About Gala Bingo

Gala Bingo is one of the longest established sites in the UK. It first launched in 2006 on its own unique software, but during July 2012 it migrated to the award winning Virtue Fusion platform to support its ever increasing number of players.

No bingo site launches more new games in than Gala Bingo and they teamed up with some of the biggest names in TV to do it. You must try Coronation Street Bingo with its Golden Cobbles progressive jackpot feature and Emmerdale Bingo, new for 2016. Such games are exclusive to Gala Bingo and show the effort they are continually putting into research and development of what players want.

Gala claim to have over 100,000 winners every week, and that’s no surprise really when you consider just how many different games the site has. There’s pretty much something for every taste on the site, with some rooms filled with just a handful of players, while others will have hundreds.






The site always goes the extra mile to keep itself fun, current and in the news. You will find Gala Bingo in the Guinness Book of World records not just once, but twice. The brand holds the records for the bingo game using the biggest bingo balls ever – which took place on the famous cobbles of Coronation Street itself and for the bingo game using the biggest bingo card ever.


WhichBingo Awards 2017 – Best Playtech Bingo Site – Winner

Playtech/Virtue Fusion is the platform of choice for many of the top bingo sites on the net, but for 2017 Gala Bingo was voted by players as being the top performing site for them. It has multiple exclusive rooms and slot games that may count in its favour, plus loads of choice when it comes to games and promotions. Players clearly love what they see.

At the same awards Gala Bingo was also runner-up in three categories:

Best Mobile Bingo Experience 2017, Best Community and for the top award, Best Bingo Site.

WhichBingo Awards 2016

  • Best Online Bingo Site
  • Best Mobile Bingo Experience
  • Best Playtech Bingo Site

In 2016 Gala Bingo achieved the treble, scooping three Awards, including the top accolade.

The site also did well in 2015. That year Gala Bingo launched lots of new features and new games. All that hard work paid off as the site scooped not just one, but two WhichBingo Awards that year – Best Unique Bingo Game for Coconut Island 50 ball bingo game and  Best Mobile Bingo Experience.

Bingo games

Gala Bingo also features all of the standard Virtue Fusion bingo variants such as Deal or No Deal Bingo, Lucky Numbers Bingo, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Bingo and the acclaimed Rainbow Riches Bingo.

New to Gala Bingo in October 2016 – The Chase Bingo and The Chase slots and instant games. More TV tie-ins as The Chase and The Governess Anne Hegerty and her colleagues become the next big names to grace the bingo rooms.

Exclusive rooms – The Gala exclusive rooms are Allsorts, Bingo Lotto, Castle, City, Coconut Island, Coronation Street Bingo, Emmerdale Bingo, Mountain, Royal, Rush and Big Banker Bingo and The Chase Bingo.

Cash Cubes was removed from the site early in January 2017 with no indicatation as to whether it would return.

The Chase Bingo – Another Gala Bingo exclusive! Gala Bingo in conjunction with Playtech have secured the licence rights to develop and run bingo and slot games which are branded from the popular ITV show The Chase. The bingo is based around the 90 ball bingo game with an additional feature built in for winners.

Side Bets – This added feature in the 90 ball bingo rooms was added in August 2016 and enables players to bet on the final outcome of their bingo game as long as at least one ticket has been purchased.

Play in the exclusive Gala Bingo rooms and select the Side Bet option before ticket buying time runs out.

You will have four options to potentially bet on and you can play them all for each game if you wish. Choose from Odd/Even, Colour, Pair or Higher/Lower. Choose your stake and see the potential winnings should you be correct for any of them.

Each option relates to the final ball on which ‘house’ is called. Odd or even is obvious. With colour it depends on the colour ball of the last number called from the nine that are in use. Pair refers to double numbers like 11 or 55 etc. Higher/Lower refers to number higher or lower than 45.

Slots and casino games

There are a good selection of slots game in the bingo section of the site, but slots and casino games each have their own separate section to add even more choice.

Lots of different developers are featured and you will find Cleopatra, Montezuma, Ghostbuster’s, Shaman’s Dream, Siberian Storm and Crown of Egypt to name just a few from the slots section. Add to this numerous exclusive slot games like Cashmeleon and Cake Off and lots of branded Emmerdale and Coronation Street slots and scratchcards and you have an enviable collection and are spoiled for choice.

Under the casino section you will find some mouth watering jackpot slots like Jackpot Giant and the Age of the Gods series of games. You will also find the more recent Batman series of slots.

Withdrawal and wagering

  • Minimum withdrawal: £5
  • Processing time: 3 – 5 working days
  • Bingo wagering requirement: 4x bonus

Wagering requirements can differ depending on the games you choose to play. See website T&Cs for further details as requirements may have changed since the time of writing.

Happy Points loyalty scheme at Gala Bingo

This loyalty scheme is very popular with Gala Bingo players as it rewards them just for playing at the site as they normally would. With a slogan like ‘let Happy Points put a smile on your face’ the brand certainly has a lot to live up to.

You’ll earn Happy Points every time you buy bingo tickets or play any slots or games that are under or featured in the specific ‘Slots and Games’ tab with cash funds. Every £1 spent is worth points – different amounts of points depending on whether you are spending on bingo, slots or games. The amount of points you have determines your loyalty level and the amount of points you receive per pound spent also increases with your loyalty level:

  • Chilled  Entry level
  • Cheery at 3,000
  • Chirpy at 12,000
  • Cheeky at  25,000
  • Chipper  Invite Only
  • Chuffed  Invite Only

It’s amazing how quickly the points add up if you play regularly, especially bingo where you earn between 7.5 and 17.5 points per pound depending on your loyalty level. You can redeem points from 100 upwards and every 1,000 points is worth £1 to play with.

At Chipper level you start to feel the benefits of becoming a VIP; it’s like being a pre-VIP if you like. You will get a designated manager to ensure you are enjoying the games and sometimes to make special offers.

Climb all the way up the loyalty ladder and become a Chuffed VIP and enjoy all the amazing benefits, including exclusive promotions, extra-special prizes, exclusive bingo three nights a week in a private room, exclusive bonuses and weekly deposit rewards plus double loyalty points on all your play every Saturday, plus much more.

Worst site ever. CHs are rude and only speak to roomies they like and the ones they dont they pick on and are downright nasty. The bonuses they state in their t and c are never met and its the same 20 winners day in day out even thou hundreds play daily.
I have reported this site to gaming commission and gone to papers as do believe this site should b closed down. People pay to play fair and this site is not that.
Customer services do not care at all and if they decide to answer you at all its rude and insulting.

The worst site for losing in my seven years of gambling. So tight a total disgrace.

I wish this was a very bad dream but unfortunately it’s not. I played for a year on this site and I lost thousands.
How many times do you have to lose? The features hardly ever comes in. Bare in mind I start playing a pound spin working my way up to 10 pound spin every day the same some times it will just take.
I’m leaving this review as in 6 months my partner up to today had used he’s inherentence money. 6 months every day of playing the Big Banker and every day it doesn’t matter when you play it it’s like it’s stuck in the same greedy game he went through thousands in these six months. And in the hope to win some back for me.
This site is a disgrace and I’ve now passed on details and bank account transactions to the gaming communion.
This is not just bad luck how can it happen to two people time and time again.
I will take this company to court if need be – I have the means to and I will do.
You can play other games as I did for hours on end to get hardly up.
GAMING COMMIITION needs yo look into this as it’s daylight robbery tightening up the machines so you will never win.
How can you take that amount is beyond me. At least with Mecca bingo you have good and bad days, but hear it’s months apon months without a win.
And I totally get we don’t always win, but a year I played on this site and my partner 6 months. And you can’t win every day I think come on surely I must be able to win today and it’s the same old. Perhaps I need to put in another 10k as they haven’t had enough of my money.
I would advise anyone new not to go on hear and exsisting costumers who never win to come off of this site it’s the most greediest out their.

Been a part of the Gala online bingo since 2014, the site is not worth any amount of money or any one time. If you do sign up please be aware that you can deposit that first amount to get that special bonus and take advance of the week free bingo, but I will say this please do not deposit any amount of money after the first time depositing, that will allow you to bank any money from free games after the first week and the Alsorts and dreams free games.
I not deposited in 5 months and play free games on Alsorts and Dreams all day long, every day without a win, the winners seem to be pre-set or have the ability to win more than 5 times a day and still complain and get rewarded with wins. Also, I will say this if you do not win and deposit you get rewards with two slots that only pay out between 10p – 50p after you spend £5 and £10 on bingo. So I ask you do you think it is worth your money. Just save up and spend it on things you really need because this site as well coral bingo you will have no luck or no money left if you just deposit.

Very poor site, very rarely get a win over £10 with these when playing £1 a spin.. bonuses come very rarely, not many promotions for valued costumers, be prepared to spend a fortune for very little return. Better gaming sites out there.

I wouldn’t recommend as my winnings and the history of my last winning mysteriously vanished from my Gala bingo account when I went to log back into my acc an hour and so after winning.
With the wagering conditions I bet they won’t let me withdraw any cash even though I would have met the wagering requirements but for the vanishing money. It would be interesting to see if anyone had a similar issue with Gala.

The only thing you get for your money is whatever you spend … never any freebies, cashback bonuses or promos. Becoming vip is invite only so as and when they feel like.
I spent lots here over past month and apparantly they been reviewing my account for over 3 weeks as i think i should be vip well before now.
I definatly get more back at the other online sites i play at and they will be getting my top votes and great review.
Credit were credit is due i really didnt want to give bad review it would of been a lot better if Gala had stopped fobbing me of about my vip status. All i want is someone to actually review my account !!

Newbies an vips again win on it same as cobble jp in corrie room usually a vip wins it and 90 jp emmerdale newbie or vip. Observed enough to see how it works.

I joined Gala on their ‘Deposit £10 and get £30 welcome bonus’. The £10 had to be played exclusively on bingo, which mine was, but no £30 welcome bonus was forthcoming. When I emailed them they replied saying my email wasn’t the email registered to the account (which is quite surprising as it is my only email address). After about 8 emails to them via their site and my email I have told them to close the account as their replies are irrelevant and don’t relate to the query I was asking. They kept replying to me as Dear Joanne, then Dear Sarah (both not my name) and the service was appalling. Their live chat is non existent, just kept saying ‘not available’ for a week. Avoid.

Gala is great as newbie allows you to win here an there as has newbie room linked to sister site coral like many rooms tbh. Unless your a big gambler avoid as same name winners constant in soap rooms especially emmerdale room.
As newbie u will win but soon put it back..ive not won in 4 months where as i use to win once a week, twice if lucky. Plus voted for them to win awards lol…dont let the bonus offer an free gala mug suck you in.
Many people have left this site due to same name winners an your money goes fast.
Free room every 10 mins with about 800 players, house 3 pound bonus, impossible to win. Lots of rooms linked to mecca, sky, coral, paddy power an no doubt more
Soap rooms over 100 players now where when i joined last year 40 to 50 at most.
Chat hosts are strict unlike other sites where the cms swear an are laid back, plus most of ch work on lots of other sites.
Back to hall bingo for me online ones are too predictable..

Never had any issues with Gala Bingo 🙂

Always paid our without issue, but is a very busy site which means your chances of winning are not quite as good, loyalty scheme could also be better.
A bonafide site who do things by the book and fairly , unlike some of the smaller sites:)

Of the more than 30 bingo sites I have played on this has to be one of the very worst. I got an email for a promo which said that if I deposited 5.00 I would have access to a free bingo room the next week, and for whatever reason the system didn’t give me access, and when talking to customer support they said there was nothing they could do about it, so was tricked into depositing with a promo they wouldn’t honour.
The site graphics are generally quite ugly compared to other sites, and there seems to be little chance of winning anything, no matter what room you play in, whether a room with a low number of players and a very low house, or a room with many players and a slightly more decent prize. The money drains away on this site giving virtually no time for playing, when the same amount of money on other sites would last for days.

The chat rooms are boring with very dull quizzes and few games, so there are not even any added bonuses that the sites I regularly play on have.

All in all I would advise you to avoid Gala like the plague, as there are many better sites out there! Just gutted I wasted my money on Gala and didn’t spend it somewhere else.

80sDiva… I have been a customer of Gala for a couple of years, I find the customer service is 10 out of 10.
Bingo is fun too play – chat rooms are very friendly with CMs doing their job
Slots has a huge variety of games I enjoy too play.
Unfortunately you can’t win them all so set daily spend limits and don’t put yourself out of pocket – I have been on other sites & trust me they are shocking.
Have fun people my overall view of Gala is its safe & you do win as I have but you will also lose.

After just writing a negative review for another site I realised I don’t write enough positive ones so I thought I would.
Gala bingo is a fantastic site. Tons of bingo rooms, tons of slots and a very real chance of winning. I tend to be 50/50 on the slots when it comes to winning. Won quite a lot on this site and continue to deposit on a regular basis.
I am more of a slots player, but I do like the odd game of bingo. It is harder to win on bingo, but that’s because so many people play. This in turn means you win much more if you do win.
Chat hosts are friendly and helpful and there so many bonus games, freebies and choice.
Only downside is you never get bonus codes or deposit matches, but none of the big sites tend to do so. Not sure if they still have it but beginners freebie room is brilliant as well. Won over 15.00 in it and had a weeks access. This site always pays out within 2 days of me winning with no hassle at all. Think I will be still playing on this site for many years to come.

Didnt like Gala Bingo at all, but then I dont like VF sites. All seem the same poor layout etc. Played for a few hours, nobody chats in the chat room, couldnt find CH either. Asked about the various bingo rooms just got ignored and got pretty bored very fast.
My 10.00 deposit lasted about 10 minutes and then my 40.00 bonus just drained me watching the same old same old. Like watching paint dry. I won 40c from extra balls in one of the rooms even though I had 1tg from really early on in the game. It was never going to come out as this became a regular thing with the following games.
Cant say I see the attraction a lot of people have for Gala although their live chat staff seemed friendly enough, but then that was when they were enticing me to deposit. Wont return to Gala.

You even have a good chat with guests and the chat hosts while playing lol. Been with Gala nearly a year now and am happy to say don’t think any other site would win me over. I enjoy a bit of bingo when kids have gone to bed and soaps have finished lol.

I have played on Gala Bingo for just over a year now and its absolutely fabulous. I’ve played on other sites, but none of them compare to Gala. They have a fantastic range of games to suit everyone (i should know I’ve played on all of them). They have generous payouts and plenty of promotions. As for their Chat Hosts, well they are all lovely so its difficult to choose one over another. In short Gala are TOP OF THE BINGOS.

Hi. I joined Gala bingo 9 years ago and it’s the best online bingo out. Its very fair and has the best jackpots out there.
Every body is so friendly, if you ever need help there is always a ch around and there is live help 24 hours a day who are very helpfull. They make you feel so welcome.
No body can match the Newbie room – you get 7 days free. We’re just like one big happy family and over the years ive met some very good mates. they mean a lot to me. I’ve even been to meet some.
Gala is not fake, what you see is what you get, I’ll never leave. There isent any scams. We get free bingo for 8 hours a day and on a sunday we get a hour of free bingo. All i can say is you won’t find a better bingo site to play at home while you chillout. Join us guys, you wont regret it ,and yes i am for real my name is stewart.

Been with Gala Bingo for a year now. Normally spending few hundred per month! This month i spent 8,000 in about 3 hours. mad moment i know, but was thinking the more i bet the better chance i have of winning big!
Truth is i won 1,000 here and there before losing the lot in that 3 hours. Just proved i need to take it slower as i now know the more you play not the more you pay is the best format to win!!!!

I left a good review below back in October when I first joined Gala. However since then Gala have updated the terms and conditions for the newbie welcome bonus.
I recommend my friend recently and received 25.00 referral bonus. There is a 2x wager on this bonus meaning you have to spent 50.00 of any winnings from the 25.00 before your winnings go in to cash.
The have not added a wager on to the 40.00 welcome bonus and although this is in the small print, it is not explained fully how you can win any cash from it.
You deposit and spend 10.00 then receive your 40.00 welcome bonus. There is a 2x wager on this, so you have to spend 80.00 of any winnings first then once you have wagered it will then spend the remaining welcome bonus (which has a 7 day expiry). This means that you have to gamble 120.00 in 7 days before you receive any cash winnings.
120.00 in seven days is a lot to gamble. It is very excessive. Either the welcome bonus needs at least 30 day expiry and/or it should be changed so that you can spend the welcome bonus first then any wager requirements after.
This has totally put me off Gala. The wager requirement is a big let down. Gala needs to change this if they want to draw new customers in.

Gala bingo is the best online bingo site ever. The chat hosts are the first to greet you and make you feel like you are important. There are a fantastic variety of rooms, ranging from 90 ball rooms to 40 ball rooms. Plenty of variety for everyone with big money prizes.
The chat host team are very welcoming and so friendly and do their jobs extremely well. The chat hosts have a great ear for listening to roomies stories and chat about everything. Sometimes people who are lonely play on the site just for a bit of comfort and a friendly bit of chat. I vote gala number 1 !!!

Offer you a 50.00 bonus on a 10.00 deposit and through out chat they just keep pestering and promoting their bonus offers to you which are also waste of time! Used to love Peter Andre, but not anymore, can’t believe he is promoting this site as well as all the other famous stars. Have they not got anything better to do!
Also a lot of repeat winners which becomes very boring! So people don’t waste your money or time on this site, as you wont win! So big thumbs down for Gala Bingo!

I joined 1 year ago but after few weeks closed my account. After playing elsewhere I thought id give gala another go, so I rejoined. But when I deposited without even spending a penny I recieved the bonus (which I knew I was not supposed to get) I went on to win over 200.00 and when I went to live chat to tell them to take there bonus back of course they blocked my account.
I spoke to some1 explaining all this for them to tell me my 1st account had not even been closed. So after 10+ emails asking for a telephone number to talk to some1 about this they finally respond with an address to send a letter. I have sent a letter 2 weeks ago and no response. So now my account is frozen, what happens to my 200.00 that I won?
Basically they keep it. They are the worst for customer service. Im going to write to trading standards. If any1 knows of any where else I can write your info would be grateful.

If your looking for more of a ”real” bingo feel.. Gala Bingo is the site for you. Lots more players meaning bigger full-house prizes. Lots of different bingo rooms, even a live room and exclusive to Gala rooms with some great JP’s.
I must admit i haven’t had any great or big wins off the bingo side, but they have a wide range of games, slots, scratch cards etc (which ive won from). The site can be a little laggy and slow sometimes, but it is a big site. I don’t find you get many bonuses or free money (with WR), not many emails but it is overall a great site.

I love Gala Bingo – I have played on many sites over the years but this is most definitely my favourite. There are so many bingo rooms to choose from 90 ball, 80 ball, 75 ball and now 50 ball rooms. My favourite is the 1980 room there is such a variety of games played each day and you dont have to spend the earth – I really like the Amazon Room – this room is a cash only room but the prizes are great and I have won quite a few times in there.
The choice of slot game are great fun too and I have my favourite on there which is Fluffy Favourites – I choose the 1p spin at 25p a go and have won £50 a couple of times which you cannot complain about.
The CH’s are really good do everything within their power to make you feel welcome especially as a new player and will always answer any queries efficiently and promptly. The banter in some of the rooms can be good fun too if it wasn’t for the moaners – who complain that they ‘never win’ or ‘always the same winners’ – I have been one of those same winners but I spend my money and take my chances like everyone else – I just feel if you are going to be that negative – dont play.
Bingo is a game, enjoy it, enjoy the chat, meet new people and the best site of them all has to be Gala Bingo.

I joined Gala Bingo 7 years ago and this is my favourite bingo site. I’m not spending much on there but there’s allsorts room with free bingo everyday and they give out bonuses almost every week. Can`t say im very lucky but I won a few times ( hundreds) .
I believe Gala is one of the best sites and has lots of customers. Some people complain they cannot win because there are too many players , but if you ask me (“an old member”) I could recommend you some rooms with less players (sometimes even less than 10 people ) and you have chances to win.

I joined Gala Bingo a week ago via WhichBingo website for the extra 10 pound welcome bonus (deposit 10 received 50 bonus) – Great offer. I am enjoying Gala Bingo so far, so much choice of rooms. The 1p & 2p tickets have decent prizes compared to other sites I have played.
The newbie room is free for 7 days for 2 x 2 hour sessions per day with great bingo bonus prizes (the best I have seen so far).
There is no wager requirement (which is a big positive), meaning you can withdraw without having to wager 4x your welcome bonus. Withdrawals are processed very quick.
So far so good. I am pleased I registered with Gala, and thank you to WhichBingo for the extra 10 pound promotion offer 🙂

There are hardly enough words to describe how much I love Gala Bingo. The games are great fun, the CH’s do EVERYTHING in their power to make you feel welcoming and will answer any queries efficiently and promtly. The banter in the rooms is generally great fun too and there is always plenty of laughs to be had.
The Gala TV presenters are all so much fun, again they really make you feel welcome and part of the Gala family. They are always bubbly and entertaining and genuinely make me laugh out loud almost every time. There are so many different bingo rooms, slots and games that it is near-on impossible to not find something you will enjoy playing.
If I have any complaints they are really small and almost insignificant, but as a fan of the site I have noticed a few niggles that do occasionaly make me want to sign out a little quicker than I would normally. These niggles are that there sometimes seems to be a lack of chat in the ‘chat’ rooms (the clue is in the title people). I have also noticed far too many people moaning and complaining when they don’t get a win; well of course we would all love a win, but Bingo is like a lot of games, pure luck of the draw. Instead of moaning and complaining that its “the same winners every time”, why not just have fun, enjoy yourselves, join in the banter, congratulate those who do win and if you get a result surely that is a bonus.
Bingo is a game, enjoy it, enjoy the chat, meet new people and the best site of them all has to be Gala Bingo.
Marks out of 10 for sheer fun, 100. Marks out of 10 for the CH’s and some roomies making you feel welcome and the great giggles and banter, 1000. Marks out of 10 for Gala TV and the presenters, games and laughs to be had, 10000.

I would never recommend this site to anyone. My daughter signed up and made a deposit. No problem while she was paying in, as soon as she won a very small amount they would not pay out. She sent in all her identities and they lost her passport, national insurance number letter and bank statement. She had a variety of excuses about it.
They was told the information which was sent by email for speed instead of the post, was lost in cyber space. I would warn anyone to not use them at all. It is not all it is cracked up to be. They will take any money off you, but believe me when you win they will pull any stunt to not pay out.

Live Help seems nigh impossible to get through to and I have sent many emails to them asking for help and advise but just got 1 reply, stating nothing is wrong, but clearly there is something wrong when my payment method has suddenly vanished. Also had problems when I tried to make a first withdrawal, they were asking for all sorts of ID&V documents.

Gala Bingo, what can I say? The Customer Service is terrible to put it mildly. I had sent at least 10 emails, both on their site and also via my email address. No replies whatsoever. Week 3 I began to get annoyed as I was fed up of asking them to resolve an issue, I asked them to close my account and stated the reasons why – my previous inquiries not being answered.
The very next day I received an email from them saying they have closed my account as per my request. Seems they would rather lose customers rather than delve into a little bit of investigation to resolve a query. I also had bad service when I first joined the site and wanted to make a withdrawal. I sent all the required documents, but they kept replying 2 days later saying the documents were not readable or were not good enough and they wanted more information etc etc.
3 weeks later I eventually got confirmation that my winnings had been paid. Not good, especially as I was using Pay Pal, but ended up having to provide Gala with my bank account details, passport, proof of address etc – was expecting them to ask for my shoe size next!

If you want massive variety of games, endless choice of slots, flashy backgrounds then Gala Bingo is for you. For me though it just seems too busy and too much choice is not always a good thing. I played here for a while and deposited regularly, yet when I had a win that’s when the problem started.
I was asked for verification as soon as I wanted to withdraw money, but they had no problem at all taking endless amounts from me without question. This went on for ever, I sent ID, they never got it, I sent it again…..they never got it, I gave up in the end and decided not to play at Gala again.
As far as I am concerned they should seek verification BEFORE taking your money, this is another site that allows you to cancel your withdrawals knowing full well what they are doing!

I agree about the bad customer service. I won a little bit on slots and withdrew. Heard nothing else, just expected money would turn up in my bank a few days later. A week later check my account and it says withdrawal is “waiting”, contacted them and was told they’d sent an email asking for ID-I promptly sent it in but was annoyed I’d wasted all that time waiting and had definitely not received an email from them asking for ID. You have to constantly chase them up. Now I’ve sent it in I’m hoping I wont have to contact customer service again.

I have been a member of Gala Bingo for many years and seen how they get their knickers in a twist with being a sister site with Coral Bingo. Result of which some negative reviews for both sites.
Freebies and bonus benefits at Gala were denied if you have already had them at Coral…but both sites are now re-launching to put this right. Don’t let this put you off about Gala Bingo – It’s still one of the very best bingo sites for original innovation. It has a huge range of table games, slots, instants and also virtual sports games not seen on most bingo sites.
It offers fun, value, freebies and loyalty bonuses. There are not many other sites that offer new members 5 days of free bingo with all £30 prize pots.
The chat hosts there are great and they really do their best to help you with issues.

I signed up to Gala Bingo when it relaunched with the new games, but the site is so full of bugs I have yet been able to play. I cannot top up as the deposit/withdrawal page says it can not be displayed or may have been moved, the live help button will not work so I can not talk to anyone about it on the site and the phone number just rings and rings and nobody answers, so on a whole its a waste of internet space.
I remember not being able to play the games before the relaunch as the games would tell me the session had expired before I had even pushed a button so it’s gone from bad to worse for me. If I could give minus points for review I would.

Ok, I have to say that I have fully warmed up to Gala Bingo now. I was not so sure on this when the had their re-vamp (nobody likes change). Their promotions are great, and even though I don’t always get a win the chat host are great fun as well as their Gala Live! 🙂

Never liked Gala B ingo even when they changed over,as you say nobody likes a change same here. VF have destroyed my fave game of bingo Lucky Numbers, so at the moment my bingo days are over – just waiting to see what happens over time. OK it’s better for site more playing, i just can’t get close to a win in there since they changed it and am certainly not depositing all the time with no return. 800 odd playing in there. Was hard to win before it’s near impossible now. Seem to be letting the ones win who are new to it, hardly seen a regular player win since change; not moaning just saying lol,gl gl

I find Gala to be really boring and extremely hard to win on. I used to like it a few years back and rejoined some months ago, along with most other Virtue Fusion sites, but I hardly ever play on it.
They send me free bonuses from time to time so it’s the only time I go on. There are lots of different rooms to choose from, but they are all completely packed. I chose the room with least players when they last gave me a £5 free bonus, but there were still around 50 players all playing for a £15 pot which is very low for the number of players. I spent my whole £5 bonus buying 50 tickets and still didn’t get close to a win. I would never deposit here again. I much prefer other sites on the network, this one is somehow different and there are too many players in every room.
I tried to close my account, but live help doesn’t appear to work every time I go on, or no one responds and I sent them an email and got no response either. So my account will stay open, but I won’t be tempted to put any money on. With so many other sites to choose from I avoid this one now. Good welcome bonus, but that’s about it.

Tea and Bingo, Bingo Friends, Live Bingo and all those types- the sites that have smaller rooms so you actually have a chance of winning. I have been back on Gala recently only to play slots but don’t like Gala bingo as too many players.

Love Gala Bingo. The players are a great laugh and the CM’s are all friendly and helpful too. They have free bingo everyday and I have won on a few occasions. There are plenty of bingo rooms to play in, some linked to other sites and some just Gala.
A fantastic range of slot games which can be on a good run or a bad run – I have witnessed both so I can’t really grumble. You don’t hear people bragging about winning hundreds of pounds every few seconds, which is a plus!!! I have made a lot of friends playing at Gala, yes we moan sometimes (in banter), but nothing is taken the wrong way and you don’t get bullied into silence or feel left out when you are new. I have been playing here for 3 years now and it is my favorite site.
Winnings are also paid rapidly, usually the next working day. They also have lots of promotions.

I have played Gala Bingo on several occasions and had technical problems meaning I’ve been unable to buy tickets when I’ve wanted to due to their server problems.
It is obvious it is problems with their site as it comes up with server error messages that relate to their site. Also, loads of other players were saying in chat how they were having problems. On contacting support, they would have none of it and tried to blame my computer even though I pointed out loads of other people were having the problem and that I had tried other sites to check it wasn’t my computer and cleared my cache, etc, but still they would not agree there had been a problem with their systems.

They have lots and lots of good promotions, especially in Gala live. I have logged on with no cash in my account to take part in all the fun and games that goes on in Gala live and won up to £60 cash for answering a question live on the phone and I’ve won £10 quite often for the live yes/no game with Kevin Dwaula.
They often send me free money to play slots or bingo and the WinWin bingo was absolutely fantastic. The welcome bonus is very good and new players win very often, so its very easy to complete the wagering of only x2, which is really low compared to a lot of sites these days. So for fun and winnings and to be treated royaly go to Gala bingo.

Gala Bingo is a god site, with nice friendly players and hosts. Quite difficult to win on the linked games, but have had a fair few wins in the smaller rooms. Good selection of slots and good promotions on offer each day. Easy and speedy withdrawals. My 2nd favourite site of the year 2012. Will look forward to playing again in 2013.

This is, like most other sites, just full of repeat winners on a daily basis. When you complain they say they are regulated and monitored, but when you try to dig deeper in how winners are chosen they don’t give you any information and just keep saying the same thing. They claim to use a random number generator – but it cannot be random when its always the same person winning all the time. Truly one of the worst sites out there at the moment. But then again, most sites are like this anyway.!!

I signed up at Gala Bingo because the welcome bonus seemed amazing, deposit £10 and get £30 to play with. They didn’t make it clear in my opinion as to the fact that you only get the bonus if you play all the money on bingo, and i spent some money on the slot games, so didn’t the bonus. Communication is absolutely terrible on the live 24/7 chat as they hardly ever respond, and when they do customer service is absolutely shocking. And then my account got blocked because I didn’t verify my account, which again I was not told I had to. So they sent me an email, saying I need to send lots of documents, which i physically don’t have so its not possible and then I’ve lost my money!!! terrible website, stick with cheeky bingo!!

I signed up to Gala bingo during their promotional offer to receive 5 days worth of free bingo starting the Monday after you deposit. I never received this and when I complained to customer service they said there had been a technical error and there was nothing they could do. Apparently other customers were also affected. They did however offer me £5 goodwill credit. An O.K site but I think there are definitely better out there!

I felt misled by Gala Bingo. I spent £10 and then asked the contact team about the bonus money promised in the ads. I was told it had to be spent on only bingo tickets, other things on the site didn’t count. This was in the small print. Other sites often add bonus money for new member straight into the account when you join so feel this was poor. I will stick to Tombola in future. I also found the actual site to be cheap looking and hard to navigate round, would not recommend to others.

Tried it… okay, but it says deposit 10 pounds get 30 pounds to play with , you have to wait 48 hours for the bonus….and any winnings from that goes into Bingo Bonus….if you win from that you have to make 2 more deposits before any winnings go into real cash.

I have played on Gala Bingo for quite a while. They have recently changed the site, but to the players its the same. Always the same winners and I’ve never won much and have now left. There is a lot of moaning and complaining being done which makes bingo boring. They have crammed so much on the bingo page it becomes confusing. I didn’t like the chat as too much bickering and not much fun. Don’t like the gala site at all.

I was happy when Gala Bingo changed to virtue fusion, but not now it’s a disgrace. Peeps get bullied and verbally attacked in chat rooms for disagreeing with 1 off the so called gang and then they get jumped on by their followers. omg, they go on and on and on and this leaves the CM in a tricky spot. What are they supposed to do? Ban 10 roomies or the lone person who hardly said much, obvious – the 1 person gets a chat ban. Seen it loads of times. Seen it that much I’ve closed my account Bit of a pain really as i had not lost on the site since it changed.

Hi there bingo buddies. This bullying thing seems to be quiet common on a lot of bingo sites as i have read peoples comments on here often enough and people who complain do seem to get the rough end from cms …..Do they want to retain customers or not? It just makes me wonder, it’s a service industry so more care should be taken with people’s complaints…it’s their profit after all when people leave..Just treat peeps with mutual respect – it goes a long way..Laters…

Same old story at Gala Bingo You win at first, then nothing. I had the foresight to bank straight away so ended up in pocket, although not by very much. Also the “same names always winning” is a popular theme here, especially in the newbie room. The CHs seem ok, but overall I would not recommend.

Really bad time at Gala Bingo. The slots on this site are the worst I have ever played; put it this way, I spent £400 to finally get a bonus and thought I’d get some back and won £7.20!!! Absolute shocker, unfortunately for me I thought if I keep going it has to pay. £1200 later I had nothing and my biggest win was £25. Please hear this warning and stay away from the site!!
I have even reported this to gaming commission, disgusted with myself as much as the site.

Do you really need to have anyone tell you how mad you were…?

Never spend more than you can afford to lose. Throwing good money away like this is not good news for anyone.

All sites have to be regulated and have verified systems for making sure minimum payout levels are maintained. That does not mean to say that anyone putting in £1000 has to win 73% of that back, or whatever the setting is. You can, as you found out, lose big amounts without winning much back.

Slap yourself for being silly, but I doubt you’ll get any joy from the gaming commission – Gala are registered in Gibraltar !

Disgusted by the Gala Bingo decision to move to the vf network..what made gala great was its originality, and that it was not linked to other sites.
Even there Vegas section has disappeared..all the favourite slots have been replaced.
After all the hype I expected something different..but it is now just another vf site..with linked games to many other sites..constant same winners, and only subtle differences in the layout.

Gala has sold out all its loyal essence Gala online bingo exists in name it has been taken over by the vf network who already have the monopoly.

They didn’t even try to cushion the blow by giving their existing players a bingo bonus as most sites would.

Shame on you will lose many many players over this decision to sell out to vf.

Gala Bingo was such a fab site, although I didn’t play on it has much as I do others, but after playing on the Gala site on the first night of the change over to Virtue Fusion I wouldn’t touch this site again. The first five games I had, saw the same winners and continued to the last of my 10 games. The site is not the same and there didn’t seem to be a lot of players. I think Gala are going to be very sorry and in my opinion now just another soupped up Virtue Fusion site, which i think a few other sites have pulled away from.

Just hope all their regulars enjoy the new layout. I am sure if you haven’t played Lucky Numbers before you will enjoy it.

I joined up with Gala Bingo in February because of the great 400% welcome bonus offer, I deposited £20 and 3 days later had no bonus, I sent and email and was then given a bonus of £10. i sent a further 5 emails and then called (which took forever as always engaged) I finally got my full bonus. Then I recommended a friend but again never got my £20 bonus again it took 2 emails but I finally got it. After this I decided never use again but I was lured again by an email offering 50% reload bonus. I deposited £20 using the code and guess what NO BONUS!!! I called and this time they read to me the tiny writing in the terms and conditions. You have to spend the WHOLE of your bonus on bingo tickets to get the bonus. Well by then I had already spent £10 on slots….I closed my account!!!!

I am loving Gala Bingo. There is such a variety of bingo games and side games. I usually start off by playing the penny or 2 penny bingo, then if I win I progress into the 5p or 10p rooms. I have won most times I have deposited, even if I have only won £8 I feel grateful as I can play again for a few hours (yes, a few hours), my money always seems to last longer at Gala than any of the other sites I have played on. The players are mostly friendly and I have had such a laugh with some other players, and yes, we do moan when we don’t win, but it is moaning in a funny way, not a nasty way. There has only been one evening when I have seen the repeat winners syndrome, but I would presume the players were maxing out on tickets. The withdrawels are processed fast and I have had my winnings in my bank within 48 hours. The slots have their good days and their bad days. Gala has a very good welcoming bonus and the bonus’s are followed up on a regular basis (not the full amount as you receive for the welcome bonus, but a few free fivers here and there etc). Thank you Gala Bingo for restoring my faith in online gaming. xxx

Gala Bingo is my favourite site. They often have re-load bonus offers and you can deposit as little as £5.

There are lots of bingo rooms to play in, and there is plenty of choice ranging on how much you want to pay for your tickets (which in some rooms are only 1p).

The slots are good also, and again, you can play from 1p per line (which is great for me as some other sites you have to start off at about £2 per spin).

I have had a few little wins on bingo and on the slots. I have not won anything major “yet”. I was able to withdraw my winnings and received them in my bank within 3 working days.

The players have all been friendly and chatty and the hosts are good too and provide plenty of side games.

The site is easy to navigate around and so far I have encountered no problems.

Well Done Gala!!!
