Gala Mobile Review

by Gambling.com™

Like many of its competitors, Gala has recently made a number of its online services available to players through their smartphones. In the past, Gala Coral Group – one of the biggest names in the UK gambling industry – has impressed with its online site, which is sleekly presented and user-friendly; does its mobile offering deserve similar praise?

Software

As is the case with the regular site, powered by Playtech, Gala Mobile Casino requires no download of a dedicated program to enjoy its games. All games are played via a mini-site that works across almost all smartphones, from Android devices to BlackBerries and iPhones.

There are three ways in which players can access the site: scanning a QR code, texting Gala Casino or requesting a text via the company’s website. Those already registered with the online site can access Gala Mobile with the same details, whilst new users can register quickly enough or test out a few games for free.

User Experience

As you would expect as smartphones gain ever more powerful processors and better visuals all the time, the presentation is more or less as good as it is on a home computer. The design of the interface is nicely worked for a smaller screen, with no clutter and little more than the essentials on every page.

Loading times between games and menu screens will depend on the platform and age of the smartphone in question, but generally the software works smoothly and players will find little issue navigating through the different games.

Game Options and Features

There are over 15 games available on Gala Mobile, including casino classics like roulette and blackjack as well as a number of slots with different themes. There’s more than enough for players to enjoy on the go, although notable omissions – such as Gala’s range of live casino games – means that Gala Mobile doesn’t quite measure up to the website.

Minimum and maximum bets are the same as they are on the regular site (10p - £250), as are the jackpots, while the games all play more or less identically to how they do on a PC or laptop.

Promotions

Players joining Gala for the first time receive the same generous welcome bonus that they’d receive if registering on the main site: the bigger the first deposit, the bigger the bonus.

Registered players will also find a fair few promotions to keep them coming back – Marvel Mondays, for example, reward players of Gala Mobile’s Iron Man 2 with double comp points every Monday.

Gala’s four-tiered loyalty programme also applies, with better rewards obtained the more you stake. One possible criticism is that a number of Gala’s fantastic promotions on its site are unavailable here because the games they’re associated with are not part of the Gala Mobile package.

Support and Banking

The help and support on standby is good, with no obvious holes in the details available in the help pages, plus a dedicated team is reachable around the clock should there be any issues that can’t be resolved by a few clicks of a touchscreen.

Transactions are covered by a high-standard line of anti-fraud controls, so mobile gamers can play safe in the knowledge that their personal details are safe. Players can enjoy the payment services of multiple debit and credit cards as well as e-Wallets and bank transfers.
