GVC Holdings and Pari Mutuel Urbain (PMU) have been authorised to offer shared online poker liquidity in France.
French online regulator ARJEL has now approved five companies to share liquidity poker markets between France, Spain, Italy and Portugal.
SAS, the local subsidiary of GVC-owned Bwin, will make use of the licence. PokerStars, Betclic and SPS Betting Limited (for Unibet.fr) have already obtained the approvals needed to begin offering pooled games. The French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese regulators signed an online poker cash sharing agreement on 6 July in Rome.
