Portugal’s Growing Gaming Industry

PORTUGAL’S GROWING GAMING INDUSTRYPortugal has been known for many great things over the years. The weather is excellent, and so are the beaches.

And Portugal is, of course, the birthplace of footballing megastar Cristiano Ronaldo. But, recently, the country has started to make moves on another front, and that's gaming.

It’s fair to say that gaming and gambling are a pastime enjoyed by millions of people worldwide daily. So, there’s nothing new in terms of playing at casinos or placing bets on the sporting action taking place being a thing. However, in Portugal’s case, you could suggest it’s dreaming bigger than being an everyday country in this respect. It’s actually quickly turning itself into a gambling and gaming hub, which is something that not many countries have the money to achieve, especially in the amount of time Portugal is doing so.

It makes a lot of sense when you take a closer look at Portugal and its potential to become a superhub where gaming and gambling are concerned. For example, not only are sports such as football massively popular in the country, golfers flock from all over the world to play at some of the pristine course areas such as the Algarve have to offer. Moreover, sports betting evidently very much goes hand in hand with Portugal. So it’s no surprise to see major players such as Entain, who continue to have substantial success with their UK online casino arm PartyCasino, take control of sports betting operator Bet.pt.

And it's not just sports betting where Portugal is quickly gaining a foothold in the market; it's doing so where casinos are concerned too. With so many holidaymakers who flock to the Algarve, for example. And with many of them opting to buy holiday homes in the area, it means that establishments such as Casino Vilamoura, Hotel Algarve Casino and Casino Monte Gordo have become increasingly popular. Yes, this would have been the case with just Portuguese nationals and citizens of the country involved, but when you add those who holiday in the country, it shows the full scale of the potential casino has.

Again, using Entain as an example, the company which owns gaming brands such as PartyCasino, playing online is also popular in the country. So, gamblers or those with a penchant for gaming don’t necessarily have to head to one of the local land-based casino venues to enjoy the action. Instead, they can log on to an online casino while they’re at the beach, on the golf course, or in one of the many excellent bars.

You could say that Portugal, as a country, has all the bases covered as it continues to grow in the gaming and gambling world. The potential is there for all to see, and now big operators are beginning to take note. It won’t be long before the sun-soaked European country becomes another hub for sports betting and casino.

Once upon a time I would meet a tennant outside the casino to collect the rent because he would leave the casino penniless, only leaving when the money ran out, his family abandoned him and he is now homeless, the future of Portugal is upon us,
