According to the Gala Spins website, the site is operated by LC International Limited. A quick look at D&B shows that the company is a subsidiary and lists Ladbrokes as its owner. If you know your gambling lineage (which can be as complicated as a Tolkien epic), you’ll know that Ladbrokes is Ladbrokes Coral, which is a subsidiary of Entain.
It means that as well as being a sister site to Gala Bingo, Gala Spins is also a sister site to everything from bwin and Sportingbet to Foxy Bingo and Cheeky Bingo.
The Welcome Offer
Gala Spins offers £20 Bonus Money and 30 Bonus Spins for all new players who join, deposit, and wager at least £10. Once you wager that sum, you’ll be given £20 in bonus credits and will have 7 days to meet a 20x wagering requirement.
30 Bonus Spins will also be added to your account. These spins are limited to the Big Banker slot and have a value of £0.10.
You can claim the bonus under the “My Bonuses” section of your account.
Rather disappointingly, the bonus is not offered to players who use Skrill, Paysafecard, PayPal or a prepaid card. The bonus Terms and Conditions also claim that deposits using Moneybookers are excluded, even though Moneybookers rebranded as Skrill 7 years ago.
Maybe that hints at the age of this bonus. Maybe the editor had the day off.
One of the best features of Gala Spins is something known as “Flash Pots”, which is basically the casino’s take on Daily Drops. It’s what Cheeky Bingo calls “Cheeky’s Jackpots” and Foxy Bingo refers to as “Foxy’s Jackpot”. The name is different but the concept is the same, and what a concept it is.
Visit the Flash Pots page to see a list of jackpots that are about to drop. If you play the games tied to these jackpots, you stand a chance of winning a major portion of the prize pool. If you just miss out but are active when someone else wins, you’ll still walk away with a share.
To qualify, you need to bet at least £0.10 on a participating game. The winner will secure 50% of the spoils while the rest is shared between all active players.
There are three types of jackpot:
- Electric Dreams: Activates between 8 PM and 10 PM every Friday.
- High Voltage: Guaranteed to trigger before it reaches £1,000.
- Thunderbolt: Will trigger before it hits £100 and can activate multiple times a day.
Other promotions are available in the Mission Possible section. You are given a series of challenges to complete and can unlock prizes when you do so.
You’ll begin at the “Initiator” level and if you keep meeting the requirements and advancing through the ranks you’ll eventually make it to the “Ultimate Spinner” level.
Software and Developers
If you have played Foxy Bingo or Cheeky Bingo in the past, you’ll be right at home here as Gala Spins uses the same software and layout.
The content is different, the promotions have been tweaked, and it has been given a premium makeover worthy of the Gala name, but the barebones are the same. And that’s a good thing, as we’re talking about some of the biggest and highest-rated sites in the UK!
Of course, there is one major difference, as Gala Spins is completely devoid of bingo titles. If you want to play the numbers, you’ll need to venture over to Gala Bingo or one of the many other Entain online bingo sites.
It’s all about slots and table games here, and these are provided by some of the biggest names in the business, including:
- Blueprint Gaming
- Scientific Games
- Big Time Gaming
- Yggdrasil Gaming
Slots and Games
Gala Spins is home to many of the UK’s favourite slot games, including the immensely popular Rainbow Riches, the brilliant Golden Ticket, and the iconic Gonzo’s Quest.
You’ll also find slots based on the country’s biggest TV shows, films, and games, such as Top Cat, Beetlejuice, The Goonies, Jumanji, Deal or No Deal, Monopoly, and Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
It’s a varied selection and it promises a little something for everyone.
Megaways in particular is very well represented here. It’s a feature that has never really appealed to me, but I seem to be the exception as it’s huge right now. First created by Big Time Gaming, Megaways was soon licensed to other slot creators and used to enhance classic games while creating new ones.
It increases the number of symbols and rows and completely randomizes these with every spin. The result is a system that could trigger anywhere from a few dozen paylines to over 100,000 paylines with every spin.
If you’re wondering why I’m not a fan, I really don’t know. After writing that description, even I’m questioning my taste!
Depositing and Withdrawing
Scroll to the bottom of the Gala Spins website and you’ll see a list of all accepted payment options, including:
- Apple Pay
- Citadel Instant Banking
- Diners Club
- Bank Transfers
But don’t get excited just yet. Some of these methods are not offered to UK players, others are available only for deposits, and many are excluded from the casino’s Welcome Bonus.
The limits also vary from method to method.
With Visa, for instance, you can deposit just £10. As for ecoPayz (which, rather confusingly, is listed in the Terms and Conditions but not on the homepage) the minimum is a rather specific £18.37.
Most withdrawals are processed in just a few hours and you can withdraw as little as £5. The casino can also process smaller amounts as required, but you’ll need to contact them first and make a direct request.
Gala Spins Review Summary
Gala Spins is nothing new. It borrows many of the same elements from its multiple successful sister sites, gives everything a fresh lick of paint, and adds a few new features. But when the end product is a very impressive online casino with some great jackpots, an enticing Welcome Bonus, and top games, who cares?
I prefer the aesthetic of Gala Spins to its iGaming siblings. It doesn’t have the reputation of Ladbrokes or the bonus variety of Foxy, but it was more than enough to keep me busy for an evening and I will return in the future.
