Information about the Gala Casino App
The Gala Casino mobile application has a very sleek design, with easily recognisable icons and menus to facilitate navigation around the pages. The portrait layout and the ability to scroll through games quickly on a horizontal axis give the page a professional and ergonomic feel, whilst not providing too much information to overwhelm the user.
The PC based browser version offers over 300 games to choose from, whilst the sister mobile app offers over 75 games with a number incorporating a rolling jackpot (e.g. Captain’s Treasure, Beach Life, Gold Ralley etc.). These games have all been carefully designed to fit neatly onto the screen, with a filter which helps you to find the type of game you are looking for.
Gala Casino offers a downloadable app on the Android platform (.apk) and iOS for use on the iPhone and iPad from iTunes. Blackberry and Windows Phones do not have a specific downloadable application from the App Store, however access to the website is possible through browsers such as Safari, Chrome, Firefox and Opera. The app was found to run very smoothly on the iPhone as well as Android, both in browser version and through the download.
