Gala Bingo Review
With over 175 bingo halls across the country Gala Bingo is a name that you are likely to have come across at some stage in your life. Gala Bingo online is just as impressive and has many of the same games and promotions on offer that you will find in your local bingo hall.
Prioir to July 2012 Gala Bingo was powered by proprietary software but on 11th July 2012 the site migrated to the ever-popular Virtue Fusion/Playtech software. At the time of the change a new well-known celebrity became the face of the brand, Peter Andre. The brand took on a whole new look as well as different software, their welcome bonus structure changed and some of the features of the old site were lost whilst exciting new features and promotions were added.
It’s a simple process to register at the site, click on the join now button and fill in the form with your chosen username and password, email address, name, address, contact telephone numbers and date of birth. There is also a bonus code box for you to input any special code you may have to receive a special bonus offer. Once registered you are now ready to make your first deposit and play bingo. When you first enter the lobby you will find a Club Finder option available; this enables you to choose a room quickly by setting your preferences by ticket price, number of players in the room and game type – an excellent addition to the Gala Bingo site! The lobby boasts a wealth of information including the game type, ticket price, number of players, time until the next game, prize amount and the name of the chat host on duty (if one is manning the room).
When in any of the bingo rooms you have the option to view a "mini lobby"; next to your game tickets – this offers you the option to choose a room without going back to the main lobby. There are a number of ticket purchasing options available; you can choose one card, max tickets, one or two strips or simply use the slider or manually enter the number of tickets that you wish to purchase for the next game.
Gala Bingo offers three types of the main game; 75, 80 and 90 ball bingo in numerous rooms but there are also themed games like Lucky Numbers Bingo and Deal or No Deal Bingo available. In addition you will also find the popular Virtue Fusion/Playtech community slot games. If you are looking for a little casino style action then you will also find an abundance of instant win games available, over 70 at last count.
If you are looking for big jackpot games then you will find a whole plethora available at Gala Bingo and as for promotions, well we would be here all day if we went through all of the great offers available from this brand. It starts with the welcome bonuses and then there’s Windicates, free bingo and much, much more.
Gala is not only a big name in land based bingo but one that excels in it’s online offering too!
