Online poker: A new decrease of the market in France
The French Regulation Authority of online gambling (ARJEL) published on Monday, April 14th its report on online gambling in France during the 1st quarter of 2014. According to the ARJEL, the market of online poker is breaking into a difficult beginning of the year, compared with other online gambling. The bets at online poker showed a new decrease during the three first months of the year. Since 2012, poker has been attracting less and less players. The average number of active players each week during the Q1 2014 fell by 12%, compared with the same period of 2013. Cash games havent been saved by this regression, with a drop of 19 % at 1.20 billion, against 1.476 billion during the same period. Nevertheless, the buy-ins of poker tournaments have progressed by 9% to 407 million in the Q1 2014, against 375 million in the Q1 2013. But this raise wasnt enough to contain this new recession of online poker during the 1st quarter 2014.
The activity of horse betting registers also its first significant drop (-12 %) during the 1st quarter of 2014, with bets passing from 305 million to 269 million.
