A new hope for the future of French online poker market - France

Since the launching of the new regulation in 2010, the online poker scene in France has experienced a steady decline. However many operators in this industry have found out clues to a possible recovery of the market. They thus remain optimistic. As a reminder, the first quarterly report published by France’s online gaming regulator ARJEL (Autorité de Régulation des jeux en Ligne) has once again confirmed that decline. Generally, cash game traffic mostly embodies it. Actually, in just one year, the participation rate in cash game tournaments dropped by 19 %. And since early March, the decline keeps gaining more and more ground in cash game seats, and the number of players declined by 26 %. The ARJEL also expressed its concerns about the drop in turnover experienced by online poker operators. The latter recorded a significant loss of 10 % in the first quarter.

While cash game traffic is in steep decline, the participation rate in poker tournaments has, however, increased. Total buy-ins indicated a 9 % increase, a reasonably encouraging outcome. The fact that not all gaming operators in France are hit by the decline is considered to be a positive sign, another ray of hope in the French market. According to the ARJEL, 47 % of players admit to wager on illegal gambling sites. Positive changes in French gaming market are expected if these players make up their mind to play on French regulated poker sites.
