The opening game was particularly taken by all players in the field and players are looking forward to the amenities of ARJEL to finally play legally. Poker players will have to wait longer than other players!
Indeed, the Budget Ministry in Bercy said in a press release to AFP that the liberalization of poker should be postponed for a month. The problem would be located in Europe. We learn in the statement that “Member States have three months to make their comments and Malta has chosen to make May 27 France now has one month to respond, but may not publish a decree before” member states had three months “.
Although the authorities may grant approval at the same time as those for sports paris, they will not be valid in the eyes of French law, requiring an enforcement decree.
It seems that Malta ale does so for fear of losing its market, Malta is a country of particular benefit to companies holding licenses to games. She explicitly expected to bring up the date his opinion and think that France does not respect the Europeans treated the free movement of goods and people. Bercy confirms that “There is no problem on the merits. It is simply a problem of European order.
This poses a dilemma for operators who do not know if it’s worth waiting another month or blocking any activity then be illegal for a month. We know that France, including François Barouin not hesitate to make every effort to tackle illegal sites when the games start, but we do not know if he will take into account this new element.
Fortunately for the poker players, one of the first qualities to have is an extraordinary patience.
