Mansion Group has confirmed that five of its leading casino brands are set to exit the German online gambling market. The software and igaming provisions provider has withdrawn German online casino services for Mansion Casino, Slots Heaven, Les A Casino, Casino.com and Club777.
The Playtech powered casino operator confirmed the closure of services for these five brands on 1 February.
iAffiliates the marketing and acquisition arm of five withdrawing casinos, sent out a company statement on 29 January warning affiliate and media partners of the changes in policy regarding German operations.
The iAffiliates statement read “This closer ONLY affects players based in Germany; German-speaking players from other countries are not affected by these restrictions. All accounts will have to be stopped no later than January 30th, 2015”.
Mansion Group senior management had decided to comply with German federal laws regarding online gambling. Industry news reports have suggested that the operator is unlikely to seek a German online gambling licence from the Hesse Ministry.
