Sports Betting on the Rise in France

According to the latest figures published by French online gaming regulator ARJEL, sports betting is on the rise in the country spurred mainly the France’s love for football and an affinity for all things competitive which inevitably end up in some sort of pool or sports wager.

Football bets rose by 38% last year and other non-traditional sports like basketball also saw a sharp increase of up to 36% during 2013. The main wagering event at the moment remains sports betting with football at its crown and the online gambling industry has much to do with it, by facilitating French punters and bettors an easy to access platform where they can place bets of any amount and type on any sport local or foreign from anywhere within the French borders.
