While MoPlay was only established in 2018 – making it much younger than many of its rivals – it has quickly made an impression on online casino enthusiasts. The site is operated by the Gibraltar-registered company Addison Global Limited, and is also registered with I.B.A.S. and eCOGRA.
MoPlay is not just an online casino, but also a sports betting portal, which leads us onto the first obvious problem with the site: the wealth of promos and bonuses on offer to sports bettors is far superior to the hardly any promotions currently being advertised on the casino side.
Hopefully, by the time you come to visit the site yourself, the promos will have expanded somewhat beyond the solitary welcome offer we encountered when we checked it out for this review. We couldn’t find any promos at all, for example, geared towards either roulette or blackjack.
Nonetheless, players here can still look forward to free spins for certain slot games when they put down a deposit on the site for the first time.
One thing that you’re unlikely to be complaining about as a MoPlay member is the variety of games available here. Many of the finest slots, blackjack, roulette and other titles can be enjoyed here, encompassing such branded and generic options as:
Indeed, there are more than 160 games in all to enjoy on the desktop version of the site – but the mobile-optimised site, as you can access with your smartphone through a mobile web browser, is scarcely any less formidable. It showcases over 120 games that have been beautifully designed to suit the smaller screen of a smartphone, with the below being just some examples.
As aforementioned, MoPlay offers sports betting as well as casino games, and it’s not an insignificant offering. With a vast range of markets available encompassing football, horse racing, tennis, boxing, darts and so many more sports, you might find that MoPlay suffices just fine as your sole online gambling destination – especially if you like to bet on virtual sports as well.
Looking back to the casino games section of the site, it’s worth pointing out that there are some intriguing poker options here too, such as Casino Stud Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Three Card Poker and Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker.
It’s common these days for casino sites to not just depend on one software developer for all of their games, but instead to draw from a variety of such companies – and MoPlay is much the same.
With its own wide-ranging casino games being sourced from leading software providers like Red Tiger, iSoftBet and Evolution Gaming, you don’t need to worry about the crispness of the graphics, the vibrancy of the colours or even just how intuitive the controls are in these games.
The main MoPlay site looks pretty clean and well-organised as well, the various menu options being laid out much as you would expect them to be, and pages loading swiftly.
As we stated above, MoPlay is partnered with the eCOGRA Alternative Dispute Resolution (‘ADR’) Service and the Independent Betting Adjudication Service (I.B.A.S.), both of which have been approved by the UK Gambling Commission.
Intriguingly in light of its relative youth, MoPlay is also the Global Betting Partner of two major English football clubs, Manchester United and Watford.
MoPlay accepts a variety of payment methods that are popular on online casinos, although some – such as PayPal – are noticeably missing.
|Payment Method||Fee||Processing Time||Limit Per Deposit|
|Skrill 1-Tap||£0||Instant||Minimum £10|

Some aspects of MoPlay’s customer service feel distinctly lacking. It took us a while, for example, to find any contact email address for the site, which doesn’t give the impression that the team welcomes people getting in touch with them. Furthermore, even the ‘live chat’ function doesn’t appear until you specifically navigate to the help section of the site, and there’s no phone number to contact, either.
But on the other hand, there’s a comprehensive and helpful database of frequently asked questions (FAQs) to make your use of the site so much easier, and the official MoPlay social media accounts are regularly updated as well.
MoPlay states that it forbids people based in certain jurisdictions from signing up for an account on the site, which seems fair enough – after all, online gambling isn’t even legal in certain corners of the world.
However, the site doesn’t state which countries or territories it specifically restricts. You’ll therefore need to tread carefully and consider the legal situation where you are, before opening a MoPlay account.
In any case, the site is only available in the English language, so those who would prefer their casino site to be in a language that they can understand better may be best-advised to look elsewhere.
For customers in Great Britain, MoPlay is licensed and regulated by the highly respected UK Gambling Commission.
MoPlay may not be the best-known of online casino sites – or at least, not yet – but it does make a good account of itself. We love the in-depth assortment of games, covering all of the essential categories such as slots, blackjack and roulette, and the selection of live casino games here is more impressive than even many much longer-established portals.
There are, however, some obvious omissions. There’s no VIP or loyalty scheme here yet, for instance, and the relative lack of promotions and bonuses on the site compared to its obvious competitors also shocked us.
Nonetheless, there are a lot of things to like about MoPlay, including the fact that it is a comprehensive online gambling destination, serving up plenty of sports betting and even virtual sports betting opportunities. Register an account here today, and you might just be pleasantly surprised by this slick-operating and well-presented casino site.
