French online poker regulatory body, ARJEL, has just released the latest figures for the country’s virtual industry and, despite a further decline in revenue, it appears things are stabilising.
The quarterly financial report shows that overall online poker revenue is down by 2%, largely due to a 3% drop in cash game wagers. However, a 14% increase in tournament takings, coupled with an increase in female players from 11% to 12%, has given impression that the figures are finally finding their range.Indeed, although the number of high volume players (those wagering over €100,000 annually) has dropped, along with a decrease in younger players, it’s felt that those still playing online poker in France are long-term propositions.Moreover, mobile gaming has doubled in the last 12 months with 25% of all grinders in France taking to the tables on the go.While another series of declines for the French poker market won’t inspire much confidence, the addition of some positive increases has certainly helped to level off the market. Indeed, over the coming months it’s expected that relatively little change will occur as the industry further establishes itself.
