Those deals are with the French poker network PMU, AB Groupe, Frances largest pari-mutuel horse racing company and Aviation Club de France, one of France’s most prestigious card rooms and private members clubs.

    Also approved was the worlds largest online poker site, PokerStars. The site will operate its own French only site at pokerstars.fr. Currently French residents can play free games and sit n go’s until the online poker guidelines will go into effect.
