Gale & Martin Casino in a nutshell
Gale & Martin Casino is an online casino that’s operated by Alpha Interactive Solutions NV, a company based in Curaçao. Alpha Interactive Solutions itself is a subsidiary of another company called Ubiquin, based in Cyprus. Alpha Interactive Solutions also owns the online casinos Casino Napoli and Magik Slots. All their casinos run via licences granted by the government of Curaçao.
We’re not really sure whom Gale and/or Martin is/or are, or why they have decided to open an online casino. On the site they are presented as two super heroes, in a ‘Superman’ and ‘Wonder Woman’ style. Let’s hope the pair have brought some super heroic stylings to their online casino offerings. We’re tempted to think there’s some connection to ‘Martingale’ – the popular ‘double your bets’ gambling system.
So, what’s so ‘super’ about Gale & Martin Casino? Will Gale and/or Martin become your new online casino super heroes? Read on to find out …
What’s the look and feel of Gale & Martin Casino?
Gale and Martin do really bring the ‘super hero’ aspect to their site, with plenty of inventive graphics that are big and bold and literally blast their way across your computer (or tablet, or smartphone) screen. It’s a wonderful design full of vibrant colours.
It’s not all just ‘show and no tell’ either. While the functional design of the site is more mundane, it works perfectly well and is extremely responsive.
What games are available at Gale & Martin Casino?
Gale and Martin seem to have worked hard to bring together a very rewarding selection of the top titles from multiple providers. The ‘video slots’ section is the most populated area of this online casino, as you would naturally expect. There are well over FOUR HUNDRED slots available at this site, which really is a huge number. It’s hard to pick out ‘the best’ from such a selection, but if you need somewhere to start then we humbly suggest Starburst, Gonzo’s Quest or Foxin’ Wins.
Casino games are well supported too, with eight versions of roulette, five versions of blackjack, four versions of casino poker, six versions of video poker plus scratch cards and a handful of arcade-style games such as arcade keno.
The live casino here is powered by Extreme Live Gaming and has baccarat, blackjack and roulette.
Software providers here include many real big guns, including NetEnt and NextGen Gaming.
There’s a special mobile-optimised version of this site which is just as delightful as the desktop site, and is easily as colourful.
Live support’s available here at all times, day and night, and when we used it we found the support staff to be excellent.
What promotions are available at Gale & Martin Casino?
Gale & Martin online casino brags that it offers new players a ‘super hero welcome’ – well, let us be the judge of that! The graphics in the bonus section mention ‘Double Comp Points’, ‘Happy Hour’, and ‘Weekend Warriors’, but no mention of a welcome bonus, or free spins.
The mystery is solved if you click on the ‘super hero welcome’ banner – there is indeed a welcome bonus available here, and it’s a bit of a humdinger – a grand total of €3,200 spread over your first four deposits at the casino, as follows:
- 1st deposit: 400% up to €800, bonus code: GALEMARTIN1
- 2nd deposit: 200% up to €800, bonus code: GALEMARTIN2
- 3rd deposit: 200% up to €800, bonus code: GALEMARTIN3
- 4th deposit: 150% up to €800, bonus code: GALEMARTIN4
Let’s have a look though the T&Cs associated with these undoubtedly ‘super hero sized’ welcome bonuses. First up you need to deposit a minimum of €20 each time if you want to receive a bonus. There are wagering requirements attached, as you might expect, but they are very reasonable indeed – a mere twenty times the sum of your deposit and your bonus. Note that for players in Greece and Lebanon these wagering requirements rise to eighty times.
You can only use your bonus money on slots, though, while you are working through your wagering requirements. If you use any of the other games at this site then your bonus and any winnings made from it will be forfeited. The real bad news is that these bonuses are sticky bonuses and are non-redeemable. When you’ve made wagering requirements, you can only withdraw any amount of cash in excess of your original bonus. Anything else is returned to the casino.
Note that you cannot apply for a further bonus until you’ve completed wagering for the one you have running currently and you’ve completed a withdrawal (i.e. your balance is zero).
Let’s now talk about those other offers we noticed. ‘Double Comp Points’ is easy to understand – each month certain games are selected to be extra special. Play these games and you receive twice the number of VIP points you would normally. ‘Happy Hour’ brings you extra special bonus offers on Thursday and Friday evenings, while ‘Weekend Warriors’ offers you twenty percent cash back as bonus money on Saturdays and Sundays.
There’s a VIP scheme here too, although details on the site about it are a little sketchy. VIPs receive weekly bonuses and personal VIP managers. They also receive a one hundred percent deposit bonus option every Tuesday. The offers you receive are at the behest of your VIP manager.
Super heroes usually do their stuff for free, but if you want to play for real money at this casino, the you’re going to have to deposit some of your own! Thankfully, Gale & Martin Casino have plenty of ways by which you can get money into your casino account. These include standard methods such as Visa, MasterCard, Skrill, Neteller and Paysafecard. A handful of alternatives are provided too – POLi, Nordea, CartaSi, PostePay, iDeal, Sofort and GiroPay.
The minimum deposit is €20, and so is the minimum withdrawal (ignore the bit in the general T&Cs that says the minimum withdrawal is €100 as this is a mistake). You cannot withdraw more than €7,000 in any one calendar month.
All deposits are processed immediately. Withdrawals will take around five days, although some methods may be quicker (eWallets) and others slower than that (wire transfers).
The final verdict
So, will Gale and Martin become your new casino super heroes? The chances of this happening do look really good, as the only thing we don’t admire about this super-hero powered casino is the fact that the deposit bonuses are sticky. The design of the site, the number of games available, the payment options … everything else gets a super thumbs up from us!
The best thing of all though, you don’t have to wear your underpants outside of your trousers in order to play here!
