Online Casino gambling
has long been popular in Europe. In some respects the online casino
legislation may change sooner in Europe and the UK than in the US.
French online casinos are no exception to this rule. The French online
casino business has been in full swing for several years. It is
estimated that the French gamble twice as often and for three times as
long as British online casino players.
The increase in high speed Internet connection within France has a lot
to do with the rise in popularity of the online casino. Land based
casino gambling in France is highly restricted and if you want to play
casino games in France your only choice is state-managed operations.
Government run betting business enterprises are limited to Pari Mutuel
Urbain lotto and the National Lottery. The majority of areas in France
are forbidden from operating land based casinos and casino machines,
apart from a few small areas of the country. But an inconsistency in EU
policy has allowed for French players to play at the online casino.
The large increase in high speed Internet connection within France and
Europe in general has a lot to do with the rise in popularity of the
online casino. It is actually felt that online casinos are in fact the
catalyst for the demand for high speed Internet. To play most online
and use the software properly, high speed Internet is required.
