    The French Gaming regulator ARJEL this week has awarded two more licenses to operate online gambling sites in France. PartyGaming was given a license to operate their online poker and sports betting websites to French residents.

    PartyGaming will offer sports betting right away and when the issue with Malta is remedied, they will offer online poker. Earlier PartyGaming announced three deals that will allow them to benefit from a huge pool of players. 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.
