UK License for Mansion Group

UK CommissionGaming operator Mansion Group has been granted a Remote Gambling Software licence by the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC).

The licence will enable Mansion to continue to operate its various online casino services in the UK market.

Mansion’s UK portfolio currently features MansionCasino.com, Casino.com, Club777.com, LesACasino.com and SlotsHeaven.com.

The news comes after Mansion in September announced that it was to withdraw its Mansion Poker online service from the UK market.

Mansion was also linked with a total withdrawal from the UK, but denied that it would fully exit the market.

Sagi Lahav, chief executive officer of Mansion, said: “We’re delighted to be officially licensed by the UKGC, which is an important milestone in our strategy of acquiring gaming licences in key markets for the company.
