Too often, entering an online casino can be daunting – especially for those not familiar with them. Screens full of numbers, text, and flashing pound signs can bombard you until you're not sure quite where you are, what time it is, who you are, or what you're supposed to be doing.

Gala Casino tries to be different by tweaking a couple of aspects of its site, as well as making sure the basics are in place. When you open a new game, for example, it appears in an overlay so that it's easy to navigate from game to game. Without doubt, though, the most noteworthy components of the site are the Live Dealer Casino games. The most obvious USP of this feature is that you are interacting with a live dealer in real time by using the live video streaming facility. This enhances your online gambling experience, making it all the more real. "Another major diversion from regular online play is that other players around the table are also playing live," a Gala Casino representative explains. "You can even contact each other and the dealer via the live messaging system."

The Welcome Bonuses Gala Casino offers new players represent an extra incentive / motivation to join the site, too.

"New players receive a 100 per cent deposit match on their first deposit up to £200," the Gala Casino rep says. "This is because when new players are picking a site, the welcome bonus may well be the factor that decides which site they join."

Promotions are also in place for current players, mind, including a 50 per cent match of up to £50 on your second deposit. And if you recommend a friend, you collect a £25 bonus and your friend receives £20.

Putting bonuses and promotions to one side for a moment, the game themselves are designed to suit a variety of skill levels. This ensures no one feels excluded or out of their depth.

"Some games do take some practising to get used to," the Gala Casino representative explains. "Craps and Stud poker, for instance."

"There are guides to help new players learn these games, though, and other games, like the instant win games, don't take much time to learn at all. The Cleopatra slots is one of the most popular games on the site, for example, and is enjoyed by players of all skill levels."

The site hasn't forgotten the most important element of an online casino, however - the prizes. A main prize of £1,300,000 is up for grabs on the Chest of Plenty slot game, and the latest jackpots for many of the games are constantly updated in a live news banner.
