Tea Cup Tournament At Gala Bingo

Tuesday, Jun. 26th 2018 7:17 AM

The nation might not all be engrossed in the World Cup, and we may not all be keen on watching a game where 22 men run around a patch chasing a ball. However, if you’re here reading this article we can presume that you’re not adverse to a game which also uses balls, albeit that they are numbered. Gala Bingo are hosting their own version of the World Cup but it’s called the Tea Cup.

We’re now in Week Two of the Tea Cup tournament at Gala Bingo but you have this and two more weeks to get involved. Each week you have to qualify for the Semi-Final and then during that session on a Friday, you will be able to qualify for the Final on Sunday 15th July. Qualifying games for the Semis take place daily between midday and midnight and tickets cost 10p each.

Gala Bingo launched a brand new promotion on 4th February but you haven’t missed out because it continues right through until 4th March.

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.

Gala Sell All Its Land Based Bingo Halls

Wednesday, Oct. 28th 2015 11:28 AM

Over the years we’ve followed the ebb and flow of the retail industry’s biggest players. There’s been a number of purchases and sales, but this latest move from Gala is possibly one of the biggest we’ve seen here. In one fell swoop Gala has sold its entire portfolio of high-street bingo halls. That’s 130 halls with more than 1.1 million members, a snip at £241m.

The halls were bought by the Caledonia investment group, whom also own stakes in other leisure industry businesses such as Park Holidays. The full details of the sale are here so we won’t go into detail on the background of the story, but look at some of the potential implications and speculate on potential issues.
