Today Ongame Network launched its latest regional online poker network exclusively for residents in France. Ongame Network France is an online poker service provider for French licensed operators abiding by the new French regulatory framework.
At the same time, Ongame Network announces EurosportPOKER as the next stage in rocketing Ongame Network into France. Ongame Network France now boasts a tricolour of well renowned operators, counting bwin and Sajoo.fr, promising an already strong liquidity ensuring French players a first-class experience from day one.
“EurosportPOKER is a brand with high recognition in all of Europe, so to have them joining us together with bwin’s player base and Sajoo’s French heritage, we hold a three of a kind that puts us in a very strong position in France”, says Martin Lerby, Head of Ongame Network.
EurosportPOKER is a commercial brand of SPS Betting which belongs to the leading French media group TF1 and was among the first batch of seven operators to be directly granted a license to operate online poker, by French regulator ARJEL earlier this month.
“We have a longstanding relationship with Ongame Network since launching our UK poker service, and are very happy to sign a new deal with them, this time in France,” says CEO Olivier Ou Ramdane. “We have the ambition to become one of the leading players in the French regulated Poker market.”
Ongame Network sees a profitable business opportunity in the new French regulated environment since exceeding expectations with its regional effort in Italy, and is working intensively on integrating more partners to this new regional liquidity.
