Popular Games

The Gala Casinos offer all of the standard games you’d expect to find in a land-based casino. One of the special services offered is the Casino Magic Zone where you can learn to play the most popular casino games with the help of the dealer, in a fun, laid back atmosphere. Other popular areas include the Poker Magic Zone (for live poker action), the Club Lounge (where you can watch live sports or place electronic roulette bets), and the Jackpot Zone (where you can play the jackpot slot machines or other electronic games).

Known For

While smoking is not allowed on the casino floor, many of the Gala Casinos offer an Air Lounge balcony - i.e. an open air area where you can go to get some fresh air and/or smoke (as contrary as that sounds) without leaving the casino. Air Lounges can be found in the Edinburgh, Glasgow, Liverpool, and London locations (as well as many more).  


Offering casino visitors the opportunity to “Eat, Drink & Play,” each Gala Casino has numerous restaurants and bars on premise. Enjoy a delicious, world-class steak at the Chargrill restaurant, a light snack from the Valet Menu, or a “hot” drink at 18° Below Ice Bar.
