Mansion Poker revealed last week that their abandoning the United Kingdom Online Gambling Market on September 15th. Players will have the ability to withdrawal all of their funds until that date, afterwards all funds that haven’t been taken out by players will be kept my by the casino. The reasoning for Mansion Poker leaving the market is because of the regulatory infrastructure happening in the UK Gambling Market. No operator wants to pay the mass amount of taxes that will come with operating in the United Kingdom.
Those players who are still active at Mansion Poker have been recommended to play at TitanBet Poker, this in return will allow for players to have the opportunity to continue to play a poker experience that resembles Mansion Pokers experience to the tee. VIP Players who do transfer over to Titanbet poker will be able to keep their VIP Status and also receive a match bonus worth 200%.
The United Kingdom Government has had a large amount of operators pull out of the market which has worried not only the government but also players. You see online gambling operators will now have to pay a 15% tax on every gambling platform they offer to their punters. This will prove to be a mass amount of money lost from the casino which has lead to the majority of operators leaving the market.
This information came to light after Mansion Poker sent an email to each one of their customers. The email reads as follows, “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.”
