In March 2022, the Mansion Group let go of its sports betting activities in the UK to focus on online gambling. Thus, bookie PPH insiders are surprised that the company is shutting down its UK online casinos.
Mansion has been a player in the UK online gaming sector for over five years. Still, the company never established itself well enough to warrant a sustained financial commitment.
Mansion Casino, Slots Heaven, and Casino.com have told their users that the firm would soon be closing. However, whether other Mansion offices, such as those in Spain and Canada, will be shut down is unclear, and officials have been mum on the subject.

The decision and the reasoning behind it were not made clear by Mansion, and little forewarning was provided. The company’s lack of forward-thinking customer service is likely to blame in no little part for its lack of commercial success.
According to sports handicapping experts, the shifting climate in the UK could have also contributed. There has been a shift in attitude about gambling in the country, and the increased limitations have made it harder for certain operators to earn a livelihood.
A notice has been added to the UK-facing webpages of Mansion, saying that the platform has disabled games as of the wee hours of January 12 and is no longer taking deposits as of 5 p.m. on the same day.
According to bookie PPH sources, it specifies that all user balances must be cleared by April 12. Withdrawal requests are still technically possible beyond that date, as UK gambling legislation requires. However, it is not a simple task and may take a few months.
Mansion is present across many continents, including Spain, Canada, and Africa. Since it is shifting its focus to affiliate marketing, other jurisdictions for online gambling may follow suit. Thus, they don’t need to increase sportsbook website traffic.
