Legalization of Gambling in France

With about 200 casinos nationwide, France is one of the top 10 nations with the most casinos. Online gambling is still rather new and highly regulated in France, though.
Here are a few things you should be aware of if you want to gamble online in France because not all forms of online gambling are permitted while you are there.

If you're 18 or older, you can play casino card games, play slots, bet on sports, and gamble on horse races at any of France's more than 200 land-based casinos (as of 2022.)

Can I gamble online in France?
Since it was made legal in France in 2010, online gambling is still in its infancy. But it is strictly regulated.
The French Justice Ministry prohibits all online casino games of chance, including spread betting and betting exchange, in an effort to prevent gambling from developing into an addiction.

What types of online gambling can you play online in France?

Only three types of online gambling are allowed, and they must be operated by companies with licenses:
• Online horse race betting
• Online sports betting
• Online Poker. (Poker is a classic casino game, but because it's a skill-based game where players may adjust their approach for various situations, playing it online is allowed.)

The French have a long history with gambling.
• In the 1500s, the French were the first to add the Queen to the deck of cards.
• In the 17th century, the French mathematician Blaise Pascal invented the roulette wheel, which
• The game 21, “vingt-et-un,” may have originated in French casinos around 1700 A.D. and migrated to the United States around the 1800s.
• Blackjack might have originated from a French card game called “chemin de fer,” which translates to “railroad.”
• In 1997, the gambling age was lowered from 21 to 18.
• In 1988, slot machines became legal after previously being banned.

Many players in France have been left feeling disappointed since they are unable to access their online gambling and poker accounts because French legislation prohibits unregistered internet bookmakers and poker rooms as well as any other type of online casino game except poker. Additionally, players must pay taxes on their gains from online gambling, ranging from 19 to 34 percent.

Some players have managed to find ways to bypass the legislation:
• Hiding their IP address
• Using a foreign postal address
• Using third parties to make deposits for them
• Changing their IP address- a tactic that some British vacationers and expats who want to access their UK or foreign gambling accounts while visiting France.

What happens if a player tries to bet on an unlicensed site?

If you try to access an unlicensed site while in France, one of the following things might happen:
➢You can’t access the site.
➢You’ll get redirected to the French equivalent, if available.
➢A message may pop up stating that you can’t join this particular site.
➢You may be able to register if you use a UK address. Most UK bookies will ignore your location, although most operators take steps to identify your location once you have registered.
