French Players Being Tapped by Euro Online Casinos

If you gamble online and are from France, now is one of the best times you will ever have to procure great deals at Euro online casinos. With the news that the French government will be amending gambling laws to regulate the online gambling industry, many an online casino operator has already begun to offer special bonuses and promotions to French players for opening a real money gambling account.

The River Belle Group's Jackpot City Casino, which is powered by Microgaming and boasting eCOGRA's "Safe and Fair" Seal of Approval, recently announced they are giving away fifteen free Euros to all French players, just for signing up. Of course, just like any no-deposit bonus, there are terms and conditions governing the withdrawal of such free money. Yet, along with Jackpot City's host of other promotions, the offer should be tempting.

Some French players are planning to hold out longer, for the French-only bonuses and promotions are expected to get even better as more online casinos come round to the French market and stake a share at the prodigious amount of traffic generated from the nation who lives passionately and invented the phrase C'est la vie (say la vee), That's Life.

Another reason why some players are holding out - that is, opening new accounts on top of existing accounts, is because of a clause in the gambling legislation amendment that says once the new internet gambling laws go into effect, all online casinos with French players will be required to close their accounts and be given the opportunity to re-register, but without any added incentives.

The idea is to "spread the wealth" so to speak, although many analysts think it is a measure more designed to protect and ensure the future of the French gambling monopoly's, Francaise des Jeux and Par Mutuel, who you can rest assured will be offering incentives since they will be one of the new players in the French market. If you hadn't heard already, a recent ECJ ruling gives betting monopolies the right to offer services online if the government deems it to be in the best interests of its citizens. The new legislation is scheduled to go into effect in 2010.
