Choosing to focus more on the live casino gaming, Portomaso Gaming was set up in 2007 in one of the world’s gaming capitals, Malta. Like all software developers, one of the biggest aims of the company was to develop a solid reputation on which to build its future and this has been done by continually producing innovative products which compete against the likes of other mid-level providers such as Realtime Gaming.
They have two land based casinos from which they stream live games, both of which are well worth a visit should you visit Malta as the live stream tables are mixed in with the regular table on the casino floor. This also gives the added extra unique feature of players being able to play in person and online at the same time.

Portomaso have focused mainly on live dealer games so in that respect the software is quite simplistic in its approach with a classic casino layout. You will see the dealer and the casino with the live play happening in real time. When playing Roulette, you’ll have a shot of the roulette wheel and the dealer who will also explain what is happening at that time. Live chat is also a great feature that is available, as you can chat with the dealer adding more to the real life casino experience. There is currently no demo site which is a shame, but it gives you a good excuse to visit their sites and try out the games for yourself.
In more recent years, Portomaso Gaming have started to develop some more innovative slot games which feature high quality graphics and sounds, as well as unique features that you would expect from a software developer of this level. These slots includes titles such as: Crazy Motors, Fruit Shop, Baker Street Adventures and Careless Zombies.
When it comes to the technical stuff, Portomaso have ensured their games are developed using state of the art technology for both the games themselves and the back end management features. HTML5 software is used, allowing for maximum flexibility as this can be used and integrated with many other platforms and browsers. This means that all games can be played via desktop browsers, downloads and mobile apps which are compatible on both iOS, Windows and Android devices.
For operators, the Portomaso software includes management features such as player profiling, bonus management, risk management plus and integrated messaging system.
When it comes to security and fairness, for the live dealer games, Portomaso employ the same stringent rules you would expect from any reputable land based casinos. Cameras monitor the floor and the tables to ensure cards aren’t tampered with, dealers change shifts and cards are regularly changed.
For the slot games, an RNG (random number generator) is used which has been tested and certified by the Maltese Lottery and Gaming Authority which means both players and operators can rest assured that all of Portomaso’s games are 100% secure and fair.
Portomaso Gaming now have their feet firmly under the table and provide players and operators with a great choice of live streamed games, unique slots and animated table games that incorporate state of the art front and back end functionality. They are sure to be a name that will remain in the industry for some time to come.
