Up to £500 bonus + 100 Spins
GENERAL INFORMATION : DISCOVER HOPA IN A FEW WORDS…
Present on the market since 2005 and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and the Malta Gaming Autority, Hopa is an online casino which belongs to Aspire Global. The fact that this group, led by CEO Tsachi Maimon, is listed on the NASDAQ Swedish stock exchange represents a major advantage for it is always preferable for one to play on online platforms belonging to recognised companies. It is a guarantee of reliability that ensures the security of your funds, the payment of your winnings and the safety of your personal information.
We particularly appreciate the hushed atmosphere of this online casino. We are far from rather childish-looking casinos or those which rely on a sexy ambiance. Hopa therefore is an online casino targeted at female and male players aged between 30 and 35 and above. It offers a large selection of casino games with a very comprehensive range of slot machines (Neogames, Evolution, PlayNGo, Microgaming, NetEnt, iSoftBet, Ainsworth, Booming Games, Pragmatic, IGT, Pariplay, Realistic Games, Playson, TomHom, Habanero, GameART, Gaming1, Booongo, BetSoft, 1×2 Gaming, Iron Dog, NYX, BluePrint, LightningBox, NextGen, Scientific, ThunderKick, Inspired Gaming, Bet Digital), live dealer casino games such as roulette, blackjack, baccarat but also scratch cards and virtual games. Overall, it provides its community with over 400 online games available on various platforms (web version, mobile, tablets and app). It’s just a shame that Hopa.com does not offer sport betting like in the case of Karamba, its sister casino.
Players who enjoy gambling from their smartphones will enjoy the Android and iOS application of this mobile casino, which is very advanced technologically speaking. These applications are both fast and easy to use and allow players to gamble on a wide range of slot machines and other games available on the platform wherever they are.
We also welcome the generous loyalty VIP program made up of 7 VIP levels ranging from. New member to Prestige VIP offering some great rewards such as loyalty points that you can exchange for cash prizes, monthly cashback or the Sunday Free Spins which allow players who log in on Sundays to receive Free Spins without any deposit needed.

DEPOSIT AND WITHDRAWAL INFORMATION
Minimum deposit and withdrawal limits :
- Minimum deposit : £10
- Minimum withdrawal : £10
Unlike players residing in other countries, UK players are not subject to any monthly withdrawal limit. Hence, they may withdraw all their winnings at any given moment. Outside the UK, the withdrawals of non-VIP players are subject to a monthly limit of £7,000.
In order to ensure responsible gaming, the players may set their own daily, weekly or monthly deposit limits. Once logged in, the player may set this limit by following the “Deposit Limit” section found within “Account settings”. Once those thresholds have been reached, it is not possible to credit one’s account anymore.
Hopa offers a large selection of payment methods to their players in order for them to deposit funds into their real money gambling account. All the payment methods listed below are instant. As soon as the deposit is approved, it’s sum will directly be credited to their account.
- Skrill 1-Tap
- Wire transfer
- Visa and Master card credit card (note that when depositing using your credit card you will not be asked to choose between the different ones such as electron, delta or debit, which is pretty cool and avoids human mistake).
The payment method used to make deposits will also be the one used for the withdrawal of your winnings. The only exception to the rule is the MasterCard, for it does not allow cash inflows. Players having deposited money using a MasterCard will thus receive their winnings through bank, Skrill or Neteller transfer.
One may also note that Hopa does not allow players to withdraw winnings using a credit card other than that used to deposit funds. This measure was implemented in order to prevent money laundering. A player may not deposit using a card x and withdraw using a card y.
A deposit fee of 2.5% will apply for credit card payments.
How to get your winnings?
To withdraw your winnings, log in to your account and click on “Cashier”. In “cashout”, select your payment method, then fill in the form which will appear on the screen and indicate the amount of money your wish to take out.
Withdrawals may be carried out on pc, smartphone or tablet.
If you carry out several withdrawals over a period of 24 hours, all your winnings will be payed at one go.
Documents to be provided to verify your account and withdraw your funds
In order to process the payment Hopa will have to verify your account. During this process you will have to upload, send via email, fax or post the following list of documents:
- Identification document
- Proof of address
- A two-sided copy of your payment card (if your deposit was carried out using a credit card)
These documents will only have to be sent to the service document verification during the first withdrawal request. They will not be requested for the following withdrawals unless, in an exceptional case, the sum of your winnings is staggeringly high. In this case, certain supporting documents may be requested.
The casino promises to examine your documents in under 48 hours in order to verify your account.
Terms of payment
The terms of payment which apply to the withdrawal depend on the chosen payment method and include the treatment of your request by the casino, which lasts 48h, period during which the payout may be cancelled by the player. Once the withdrawal request has been treated by Hopa, its status changes from “Pending” to “Processing”.
Know that the withdrawals carried out with Neteller, Skrill or any other APM ( Alternative Payment Method ) are instant. Regarding payments of winnings carried out by card or wire transfer on the other hand, one must wait between 3 and 5 business days before receiving the funds on their account.
Note that Hopa VIP players see their payments honoured in under 24 hours.
PLATFORM AND GAME PORTFOLIO
The Hopa casino uses the Aspire Global platform like some of the best UK casino sites.
ALL OF HOPA CASINO’S EFFORTS IN TERMS OF REGULATION AND SECURITY
The online casino Hopa is owned by the firm ASG Technologies Ltd, which is registered in the British Virgin Islands.
In the UK, the games and slots are operated by AG Communications Limited, a company registered and based in Malta (Sliema). The latter is allowed to offer casino games and sport betting in the UK for it has both a Casino and a General Betting Standard Real Event license from the United Kingdom Gambling Commission (licence 000-039483-R-319409-001).
Hopa operates in other countries via Aspire Global International LTD, which was granted a license from the Maltese regulator MGA in 2009 (licence MGA/B2C/148/2007).
In order to ensure the safety and confidentiality of the information entrusted to them by its player community via internet, Hopa uses one of the best data protection systems : the SSL certificate (128-bit Secure Sockets Layer).
PRO AND CONS
- Customer support is so friendly that we quickly found ourselves engaging a customer service representative into an interesting and pleasant conversation. We appreciate the hard work of the team and the individual attention they offer their players and their commitment to answering every single one of their questions. Unforunately, one has to wait a certain time before receiving a reply on chat. Out of the 5 times we requested a chat from the live support, we had the wait between 4 and 6 minutes.
- Hopa is one of the only few casinos offering Aspire Global and NeoGames slot machines such as Fruity Friend, Mighty Sphinx or Reel Bandit or Astrodice that we enjoyed spinning the reels of.
WHAT WE WOULD LOVE TO GET ON HOPA
- Even though this brand offers a wide range of slot machines, we feel it would be interesting for the casino to expand its slot offerings by integrating some Yggdrasil machines such as Rainbow Ryan or Vikings Go Berzerk for example, which are much appreciated by the gambler community. We are also missing PlayTech game selection.
- We would also appreciate it if Hopa was to offer sports betting. This idea really isn’t that crazy, for the casino Karamba, which belongs to the same firm, offers sports wagering since march 2018.
