Portugal’s First Licensed Online Casino Now Live

Portugal’s First Licensed Online Casino Now Live

The first licensed online casino in Portugal is now live as a result of the partnership between online casino solutions provider and member of Ardent Group, GAMING1, with European casino operator Stanley Ho’s Portuguese division, Estoril Sol.

The casino, EstorilSolCasinos.pt, officially launched on July 27, 2016 in full compliance with Portuguese legal and regulatory requirements.

Operating on GAMING1’s mobile and desktop platforms, Estoril Sol Casinos started off with just 15 Video Slot Games, one Blackjack game and two Roulette variations. Not to worry though, additional games are scheduled for integration over the next several weeks.

CEO of GAMING1, Sylvain Boniver, said, “The creation of this joint venture demonstrates GAMING1’s strength as an all-round partner, not just a provider.''

We are passionate about partnering with land-based operators who want to put their business online, as this really is part of our DNA and what makes us stand out from the rest of the industry. ''

Thanks to our partnership model, the Estoril Sol Group benefits from the extensive expertise and involvement of the entire GAMING1 team.'' 

It’s a very proud moment for us to launch the first licensed website to offer legal online casino in Portugal and together we hold all the aces to move forward in this exciting market.”

Vieira Coelho, Executive Director for Estoril Sol, added, “We’ve been very impressed with GAMING1’s products and services and we’re really excited to be launching this joint venture with them.'' 

We like to enter into partnerships with companies and GAMING1 are the perfect partner for us to really target the Portuguese online casino market.”

GAMING1 international development director, Gérard El Allaf, commented, “Right from the start there was a clear synergy between Portugal’s number one land-based operator and GAMING1.'' 

By combining the reputation of a group such as Estoril Sol, and its knowledge of the Portuguese market, with the know-how of GAMING1’s online specialists, we have the best tools at our disposal to capitalise on this fantastic opportunity with the online casino market in Portugal.

“The creation of this joint venture demonstrates GAMING1’s strength as an all-round partner, not just a provider”

  • Congrats Carlos, I didn't know that Portugal lacked any legal on-line casinos, seems unbelievable especially considering your countries forward-thinking laws with regards to drugs and substance abuse. I just hope that they turn out to be decent and worth playing with, but as they are clearly state-sanctioned and regulated, you will hopefully be good to go. Best of luck!
  • I am happy for you Carlos. I sure wish they would hurry and make one legit for Illinois by golly. I guess this state is too corrupt for a casino on line. The pols haven't figured out a way to cheat the system yet I guess
  • Finnally a legit online casino for Portuguese players.I was growing worry because we had only 2 legal sportsbet site.Now going to check this online casino.
