Gala Bingo Review
Gala are one of the biggest brands in bingo! They've had quite a journey online having started off with St Minver (who created Chit Chat), moving to a standalone site before jumping on board to the Virtue Fusion platform. Today they're the happy makers to the nation as they make over 350,000 winners a month. If you choose to play at Gala we think you'll definitely be playing happy - find out why below.
One thing that really sets Gala Bingo apart from the rest are it's many exclusives. In addition to the usual Virtue Fusion networked rooms you'll find exclusive 40, 50, 75, 80 and 90 ball rooms plus a whole bundle of specials. These include the Coronation Street Bingo room where original content from the popular soap is played in-between games. One big soap brand would be more than enough but Gala also host Emmerdale Bingo with a number of great games played including Church Lane BOGOF. In addition you can now relish the thrill of the chase in the new The Chase Bingo lobby.
New players are welcomed to Gala Bingo with a generous welcome package. This includes access to a special newbies room for the first three days after registration. Winnings from free games will be paid out as a bonus and wagering terms may apply. Go on to become a first time depositor and there's additional bonuses available. This is currently deposit/spend £10 to receive a £40 bonus (wagering terms apply as described above)
The exclusives aren't limited to TV tie-ins either! Coconut Island, a 50 ball bingo room, was launched in 2014 and is another unique room at the site. In fact Gala offer something for everyone and the exclusives aren't limited to bingo. Joining Coronation Street, Emmerdale and The Chase themed slots are tasty Sugar Rush Rascals slot, the colourful Rainbow Rewards and the fiery Dragon Duel Pots of Fortune slot. These are joined by other popular slots such as Clover Rollover, Bouncy Balls, Rainbow Riches, Jackpot Giant and Cake Off.
Gala Bingo Promotions
Because there's a lot of exclusivity surrounding Gala, they do tend to have some of the best promotions. In recent times they've offered trips to Coronation Street as well as the opportunity to take on The Chasers in a special quiz night. Early risers don't have to miss out on promos either - spend as little as £2 a day in the Breakfast Bingo room and collect stamps that can be exchanged for high street vouchers!
The promotions aren't limited to bingo either. You can win a free spin on the Win-a-Spin slot when you spend £10 on bingo or slots. Spin for the chance to win a daily jackpot of £500 on the classy Cash Pot slot. Gala also do their bit for charity as every Sunday night they run three games where all profits go to the 52 lives charity!
Gala Bingo has recently launched the Gala Games app. It's full of fantastic features plus it boasts a faster loading time as well as showing the recently played games on the home screen. The app offers a quick and easy way to deposit, see what promotions are active and a touch ID for rapid log in. The app can be downloaded via Apple Store or Google Play.
The Gala Bingo Happy Hub is the place to go to see all the social things going on at the home of Play Happy. There's a range of fun and engaging articles plus you can get to know the chat hosts. Make sure you're active in the bingo chat rooms, as well as on social media, as Gala are regularly running competitions for bonuses.
All in all, it's not hard to see why Gala are head and shoulders over their rivals. There's something here for everyone and they're not sitting back and resting on their laurels either. Gala boasts the best selection of bingo rooms and do have plenty of exclusives. When compared to other brands, Gala continues to run big promotions and these can't be overlooked either.
If you're new to online bingo then we think Gala is one of the sites worth starting with. It can be a bit daunting with so many rooms though, but the free bingo room for newbies is a good platform to get started. Gala has been on an upwards trajectory during difficult times so we look forward to seeing what new innovations and exclusives they'll add next.
