Buzz Bingo is the new name for the old retail clubs of Gala Bingo. In 2015 Caledonia Investments acquired the Gala Bingo retail division, and part of the plan was to rebrand the land-based bingo clubs.
It started happening in May 2019, and now many of the clubs sport the new Buzz Bingo branding.

Buzz Bingo Welcome Offer
The welcome offer from Buzz Bingo is ‘Deposit £10 and get
Terms & Conditions
T&C’s are “New customers only. Bonus is not withdrawable. Deposit & spend £10 on Bingo get £20 online & £10 retail Bingo bonus. Retail £10 for the main session only. £5 min withdrawal on winnings.”
Registration to the site was pretty easy and we were surprised to find that Buzz Bingo has opted for the same software as Gala Bingo, the Playtech / Virtue Fusion software.
It means that, except for the logo and colour scheme, using the new site was pretty much the same as visiting Gala Bingo online.
There are a couple of rooms that are different, the standalone rooms for Buzz like Buzz Bingo Blast for example, but all in all the gaming experience is the same. You’ll even find yourself competing with Gala players in the rooms!
Free Spins Terms & Conditions
As well as the welcome bonus offers, currently you are being offered ten bonus spins on the progressive jackpot game, Jackpot Giant. However, it is worth noting the T&C’s as shown below – that you cannot win the progressive jackpot using the bonus spins.
T&C’s are “New customers only. Deposit and spend £10 on bingo. 10 BONUS Spins can only be used on Jackpot Giant. 1 x spin = 20p (20 lines x 1p). The jackpot cannot be won when using free spins. Winnings paid in cash. £5 minimum withdrawal on winnings.”
We expected more, something different, from Buzz Bingo but at this point, it seems that they are copying the Gala Bingo template
Hopefully, in time they will see the advantage of creating a new bingo identity and try to create a buzz.
