    Hi to all bad news online for all gambling business :(

    In early April, 2010 French Parliament passed a vote to legalize and regulate the online poker industry in France. This new legislation means that on the 1st of June, 2010 the Poker/Online Gaming industry will experience a significant shake up.

    The bill means that the French Government will place a 2% tax on online poker and 7.5% on Sports Betting in an effort to ensure players are treated fairly as only licensed operators will be allowed to offer their products in France. This effectively means French players will only be allowed to play against French players.

    Unfortunately, the PAW Network is not immune to industry changes and in the coming week we will expect to receive more information from PAW Operators as to where they stand on operating in France.

    We have already been informed that BetFair will no longer be accepting French players and any affiliates currently promoting to French traffic are advised to cease immediately.

    PAW would like to assure all affiliates that once we have the information on where our operators stand, this will be communicated to them hopefully with an alternate offer such as rev-share.

    :rain::eek:

    And i do not know if you are the same, but i have less and less visits, no downloads, no players.

    Probably that is not just for poker, but all online casinos?

    Well in Italy, some of the online gamlbing companys did pay for the license.
    Italy has simmilar ban, you have to have a country license and pay taxes, the operater has to share players database to provide BAN for addicted gamblers, who chose not to play.

    The casinos which have no license have their websites banned throgh ISP.
    There are ofcourse many ways around it, but usual players don't know them.

    I guess most of the Europe will follow the same protocol.

    Actually no, but online gambling will be more limited. Probably casinos will spend a little less for aff program and advertising, since the casinos will have to pay taxes and install custom applications for specific country regulations.

    We'll see.

    Very poor news indeed. If France follows the path that Italy took we will end up with a bunch of tiny regional-only card rooms.

    No biggie, the French always surrender their hand anyway.
