French gaming operators vs. foreign online casinos
February 10, 2010, 10:47 am (7 years ago)
French gaming companies have been involved in suing 14 online casino operators for breaching French regulation by allowing French residents to access as players. The 3 companies, Barriere, Joagroupe, and Tranchant, are asking the Criminal Court in Paris to reject any licensing to the accused online gambling operators for no less than 2 years.
Latest conclusions given by the European Court of Justice have showed a member nation in the EU may prohibit Internet gaming operators under particular conditions. The French casino owners want the foreign companies to be punished in any possible licensing endeavor once France opens its gaming market for actions committed whilst the market is still closed.
