About Gala Bingo
Gala Bingo is one of the longest established online bingo 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.
