While conducting a review of its current license holders, the French regulator ARJEL has announced the approval of new online gambling licenses to Aubsail SAS in respect of its operation France-pari-sportif.fr, which is authorised to offer a range of internet sports betting that includes fixed odds and live betting. ARJEL has granted the licence for five years effective from July 7.
France-bet-sportif.com was conceived by the Olympic sailing phenom Derrendinger Arnaud. The 33 year old Derrendinger raised Euros 2.5 million and according to the Telegram, Derrendinger expects a turnover of around Euro 6 million in the first year of operation.
Derrendinger’s operation isn’t mammoth by any stretch, boasting a staff of only twenty with its digital partner being Technopole Brest.
Derrendinger Arnaud showed his excitement in the release saying, “Obtaining the approval and the opening of the site marks the actual beginning of the adventure. After those early years of “warming up” Pari Sportif France can finally get into the game! ”
ARJEL was in a giving mood, as Iliad Gaming SAS, a company associated with Chilipoker.fr, has also received approval for an additional French domain titled Turbopoker.fr to operate with from 7 July.
