Party Poker surpasses Full Tilt Poker in France
Posted on August 11, 2010 by John Trevors for Luckyroom.com
With the opening of the online French market to online poker sites, PokerScout.com included in their rankings the newly created French domains regarding the inflow of “real cash” players after the alteration of legislation. Full Tilt Poker currently holds the second position on the world map of online poker sites for the last two years, but regarding the French market PartyPoker seems to be doing much better at least until today. PartyPoker.fr had an average of 660 players last week which boost them to the 19th spot of world rankings of online poker sites. PokerStars and Everest were the biggest online poker rooms in the French market. Full Tilt Poker and PKR were the last two companies that were licensed to operate in France as they obtained a French gambling license two weeks ago. In total the French government has issued nine licenses so far that include other forms of online gambling not only poker.
France passed the bill on the online poker last April despite their initial intentions to protect the state monopoly as EU forces all countries to liberate the gambling market on all forms including betting, online betting, horse races, lottery, poker, online casino and more. According to the Daily Telegraph that hosts recent statements of Mr. François Baroin, – the Finance Minister, “This legal framework enables us to eliminate the ‘black market’ by creating a legal environment that complies with the rules and subject to the relevant control”. Of course, what all the European online poker sites hope for is without any doubt the legitimacy of the U.S. market although it seems that U.S will adopt a similar plan like the French one – were each state will issue its own gambling licenses and will be responsible to regulate the online games.
