This article shows a user how to import their Gala Games and Entertainment wallet into Metamask using their Recovery Phrase.
In order for a user to import their Gala Games and Entertainment wallet into Metamask, a user will need their 12-word recovery phrase1 to follow this tutorial. This seed phrase allows a user to use their wallet beyond the Gala Games website. This phrase is shown to the user during account creation. This is the same phrase that users must confirm they have saved multiple times before creating a wallet.
Note: The user assumes all risk and responsibility for the use of this third-party wallet and any other similar wallet.

This prompt will come up after clicking import wallet. Decide whether or not to agree to share anonymous data to MetaMask’s developers and move onto the next step.
3) In the seed phrase field, enter the account’s seed phrase. This can be copied and pasted from a text file. If it needs to be entered manually, clicking the “show seed phrase” button will help make sure the words are spelled correctly and are in the right order.
