Gambling was already present in Portorož in the times of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. The first gambling games were organized in the villa San Lorenzo, and were also combined with more serious events such as business meetings. In a way, gambling remains the essence of Portorož. They are the main activity, the main source of income and also the main tourist attraction in Portorož. (source)
The leading Portorož company that was the owner of the Palace hotel, the Portorose Group, relocated their head office from Trieste to Vienna in 1911. In 1919, the ownership of the group changed hands from the Austro-German to the Italian shipping family Cosulich. The entrepreneurial brothers Cosulich re-launched the Portorož tourism with their ambitious plans. Even though all of the Portorož hotels were operating at a loss at first, the Cosulich family soon bought the Riviera hotel as well. Owning the Palace hotel and the villa San Lorenzo, they were able to manage the majority of the residential facilities around. The number of visitors started quickly dropping after the First World War. (source)
The story continued after the war in the 60s. Since then, the Portorož casinos had many different owners.
