The UK and Irish gambling markets are considered two of the most lucrative markets in the world. The gambling explosion in recent years has been so significant that it has caused a remarkable increase in problem gambling numbers that has legislators in both countries looking to clampdown on gambling related activities.
Legislators in Ireland have complained that existing gaming regulations are outdated and does not properly regulated the current gambling market. They are working on rolling out updated laws and establishing a new gambling regulator.
Even though Ireland is looking to make things more stringent, the Mansion brand is eager to launch its services in Ireland.
The Mansion brand is very popular in the United Kingdom and is now ready to expand into Ireland after it received its gaming license. The MansionBet casino is the most popular online casino under the Mansion brand but there are also other casinos such as Casino.com, SlotsHeaven and Mansion Casino.
Mansion will get its brand in front of the Irish immediately as it is set to sponsor a the UEFA European Championship Qualifier between Ireland and Gibraltar FC on June 10th.
The CEO of Mansion, Karel Manasco said that they fully understood how competitive the Irish gambling market is but were confident that with their 15 plus years of experience, brand reputation and market knowledge, they will be able to offer Irish players an impressive offering.
