Gala Bingo Mobile App Review
Posted by Loquax on Thursday 4th August 2016
Gala Bingo are the biggest name in bingo and it's no surprise that they have a mobile app for player's to download. In fact they have two - one for bingo and one for slots and games. Both are free via the App Store and both can be accessed using the same login details you use for desktop play.
When you first login to the Gala Bingo app you're asked to set limits and are also offered the opportunity to login with your fingerprint (where appropriate). After that you are redirected to the app's homepage where you can then access bingo rooms as well as slots and games. There are a lot of slots to choose from so you probably don't need to the other app!
We did find moving around the app on an iPhone a little confusing. It does feel very busy and perhaps a little too crammed. However once you figure out where things are it's relatively easy to get to the bingo lobby, view the latest promotions and make a deposit.
Venturing into the bingo rooms is fine and there's a good selection too. It's great to see that exclusive rooms such as Coronation Street, Emmerdale and Coconut Island are accessible via the app. One thing you will be asked when you first start playing is whether you want to download sounds - we opted not - but this can be revised in settings.
Purchasing tickets is easy and unlike the home part of the app, the game area is a lot less cluttered. If you're feeling flush there's also a side get tab so you can have a flutter on the games you're playing. For players who like chat there's a tab to open up a window and interact with your roomies.
App Or Mobile Site?
If you need help at any time with the games or your account then Gala have included a customer support chat line. This is accessible via the top left of the app. This is a great idea as it means you don't have to switch to a browser or desktop if you have a problem.
Gala Bingo have recently revised their site so that it's more mobile friendly without the app. However we found the app to be the better option. On the downside we did have to occasionally refresh as we lost connection, but that may be more to do with our internet than the app. Overall it's a great way to play your favourite Gala games on the move.
