The French love of games and entertainment has always meant that this
nation enjoys gambling in all shapes and forms. Card games, especially, are
considered something of a national pastime, and it is believed – especially
among Frenchmen – that the 52 card deck, blackjack and the roulette wheel all
originated in France! Despite tough government control on the French gambling
industry, much leniency has been seen in the past couple of years, which
includes the opening of the online gambling industry to foreign competition.

Gambling in France

For many years, the French government believed that in order to keep problem
gambling to a minimum, and to ensure that all profits from this industry come
back to the state, it would need to have a complete monopoly over French
casinos. And so, while it is quite possible to find any type of gambling,
ranging from casinos to lottery, and from horse racing to slots gaming (which
was legalized in 1988), the government still keeps a sharp eye on the market and
only allows a form of gambling after the Justice Minister sanctions it.

Popular casinos can be found in the south of France, such as the Palais de la
Mediterranee Casino in Nice, while the Casino Barriere d’Enghien-les-Bains is a
good choice for Parisians. All in all, there are 160 state licensed casinos in
the country.

All lotteries and betting activities are conducted by La Francasise des Jeux,
while Le Pari Mutuel Urbain (PMU) has power over French sports betting.

While French online gambling has always been a sticky subject
due to tough laws and the question on how to regulate this industry, many
changes have taken place in recent years. In 2010, new laws were
officially implemented, essentially allowing offshore online casinos, poker
sites and sports betting companies to offer their services and compete with
local gambling sites. Obtaining a license is a difficult process and
operators are still up against some tough restrictions, however, in the grand
scheme of things, French online casinos are now more widely available, and local
players have an excellent range of choice and variety.

French online casinos offer players the opportunity to play in
their own language and pay in Euros, and there are over 100 of these sites
available, many of them powered by software groups such as Real Time Gaming and
Microgaming. The most popular form of payment among French online gamblers is by
debit or credit card, while alternative methods such as Entropay and the PaySafe card are also accepted.
