Who manages E-Gambling in France?
Autorité de régulation des jeux en ligne (ARJEL)

Overview:
France came under a lot of pressure from the EC to adjust their online gambling restrictions, which forced them to amend and legalize onine gambling in a bid to better regulate it.

Even though the new law opened up France’s online gaming market to foreign operators, it came with restrictions. Only limited types of online gaming would be available to the operators, and the established French operators were to get preferential treatment.

French players are cut off from the international poker scene, which means when you play on a licensed French poker site, you only play with people who are located in France. This has caused liquidity problems for licensed sites as they find it difficult to keep the games running with a limited player pool.


Security Requirements / Indemnity for Player Deposits:
All licensees must adopt an IT system known as “Frontal.” All customers’ data and information runs through here and is stored in an access-safe box that only ARJEL can access.

Licence Fee:
One type of license with the annual fee based on the amount of licenses issued.
€20,000 for one license
€30,000 for two

Reporting Requirements to Regulators:
All licensees are required to submit a certification issued by a third party, accredited by ARJEL, once a year.

All operators must comply with AML legislation in force.
