France has a long history of gambling, but it is now highly regulated with strict rules and high taxes. Online gambling and casinos in France are managed by the National Gambling Authority of France, or Autorité de régulation des Jeux en ligne (ARJEL).
Only a limited type of games are allowed to be played in online casinos in France, some of these are poker, sports betting, and Horseracing. All casino licenses, both online and offline, are required to adopt an IT system known as "Frontal". The customer's data is securely kept in this access-only storage which only ARJEL is permitted to access. More information about French casino licenses can be found below.
