France

Light
France is a green-level online gambling jurisdiction with a complete regulation of the industry in all areas.

France is located in central Europe. It borders Andorra and Spain to the south-west, the Bay of Biscay to the west, the English Channel to the north, Belgium and Luxembourg to the north-east, Germany to the east, Switzerland and Italy to the south-east and the Balearic Sea to the south.

Overview

Every type of land-based gambling is legal in France, and this is part of why they have been so open about regulating every type of online gambling as well. While they initially did now allow casino-style gambling online, they changed this after a few years of seeing their numbers not reach the levels that they expected in terms of revenue.

The main problem with online gambling in France is that it's taxed at a particularly high rate. In poker in particular, players staged massive sit-outs at the tables of segregated sites (French players aren't allowed to play with foreigners on regulated sites), which got the attention of officials and led to the changing of the tax and rake structure of the games. Other taxes have made it a less-than-ideal jurisdiction for operators.

Licensing

Licensing is extremely valuable in France because of the high level of priority that they put on making sure that the sites that become licensed are legitimate. One thing about licensing that puts licensed sites at a disadvantage is that player pools aren't allowed to be shared with foreign sites. This has hurt poker sites in particular because a larger player pool is necessary to keep a healthy ecosystem of players, and without that, the games suffer overall. When you combine this with the fact that there are no laws against the playing at unlicensed sites for the players, it creates a system of incentives that are not in favor of operators.

Player Protections

Because licensing is taken so seriously and with such a high level of restriction, there are high levels of player protections for online gambling in France. There's a lot of concern about making sure that people who exhibit problem gambling tendencies are given opportunities to get help, and there are easy-to-use methods for following up with complaints or inquiries against licensed sites. Though it's legal for players to play with unlicensed sites, those protections do not extend to those sites.

    "Almost in every casino with microgaming software I am depositor because are active and enough fair. Let me explain what happenned in one day. A long , long time already signed up in casino mate to get welcome no deposit bonus and thats all what I played in that time. Couple of monts later in Golden Riviera. 1st deposit bonus was so nice then I couldnt miss that. After deposit I see in account only 20 EU what I transfered and nothing more. No match ? no spins? I was thinking can happen so calmed start live chat. from Support I heard that welcome bonus expired already and my account existing 6 monts already. I tried to find any prove like confirm email  or even more info from support what a hail?System somehow mixed up casino mate with riviera and in unfriendly atmosphere just let it go. More then hour they try make fool with keep talking that I have already accunt with them. How player should know that is possible to login in mate with golden riviera account? iven in software ver can be switched. Other example now. I remember one campaign from fortune longue group with  nice rewards for keep wagering. I deposited I think in every casino signep in this group  so redflush, platinumplay, royal vegas ..Doesnt matter where I win ned fs or loyality points. Everything was added in casino la vida . For exammple I discovered 20 fs suntide  in europalace but support couldnt find them me either. In next day problem resolved  when check lavida. I recognized different rewards what I saw notifications in in the past other casinos from the same campaign. I want to say sorry for my language  I know its not good enough  and very often my stories are not completlle explained"
