Portomaso Gaming are headquartered in Portamaso, Malta where they hold (via Malta registered company Grinder Ltd), a class 4 licence to offer their platform to approved online operators.

If you happen across an operator offering Portomaso’s live games, they will invariably be labelled ‘Portomaso’. Or you will see the PortomasoGaming.com logo in the footer alongside other platforms used by that operator.

But this platform is a joint effort, with Grinder Ltd relying on the technical expertise of Italian casino software house Wirex to develop all aspects of game capture and delivery. It is essentially a Wirex developed live games platform. Clear as mud?

Development details aside, these are fun games to play. Not a massive game (baccarat, blackjack, roulette only) or table range but variety in terms of where the games are delivered from:

  • purpose built live dealer studios within the Portomaso Casino in Malta (blackjack and roulette tables, not offered 24/7);
  • from the general casino floor within the Portomaso Casino in Malta (Punto Banco baccarat and roulette, offered 24/7); and
  • from the general casino floor within the Oracle Casino in Malta (Punto Banco baccarat and roulette, offered 24/7)

And they are delivered very nicely, for PC play at least.
