“Good IPT/EPT experience”

The Casino at Portomaso
Attraction details
Reviewed October 31, 2015

Visited during the IPT and EPT poker events. At least at that time there was also good poker cash games available. Not too expensive drinks. Also healthy food options but might had been only because of the IPT/EPT, not sure.

We went to the casino, played a bit and decided the restaurant looked so nice we should eat there!
We had to register to join the casino in order to gain entry. Photo ID needed for this.
The restaurant looked quite plush and capable of holding 'posh' functions.
The menu selection was good standard stuff. My wife had the lamb shank and I had seabass cooked in a paperbag. Very enjoyable.
The only surprising thing for me is that we didn't make it back for a second meal but there is only so much one can do in a week. Certainly would have gone there again if we'd stayed for 10 days.

This casino probably won't raise your blood pressure as you walk in, but if you are a poker player you should be happy.

Already had membership here as we joined on our last trip in 2014. Spent a nice hour to hour and a half on each of 4 evenings after dinner. My wife and I enjoyed it very much, especially as between us we won just over 200 Euros, over the 4 nights. No guarantees of winning, but the place is welcoming and enjoyable if you want a safe little gamble on the Roulette table or Slots. Poker room available but too scary for us!
The Casino has a restaurant, but we didn't try it. Free drinks brought around to those gambling by servers, nice touch.
Not large or flashy, like Las Vegas, but better chance of winning!!!

You want Vegas? Go to Vegas. This is Malta and the spirit of Malta is in "The Casino Portomaso". It is nicely lit, private yet open. It is relaxed, has sports bets, seating for relaxing, great bar, smoking room, slots, tables... Great all round for a good night out.
You get soft drink free and toasted sandwich if you are playing too.
Great place to come, soak up the environment and feel a little lucky?:)
Not really a strict dress code, you do need to register (passport/ID) on first visit - It is a casino, there are rules. But ask any staff there and they will help, super friendly and helpful :)
