PokerStars has been forced to say au revoir to French players who want to play on its international site thanks to a new government legislation.
A pop up on PokerStars read, “Access to real money games will be blocked for players from France on PokerStars.com at about 9.30pm CET, today June 24, 2010. Players will be unregistered from tournaments that start after that time. "All money in PokerStars accounts is 100% safe, and is available for withdrawal. You can choose to cash out now if you prefer.The French Authority of Regulation of Online Games (ARJEL) granted an initial batch of online gaming licences to Unibet, Everest Poker and the parent company of BWIN earlier this moth with PMU, Sajoo, SPS France Betting and Table 14 being awarded online poker licences. ARJEL has just announced a second batch of licences including one for PokerStars.fr. It looks like players in France, like in Italy, will only be able to play on a nation specific site. The French government is expected to release more details about the future of online poker in the country tomorrow.
