The 2nd deposit bonus is sadly not quite up to the hugely generous standards of the first deposit bonus – in fact, you can get 400% up to £400 if you use the AskGamblers exclusive bonus code available on this site. This time around though the bonus awarded is just 50% up to £100 – that’s a maximum deposit of £200, or a minimum of £10 for a bonus of £5. Unlike a lot of Playtech casinos, all of the bonuses offered by the Gala and Coral casinos are fully cashable, so once you have completed the wagering requirements you are free to withdraw your whole balance.
Speaking of wagering requirements, Gala specify it as 20x the deposit plus bonus amounts, I always find this unnecessarily complicated and confusing though – If you deposit £20 for a £10 bonus, your wagering requirement is £600, or 60x the bonus amount – this same calculation works regardless of the amount you choose to deposit so its clear that this is a reasonably tough bonus to beat, and that makes it tough for me to recommend you make the maximum deposit of £200 with this bonus. I’d be more tempted to make a small or medium sized deposit and just hope for some extended playtime. If you do go for the maximum deposit of £200 then bear in mind the wagering requirements will be really quite large and may take considerable time to complete, especially if you normally make fairly small bets.
Whilst playing with a bonus at Gala you can check your progress through the wagering requirements at any time by clicking on your balance on the main page of the casino. The details shown are very clear and make it easy for all players, even those who are unfamiliar with on-line gaming, to understand where they are with their bonus wagering. It would be nice to see other Playtech casinos follow this lead, some of them don’t have this information visible at all whereas others have it buried inside pages and pages of account details and settings.
