Mansion (Gibraltar) Limited is an online gambling company that operates online casino and poker websites. The company was founded in 2003 and has its headquarters in Gibraltar.[1]

History[edit]

Mansion was founded in 2003 by private investors who set up operations in Gibraltar.

Mansion’s first casino brand, MansionCasino.com was launched in 2004. In 2005, Mansion, in association with Fox, produced the Emmy-Award-winning Poker Dome Challenge series,[2] of which 26 episodes were broadcast over the Fox Network in the US and then internationally.

In 2007, Mansion acquired Casino.com and converted it from an online marketing site to an online gaming site.

In 2012 Mansion sponsored a bid to break the Guinness World Record for the longest DJ relay mix. The 12-hour attempt was successfully held at London’s Ministry of Sound nightclub, and featured over 100 different artists playing to generate proceeds for the One Life charity.

In 2013 and 2014, Mansion ran an advertisement on UK television promoting its mobile casino product.[4]

The company operates under a gaming license granted by the government of Gibraltar. Mansion owns and operates a number of gaming sites under the terms of the gaming license.

Founded in 2003, the company soon established itself worldwide with the launch of MansionCasino.com in July 2004 and its sister website MansionPoker.com shortly after.

Airing from 2006 to 2007, this Emmy Award-winning series flew selected online players to Las Vegas, where they competed in speed poker tournaments for a grand prize of $1,000,000 (USD). The popular show took place in front of a live studio audience and variously featured professional players including Tony G, Dennis Waterman and Perry Friedman. In 2013 and 2014, Mansion ran an advertisement on UK television, offering players free spins to trial the casino, particularly its mobile product. The commercial aired on a number of popular digital channels, including Dave, Sky Sports and ITV4.

Football Sponsorship[edit]

2006 also saw Mansion sign a high-profile deal to become the official shirt sponsors of Tottenham Hotspur F.C The company followed this in 2011 by agreeing to be Manchester City F.C.’s International Betting Partner.
