Mansion Poker to Exits UK

Starting on September 15th Mansion Poker will officially no longer be available to customers from the United Kingdom. People who are still playing on this website should cash out as soon as possible to secure their own funds. The message sent by Mansion read as following.

“Due to changing regulations regarding online gaming in the United Kingdom, we must inform you that Mansion Poker is required to close its doors to UK players on September 15th, 2014. As a result, we kindly request that you withdraw any and all funds you have in your Mansion Poker account.”

Mansion, part of the iPoker network, recommends players to join Players that move to Titanbet will receive a huge 200% first deposit bonus up to £1,200, as explained in the following part of the e-mail.

After you have created your account, please contact Titanbet Poker support. The new room will match your Points and VIP level from Mansion Poker so that you can get a head start in your poker play.”

It seems like Mansion will be the first of many to pull out of the UK market after the licensing system and 15% consumption tax was applied to gaming operators. The UK Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Bill is seen as a serious threat, but some think that Mansion might’ve acted a little to fast. The Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association (GBGA) has filed an appeal against the aforementioned bill in a higher court and that means the ruling could still be overturned.

Mansion’s departure from the UK however suggests that they at least have very little hope that this will happen. So if you have money on there, cash out now.
