Gala’s main casino is hosted on the Playtech platform which gives you access to a number of state-of-the-art games including slots, blackjack, roulette, video poker and more. However, they’ve since added a separate Slot sand Game section to add to the existing range with titles from IGT, Quickspin, Blueprint Gaming and more.
From the main Playtech site we’d recommend kicking off with some of the bigger, more complex games. If you want a shot at one of their big progressive jackpots that used to mean playing Marvel slots almost exclusively, though that’s now longer the case.
You can now enjoy the chance to win huge progressive prizes on the Age of Gods series – a crop of four big-budget titles loosely-themed around various Greek deities that seem poised to supplant the Marvel slots. These games come with all manner of free spin and wild options and the series has grown already since its recent launch with four games now on offer:
You can now play Goddess of Wisdom along with the original three games, and a session on each in turn will really help you flex your gaming muscles – and it’s possible to make some huge line wins and retire early without even needing to tip the progressive jackpot, though bear in mind that the large bet sizes you’ll need to make decent line wins will be watched carefully by Playtech’s software, which is designed to bias progressive prize reward to higher-spending players.
Moving on, you can’t come here and not play at least a few of Playtech’s branded games. Gladiator was based on the 2000 movie starring Russell Crowe, and despite Crowe not appearing on the reels due to licencing restrictions the game brings the movie to life in all its glory with every spin – and it proved so popular that Playtech decided to make a progressive jackpot version of it with over £1 million on offer at the time of writing.
Jekyll and Hyde is the best Victorian horror-inspired slot on the web, the Pink Panther is as fiendishly clever as its namesake and The Mummy has a suitably labyrinthine plot that’ll have you scratching your head as a whole evening flies by in what seems like just half an hour.
Do not, however, miss the chance to Play Everybody’s Jackpot under any circumstances. We’ve been a fan of this ingenious, public-spirited slot for a long time.
It uses a TV gameshow theme with glamorous presenters fronting the show which suits the overall theming of the game – that of a community progressive jackpot. Just as everyone on a TV gameshow gets to have a good time as well as the overall winner, when somebody lands the progressive jackpot on this game they get to keep 70% of it. Obviously that’s still likely to be a life-changing amount of cash, but the other 30 percent is split into two:
Half of this is split evenly among qualifying players – that’s players who’ve wagered £40 or more on Everybody’s Jackpot in the last 24 hours – and the rest is split proportionately among players in line with how much they’ve been wagering.
This is about as equitable as you can get, and with top jackpot prizes that run into 6 figures it’s easy to see why this game is so popular. There’s also a free spin feature triggered by landing 3 scatter symbols as well as plenty of line wins on offer, so what are you waiting for? How many times have you seen a major progressive jackpot winner on a game you like to play and felt you ought to share in their success as you contributed so much toward the pot yourself? Well now you can.
It’s unlikely you’ll ever tire of the core Playtech area of Gala Casino, but it’s well worth playing in the Slots and Games area as well. This is where you’ll find the core IGT games that you’ll be familiar with if you’ve played casino floors in Vegas or similar big name resorts.
Rainbow Riches will be well-known to most with its pub fruit-style trail bonus and fortune wheel bonus, though you may be unaware that this game comes in several formats including the excellent Pick N’ Mix version, which lets you choose which features you want to play rather than the game software deciding for you. It’s a simple idea but like lots of things pioneered by IGT it’s incredibly effective.
There have been a number of Michael Jackson land slots launched over the years, but Bally Technologies’ online version trumps the lot; alternatively for an equally legendary but very different icon the WMS Bruce Lee game is on offer, with its patented Moneyburst feature ensuring there’s never a dull moment.
When you click on Gala’s Macau channel don’t expect a whole new set of games – what they’ve done here is made a new channel to showcase all their existing Chinese and Oriental-themed slots in one place. This is great news for Chinese expats and admirers of this particular genre in equal measure, and you can currently choose from Lucky Town, 88 Fortunes, Fortune Dragons, Magical Stacks, Say Ni Hao and Fortune Dragons Fun Drops.
Having the Macau area is a particularly clever move on Gala’s part as they also use Playtech for their live casino games, and Playtech are the only live streaming service around that use both European and Asian dealers – so you can enjoy a true Macau experience with the kind of croupiers you’d get in a real Hong Kong casino.
Gala Casino works with both Android and Apple phones and tablets, using all major browsers.
In addition to the Macau live games there are further games in both Asian and European form in the main Live Casino area, with European and French Roulette on offer for superior expected returns and a house edge of just 1.35%; there’s also Blackjack, Baccarat, Casino Hold ‘Em for those who enjoy a community card experience without the risks associated with multiplayer poker – and there’s also Sic Bo if you fancy playing the world’s most popular dice game.
This fascinating game has been around for centuries and is a great way to enjoy live dice. It’s far easier to learn than Craps and doesn’t require three or more staff members per table, so it works well online and is consequently worth a look.

If you do lose connection in the middle of a game, don't worry. In most cases, all you need to do is log out and in again to your Gala Casino account - then load the game again. Your game will launch in the place you left it, and you'll be prompted to complete the game round and continue playing as normal.

If you are using a mobile device, it is advisable that you end the multi-tasking on your phone.

Deleting the app and re-installing it can also help to resolve any issues that you are experiencing.
In the unlikely event that, after trying these steps, you cannot complete your game round, please contact our helpful Customer Support team for further assistance.
