Look-up Gala in the dictionary and it will tell you it’s a social occasion with special entertainment – so let’s see if the Gala Casino is as sociable and entertaining as the name suggests.
Gala started life as a Bingo company in 1991, and its journey as a casino operator began in 2000 when it acquired the Hilton Group’s 26 Casinos. In 2005, the company then merged with Coral Eurobet, a move which saw it become one of the UK’s Top 100 companies. The Gala Casino then launched in 2008, before both GalaCasino.com and GalaBingo.com were relaunched in 2011 under the banner of Gibraltar based Gala Interactive.
As a subsidiary of the Gala Coral group, the third largest gaming firm in the UK, Gala Casino head-hunted an experienced team of industry veterans from other major gaming companies, a move which led to the company incorporating the industry leading Play Tech platform.
This move allowed them to build a slot portfolio of over 300 games from around a dozen software providers, including many of the Marvel Comic Book slots that offer players the chance to win Linked Progressive Jackpots, and many other slots that are derived from Hollywood Blockbuster Films including Rocky and Gladiator. Jackpot players will love the chance to win jackpots in excess of £1 Million, whilst Gala also offers players a choice of exclusive slots such as Firestar.
If you love your live-action, then you can look forward to playing at Gala’s Macau Live-Casino, and enjoy playing other live-casino games which include Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and Hold’em, as well as games such as Bruce Lee and Thai Flower.
The Gala Welcome
Gala say becoming a new member is as easy as 1-2-3, and by that they mean you can enjoy 3 consecutive deposit bonuses. The first bonus is especially generous, and any deposit of between £10 and £400 will be matched with a 100% bonus. Wagering requirements are also reasonably generous at 20x your deposit and bonus, with a middle-of-the-road 14 days to carry-out all wagering requirements prior to any withdrawals. You can then enjoy a 50% deposit bonus of up to £100 on both your second and third deposits.
Every Day Is A Gala
Part of the social aspect at Gala Casino comes from the potential to enjoy weekly promotions, Comp Points, and VIP Benefits. You can look forward to 25% Extra Tuesdays, Magic Trick Picks 25% Cashback, 25% Weekend Reloads, and Golden Cards which are worth £100.
Meanwhile, every £10 of game-play you enjoy will also earn you 1 Comp Point, and every 100 Comp Points will earn you £1 in cash.
VIP’s will also receive extra benefits such as additional deposit bonuses, double-up bonuses, cashback, and VIP Contact.
Slot enthusiasts are in for a treat at Gala, and there are plenty of software providers to choose from, including Gala’s exclusive slots such as The Magician Trick Picks which provides a magical experience including magician’s hats and wands, as well as Crazy Pays, the Tricks Picks Bonus, and the High-Roller Feature.
Meanwhile, top games include Netent’s extremely popular Gonzo’s Quest which will transport you on a journey to find a lost city of gold and all the riches it contains. And, talking of riches, you can also enjoy the ever-popular Rainbow Riches from Barcrest that will whisk you over the rainbow to a land of leprechauns, Wishing Well Bonuses, and Pots of Gold Features.
As Play Tech is such a big part of Gala Casino, Marvel Comic Book fans can also revel in the chance to win one of the Marvel Linked Progressive Jackpots, in games such as Iron Man 2 and the Incredible Hulk.
Other fun themes include TV Shows such as Corrie, or Emmerdale’s Country Capers, whilst if you like your TV Shows and your slots a little quirkier you can play Little Britain.
However, if you want a personal recommendation, then Nordic Heroes from IGT is well worth a few spins. Choose between becoming two heroes, then embark on a journey that will take you through dangerous countryside in which you can fight some seriously scary monsters as you bid to try and reach the final level and the ultimate bonus game.
Gala On The Go
If you’re an Android phone or tablet owner you can enjoy playing at Gala’s specially devised Android Mobile Casino, whilst there’s also an iPad Casino, and an iPhone Casino – all of which allow players to play slots, blackjack, roulette, casino games, and live-casino action just about whenever and wherever you feel like it.
Live-chat and email contact options are available, though it isn’t something Gala seem to pride themselves on. The Help Centre isn’t overly forthcoming when it comes to providing contact details, and there’s no helpful live-chat short-cut.
Give Gala A Go
Most players will love the fact that the Gala Casino comes with the backing of the globally renowned Gala Coral Group, but the Casino certainly doesn’t just expect players to play there because of it. The Deposit Bonuses on offer are very generous, and wagering requirements perfectly acceptable considering the size of the welcome bonus. Besides the slightly hard to find contact details, the casino also lives-up to its name’s suggestion that it is sociable and entertaining – and it looks well worth becoming a member.
