Review of PortoFino Casino
As of November 21 2007, Portofino Casino has ceased operations. The website still exists though, so please don't make the mistake of signing up and depositing any money, if it is still possible.
Portofino Casino does not guarantee you anything exceptional, but what it does offer you is enough to give them a shot: a refined gambling experience that has no burdening hassles or slow cash-in’s. This, of course, is made possible also through the strong casino software offered by Portofino. The way the software is crafted, and the games themselves, are actually Portofino’s greatest advantage.
The software is provided by RTG (Real Time Gambling) Software. Yes, it is not as popular as Playtech and MicroGaming, but you ought to give it a try. It is not only pleasing to the eyes and ears; it is also capable of giving you a fun ride.
Once you enter the casino, you will find yourself immersed in a virtual casino environment redolent of actual casinos. The graphics and sounds will also remind you of an actual casino experience you are bound to enjoy.
The 200 games of Portofino are all fun to play and exciting. The more popular picks are the table games and video poker variations. But the progressive jackpots are also good; these offer big prizes. Most of the games regularly hold tournaments, so keep your eyes peeled open for such opportunities.
Promotions and Payout Rate
As a new player, you are given a 100% welcome bonus of up to $250. This is, in comparison with other online casinos, relatively big. You should use the opportunity to find out if Portofino suits your taste.
The payout percentage of Portofino is evaluated by an independent auditing system. This is nice to know; you can be sure that your winnings will actually be cashed-in.
Quality of Customer Support
Portofino’s customer support service can not be called exceptional. Still, their effort to reach and hear you, the customer, is still laudable. You can reach them through email or the toll-free telephone numbers. Fax and Live Chat are not available.
There are not too many ways by which you can deposit or withdraw your money in Portofino Casino. You might therefore have a problem if your preferred option is not available in Portofino. The available banking options are Bank Wire, NETeller, FirePay, and some major credit and debit cards.
