Don't even think to visit this place
Aug 2021 • Couples
We went there on Saturday night. We were waiting 30 minutes for the registration and the ladies in the office just ignored us and starting registrating other customers and of course we left. I don't believe that is normal to wait more than 30 minutes to enter a casino. As other people there informed us in the other casinos the registration procedure is very fast. So don't miss time and go there. Just find another casino.

Literally the worst casino to visit in Malta. Took over an hour to register and it doesn’t even compare the the quality of Dragonara. Don’t waste your time

False information
Oct 2020
Given the current situation, correct and updated information is a must. Portomaso fail to give you this.

They haven't managed to update their poker page with correct information the last few months, and their poker schedule is a big swing and a miss, as they haven't managed to start their announced tourneys on time whilst I've been here (since 2017).

The poker room staff is heavily in favour of the regulars, and waiting lists are not to be trusted, as it's not "first come first served", but more like who you know.

Stay clear, there are better options on this piece of island.

In need for a renovation especially the chairs! Friendly staff and good service, the slot machines are some new and some very old.

Malta Poker Festival

Thanks guys. We had a great time at the Festival. Superbly run tournaments, good food and drink service and plenty of action in the cash games. Lovely location in St Julians too. We'll be back next year.

I'm not a gambling fan and I went to Casino at Portomaso out of curiosity. The setting is luxurious and a nice atmosphere.

Not the best in the area
Oct 2019
This was our 3rd casino we visited during our stay and was by far, the least welcoming and underwhelming.
Slot machines were okay, but had the fewest locally. Small bar area with grumpy unattentive staff and when my machine went wrong, it took over 30 minutes to get someone to fix it. Basic decor and a little "dingey". Would not go back

Nice casino but...
Aug 2019 • Solo
First:
- very friendly staff
- good atmosphere
- very nice place
- good poker tournaments BI/GTD for turist
- staff is profesional and fast, but:

- local players talk matlese in the game, when i ask for english language (what is just one oficial language in casino) they started be very offensive. Floor tryed solve this, but he has not respekt in the pokerroom (what i dont understand). Local players speak with you like “if you dont like maltese get out back to your country” then they told me something like “f*ck you” (in this moment started be floor strict - thank you), but he couldnt solve problem about language during the game (this is for me more important like someone who tell me “f*ck you”).

Other thing what i didnt understand is training of new dealer. Okay, i know they have to learn, but: if you keep this dealer on the table 2 lvls, and every single game is 5 minutes because dealer dont know, this is problém.

From the begining of tournament when you have 200bb - okay, but in the phase when avg is 20bb is table with this dealer very disadvantaged.

So, i like this casino, employees know what they are doing, everyone is really friendly, you feel there good, for turist perfect choice.

Best Casino on the Island
Apr 2019 • Couples
This place is close to where I live so it has that added closeness. Out of all the casino's in Malta, I do favour this one. They have nice tables friendly staff and you can organise a private event and they are happy to assist. Drinks are reasonably priced and the game selection is good.
