Gone for good
Mansion Group is exiting the UK online casino market. This week’s announcements follows the company’s move in March 2022 to close all of its sports betting operations in the UK.
Slots Heaven, Casino(dot)com, and Mansion Casino
The three Mansion Group online casino brands that have been operating in the area are Slots Heaven, Casino(dot)com, and Mansion Casino. Each of the sites now display a message to inform people of the closures. The company will be surrendering its UK Gambling Commission (UKGC) license.
As of Thursday at 5pm GMT, the three platforms stopped taking deposits from users, with gameplay shutting down shortly before midnight on the same day. People who hold an account with one or more of the online casino brands have been told to withdraw any funds before midnight on April 12. People will still be able to remove funds after this date, but the process will become more complex and take longer.
increasingly challenging regulatory conditions have put a strain on the company’s profitability
The company did not give much of an advance warning to users about the closures. Mansion Group CMO Neil Gallacher commented on the news, saying that the company’s focus “in 2023 and beyond is to continue to double down on the most profitable markets where we currently operate, while always seeking to explore emerging markets.” He noted that the UK was the core market for the company for many years, but increasingly challenging regulatory conditions have put a strain on the company’s profitability.
Winding down its UK presence
Mansion Group has been a part of the UK online casino market since getting a UKGC license in November 2017.
At the time of the sportsbook closure, the company informed users by email that the decision was made to concentrate fully on the online casino platforms. It also explained at the time that it was working on expanding its presence in other markets, including Spain and Canada.
