You may well be wondering why there are not so many offers for French customers when it comes to online casino gaming. After all, it is one of the most important countries in the world, boasts an expansive population of just short of 67 million, is home one of the world's most iconic capital cities in the form of Paris and is a place known for its art, culture and timeless elegance.
The answer to that is unfortunately, France is also home to some of the most punitive and restrictive laws when it comes to online casino gaming, that it is not worthwhile for the vast majority of reputable online casino gaming companies to offer their services in the country. Add to that the hefty taxation on gambling in the country and it is easy to see why so many operators steer clear.
That often means that many companies, even when they are thinking about what language support to offer for their casino and customer services, will not really consider French as a viable option. However, there is a problem with that.
French is a language spoken not just by those living in France but in a number of other parts of the world. In total, there are 28 countries in addition to France where French is spoken and some of them, such as Belgium, Canada, Luxembourg and Switzerland to name but four, are all places where the restrictions and taxation on online gaming are not quite so restrictive.
Estimates suggest that across these 29 countries in total, together with people in other countries that can also speak French as a second language, there could be as many as 300 million French-speakers in the world today. Furthermore, predictions are that by 2050, that number will swell to 500 million.
That is a pretty large audience to alienate yourself away from and it is may well be that this is the reason that bitcoin-based casino Cloudbet have announced that they are now going to offer French language support at is popular online cryptocurrency casino.
In a recent email announcement Cloudbet stated the following:
