Land-based casino operator Estoril Sol has been awarded the first online gaming license for Portugal and has teamed up with platform provider Gaming1 to launch the new EstorilSolCasinos.pt domain.

The firm behind the European nation's Casino Estoril, Casino Da Povoa and Casino Lisboa, Estoril Sol revealed that EstorilSolCasinos.pt has premiered offering desktop and mobile online casino players a selection of 15 Gaming1-developed video slots alongside two roulette games and one blackjack title with further additions planned ‘in the coming weeks’.

“We’ve been very impressed with Gaming1’s products and services and we’re really excited to be launching this joint venture with it,” said Vieira Coelho, Executive Director for Estoril Sol.

“We like to enter into partnerships with companies and Gaming1 is the perfect partner for us to really target the Portuguese online casino market.”

For its part, Gaming1 is the business-to-business subsidiary of Belgian online casino operator Groupe Ardent, which is behind sites including Casino777.be, and declared that EstorilSolCasinos.pt utilises a state-of-the-art platform offering game content that is fully compliant with Portuguese regulations.

“The creation of this joint venture demonstrates Gaming1’s strength as an all-round partner [and] not just a provider,” said Sylvain Boniver, Chief Executive Officer for Gaming1.

“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, Estoril Sol 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 [games] in Portugal and together we hold all the aces to move forward in this exciting market.”
