Mansion Group, a longstanding member of the UK gambling scene, has confirmed that it will be leaving the UK market on Friday, January 13th. Visitors to any of the operator’s three brands in the UK, Mansion Casino, Slots Heaven and Casino.com will be greeted with a message informing them of the closing down of operations.
Mansion Group has been active online in the UK since receiving its license from the UKGC in November 2017, with the company having a presence there for over 20 years. The decision to leave one of the most competitive markets in the industry will not have been taken lightly, but the company believes that the UK is no longer the best place for them to be.
In a statement, the company said that it seems the UK has no room for Mansion Group to operate successfully, confirming its departure date of January 13th. The company continued to say that it will now shift its focus to other markets such as Spain and Canada. The website, mansiongroup.es has already proven to be incredibly popular in Spain, and the company is in the process of applying for a license in Ontario, Canada.
Mansion Group has wasted no time in making a speedy exit from the market. The company confirmed its intention to leave just days ago and confirmed it would be surrendering its UKGC license on Friday, January 13th. As of 17:00 on January 12th, it still receiving deposits from players, and it will close down all of its sites officially at 23:50 on Friday evening.
Players that still have funds in their accounts on any of the operator’s three sites will still have time to withdraw them. The operator confirmed players will have until 23:59 on Wednesday, April 12th, 2023.
This exit follows 10 months after the operator closed down its sports-betting services, MansionBet. Mansion Group closed the popular brand in March 2022, stating at the time that it wanted to focus its energy on building its online casino brands. It does also note its intention to begin to explore other markets outside of the UK, something which has been a precursor to the recent move.
Mansion Group’s presence in the British market will no doubt be missed. The brand has established itself as a popular choice among British punters. The company has operated three online brands in the UK since 2017 - Mansion Casino, Casino.Com and Slots Heaven.
It has also been a staple of the British sporting scene, having sponsored and worked with several Premier League teams including Tottenham Hotspur, Bournemouth, and Manchester City. It has also worked with Championship sides Bristol City and Millwall in recent years.
