New to Gala Bingo?

For all you bingo newbies we've put together a short video
to help guide you through the basics of how to play bingo.



Hello, and welcome to Gala Bingo clubs. If you’re new to bingo, or are just looking for a little refresher, then you’ve come to the right place. On this page, you’ll discover how to get the most from your visit to your club of choice.

In our “New to Bingo” section, you’ll find a great selection of help guides to get you started. This is where you can learn how to play the main event, first chance, last chance, and party Xtra games. Our short video tutorials are designed to introduce you to the basics of bingo. Get to grips with the bingo books and tickets and the different ways to play; either using the traditional paper books and markers or with our electronic terminals.

Our electronic terminals are particularly good for beginners as they feature an autoplay setting. Simply switch on, sit back, relax, and watch the game unfold without missing a single number. This also comes in handy if you’re taking a break to enjoy a bite to eat from our delicious new menu.

When you arrive at your club, one of our friendly members of staff will be on hand to help you decide on the best ticket package for you on that day. Once you’re all kitted up, settle down, get comfortable, and prepare to play some bingo. The Presenter will announce the start of the game, tell you the colour of the ticker that you’re playing, and what you’re playing for; line, two lines or a full house.

If you win, make sure you fill your lungs, put your hand in the air, and give The Presenter a nice big shout. Anything will do; “yes!”, “bingo!” and “here!” all work.

Whether you’re learning the ropes, or just refreshing your bingo knowledge, there’s always someone on hand to help. Here at Gala we’re a friendly bunch and our staff are always close by and happy to answer any questions or queries that you may have.

So, find your nearest club and play your way with Gala Bingo.
