Gala Bingo Say TGIF!

Thursday, Mar. 22nd 2018 7:54 AM

Friday tomorrow, the last before payday for many, so the chances are you won’t be planning a night out with friends this week. A cheap night in before the wages hit the bank is what’s in order and at Gala Bingo you could get involved in their Thank Gala It’s Friday promotion. If you’ve been playing at the site during the week, and have opted in to join the TGIF fun, chances are you’ve already earned a few tickets. If not, you can buy them for the special gift games at a cost of 20p each.

Earning tickets is a better option for the regulars at Gala Bingo and six are given for all ten games in the TGIF promotion the moment you opt in and then deposit and spend £20 on bingo tickets.

All Aboard The Gala Bingo Corrie Bus

Saturday, Feb. 10th 2018 7:19 AM

Gala Bingo launched a brand new promotion on 4th February but you haven’t missed out because it continues right through until 4th March. Up for grabs in this latest offer from the popular brand is the chance to win bingo bonuses, access to free bingo sessions and seats on the Corrie Bingo Bus Tour. Land yourself the latter and you’ll be meeting a former Coronation Street star!

Each and every day of the promotion there is a What Do I Win? button available at Gala Bingo, simply click it to view what the prize of the day is. On the day we prepared this content, if we had spent £5 playing Coronation Street Bingo we would have been playing free games in the Margarita Room at 6pm the following day. Additionally our £5 spend would have gotten our name in the hat to win seats on the Corrie Bingo Bus Trip.

Gala Bingo Sponsor Aussie Soaps

Saturday, Aug. 26th 2017 7:45 AM

Neighbours and Home and Away were always a main stay of early evening TV when we were kids. We have fond memories of coming home from college and lolloping in the chair to catch up with the latest happenings with the likes of Harold and Madge and Scott and Charlene. However, both Aussie soap casts have changed since then but they both still remain popular in the UK.

It’s no surprise then to hear that Gala Bingo have just secured a deal with Channel 5 to sponsor both of these Aussie soaps! This means that over the coming weeks, if you watch the shows, then you’ll see the popular online and retail brand in the commercial breaks.

Bingo Side Bets Are Back

Tuesday, Aug. 16th 2016 7:33 AM

In 2011 we saw Side Bets introduced to some of the standalone brands from Cassava. Later, in July 2012, these were added to the Dragonfish networked brands too [read more here]. However, visit any of the brands that once hosted this additional feature, and you’ll not find it available. Even before that, the Parlay Entertainment software offered Bingo Bets.

However, whilst Side Bets and Bingo Bets are now a thing of the past and both Cassava sites and Parlay sites, we have found them at Gala Bingo! Now you have to wonder why they would add this feature when it clearly wasn’t an asset on two other software platforms.

Galalala In The New Gala Bingo Advert

Friday, Nov. 14th 2014 7:44 AM

Gala Bingo has a brand new bingo advert and a brand new hashtag as #Galalala goes live, on your TV screens and on Twitter! The new advert aired for the first time this week and you can watch it below, we love a good old bingo ad and we couldn’t wait to see it!

We love the clever twist turning Gala into Galalala, a bit of marketing genius and the ad features various people, in various surroundings all singing the Galalala song, playing bingo along the way.

Gala Bingo Offer Lotto Betting

Monday, Jun. 2nd 2014 7:31 AM

For a long time now it’s been possible to bet on the outcome of overseas lottery draws. Even before the advent of online gaming, betting shops offered this service, allowing players to participate in any lottery around the world. Of course online bingo players often pay little attention to the sportsbook side, but we do know that bingo players love the lottery, and maybe that’s why Gala Bingo has integrated its lottery betting within its online bingo branch!

Recently Gala Bingo launched their Flutter section, allowing people to access sports betting through the bingo client and we have to admit it’s a very clever move from Gala Bingo. Most people think of sportsbooks as somewhere to bet on horses and football but this doesn’t always have great appeal to many bingo players.

Changes To Bingo Club Parking

Monday, Jan. 27th 2014 12:19 AM

As our readers will know on some occasions I like to visit our local bingo hall, this is the Mecca Bingo hall in York. As it is quite a trek, my friends and I usually travel by car which means using the parking facilities at the club. A recent news article caught my eye in the Scunthorpe Telegraph because it mentioned the parking at a Gala Bingo club and how a player had been fined a massive £85!

Reading the story I couldn’t help but notice the likeness to my most recent visit to the Mecca club in York. Although we don’t go often, previously it had simply been a case of park the car, go into the hall, buy your tickets and play the game. However, my husband had noticed that there were numerous signs in the club advertising the new parking system and how your car registration had to be entered into a keypad as you entered the club.

New Gala Bingo Ad, It Could Be You

Friday, Jun. 21st 2013 7:46 AM

With hundreds of online bingo sites available, the quality of the adverts produced ranges greatly from fantastic and innovative, to cheap and nasty. Last night while settling down for a bit of relaxing television, we saw the brand new Gala Bingo advert and our first impression was how big budget it is!

There’s no doubt that Gala Bingo has spent a lot of money on this advert, reaffirming their place as one of the biggest bingo brands around. However, we do wonder how much of that big budget was spent on the concept, because as soon as we saw the ad, we were reminded of another very famous advert.
