When Gala Spins first launched it was basically a slots extension of Gala Bingo. Players from the latter could login and play slots much in the same way that Tombola and Tombola Arcade are connected. However the site and brand have changed considerably over time and Gala Spins is now a brand in it’s own right. This means it no longer shares a wallet with it’s bingo namesake. Players visiting the site will have access to a wide range of popular slots, megaways, slingo and daily drop jackpots. There’s also a £20 welcome bonus plus bonus spins for new depositors.
Gala Spins Welcome Offer
New players joining Gala Spins will receive a £20 bonus plus 30 bonus spins when they register, deposit and spend £10. Wagering terms apply to both bonuses and these are x20 for the main bonus and x10 for any wins generated on the spins. Note that the spins are currently for The Goonies slot game. Other bonuses may get offered by Gala Spins but these do tend to be advertised in emails, so keep an eye on your inbox.
Gala Spins is owned by Entain (GVC) and the website design is therefore very similar to the likes of Foxy Games and Cheeky Bingo. This means you’ll find a good selection of popular slots from top providers including Slingo, Net Entertainment, Playtech, Big Time Gaming, Eyecon Games and Scientific Gaming. Popular titles include Rainbow Riches, Noble Sky, Starburst, Big Banker, The Goonies, Genie Jackpots, Diamond Mine Megaways, Fishin Frenzy and Book Of Dead. Gala Spins also boasts over 30 Megaways slots plus 20 different Slingo titles.
Live Casino & Table Games
Joining the multitude of slots are a selection of scratchcards and live game shows such as Deal Or No Deal the Big Draw, God Of Storms Live Slots, Buffalo Blitz Live, Spin A Win and Adventures Beyond Wonderland. This is great to see as these games do fit in with the ‘Spins’ brand. Note there are no table games, roulette or blackjack options. Gala Spins also have a series of Flash Pots that players can enjoy. These are must drop jackpots such as Thunder Bolt, which must drop before it reaches £100; Electric Dreams that must be won by 9pm on Friday; and High Voltage that must be won before it hits £1000.
Gala Spins Promotions
Gala Spins do have regular player promotions. For example at time of writing they were hosting a Halloween special titled ‘Month Of The Giving Dead’. This free game offers players the chance to win deposit offers, free spins on selected slots, cash and prize draw entries to win £5000 cash. Although it is free to play you do need to be a qualifying player. We expect that similar promotions will run at the site during other times. Other promotions include ‘Quests’ which give you the chance to win rewards for playing selected games and ‘Mission Possible’ which are a series of challenges that again result in player rewards. Check in on Facebook for more offers.
Responsible gambling tools are available at Gala Spins. These include the usual deposit limits, time-out and self exclusion options. Additionally you can set a max stakes limit so you can’t spend more than that amount on a spin. Plus there’s also a curfew period which prevents you from making deposits at chosen times. Self-exclusion periods have a minimum duration of 6 months. The maximum length of the self-exclusion can be set to last up to 5 years. Customer support is available via live chat although there is an FAQ system to wade through first. Gala Spins don’t make it that easy to email them.
The Spin On Gala Spins
In our view Gala Spins has had quite a tough lifespan. It launched as an ‘add-on’ to Gala Bingo which did it a disservice. Now, after a number of revamps, it is a standalone brand and things have improved. GVC have improved the suite of slots and scratchcards on offer – including an excellent section for Megaways games – and we don’t mind too much that casino/live casino are not part of the mix. Game shows could be a welcome addition but are not a necessity. What makes Gala Spins standout from other similar sites are the promotions open to players. Flash Pots, Quests and Mission Impossible give new angles on slots and Slingo play.
