This Aspire Global powered casino has all the advantages (and disadvantages) that are typical for this family of sites. The advantages are many: Hopa is optimised for play on more compact screens, so it is definitely phone friendly. It has lots of tabs, links and user-friendly features to help you find the games you want quickly and with a minimum of scrolling.
And this is especially useful because there are so many to choose from. This is especially the case with slots, where there are hundreds in stock. These are supplied by some big name software providers, such as NetEnt and Microgaming, together with a useful supporting cast including Amaya and NeoGames. This means that all of your favourite games are likely to be here, but there is always sufficient variety if you want to try something new or different. There is also a decent range of scratch cards to play.
Payment options are also flexible. You can choose conventional plastic methods such as Visa or MasterCard, e-payments including Neteller and Skrill, or the pre-payment alternative Paysafecard. In total, there are well over a dozen different ways to make your deposits here. The minimum payment is £10.
Withdrawals can also begin from just £10. There is also a monthly cash out limit of £7,000 per month, although this restriction may not apply to UK based players, nor to VIP members. Introductory bonuses must be wagered 35 x, while the value of any free spins must be wagered 50 x before withdrawal. You can expect your winnings to reach your account within seven days of your claim.
Support is also a strong point at Hopa. You can consult a nine section Help link, plus a further detailed FAQ area. For a more personal or detailed response, you can contact the Customer Care team via e-mail, live chat or even phone, on 0203 318 9367. The team are available from 6am to 11pm, seven days a week.
On the down side, there are fewer traditional casino games here than on many of its rivals. There is a reasonable range of around twenty different table game options, around half of which are live dealer formats. This may well be sufficient for many players, but there certainly is greater variety available elsewhere.
Overall, Hopa is a well-designed casino which shares the positive characteristics we have come to expect from Aspire Global operated sites. It remains a good choice for slot fans looking for a reliable casino to play on their phone or tablet.
Licencing is arranged via the Malta Gaming Authority and Hopa is also licenced and fully regulated by the UK Gambling Commission, and can therefore be considered safe to play for United Kingdom based players.
