Gala Bingo Review 2018

Gala Bingo

This is one of the top online bingo rooms, not only the United Kingdom but also the world as it has so many customers. The details of this bingo has been summarised in the subsequent subtopics.

Promotions and bonuses

There are uncountable promotions that are currently active in the gala bingo website. They include the following: Deposit lottery, win-a-spin, welcome offer bingo, win every day, and newbie free tickets.
Welcome offer bingo ensures that a newly registered member is awarded €30 as soon as that member uses €10 on the first bingo game. On the other hand, deposit lottery gives the players a chance to win €500 every day once they make their first deposit of €20.

All these promotions have their own different terms and conditions. Players are urged to closely take a look at those T&Cs first before accepting the offer.

About Gala bingo

This bingo is owned by the Coral Group Trading Limited. It first came into existence back in 2006 and ever since that time, it has gone ahead to prove itself to the rest of the world that it is really a great bingo site that one can trust at all the time.

It relies on Playtech Bingo to get a huge supply of software games from them which its customers can choose from.

Though it has so many records of its customers in the database, it is, however, unable to get customers from some parts of the world. This is due to the restrictions that some countries have set in place in order to prevent online gambling from taking place. The list of the countries that have these restrictions is long. But, those that permit the services of Gala bingo are the likes of the United Kingdom, Argentina, New Zealand, Ukraine, Sweden, Germany and some few.
Since the headquarters of Gala bingo is situated at Gibraltar, it means that it has to hold a license from the government of Gibraltar and at the same time is regulated by the Gibraltar Gambling Commissioner. It is also licensed and regulated by the United Kingdom Gambling Commission.

Gala bingo games

Here, the bingo games have been grouped in accordingly. There are some that fall into the category of 90-ball bingo, while others fall into the categories of 75-ball bingo, 80-ball bingo, specials, 40-ball bingo, and 50-ball bingo. For instance, Coronation Street bingo, breakfast club, the chase bingo, and deal or no deal(DOND) bingo are examples of the 90-ball bingo games. Others are Interstate 75, DOND bingo 75, 1980, Big banker bingo, Rainbow riches bingo, and coconut island.

Apart from bingo games, Gala bingo also has slot machines or casino games. A few of these games are Balloonies farm, golden jungle, WOZ road to the emerald city, king of Atlantis, rainbow riches pick n mix, and legends of the pharaohs.

Safety and security

All the players who have registered or have intentions of registering with Gala bingo have nothing to worry about when it comes to the security of the data when they are surfing. Gala bingo has put in place some security measures that help protect the sensitive data of its customers from being accessed by any unauthorised people or third parties. It had to incorporate the 128-bit encryption key that encrypts all the information that is sent via the insecure internet. This technology has really helped prevent so many online or cyber-attacks from happening.

Supported currencies, fairness, and the payment methods

As a large online bingo room, Gala bingo took an initiative to collaborate with some trusted online and offline payment gateways in order to facilitate any payment requests that are to be done by the users/players. Such gateways are Maestro, Neteller, Ecopayz, ClickandBuy, PayPal, Skrill, Visa, Mastercard, and Wire or Bank Transfer.

E-wallets i.e. Skrill, Neteller, and Paypal, take only a couple of minutes to process any deposit requests by the customers. Bank Transfer does take a little bit longer to process the same requests. It takes approximately 2 to 5 working days to do that. Also, of importance to note, is the fact that all of these methods have limits when it comes to withdrawals or deposits being made by them. Some of them allow huge withdrawals or deposits to be made into and out of the players’ accounts. Others do not do that. For instance, is a case in which Bank transfer offers a great choice to those gamblers who intend to make huge payments. Those who prefer to withdraw little amount say something less than €50,000, they can either choose to go with Skrill, Neteller, Visa, MasterCard, or PayPal since all of them do support withdrawals of up to that figure.

Thus, anyone who intends to make a deposit for the first time after the registration is complete has to look into these factors very carefully as it may inconvenience them in one way or another.
Unfortunately, there are only two types of currencies that are accepted on this website. They are the Great Britain Sterling pounds and the Euros only. Thus, a player should consider changing the currencies he/she has to either of these two accepted currencies.
There is a third-party company that ensures that Gala bingo does its work in fairness to all. The firm is Virtue Fusion bingo network which has a Random Number Generator (RNG) that generates bingo outcomes.

Mobile bingo games

For those players who do not have devices such as PCs or iMacs, they should not worry their selves so much since they can still download the Gala mobile app into their Android or iOS devices. This is one advantage that Gala bingo has over the others.

Customer service

Gala bingo provides its customers with 24/7 customer support services. It is a feature that has really bolstered Gala’s ratings for the past few years. Players can get in touch with them by sending an email, through live chats, or by making a phone call to them to find solutions to the issues which they experience with either payments or many other issues.
