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. 

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.

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.

        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 !!

        Clicked on a welcome offer, registered, deposited and began playing. No welcome bonus was paid. Contacted live chat (screenshots and names taken) only to be told it was not a bingo welcome offer I clicked on, despite emailing the advisor screenshots of the page I clicked from which clearly stated bingo bonus.
        Felt conned as I know what I clicked on, the advisor was full of excuses referring me to small print etc. One to avoid.

        Hi. dont bother with gala they are a joke. trust me on this one i have tried to join today and it says that my card had failed. Really dont know why to be honest and the customers service couldnt be bother to sort it - she told me to ring them. Find that not good to be honest.
        When i told her that i was going to join another site she didnt seem bothered at all. Try another bingo i use to play at there club cant even win there, so i dont go any more - stay away from gala.

        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.

        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 :)
        What you see is what you get , plenty of one & two pence games :)
        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:)
