, an online gaming company with more than
10 years of experience within the industry. Licensed by the UKGC and
the Government of Gibraltar, this Playtech-powered casino provides a
solid gaming choice across a whole range of gaming categories, with standard and VIP
promotional offers and a healthy variety of payment methods to choose
from. After a recent overhaul Mansion is looking as strong as ever, we took a whirlwind tour to find out what's new.
Impressions: As User Friendly as It Gets
like the leathery black background which makes the site feel kind of
premium. The message it gives when you first land on it is very
straightforward; rather than bombarding us with 'latest
multiple 'join now' prompters, and a variety of other messages which usually make one
uncertain what to look at first, the Mansion home page displays only a
promotional banner and widgets of their top games. I like! Simple
menu positioned on top lets me check out promotional offers, learn
more about the brand, ask for help, and download their software.
Links to legally required information are accessible once you scroll
all the way down, so it seems all of the crucial content is accounted
Bonus: Choose Your Welcome Offer
you’ve signed up and made your first deposit, you’ll be prompted
to accept or decline a welcome bonus. There’s as much as Â£5,000 up
for grabs once you open an account, and the nice thing is that you
get to choose between two welcome offers. Double Your Money Welcome
Bonus offers a 100% match of your first deposit, up to very decent
Â£500. Bonus is redeemable (yay!) but only after you have wagered 20x
your deposit and bonus amount. High Roller Welcome Bonus gets your
first deposit of Â£1,000 or more matched by 50%, up to an impressive
amount of Â£5,000. This one can be also be redeemed, subject to 15x
bonus + deposit play-through.
is usually the case, only wagers on slots contribute 100%. Majority
of other games will provide 20-25% contribution, with the exception
of Blackjack Switch and Pontoon (5%), and Jacks or Better, Fortunate
Five, Gold Rally and Everybody’s
Adapted to Players’ Bankrolls
Your Match is giving me the option of starting the month with a 100% reload bonus
up to Â£500, or even as much as Â£1,000 in case I’m a VIP (not
yet). To qualify, a minimum Â£25 deposit is required from us mere
mortals, and Â£50 or more from players occupying the top two VIP
levels. To claim this bonus, code FIRST1 has to be used with the
first deposit of the month. This particular bonus is not
withdrawable, and before cahsing in my winnings, I’ll have to wager
the bonus amount a minimum of 40 times. That’s a bit harsh. Another
important detail: in order to qualify, your account should not hold
more than Â£10.
or Black offer, available each Wednesday, consists of 2 reload bonus
options: either 100% match bonus up to Â£400 (code RED) which is
subject to 40x wagering requirement, or a 50% match up to Â£400 (code
BLACK) which needs to played through 20 times. The minimum single
deposit to qualify is Â£20.
your friend to join as well and you’ll earn yourself an extra Â£50.
But before you lay your hands on this bonus, the friend in question
will have to wager their own welcome bonus 40 times. At the same
time, you’ll have to play through the bribe 15 times before it gets
released into your account as real cash.
Casino additionally features a standard comp points scheme, awarding
1 loyalty point for each Â£20 wagered on slots (Â£30
on progressives!), Â£40
on Poker and other card games, Â£50 on Roulette, and so on. If you’re
into Video Pokers, you’re buggered; you’ll need to spend as much
as Â£150 for one measly point. Once you’ve collected 100 points,
they can be exchanged for Â£1 in cash. But if you save them, you
won’t only move up the ladder, but also enjoy better redemption
qualify as a VIP, players need to have accumulated 20,000 points and
deposited Â£3,000, while as many as 50,000 loyalty points and a
minimum of Â£24,000 deposits are needed to join the VIP Elite. Is it
worth it? Let’s see. I’ll get a personal account manager and
receive invites to exclusive VIP events (ok, no big deal). I’ll
also be offered exclusive promotions & reloads (could be
interesting), but probably the biggest benefit of all is being able
to exploit higher loyalty point conversion rates, faster withdrawals
and higher cash-out
Deposits & Withdrawals: Are
You a VIP or Not?
Casino offers a number of deposit-only options, such as Paysafecard,
Trustly, iDeal, Sofort, Boku and Zimpler, allowing you to pay a
minimum of Â£10 to Â£20 into your account. Credit and Debit Cards are
available for both deposits and withdrawals, and same goes for Skrill
and Neteller, PayPal, Entropay, ecoPayz, WebMoney and Bank Transfer.
Both the maximum withdrawal limits and the processing time depend on
your VIP level, which personally I don’t like at all. So, if you’re
only Bronze, Silver or Gold member, the operator will take 3 days (!)
to process your cash-out request and allow you to withdraw up to
Â£15,000 per month. Lucky VIP and Elite players get to collect double
that amount and have their requests processed in 1 to 2 business
Casino is a single provider gaming venue, which inevitably affects
the number and variety of games offered. Some of you might be
disappointed that there are only about 260 to choose from. However,
as the provider in question is Playtech, the quality of a library
which includes some of their fantastic slots and table games, might
compensate for a fairly limited selection.
are given a choice of using instant play version or downloading the
casino software. Personally, I like launching games online and will
not burden my hard drive with yet another piece of software unless
given a very good reason to do it – such as, for example, a
significantly bigger choice, or an opportunity to participate in
tournaments. In this case, the difference is only about 30 games in
favour of download, and slightly better filtering options; in my
opinion, not worth
of 200 slots includes all of the most popular Playtech games, such as
Jurassic Island, A Night Out, The Flintstones, highly volatile Great
Blue, bewitching Halloween Fortune II, and branded titles such as
Rocky and the Mummy.
and the Wolf video slot is visually attractive and truly entertaining
game which comes with a fun Huff ‘n Puff Shuffle feature,
creatively executed free games with Pigs Running Wild, and an
interactive Blow the House Down bonus round.
fairytale inspired slot
The 8th Wonder of the World is played in 2 modes, Jungle mode and Big
City mode. The first comes with Wild Jungle Respins and the Skull
Island bonus, a pick-and-click affair awarding cash prizes. The
second offers Wild Kong Respins and the City Tower Bonus which
prompts you to destroy the planes as they head towards the King Kong
perched on top of the Empire State Building.

you like your games as simple as possible, spin the reels of the
5-payline Haunted House. This somewhat spooky slot plays with the
typical vampire-related symbols and contains absolutely no special
features. Vacation Station comes with a unique set-up, displaying the
reels in a form of a 3x3 gird, and pays across 8 lines.
with a twist
launch Ocean Princess and experience the multi-spin feature. This
means that when you hit the spin button, only bottom line will
rotate. You will then have the option to hold one, two or all three
symbols, those that are held getting replicated across the entire
reel, while other positions spin.
is probably the most exciting section of Mansion’s library, with a
collection of 45 progressive jackpot games
and quite a few gems among them. I don’t even know where to start.
Perhaps with great new releases such as Superman II, Superman the
Movie, and Green Lantern? Or beautifully executed and unique Batman &
the Catwoman Cash and other slots from the same series? Or perhaps
the impressive Age of the Gods games?

you’ll be spoilt for choice. If you care more about the size of the
jackpot rather than themes, design and features, you might prefer to
launch Beach Life (over 2 million mark at the moment), Sweet Party (1
million+), or Gold Rally which is nearing the 1 million jackpot
Live Casino is not the biggest I’ve seen, but it does feature all
games I’d expect to find. Among them is Dual Roulette, an
innovative variation which allows me to play two tables at once, and
even duplicate the bets I have placed on one onto the other.
two Roulette tables simultaneously
Blackjack comes in handy when all seats at standard tables are
occupied, as it can accommodate an infinite number of players at the
same time. Live Casino Hold’em comes with an AA side bet which will
win if your first five cards include Aces or better. Last but not
least, the Casino hosts several Baccarat varieties, including No
Commission 7 Seat.
with a choice of close to 20
games, I’d probably go for the more unique ones, such as Age of
Gods or Multi Wheel, but if you prefer standard varieties, don’t
worry, they are all accounted for.
side bets in your standard Roulette
Among a dozen
variants you’ll find Blackjack Switch, Double Attack and Peek, and
those who are into a different kind of card game, get to pick among
several Poker games, Baccarat
3 Card Brag and Red Dog. No? You like getting surprised by the
outcome of a dice toss? Then test your skills and luck at Sic Bo or
gaming venue provides 15 Video Poker games, which is kind of modest.
I find the most interesting ones to be Mega Jacks and 2-Ways Royal,
mainly because they’re not featured that often.

Arcade contains about 30 games such as Keno, Bingo, Darts, Bonus
Bowling, and a variety of virtual games. A separate one displays 20+
Casino Customer Support – Good Reviews
piece of good news is there is someone to help you out 24/7, either
via Live Chat, email or phone. For the benefit of UK gamers, there is
a toll free number included. The quality of Mansion’s support
service is generally rated quite well, with only a smaller number of
users reporting having to wait for a
to a mobile device (in my case Android, but you can also use iOS),
and you’ll be met by same site structure and somewhat smaller
collection of games. It’s not a significant downgrade, though, as
Mansion Mobile still offers close to 200 of them, including 30+
progressives and several live games. I try launching a slot to see
how fast it loads and, while I don’t have to wait too long to start
playing, very soon the game begins to freeze. Not
Casino is kind of a mixed bag. Even if they only work with one
supplier, I quite like many of the games Playtech has produced and
which this site makes available. I always like being given a choice
and therefore appreciate promotional offers that allow me to pick one
which suits me best. The quality of direct contact is also important,
and rather than rely on one person’s opinion (me), I looked for and
got positive feed-back from a number of other Mansion visitors. And
then my enthusiasm quickly dies down when faced with payment terms.
Really, I don’t believe in motivating members to play more by
penalising the non-VIP ones, making them wait way too long to receive
the cash they won fair and
square. If you're a VIP player though, with the multi-thousand pound bonuses and reloads this is probably the best casino for you.
