Gala Bingo Review

Gala Bingo is one of the biggest and most well known bingo and gaming organisations, so with such a great pedigree one might expect them to have a better than average online bingo site, and this expectation is certainly met. Gala Bingo is owned by the Gala Coral Group which has fingers in many gambling pies such as high street bookmakers, casinos and Eurobet in Italy. The fact that bingo and gambling is the modus operandi of Gala Bingo and the parent company means that they are totally in tune with what players are looking for in an online bingo site and as such there is a simple, no nonsense, effortless approach to the bingo experience.

This provides a great deal of comfort to new players who are worried about possibly feeling out of their depth when playing the first time at an online bingo site. Another aspect that is very comforting is that with such a well known name, players can feel assured that they are dealing with a high street name that is both well recognised and well respected. According to their online bingo site, Gala claim they have over 5 million bingo members and let’s face it 5 million bingo players can’t possibly be wrong!

Lots of Choice at Gala Bingo

Gala Bingo has recently had a bit of a facelift, and if you are a player who hasn’t visited for a while then it is well worth a revisit as you are bound to be impressed, for new players the first experience will certainly be an equally impressive one. On landing at the home page, Gala Bingo feature the amazing statistic that there is a winner every second, and to prove the fact this statistic is true they have a rolling update at the bottom of the page naming winners and a stop watch which shows five new winners every five seconds. The remainder of the home page is well sign posted with links at the top of the screen to bingo, slots, games, roulette, lotto and Gala TV. Then on the left hand side there is tabs for all the essential areas that players might want to access simply, so there is at tab for promotional information, a tab to details of how to join, games, chat, contact details etc. There are a few banners which feature the latest must play promotions as well as a useful Gala high street club finder section and details of the featured charity that Gala Bingo supports – Sue Ryder Care.

Once you have decided which bingo games that you would like to play, and they do have a fair selection to choose from ranging from 75 ball, 80 ball and 90 ball bingo, then it is just down to how much cash you want to part with. Games start at just 1p (penny bingo) up to about 50p for some of the Windicate games. The Windicate games bring the community spirit well and truly to the fore, as players can invite as many as five friends to be their Windicate partners. If one in the group wins a full house each Windicate member will receive 50p. Another exciting aspect is that players can join up to five Windicate groups as long as they are invited by a member, and the same winning criteria is applicable for each Windicate group that players are in.

More than just Bingo

If you prefer to dabble in the side games whilst you play bingo rather than indulge in just the chat then there is a huge selection to take your fancy, everything from casino, slots to scratchcards as well as the more unusual Toptrumps and number games with our favourite Deal or No Deal game. For online bingo players who want to experience the live bingo hall experience they will be pleased to know that the online Gala Bingo site also features the Gala TV service, this can also be accessed on Sky channel 861 and Freesat channel 861. Gala TV has all the benefits of online bingo but with live callers.

Gala Bingo seems to have raised the bar for other online bingo sites to try to reach, as they certainly bring a lot of new, fresh and innovative ideas. One of the other options that the Clearly Bingo team think is a great is the opportunity to place a bet on the bingo flutter game. This is a lottery style game that runs in tandem with a bingo game being played, to take part a player will need to select their choice of numbers that they feel will be called, and as in the lottery a player will then set a wager sum. It is hoped that these numbers will then appear in the first 15 numbers that are called, a prize will then be calculated dependant on the wager that the player has made and should the numbers match in the game they will then win that prize. It’s worth noting that this can only be activated if a player has active tickets in a game being played.

Players new and old will find the Gala Bingo experience an exciting one, the trouble with playing some other lesser known sites after Gala Bingo however is that maybe they just will no longer cut the mustard!
