Online Casino Players fighting back tax increase

Obviously, other than casino operators, players are also very disappointed with the new tax rules for French online poker sites. Players are definitely unhappy about the 2% rake raise at a lot of lately regulated French poker rooms.

There has been a noticeable increase in rake charges since France has started up its online gambling market to operators who are running their sites from outside of the country. The latest rules for operators abroad have caused cash game rakes up to 7.7%, following a 2% tax augmentation was deemed obligatory at all new online gambling sites. In order to avoid taking the hit entirely, a lot of operators passed the tax onto their players. Apparently, poker players in France are not sitting down quietly and pay the increased charges. Instead they are protesting the offensive increase.

Players at Poker Stars figured out a unique way to boycott the website. They are signing up to poker tables but not playing the game. This form of protest is spreading and currently the operators can encounter this problem quite often.
