GAMING INFORMATION: France has a long tradition of casino gambling.There are more than 140 casinos in France, but many are relatively small, and not up to international standards.Seventy-nine French casinos are included in this Guide.France is an example of a country where the once thriving casino industry was on the decline for many years.Twelve of its major casinos produced 60% of the total revenue.

The most active casinos are: CannesPalm-Beach, Deauville, Divonne, Evian-les-Bains, Enghien, Beaulieu, Mandelieu-la Napoule, Trouville, Cannes Municipal, and Aix-en-Provence.
The basic 1907 law authorizing casino gaming in France limits casino operations to Spas or resort towns.It required a strict dress code and set the age limit for players to 21 years old.Players were not allowed to be residents of the community where the casino was located.The major French casinos are located in popular resort destinations such as the famous C6te d'Azur, or the English Channel.
The established entry fee is generally around FF 70 to enter a main gaming room, FF 2 - FF 5 to enter rooms offering only boule.Most casinos charge FF 55-75.In 1987 a new law reduced the age limit for gambling to 18 years.

New casino games were legalized such as: English roulette, punto banco, minipunto banco, and slot machines.
The introduction of slot machines was hailed as a major move by the French casino industry to modernize itself.However, there was a resistance from the French government to slot machines in the casinos.Some 16 casinos were initially authorized to carry slot machines.Authorized games now include slots, baccarat, blackjack, boule, chemin de fer, craps, English roulette, French roulette, punto banco, 23, and 30-40.A majority of the French casinos offer only low stakes boule.
The Ministry of Interior overseas gaming in France.Under the Minister is the Service des Cources et des Jeux (Gaming Division) of the Surete Nationale (National Police Force) which regulates and inspects casinos.Also within the Ministry is the Direction des Renseignements Generaux de Jeux which establishes rules of operations for the casino.A third element of the Ministry is the Gaming Commission which reviews applications for new casino licenses and renewals.
