Gala Bingo Review
Gala is one of the biggest brands in UK bingo with five million members across its retail and online enterprises. The company’s online venture is part of the Virtue Network and has plenty to offer players.
The Gala Bingo website features the same branding as their retail bingo halls. Players are sure to recognise the signature blue and gold motif that runs through the site. There is no theme as such but as Gala Bingo is currently sponsors ITV soap operas Coronation Street and Emmerdale, you will see characters and iconic images from television appear now and again. The site itself is well laid out with a banner across the top linking to everything you need. The home page also displays thumbnails that will take you directly to featured games and bonuses.
Players will be hard pushed to find a wider selection of bingo games than that available at Gala. There is more than enough to choose from with something to suit every taste and budget. As well as the regular Virtue Fusion offerings such as Deal or No Deal Bingo, Gala also hosts some its own exclusive games, like Coconut Island and Coronation Street. Games include 90-, 80- and 75-ball bingo as well as quicker 40- and 50-ball games if you’re in a rush. In the evenings the live caller room opens, which adds to the whole experience of playing bingo online.
When you’re ready for a change from bingo you’ll find a varied collection of over 250 slots, including Rainbow Riches, Iron Man and television tie-ins like Coronation Street and Britain’s Got Talent Superstar. The gaming tables offer Blackjack and Roulette games in both traditional and live formats as well as Baccarat, Craps and Deuces Wild among others. There’s also a selection of scratchcards to choose from.
Gala Bingo offers new members £25 of free play when they make a first deposit of £10. At the time of writing, new members can also claim a free limited edition Emmerdale mug to celebrate Gala’s sponsorship of the long-running soap. Players are also entitled to a £20 bonus for either bingo or slots when they make their second £10 deposit. New members are also granted access to the free Newbie Room games for seven days following their first deposit.
As part of the Virtue Fusion network, Gala Bingo’s promotions page is always packed with offers. Many of these change from month to month but some stick around for the long term. Among them you’ll find cashback offers, daily deals, happy hours, free scratchcards and bonuses.
Gala Bingo is no different to any other online bingo site in that players have to meet certain wagering requirements before they are allowed to make a withdrawal. At Gala Bingo, the wagering requirement for the Welcome Bonus is 2x. This means you need to spend and play through £50 (2 x £25) before you can cash out any winnings. Be aware that different types of game carry a different weight when it comes to wagering requirements. For example, 100% of bets on slots will contribute to the wagering requirement but only 5% of any stake on Blackjack will count toward your total.
Gala Bingo has strived to make mobile gaming as pleasant and hassle free as possible. You can play on the regular website using a mobile device or you can opt to download the Gala Bingo app for Apple or Android. All players need to do is install the app and login with their usual details then you’re good to go – wherever you are.
