As one of Britain’s oldest and most established bingo companies, with land based halls all around the UK, Gala Bingo has made a forray in to the online real and all things being considered, their website isn’t half bad.
Utilizing leading Virtue Fusion software, the games operate in the same way other industry giants like Sky Bingo and William Hill all operate. Registration is pretty simple and takes just a few minutes. Navigating your way around the site, is again a very simple procedure, but most important the games play great and pay out well, assuring you of a fair and potentially profitable experience.
Making a deposit at Gala Bingo is also incredibly simple. The site accepts PayPal as well as Neteller, Ukash, PaySafeCard as well as all major credit and debit cards.
Having said all that, quite possibly the best reason to join is the lucrative welcome bonus offer. Simply deposit a minimum of £10, wager £10 on bingo games and then you will be immediately rewarded with a £30 extra bingo bonus.

The software is easy to use and the games are fun.
The lobby showcases lots of games, some with massive cash prizes.
- £30 Free When You Deposit £10: Simply deposit and wager £10 on bingo games and you will be given a £30 extra bonus. The funds can be spent on both bingo and slots games, but remember, you need to wager £10 on bingo games to be eligible for the freebie.
- Coronation Street Promotions: Gala Bingo has recently partners with the popular soap TV show Coronation Street and as such has started offering a host of unique bonuses and promotions. The biggest of which is currently the ‘Roy’s Rolls’ scratchcard promotion, simply spend £5 on bingo on any single day and you will be given a free scratchcard, the scratchcard has prizes of 5p and £500 so you can really win big with promo.
- Bingo Linx Prizes: Because Gala uses Virtue Fusion, it’s on the same network with other popular rooms. This means that they sometimes combine player pools with other leading brands to create games with absolutely gigantic jackpot prizes. It’s definitely not uncommon to see linx games with prize pots in the 4-figure range.
- Penny Bingo: Finally, what good is a bingo site without a flurry of penny games? I say no good! But don’t worry, Gala is here to save the day, with plenty of games with a 1p ticket price, you don’t have to break the bank in order to go for a fab jackpot prize.
One thing I really love about Gala Bingo is that their selection of games really is up there with the best. You will find variations of 90 ball, 50 ball, 80 ball and 75 ball bingo. They also have Gala Live (where you can play along with a game on live TV, as well as ‘specials’ like ‘Rush’ which is a 30 ball speed bingo game that lasts just a couple of minutes (definitely reccomended if you fancy a high paced adrenaline rush).
Like I mentioned above, tickets start from 1p each, most games fall in the 2-10p per ticket region, whereas some games go up to 30p each.
Because the site uses Virtue Fusion, you will find a big selection of slots games. A few of my favourites included Clover Rollover, Bouncy Balls and Catwalk. You will also find some well known TV branded slots, including Corrie Slot, Deal or No Deal, Ant and Dec’s Saturday Night Takeaway, Big Brother, X-Factor and more!
When I think about Gala, I basically end up thinking that their site is a safe bet. In all honesty, it doesn’t completely wow me, but at the same time, it’s a pretty good site. The bonus is a tad bit on the small side if you ask me, but the general value offered by the site is right up there with the best.
As you can imagine, you can’t become as big and popular as Gala without doing a lot of things right, so you can rest assured you will get a great experience, plus a decent chance of winning some money. What more can you ask for from a bingo site?
