Last update: 23rd July 2021
Gala Bingo moved off the Virtue Fusion bingo platform in July 2021. It has some of the same rooms as other Entain sites and some different ones, including recreations of Gala exclusive games like Bingo Beats and Coronation Street Bingo.
The same week as the Gala move, Entain launched their own 75 and 90 ball versions of the classic Deal or No Deal Bingo game which is one of the most popular of the Virtue Fusion specials. This means that the only specials that were lost in the transition were Rainbow Riches Bingo and Housey.
The Gala player base is absolutely huge and presumably they can still retain enough liquidity to keep the rooms busy and lively and prize money attractive even without the Virtue Fusion network big money games and promotions and even if some players ragequit (and some are bound to as some people just don’t like change). The success of the Coral Bingo move 18 months earlier is also a positive sign – and let’s face it, the Virtue Fusion incarnation of Gala was SO busy that wins were few and far between (although substantial when they did come). The Entain version combines Gala only rooms with Entain networked rooms which have hundreds of players rather than the thousands of Virtue Fusion.
Gala’s mobile service has won awards and comes with apps to make login hassle free. The app was updated the day of the move but one problem that has been remarked upon is that slot games are not accessible from the mobile bingo rooms.
Gala have long had a reputation for looking after their customers and are considered to have one of the best player reward schemes out there. They regularly run player promotions and some of these have been in aid of charities. One thing that Gala are really good at is thinking up promotions which offer prizes that money can’t buy – from tickets to the Gala VIP Christmas party to a guest appearance on Emmerdale for the winner’s pet.
Where Gala – and other Entain sites – really excel is not at bingo, but in the size and variety of the slot games selection; there’s pretty well everything you could possibly want incuding many exclusives and huge progressive jackpots.
Access to 4 hours of free bingo a day in the Newbie Room for 3 days after registration (bingo bonus prizes)
Entain’s Responsible Gambling section is one of the most helpful and comprehensive there is; it includes additional tools such as Curfew (block deposits at specified times and/or on specified days of the week), loss limits and stake limits (set maximum spin value).
