Since then the BingoGala club has acquired more than five million members, many of them also visit the real live bingo halls owned by the group.
The Gala Bingo website is very dynamic. Upon the very first visit, right at the home page, you can see the current status of the different jackpots, latest winners and monthly promotions. All of those are presented in a convenient way to ensure you don’t miss the action you are looking for. Joining the site is a fast and easy process. Gala Bingo requires aspiring players to provide the following details: first and surname, date of birth, current address and email address, a valid phone number and a payment method. You will also have to choose a security question and answer, which will be used in case you forget your password. At the moment the only available account currency is in GBP to ensure all players are playing in the same currency. If you deposit to your BingoGala account in any other currency (USD, Euro etc) the Gala Bingo system will automatically convert your deposit to GBP. Upon the last step of registration you will be required to agree to the terms and conditions. It is important to read the Gala Bingo T&Cs before confirming, you need to know what you are agreeing to!
If you are having any trouble registering or login into the system, GalaBingo has a support team ready for you. You can contact the GalaBingo support team via email, telephone (call-free) or fax. Other available and more convenient options are callback – where you simply leave your phone number to the operator and one of the GalaBingo support team representatives calls you back, or you can also leave an e-message using the GalaBingo software. Of course, the last option is only valid for players who are already logged into the system.
The GalaBingo system is very user friendly, you don’t need to be a computer wise to figure it out. The software is flash based. Your account and the actual games open in two separate windows, and if you choose to play any of the side games such as slots, keno, video poker, lotto or roulette, these games will open in an additional third window. In addition to the side games mentioned above, BingoGala also offers a few games based on television quiz shows such as Deal or No Deal, The Price is Right or TopTrumps.
The balance in your account window will update simultaneously while you play. GalaBingo offers three types of bingo games: 90 balls bingo, which is the UK version of the game, 75 balls bingo, which is the American version of the game, and a unique 80 balls bingo, which is a game style that originated in Scandinavia. There is also a room available for Spanish speakers, where both the chat and software are in spanish. For each of the different game types the system will open and close rooms according to the number of players online, thus ensuring no room is ever too crowded or too empty, that way the odds of winning are always kept on a reasonable level and the game pots are set at a not too low minimal amount. The is one of the reasons BingoGala is so popular among bingo players.
On the BingoGala website you will find a full rooms schedule with different times of day and the games played. While promotions vary and change on a weekly and monthly basis, the daily and weekly schedules are very seldom changed. BingoGala offers BOGOF games – Buy One Get One Free, as well as happy hours with a special ticket price, guaranteed jackpot games, and games where the pot is split between 5 players equally instead of the the regular 3 way split.
