You have no doubt heard about or seen the name Mansion somewhere on sports television over the last decade, but my guess is you probably know very little about this company. Mansion is one of the largest gaming companies in Asia, servicing that market exclusively until it burst onto the global scene in the early 2000s.

To promote their company effectively to very different clientele, the company has several online gaming sites. The one I am reviewing today is a more Asian-focused site, Mansion88 (aka M88).


About Mansion88

As I mentioned, the company has been around in land-based gaming for a long time, but in the early 2000s, they started adding online sites to their portfolio. This site in particular launched in 2007, after the events that led to the enactment of UIGEA in the United States in 2006.

Mansion themselves are backed by very deep pockets. This is why you will see their name and logo emblazoned across the chests of many sports teams’ jerseys in Europe and Asia. The good news for our readers is that having those deep pockets means you should feel totally comfortable with your deposits being safe when playing at this site.

As for licensing, the company is licensed by the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority. If you have not heard of this regulatory jurisdiction, I am not surprised: it is typically reserved for Asian companies focused on taking Asian players. At this time, the site is not licensed by any other jurisdiction.

Who Can Play at the Casino?

Being licensed by the Cagayan Economic Zone Authority gives M88 credibility in the Asian market, while also allowing them to take players from around the globe. While they have brands like Mansion.com to service other countries as well, there is no reason not to promote this Asian-influenced site to Asians who live outside the zone.

Some countries cannot access this site for real money. Making this decision allows Mansion88 to continue some land-based arrangements that are excellent uses of their marketing dollars. If you live in one of these countries, you are not allowed to play for real money at Mansion88:

  • Philippines
  • Taiwan
  • The United States of America
  • Singapore
  • Hong Kong
  • United Kingdom
  • France
  • Guadeloupe
  • Guyana
  • Martinique
  • Réunion

Software Suppliers

Mansion88 uses their clout in the gaming industry to create partnerships with some of the top online casino software suppliers. Have a look at the number of partners they currently have for the casino alone:

  • Playtech
  • Microgaming
  • Pragmatic Play
  • Genesis Gaming
  • iSoftBet
  • Habanero
  • GamesOS
  • Opus Gaming

An interesting thing to note here is that when you go to their website, you will see a tab solely for the Playtech games; this is not a usual practice for an online casino. I assume the company has some sort of preferred arrangement with Playtech to promote their games a little more heavily internally. Whatever the reason, it is still effortless to access all the games through their Instant Play games, which are available via your PC or mobile browsers. The site is also available via downloads for PC, Mac and mobile – more on that in a minute.

The company has other providers for their poker software and sportsbook platform as well; I will discuss those when I dig deeper into the offering.

The Good Stuff

Incredibly organized website

Good Stuff

When a company offers multiple products with many different software providers, it can sometimes be little overwhelming for players. This is not the case with M88. Right from the first time I went to the website, I was very impressed with the navigation I found. There is a button on the left-hand side of the page which outlines all the available downloads for both your PC and mobile (they have some native apps that are available in countries where they are legal). This in itself was fantastic, but then when you add in the ability to sort all the casino games by the provider, it becomes sublime.

Great set of Promotions

The marketing team at Mansion have outdone themselves with all the promotions they have listed on their site. Not only are they broken down into each category so you can easily find a promotion that suits the game you are playing, but the promotions, while straightforward, are plentiful. There are many reasons to be a loyal player at this site.

The Bad Stuff

Promotion Limitations

Bad Stuff

While I love the promotions that are listed on the site, it is evident that the company is focusing on Asian players, as when I click on several of the offers, I see that they are restricted to certain Asian countries only. When I see this, my first reaction is to be angry; when I calm down, I look for options available to me, as well as sending an email to support to find out if there is anything they can do to allow me to access these promotions. You should do the same; often the casino will at least offer you a special bonus to keep you happy.

Ridiculous Conversion Rates for Comp Points

While I applaud the casino for having a comp program that allows players to redeem for physical goods (see further down this page), I am astounded at the conversion rates for these points. In many cases, it might just be cheaper for me to FLY to Asia and buy the product and return home!

Sportsbook

I will start the review of the games with the M88 Sportsbook. If you love to make wagers on sports from all around the world, then you are in luck with this site. What may be a bit confusing for you when you get to the site is that there are two tabs for sports – mSports and Sports. Both of these will take you to a sportsbook where you can find odds for all the major sports (and many minor ones as well). The only difference I seem to be able to find is that the mSports tab does not include Virtual sports as a betting option. I guess one of their partners does not have those games in their arsenal; not to worry, between the two tabs all of your betting desires are covered.

When it comes to the sports you can actively bet on, there are many to choose from. Here’s just a sample of what I found on the site:

  • American Football
  • Soccer
  • Basketball
  • Baseball
  • Volleyball
  • E-sports
  • Darts
  • Cricket
  • Motorsports
  • Snooker/pool
  • Rugby
  • Virtual sports
  • Number game

There were also other sports like Muay Thai that are available when matches are being held. One interesting game to bet on if you haven’t before is the Number Game; it is like a hybrid of roulette and Keno, without a table or ball spinning. There are dozens of these games going off every minute, so it does provide a great rush for gamblers.

The odds are listed in decimal format, so if you are used to point spreads for games like American Football, you will need to take that into consideration when you head over to place a wager. There are also many sports on which you can place in-action bets; these Live Betting sports give you the chance to make more bets without having to wait for a match to complete, which is great especially for sports like tennis and soccer where there isn’t a lot of action.

Casino Game Selection

With this many software providers involved, the amount of content available at Mansion88 for casino players is vast. As I mentioned before, if you are interested in playing with a certain provider (maybe you like their graphics or are superstitious) then you can filter the games by the vendor. You also have the option of filtering by what is most popular, or newest games in the lobby. Any way you slice them up, you have hundreds of great games available at your disposal; let’s have a look at what’s there for you.

Slots

Slots games are where you are going to notice the most differences between providers. While the game is the same, each provider will bring different graphics, pay lines, bonus screens and more to the game design. You also have the option of playing one of the many progressive jackpot games that the casino offers; at last check, there were over 8 million USD available to be won!

Here is just a small selection of the great slots games you will find at this casino:

  • Hot KTV
  • Adventures in Wonderland Deluxe
  • Time for a Deal
  • Age of the Gods: Goddess of Wisdom
  • Rocky
  • John Wayne

  • Terminator 2
  • Mega Moolah
  • King Cachalot
  • Treasure Nile
  • Major Millions

  • Bar Bar Black Sheep
  • Lucky Twins
  • Agent Jane Blonde
  • Thunderstruck
  • Game of Thrones
  • Stardust
  • Retro Reels

Table Games

This is the section of this casino that I like the most. Having so many different software providers means you are going to find multiple versions of your favorite games; these will be set at different speeds, may have different variants, and will definitely offer a change of looks for those of you who get bored of looking at the same table. I personally love that I can find many versions of baccarat to play; this Asian specialty can be very boring to play after a while so switching up the tables is a bonus.

Check out the Table Games you can play at Mansion88:

  • 3-Card Brag
  • American Blackjack
  • American Roulette
  • Atlantic City Blackjack
  • Baccarat
  • Blackjack 3-Hand
  • Blackjack Pro
  • Blackjack Surrender
  • Blackjack Switch
  • Casino Hold’em
  • Casino War
  • Craps
  • Cyberstud Poker
  • Double Exposure BJ
  • European Roulette
  • French Roulette
  • High Limit European BJ
  • Multihand Blackjack
  • Multi-Wheel Roulette
  • Pai Gow Poker
  • Perfect Blackjack
  • Premier Roulette
  • Roulette Crystal
  • Roulette Pro
  • Roulette Titanium
  • Royale Blackjack
  • Sicbo
  • Spanish Blackjack
  • Triple Pocket Holdem

Video Poker

Video Poker tends to be more popular in North America than in Asia, so I am surprised to see this many variants available at Mansion88. I am a big fan of playing games with multi-hand options, all the way up to the crazy 100 hand games; there is one of these games at this casino, and you can only imagine how much time I spent trying to hit a Royal Flush here!

Check out all your video poker choices:

  • 10 Line Jacks or Better
  • 10-Line Deuces Wild
  • 10-Line Joker Wild
  • 50 Line Jacks or Better
  • Aces & Eights 1, 5, 10, 50, 100-Hands
  • Aces & Faces
  • All American
  • Deuces & Joker
  • Deuces & Joker
  • Deuces Wild
  • Double Double Bonus
  • Jacks or Better
  • Jacks or Better
  • Joker Poker

Live Dealer Casino

It was the Asian market that first embraced Live Dealer games; playing against a human versus the computer gives the impression of playing in a land-based casino while sitting in the comfort of your own home. M88 offers two different Live Dealer products; the benefit of this is being able to multi-table the live games if you wish.

You can try the following games against a dealer broadcasting from a studio:

  • Sic Bo
  • Blackjack
  • Casino Hold’em
  • Baccarat
  • Blackjack
  • Roulette
  • Three Card Poker

Specialty Games

I will admit that I NEVER play these games, either live or online. They offer terrible player odds, and if I am spending my hard-earned cash, I want the best odds to come home a winner. However, these games are very popular with a recreational gambler, so Mansion gives you a chance to try your luck in these games:

  • 3 Clowns Scratch
  • Basebull Scratch
  • Cash Fish
  • Cashblox
  • Classic Slots Scratch
  • Darts
  • Formula Scratch
  • Four By Four
  • Go Monkey
  • Hexaline
  • Keno
  • Magic Pot Scratch
  • Monkey Keno
  • Monsters Scratch
  • Non-Stop Party Scratch
  • Potshot
  • Premier Racing
  • Rubik’s Riches
  • Soccer Shot
  • Sparkle Ladies
  • Super Bonus Bingo
  • Virtual Champions
  • Virtual Legends
  • Virtual World Cup

Poker

Mansion made a big splash into the global poker market in 2005 when they built a studio in Las Vegas to film and distribute poker events featuring qualifiers from their poker site. While the changes in the legal climate in 2006 derailed their efforts in the U.S., that did not stop the company from keeping their online poker product alive for players who were still allowed to play.

Today, Mansion88 offers two separate poker platforms; Microgaming’s Poker Network, which services most of their global audience, and IDN Poker, which is an Asian-facing network which features thousands of concurrent players. Both options offer you cash games and tournaments to play, featuring guaranteed events, progressive sit and gos and Bad Beat Jackpots.

You will also find some other games like Dominoes available on the IDN poker client; personally, I love the idea of playing dominoes for real money!

Promotions

With this many games to choose from, you may not even care about what promotions are available at this site. I am here to tell you that is a foolish way of thinking; every promotion gives you the chance to improve your profit margin, which in many cases can be the difference between being a winning or losing player.

You can see all the available offers on the promotions page of the site; I am going to cover a couple that stuck out to me in a little more detail.

Welcome Bonus

There are several Welcome Bonuses to choose from at this site. Many of them are restricted by game, by the vendor or by country of origin, but all in all, I like the fact that there are many options to choose from. Personally, I would choose the sportsbook option; I feel I get more value out of trying to collect my bonus on a sports bet than playing Table Games or slots. For the most part, the Welcome Bonuses are 100% match bonuses to a maximum of about $100. There is a special Playtech Slots Welcome Bonus of 300% to $100.

The wagering requirements for these bonuses range between 20x and 25x the Deposit+Bonus. This number is a little on the high side compared to many of their competitors; it is typically a sign of a casino that isn’t worried about new players as much as they are about keeping you loyal after your first session.

Weekly Rebates

The site is very focused on rebates as a way to keep you as a loyal player. As opposed to bonuses that you get up front for making a deposit, in this scenario you are given a rebate on your play at the end of a week. What I really like about this promotion is that it is based on the handle (some bets you make), not your profit or loss. Unlike a Cashback promotions which rewards only losing players, these rebates offer you between 0.3% and 1% on your total bets on a weekly basis. Of course, there are some limitations to what games qualify, however, there is no maximum on the amount of rebate you can claim. If you are like me and like to have extended sessions online, then this is a very attractive promotion to take advantage of.

Banking

As the site is primarily Asian-focused, it is not at all surprising to see a list of payment options you probably haven’t seen before. Don’t worry, they do offer a couple methods that most European and North American gamblers are used to; getting your money to and from the site will not be an issue.

  • Help2Pay

Comp Program

The Mansion88 Comp Program, called Mansion Rewards, is a comprehensive program that allows you to earn points for playing their games for real money, then exchange those points for a wide range of products or for cash back into your account.

In an attempt to allow players to earn points across all their products (except poker), the site uses the following calculation for earning points:

Quick & Easy rules of earning points! For every USD 80* (or equivalent currency) wager in Live Casino and USD 60* (or equivalent currency) wager in mSports / Sports / Casino / Playtech / Keno / Number Games / Virtual Sports you will receive 1 (One) M88 Point.

This is a little hefty compared to the majority of online casinos I have reviewed, but I give them credit for trying to accommodate all players with one rate.

When it comes time to redeem your points, you can head to their Rewards Store, where you will see options from Free Bets to electronics to Sporting Equipment. The conversion rate, as I mentioned, it pretty high; for example, you could redeem for an iPhone 7 for almost 100,000 points. At the earning rate, it could take you years to accumulate that many points. My recommendation is to take the Cash and Free bets as you can redeem for them much faster.

VIP Program

The Mansion Prestige Club is a very well designed, comprehensive VIP program tailored to suit the needs of their most loyal and highest value players. The club has several tiers to it, allowing you to move freely between them assuming you meet the minimum qualifications. The minimum qualification is total bets of $30,500.

Once you enter into the Prestige Club, you receive a full scope of benefits. Have a look at all the rewards members are given:

Overall, I am very pleased with what I see from this VIP Program; Mansion clearly knows how to treat their best customers.

Customer Service

Mansion88 offers a full suite of options for Customer Support. Starting with email, the company has several specific email addresses depending on what is the issue. I like that as it tends to speed up the response time a little bit by sending queries to staff most knowledgeable on the topics.

You can also give the casino a call, but bear in mind that there is no toll-free option so you will be paying long distance fees to their support office in Malaysia. I would recommend using either the Live Chat option or by contacting them on WhatsApp (which is an excellent display of how the site is managing communication by the times).

Would I Play at Mansion88?

There is a lot to love about this site. Let’s start with the fact that you have access to Sports, Casino, Live Casino, Poker, Bingo and Lottery all from one centralized account; that is incredibly convenient. The casino features games from multiple providers, many of which are available to play via your tablet or mobile phone with ease. I don’t like that the promotions are mainly restricted to Asian countries, but I can take advantage of their VIP program instead. Their comp program has some great products available for redemption. However, the conversion rate for points means it is very tough to acquire those goods (please email us if you have managed to get any electronics from them!). All in all, this is an excellent site form a very professional company, so there is no reason for me not to recommend them to you if you are living in a country where you can access the games for real money.
