Friday September 2,2011 : French operator expands offering
 
The French online gaming regulatory body ARJEL has awarded France's third largest casino group JOAGROUPE's online subsidiary JOAONLINE with approval to operate online horse race betting and online fixed odds sports betting.
 
The company's online horserace betting licence on the domains joaclub.fr, joa-club.fr and joaonline.fr carries the condition that the company may not offer skill games on the horserace betting dedicated website.
 
The approval follows a deal between JOAONLINE and France-Pari which will see JOAONLINE's existing sports betting offering expand to include fixed odds and live betting in September 2011, with France-Pari supplying the platform software, managing the bets and the associated odds and risk control
