as Top Up Tuesday are a nice touch and will keep you coming back for more if you’re a fan of the site.
You will find a solid choice of popular titles at Gala Casino and aside from the annoying desktop menu, you will experience some generally good gameplay, particularly on mobile. The bonuses are tempting and offer very fair wagering requirements, which helps to make this casino one well worth considering.
