    Default France issues online gambling licenses

    Well, the day is finally upon us. The French government has issued 17 online gambling licenses to 11 different companies. The companies will be allowed to conduct online betting on sports and horse races, as well as poker.

    From Reuters:

    The companies include state-run Francaise des Jeux, horsing-racing outfit Pari Mutuel Urbain (PMU), Iliad Gaming, Sajoo, Betclic, Beturf, BES SS, Everest Gaming, France Pari, SPS Betting France and Table 14.

    "There were 35 requests for licences and we have retained 17 at this stage. None have been formally rejected," said Jean-Francois Vilotte, the president of Arjel, the regulator of gaming in France, in an interview on Europe 1 radio.

    This is good news! I hope that the US can see this is the way towards making us online gamblers and affiliates happy and providing crucial tax revenue to the states.

    loooool. u hope what about the US?

    This would be a total disaster. Open worldwide poker rooms are the future. The current situation in the USA where good rooms continue to operate and make affiliates plenty of money is better than the joke in France.
