It’s official for several hours, the ARJEL (Regulatory Authority of Online Games) has posted on its website to meet obligations to expect a French license. A license with a very large portion of websites working in this area hope to obtain. As you know, only a hundred licenses will be awarded in France, others must find a way to avoid becoming “illegal” in the eyes of government. Sites that have no official license, will be deleted or blocked by many search engines speaking. Do not forget that the publication established by the ARJEL is not complete. Changes can be bet in place before the summer holidays. The main points are still present. The bill establishes is a “preview”.
Many strict rules will have to be met. In reading the draft, we note the important points: protection of minors and persons called “additives” to gambling, money laundering or any fraudulent transaction in the website.
Licenses are issued for a period of 5 years and may be extended thereafter. They are suitable sites for horse racing, the Paris sports of all kinds and of course, online poker. You will note that online casinos do not have access. The reason? Slots are defined as pure coincidence and cause a significant dependence.
Large groups hoping to get the coveted license. Logically, the French game and the PMU have priority on their licenses. They get no major concerns. Further examples of groups with land-based casinos on the continent Tranchant or barrier. They are so few places for famous companies present on the internet: Unibet, Bwin, ZEturf and many others.
This project will therefore regularize many points that were not observed in the past.
