Gibraltar-based gaming operator Mansion Group has secured a remote gambling software licence from the UK Gambling Commission (UKGC), allowing it to continue offering its services in the country.

The approval means the operator can continue to serve customers via its five casino brands,,,, and, as well as further strengthening its position in the market.

It also certifies that Mansion’s products are fully compliant with the terms of the UK’s Gambling (Licensing and Advertising) Act that came into force in late 2014.

“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,” the operator’s chief executive Sagi Lahav commented.

In September last year the operator was forced to deny that it was to withdraw from the UK market entirely, but revealed that it would remove its poker product from the market, describing it as making only a small contribution to revenue. However the company has pulled its casino brands from the German iGaming market.

Lahav revealed that the company will now look to develop a presence in the Italian market, launching a site tailored specifically for Italian players next month.

“Despite the additional challenges that regulation poses, Mansion welcomes the additional security and transparency that this gives our players, further reinforcing Mansion's firm views and policies around player protection and responsible gaming,” Lahav explained. “As such, this is extremely positive for both the Mansion Group and the wider industry.”
