Playtech to power Mansion sportsbook launch
Gambling solutions giant Playtech has agreed a deal to launch its digital sportsbook product with Casino.com, the flagship brand of igaming operator Mansion Group.
Under the deal, Casino.com will deploy Playtech's sportsbook solution, as well as the supplier's virtual sports offering, featuring a range of games based on ball and racing sports.
The agreement comes after Playtech in January signed a five-year extension to its existing agreement with Mansion, taking the partnership through to at least 2025.
“We are very excited to grow our long-standing partnership with Playtech, their proven expertise enables us to offer the ultimate experience for our players,” Mansion chief executive Karel Manasco said.
“The addition of their digital sportsbook will provide our customers with a seamless, multi-gaming platform; the very best in online gaming, all under one roof.”
The extended deal in January also saw Playtech add a new dedicated casino tab on the Casino.com brand, with Mansion to offer a bespoke, branded live casino product, broadcast from Playtech’s Eurolive facility.
Playtech’s chief operating officer Shimon Akad added: “This is a further step in the evolution of our strong long-term partnership, and we are excited to be part of their growth.
“Together, we can support them in delivering an even more personalised, responsible player experience, and look forward to seeing continued success across markets in the coming years.”
Earlier this week, the Great Britain Gambling Commission launched an investigation into M88 and Mansion Europe, while Premier League club AFC Bournemouth terminated a sponsorship deal with the former.
A Commission spokesperson said that while the operating licences held for each brand had not been revoked, it was investigating “various aspects” of each business' “model and operations”.
Mansion Europe held a remote betting and casino licence, under which it operated the Mansion Bet brand, as well as Casino.com and Slots Heaven.
