Gala Bingo Moves to Entain Platform

Gala Bingo used to be powered by Playtech’s Virtue Fusion bingo software, but after a recent site update, things seem to have changed. There are now Entain-driven bingo rooms instead of Playtech’s Deal or No Deal, Fluffy Favourites and Rainbow Riches Bingo.

After announcing that the site would be down for maintenance on the morning of Thursday, 22nd July 2021, members of Gala Bingo patiently waited to log back in and play in their favourite bingo rooms.

While the downtime took longer than expected, the site was back up and running by midday with the team’s social media team apologising for “any inconvenience caused” on its Facebook page.

The aforementioned post quickly clocked up scores of comments from players who were not happy with the new layout and the apparent loss of some of their favourite bingo rooms. Some players also pointed out that some of the jackpots seem to have disappeared along with loyalty-based games and promotions like Roy’s Rolls and Win a Spin.

Why have things changed?

Although it may take Gala Bingo players time to adjust to the new format of the site and its bingo offerings, it makes sense that the operator has chosen to change platforms to its in-house solution. Entain bingo software is already in use at some of the operator’s other popular brands including Foxy Bingo and Ladbrokes Bingo.

What games are available now?

Entain’s own versions of Deal or No Deal 90, Deal or No Deal 75 and Fluffy Favourites Bingo have replaced the Playtech versions, so all is not lost in that respect. You can find out more about these Entain games in our game reviews section.

Many of the standalone rooms remain unchanged too, including Rush, Main Event, Bingo Beats – Chakra, Bingo Beats – Love, Rush, City and Metropolis.

The Coronation Street Bingo room which boasts an exclusive Golden Cobbles Jackpot also seems to be sticking around, possibly due to the fact that the game is licensed by ITV Broadcasting as part of the show’s sponsorship deal with Gala.

Gala Bingo has also introduced some additional side games which are exclusive to Entain sites. They include several slot games such as Scarab Kingdom, Thai Flower Megaways and Tiki Fruits Totem Frenzy.
