The Gala Casino Bristol was formerly known as 'Harbourside' but has now been taken over and re-named the Rainbow Casino*. I conducted this review just before the change-over so it references the original name although it is essentially the same casino and remains in the same location: a newly re-developed area of the Harbourside region of Bristol.

* Gala sold their UK land-based casinos in 2014 and their focus is now on their online casino which offers live dealers, card games, roulette and plenty of slot machines (desktop and mobile). Click here to play with Gala online
