Great news for French poker players

Tags: ARJEL, Autorité de Régulation des Jeux En Lignee, france, full tilt, gaming license, pkr.
Posted on 29 July 2010 by "T".

For almost 3 years, the online gambling market in France was owned by a state run monopoly. In April this year, a law was passed to allow for regulated gaming, opening up the market to foreign operators who follow strict guidelines and rules. In June, 11 sites received a license, followed by another 7 sites. On Monday, ARJEL (Autorité de Régulation des Jeux En Lignee - Authority of Regulation of Online Games) issued 9 new licenses to companies that want to offer internet gambling services to French customers (Full Tilt and PKR are 2 of the biggest sites among these 11).

In total, 27 sites foreign sites now have received a license to operate in France. Hopefully more countries with gambling monopoly will follow in France's footsteps and start issuing licenses to foreign betting companies.

That article says "in June" it was in July that PKR banned the French. I am pretty sure that it's just referring to the licenses for the.fr sites.

My understanding is they are at this point, indefinitely banned from PKR.

It seems that Poker is now very popular in France...more than ever

I'm really impressed that Pokerstars.fr has a larger traffic than some international networks like the ones from cake and merge
 erik197030/07/2010 06:45:31 GMT
yes thats great news,
 doomdy30/07/2010 08:43:53 GMT
Yes good news for french.
Not good news for us who wants to play against french cos its not gonna happen.
Its seperated network like FT.fr stars.fr PKR.fr Sad

I don't understand this law change exactly. I thought it was only recently that french players were segregated from other players. I was in france for 9 months until june and the way I played poker never changed. It was never any different from play in the UK.

except that I couldn't log into party poker instant play but I figured that was just my appartment connection.

I dont see how it can be good news for anyone.
For french people (Im french), we get a low traffic and more rake (dont think the law is to protect players, its just to get another tax)
For other people, you get less traffic (and less donks Tongue )
 Aggro66602/08/2010 17:45:44 GMT
exactly, what can be good on this? if every country make their own license, we see 1000 sites .fr, .it, .de, .us but no traffic and no big tournaments
 IslandJack02/08/2010 23:10:19 GMT
That´s why!
There was this French guy at my table on Party or FT (I forget) a few days ago.
Incredible donk. Shock

Just playing every hand and ridiculously agressive until I took 2/3 of his chips.
Then he calmed down and seemed completely lost.
Funny.
 mazas03/08/2010 08:55:44 GMT

 Mast3rKush05/08/2010 18:35:50 GMT
Bad as it may sound I was very happy to see the french players gone considering that amount of times french players had donked out against me playing with some garbage preflop.. and it always happened to be french or italian players playing terrible hands and sucking out against me it made me have some kind of vendetta against most of them lol Disagree Welcome back Frenchies... u suck out on me again.. i swear im grabbing the shotty this time Big Smile
