Mansion Group denies UK exit reports

11 September 2014

Gaming operator Mansion Group has denied reports that it is to withdraw its online casino services from the UK, despite having already confirmed that its internet poker service will exit the market.

The company said in a statement that it is currently in the application process to gain a UK gambling licence in accordance with the UK regulator guidelines and timelines.

Mansion Group said it will continue to support all current and potential players in the UK and will continue to focus on its UK consumer base in each of its casino brands.

The company confirmed that its Casino.com, MansionCasino.com, LesAcasino.com, Club777.com and SlotsHeaven.com online casino brands will remain operational in the UK market.

Mansion Group moved to assure customers that the casino brands will continue to operate as normal during the licensing applications process.

The news comes after Mansion Group last week confirmed in an email to customers that it would be withdrawing its online poker service from the UK market.

Mansion Group said the decision was based on changing regulations in the UK market, which it said will have an impact on its MansionPoker.com online poker brand.

The service, which the firm said accounts for a “very marginal part” of overall business, will officially exit the UK poker market as of September 15.
