The official publication of a decree from the Ministry of the Interior last Sunday authorizes French casinos to offer new games in their rooms: Sic-bo and Bingo. In force since Monday, this text was eagerly awaited by gaming establishments in France. Indeed, the latter wish to expand their range of games to improve their current situation. It should be noted that French casinos are experiencing a rather gloomy economic and financial situation. To get back in the saddle, some diversify while others restructure their activities. Sic-bo and Bingo games can thus enable them to attract new customers.
French casinos finally authorized to offer Sic-bo and Bing
Casinos in France had requested authorization to be able to expand their gaming offer with Sic-bo and Bingo. They also expressed the importance of the arrival of these two new games for this year 2015. Bingo, a particularly popular game in Spain, has already been tested in France. The tests were carried out in three gaming establishments including the Partouche casino in Aix-en-Provence. Sic-bo is a famous and popular Chinese dice game.
Last Sunday took place the publication of the decree of the Ministry of the Interior of May 15 in the Official Journal. This marked a change in the gaming industry. The text, in application since Monday, indeed authorizes French casinos to offer the two games Sic-bo and Bingo.
To revive the activity of casinos
This authorization is helping to revive the activity of casinos, which have experienced some setbacks in recent years due to the crisis, the ban on smoking and ever stricter regulations. Fabrice Paire, the boss of the Partouche group, the second largest casino operator in France, has also explained that if the Sic-bo and Bingo games make their entry into gambling establishments, this could greatly change the situation. These two new hobbies will allow French casinos to conquer new customers. When electronic roulette arrived in the halls of casinos, they took advantage of the influx of new customers. Sic-bo and Bingo will also produce the same effect and provide the same benefits.
The project to set up a casino in Paris seems to be on the way to fruition. Although the road is still rough and many steps still have to be taken, there is a high probability that the report of the commission responsible for studying the matter will be positive. True object of speculation, this report should finally be submitted to the Ministry of the Interior by the beginning of June. On a purely financial level, the opening of a casino in the French capital could bring in big tax revenues. But this argument is not the only point to take into account since the union delegate Force Ouvrière, against a possible casino in Paris, has some weighty arguments.
