I don’t know what it is about online casinos and space themes, but they seem to be multiplying every week. With GoPro Casino it’s more astronaut floating in a space station rather than aliens and galaxies, but the genre remains the same.
Launched in 2019, GoPro Casino carries two licenses from Malta and the UK, offering a wide range of slots, scratch cards and live casino, plus a generous loyalty program and cash back offers. Let’s also take a moment to appreciate this online casino’s name, so closely related to a particularly well-known action camera, it seems like a law suit waiting to happen. But this review is limited to looking at what a newcomer can expect from this space odyssey, so let’s get started.
GoPro Casino: The Highlights
- Great welcome bonus for highrollers
- Loyalty program with cashback offers
- Accepts CAD and Interac
The first thing that struck me as odd is that this casino is gearing toward big budget players, with a welcome bonus that only applies to those willing to deposit C$250 or more. What’s more is that despite the generous sounding 200%, the bonus cash you’re eligible to receive from the offer is capped at C$500. You should also be fully aware that all bonus money is subject to wagering requirements of 35 x, and this must be met within 21 days of accepting the bonus.
Ready to get wagering? Not all GoPro’s games contribute towards these rather steep wagering requirements. You’ll only get 100% on slots, and a few of these are excluded, weighted at just 50%, 10% or 0%. All video poker, blackjack, roulette, and baccarat won’t count toward your wagering requirements at all. So if the latter are your usual game preference, you may as well not bother with the bonus at all. In fact, the only players to really benefit from this bonus are high rolling players, happy to make large deposits on slots.
Thinking of sticking around for a while? GoPro Casino’s VIP Club comes in 7 tiers for players to rise through:
- New Member VIP
- Bronze VIP
- Silver VIP
- Premium VIP
- Prestige VIP
As is the case with all programs like these, you climb the ranks by playing and betting. Most games will earn you 1 Reward Point for every C$40 wagered. For all levels you’ll be automatically moved up through the ranks, but Premium and Prestige VIP levels are by invitation only. Your points can be exchanged for bonus cash at different redemption rates, depending on your level. For example, at Bronze level you need 30 points to redeem €1, but at Prestige level you only 15 points.
Going up through the levels will also get you additional rewards ranging from faster withdrawals, free play days, access to live tournaments, higher bet limits, and cash back. In fact, you’re far more likely to make use of these sporadic offers rather than the actual points because it will take a while to reach the different ranks. Some levels require up to 1,000 points to grant you entry, meaning quite a high price in terms of your real cash deposits.
If you’re invited to Premium or Prestige level then it means you’ve stuck around GoPro Casino for a good long while, or that you’re a heck of a high roller. But it also means that you’ll access a boatload of exclusive benefits and bespoke rewards, including access to express withdrawals, double or triple monthly cash back, and the maximum free games the program has to offer.
GoPro Casino has a decent collection of over 400 games. These include some 25 Live Casino games from Evolution Gaming across blackjack, baccarat and roulette. There’s even the gameshow-style Dream Catcher available, which offers you the opportunity to play your very own live wheel of fortune game for potentially huge wins.
However, the biggest chunk of what’s on offer is taken up by slots and scratch cards. In fact the site is built to attract players who enjoy the thrill of instant gratification, and isn’t really the right hub for those who enjoy the long-term strategy of poker. These slots and scratch cards come from a varied selection of providers like Microgaming, NetEnt, IGT, ELK Studios, Lightning Box, Just For The Win, NextGen Gaming, Blueprint Gaming, Playson, and Pragmatic Play.
You can get a free test drive on each and every game in demo mode before even opening an account. I liked this feature a lot, as many other casinos require you to sign up before you can access free play. In this way I got to have a proper look around the online casino before committing any of my personal information.
At GoPro Casino deposits are always instant and free. These can be done using traditional channels like Visa and MasterCard, but you can also transfer your funds via e-wallets like ecoPayz and paysafecard. Canadian players will also get to choose from Interac and Instadebit, making the depositing process even more convenient.
When it comes to taking your cash out of this online casino, it’s a little less instant that depositing. But this is pretty much business as usual. Players will generally not have to wait longer than 48 hours for their request to be processed. But remember there’s additional waiting time on top of this depending on what method you use to withdraw. E-wallets like Interac, Instadebit, ecoPayz and paysafecard are your best bet as they’re usually instant and free. Visa and MasterCard may charge a small fee and usually take between 1 and 3 banking days.
Unfortunately GoPro Casino stumbles at the customer support hurdle. If you’re looking to get some questions answered then you have three options:
- Live Chat
- Web contact form
This doesn’t sound so bad right? It would be a satisfactory offering if Live Chat was available around the clock, but players or would-be players can only start an instant conversation between the hours of 8 am and 1 am CET. Canadians who find these times inconvenient may have to resort to the web contact form, which means waiting for a reply over what I can only imagine will be a couple of hours at least. The last port of call is a range of FAQs which, credit to GoPro, are far more extensive than you get with most online casinos.
All right, so let’s sum things up. GoPro Casino could be a great option, but it hasn’t been designed to appeal to a particularly wide audience. First of all, you’ve got to love slots and scratch cards, otherwise you’ll be finding yourself in possession of a pretty useless welcome bonus. And on the subject of bonuses, you’ll need to be comfortable with high rolling deposits of at least C$250 if you want to get a shot at that bonus cash. Customer support is also annoyingly limited, and doesn’t have any 24 hour service.
On the up side, the site is well-designed, offering pre-registration free access to all games, which are subject to efficient and easy to use filters. The bottom line? I would recommend this online casino to players who enjoy instant gratification games and aren’t too fussed about bonuses and promotions.
