Mansion Casino is, of course, a sister site to the famous Mansion Poker Room and consequently has alot to live up to – but this site easily does justice to the brand, appealing to male and female players alike with a reassuring yet enticing presentation that delivers on every front.
Eligibility and Jurisdiction
The site is operated by Mansion Online Casino Ltd, licenced in Gibraltar. Players are not accepted from: Israel, France, Estonia, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Hong Kong, the United States of America or Singapore.
Software and Graphics
Games-wise this is a classic Playtech site, so there’s download and online versions with additional slots if you download, but otherwise a very playable online offering. Execution is fast – lightening fast if you download first: just play your favourites whilst letting the rest of the games pour into your machine in the background and before you know it you’ll have everything on tap.
Visually, it’s evident that someone at Mansion likes beige: The whole site is infused with a colour scheme that almost belongs in a different decade, yet somehow seems to work here. It’s certainly unusual, and portrays an almost perverse kind of quiet confidence in an industry where deviating from green or red to a milder colour is considered a radical move. We loved it.
There’s 100-odd games online with an extra 50 or so if you download. Sensibly, they’ve chosen to showcase Kong, Rocky, X-Men, Iron Man 2 and Pink Panther, along with the one and only 3d Roulette – rapidly becoming known as the non-Roulette players’ guilty pleasure due to it’s unparalleled graphics.
Needless to say there’s also a live room with Baccarat, Roulette and Blackjack, along with the full quota of scratchcard, Keno and arcade games – we couldn’t see anything missing from the current Playtech catalogue at all.
The table games reflect Playtech’s high visual and sound standards, though we were particularly impressed that they’ve distinguished themselves from all the other Playtech sites out there by customising the colour scheme and using classy-sounding English voices for the croupiers. This is clearly a site aimed squarely at both sexes so it’s important that the table games are of the highest quality in every respect – and they very much are.
Bonuses and Promotions
Mansion’s welcome bonus applies to players using the download version, and is a generous 100% up to £300, with a wagering requirement multiple of 40 on slots, scratchcard and arcade games. That means a deposit of £300 will be fully matched giving you £600 to play with, and you’ll need to wager £24000 prior to withdrawal. There’s also a 25% reload bonus every Tuesday, a $50 refer-a-friend scheme and an intriguing scheme where players are emailed a secret wagering target to hit which , when met, will unlock additional bonuses. There’s a host of other seasonal one-offs available as well, so keep an eye on the promotions page as there’s always something new about to be launched.
You can deposit by credit card (various), Moneybookers, Neteller, Entropay, UKash, Paysafecard, Click and Buy, Citadel, Eco, Click2Pay or Webmoney. Withdrawals take between 1 and 8 working days plus a pending period which varies according to your VIP status.
24 hour support is available via telephone (0800 376 8375), email (web form on site) or live chat.
Mansion claim to have a commitment to adding value wherever possible to retain players, and it shows. Their promotions page is constantly kept topped-up with all sorts of interesting opportunities to keep you coming back, and having used their customer service for this review we can confirm that they’re every bit as attentive and concerned about your experience with them as they say. If you’re a casual or semi-casual player who’ll be returning more than half a dozen times then we’d recommend downloading a decent Playtech installation, and Mansion stands firmly in the top tier of casinos that allow you to do this.
