Gala Bingo Review
Gala Bingo has been a household name for over 20 years, and has over 140 land-based clubs and 5 million members.
Gala means party and this is precisely what you will find here – 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball bingo nestles nicely with slots, casino, scratchcards, and mobile bingo too. Those famous yellow and blue colours are still very much in evidence, as is the club atmosphere, live caller bingo, and ever-popular Deal or No Deal Bingo.
Gala is also the home of the innovative Windicate feature. Here, you can invite five of your friends to join, and any time a player in the group wins, everybody else also wins a bit of cash.
Gala Bingo has introduced some brand new games for mobile players, Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway Scratchcard, Play Your Cards Right Scratchcard, Pots of Gold Scratchcard, Springtime Scratch and Blankety Blank Scratchcard. It pays to play via your mobile device when you get this lot to play!
They say a change is as good as a rest, and in summer 2012, Gala relaunched. It went from being a standalone site, operating on its own software, to part of the huge Virtue Fusion network along with other such famous brands as Mecca, Sky, and Virgin Bingo. Gala provides no download bingo, and although some players are complaining about the switch to Virtue Fusion, in our opinion, it's one of the best platforms, powering some of the most well-known sites out there.
A small criticism – the new homepage is difficult and confusing to navigate. It's easy to miss offers and bingo promotions, which wil would l be a terrible shame, considering there are so many great things going on.
The rooms at Gala are known as CLUBS and buying your tickets is simple. Just use the clever Slider feature to choose price, prize, and how many players you want in each room then let the software do the rest. And do check out the autobuy feature – it takes the stress out of purchasing tickets totally. We love the dauber customising too – choose from a butterfly pattern, heart pattern, smiley face, and many more, in any colour you want. Choose your background, volume of the caller, and your sound effects – it's a totally unique experience.
