Mansionbet slow-pay complaints
Three Mansion (SBR rating B-) players file slow-pay complaints. Mansion has blamed technical issues and a bank change for the delay.
Player (12/11/2006): I’m waiting on a $5800+ payout on my account from Mansion.com. The request was made last Tuesday. On Friday I called to check on the status, they told me I needed to forward my Swift number for the transaction to be processed. Then on Friday they told me it was going to be processed today (monday). Today, I contact them and they tell me the delay is due to them changing banks – and that I should receive the money by the end of the week. The site says it normally takes 2 business days. I am very nervous.
Mansionbet switched from Natwest Bank, an RBS Group company that owns other banks based in the United States, to German-based Wirecard Bank AG. Players’ best option may be Neteller as Mansion begins working with its new financial service.
Mansion closes for US
Mansion (SBR rating B-) closes its sportsbook and casino to players residing in the US. Mansion’s most popular offering is its low-margin sports exchange betting platform, which will remain open for all clients. However, Mansionbet management tells SBR that they will no longer employ market makers to seed the exchange and there may be a substantial decline in wagering activity. The company aims to offer true peer-to-peer trading. SBR has downgraded Mansion to B- due to customer service issues, reduced offerings, and complaints of canceled wagers without alerting players through email.
