French players excluded by Microgaming operators

Speculation that compliance strategy is based on intention to secure French licensing in 888 venture

French player reports surfacing Friday indicate that online casino and poker operators powered by Microgaming are excluding French gamblers in compliance with the new liberalising laws which came into effect early June.

Those affected are apparently being assured that their positive account balances are immediately available for withdrawal.

Under the new laws, only companies in possession of a French gambling licence issued by regulator ARJEL may operate in the country, and the move is seen as an initiative to comply in the new environment.

Microgaming and 888.com formed a partnership earlier this year targeted on the French market (see previous InfoPowa report). It is expected that once licensed, the partnership will operate a dedicated French website in full compliance with ARJEL requirements.

    "Hi Claralie, Thank you for your post. We take all suggestions from our players very seriously because it’s our number one priority that you are happy when playing at Casino Extreme. You will see in our T&C that only one free promotion is allowed between deposits. We think this is good for our players because if you didn’t have luck while playing after depositing, you will be able to win on a free tournament or another free promotion. For example, you won $100 on the LCB free tournament 9 days ago. Another important reason for this rule is that it prevents players who never deposit from collecting all the winnings from free promotions, and allows a greater chance to regular depositors to win. I hope this explains a bit better why this rule is so important for our regular depositing players. If you have any more suggestions or recommendations, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at alex@casinoextreme.com . Best regards,AlexCasino Extreme"
