Mansion Group has officially confirmed the closure of its B2C brands casino.com and MansionCasino.com, effective as of the end of October.

Following the closure of its sportsbook business in March 2022, online casino was the only vertical that the group continued to manage.

NEXT.io previously reported the impending business closure in late September, when sources confirmed the company’s wind-down process.

The decision is expected to leave around 200 people without jobs.

A message to affiliates

In a message sent to affiliates, Mansion Group has now confirmed the closure: “After careful evaluation of our business operations, we have made the difficult choice to shut down the B2C operations of our gaming brands, Casino.com and MansionCasino.com.” 

Gaming operations on both sites will cease on 26 October.

The operator further instructed affiliates to close their accounts by 31 October, with final payment processing commencing on 1 November, and funds expected to be disbursed by the third week of November. 

Mansion Group aims to fully close access to its affiliate programme by 31 November.

A note to players

Players were also informed about the closure, with a note on casino.com and mansioncasino.com stating that the sites would no longer accept deposits and gameplay after 7am GMT on 26 October.

Players are encouraged to withdraw any remaining funds by 31 December.

Mansion Group, licensed and headquartered in Gibraltar since 2004, maintained a significant workforce of approximately 150 employees in Sofia, Bulgaria, which served as its primary technological and operational centre. 

The company’s base in Gibraltar operated primarily as its acquisition and marketing hub. 

Challenging period

The company, led by chairman and group president Chris Block since May 2021, has faced significant challenges in recent times. 

Former CEO Karel Mañasco was suspended in September 2021 amid allegations of unauthorised payments during his tenure. He resigned in December of that year. 

Mansion Group exited the UK market in January 2023 citing regulatory challenges. This followed the closure of its sportsbook brand MansionBet in March 2022.

The operator also left the Ontario market in January after obtaining a licence in 2022. 

The specific reasons for the company’s decision to shut down the entire business remain unknown. 

NEXT.io has contacted Mansion Group for comment.
