MoPlay is an intriguing recent introduction to the world of online sports betting. Indeed, it was only launched in 2017, but already enjoys ‘Global Betting Partner’ status with both Manchester United and Watford FC. The Gibraltar-registered company, Addison Global Limited operates the site.
As is the case with other popular sports betting sites, the assortment of promotions available at MoPlay at any one time is liable to vary. Nonetheless, as a member here, you can expect perks like the below:
- A generous free-bet welcome offer
- Other free bets
- Odds upgrades
- Free spins
Who doesn’t like choice when it comes to online sports betting? MoPlay certainly offers a lot of it – it’s one of the site’s greatest strengths.
You can look forward to betting on the following sports, competitions and leagues at MoPlay:
- Football, including the UEFA Nations League, Champions League, English Premier League and so many more leading cups and tournaments around the world
- Horse racing, encompassing the likes of the King George VI Chase, Cheltenham Gold Cup and Grand National
- Major tennis competitions such as Wimbledon and the Australian, French and US Opens
- Cricket competitions like the Twenty20 World Cup and One Day Internationals
- Darts, futsal, chess, e-sports, MMA and other slightly lesser-spotted categories
Live betting is a key element of the MoPlay experience. An entire section of the website is dedicated to it, in fact, which enables you to gamble on the outcome of football, tennis, badminton and other high-profile sporting events while they are taking place.
However, MoPlay isn’t only available on a traditional desktop computer, as you’ve also got the option of downloading the site’s mobile app or simply navigating to the smartphone-optimised version of the site via your favoured device for ‘on the go’ sports betting.
Indeed, if anything, the mobile variant of the site may make more sense than the desktop one, given that the graphics and menus that look a little basic on the desktop site have a more purposeful feel on a smaller screen. Furthermore, all of your favourite sporting markets and even the likes of slots, blackjack, roulette and virtual sports can be enjoyed on the mobile site.
Software and Graphics
MoPlay is presently based on a fairly simple black, white and grey design that – as we alluded to above – looks a little primitive compared to some of its much more graphically impressive rivals.
An obvious counterargument to this, though, is that a sports betting site looking a bit basic isn’t a big deal if the actual user experience is good. Well, the experience of actually gambling here mostly is good, with the various navigational and menu options being logically placed and easy to use.
However, we do think the mobile site is a better-rounded proposition than the desktop one.
As we touched on above, MoPlay enjoys partnerships with both Manchester United and Watford FC. The deal with the Red Devils was announced in August 2018, and will see the site work with the club over several years to provide exclusive content to fans.
In the case of Watford FC, meanwhile, the site has had its branding featured on the players’ sleeves during the 2018/19 season, and is working on initiatives to delight supporters of the club.
So, if you’re a fan of either club, you might have extra reason to do your sports betting at MoPlay.
Another intriguing aspect of life as a member of MoPlay is the fact that the site is by no means solely about sports betting. You’ve got the likes of slots, roulette, blackjack and even live casino games to enjoy here, with the below being just a selection of them:
- Sakura Fortune
- Live Roulette
- Mega Fortune
- Blackjack Multi-Hand
Then, there’s the virtual sports section, which enables you to gamble on computer-generated matches and teams. Represented sports here include football, greyhounds and horse racing, and it’s basically akin to betting on the outcome of a match on a video game such as Fifa or Football Manager.
Deposit and Withdrawal Methods
It’s a straightforward process to add money to your MoPlay account via the site’s ‘Top Up’ section, although the range of payment methods from which you can choose isn’t quite as broad as what some competitor sites can offer.
|Payment Method||Fee||Processing Time||Limit Per Deposit|
|Skrill 1-Tap||£0||Instant||Minimum £10|
You are generally required to withdraw funds from your account with the same method that you used to make a deposit. If, however, you deposited using Paysafecard, your withdrawal will be processed via Fast Bank Transfer.
|Withdrawal Method||Fee||Processing Time||Limit Per Withdrawal|
|Mastercard Card||24-48 hours||Minimum £10|
|Visa||24-48 hours||Minimum £10|
|Skrill||24-48 hours||Minimum £10|
|Skrill 1-Tap||24-48 hours||Minimum £10|
|Neteller||24-48 hours||Minimum £10|
|Fast Bank Transfer||24-48 hours||Minimum £10|
If we’re being honest, the standard of customer support is one of the most disappointing aspects of MoPlay – so let’s concentrate on the positive side first. There’s a generally very useful database of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) with attached answers, covering such subjects as getting started, topping up your account, how you can gamble responsibly, and much more.
However, we aren’t so impressed by the site having apparently made it as difficult as possible to find any contact details with which to get in touch with the support team more directly.
Yes, there’s a ‘live chat’ feature, but we only found this by doing some digging in the Help section, and the only email address we could find was one for formal complaints. Even worse news is that there doesn’t seem to be a contact telephone number at all.
MoPlay does have a strong presence on Twitter, though, where its account receives frequent updates.
Who Can Play?
MoPlay states that there are certain territories from which it does not accept registrants; however, it doesn’t explicitly state in its terms and conditions what those territories are.
It’s therefore up to you to ensure you only sign up to the site if you are confident that online gambling is actual legal in the territory you are visiting or based in. The below territories are known for their especially strict gambling laws, but this is not an exhaustive list.
- United Arab Emirates
MoPlay is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission for people using the site to bet in Britain. The Gambling Commission is one of the most trusted regulatory bodies for online gambling in the world, so you shouldn’t have any concerns about the site’s trustworthiness.
There are certainly more extravagant-looking gambling portals out there, and we aren’t greatly pleased by the lack of customer support options here. Nonetheless, MoPlay does have a lot of strengths, including a nice range of promotions, an even more stellar assortment of sporting markets and a mobile site that is a pleasure to use.
Register an account at MoPlay today, and you might just realise why several of England’s best-known football clubs have been pleased to ink a global partnership deal with this well-sorted site.
