ANJ Reports a Doubling in France’s Online Sports Betting Activity

Publishing its “Trimestre Deux” market update, the ANJ revealed that it had recorded 3.3 million online gambling player accounts during the period of 1 April-30 June – approximately 260,000 accounts up on previous quarter results.

Market growth was attributed to French sportsbooks maintaining their “peak performance” with period wagering amounting to €2.15 billion, as French sports betting reported back-to-back record-breaking quarter results during 2021.

Branded the “market’s accelerator”, French sportsbooks registered a combined turnover of €420 million catering for total player accounts of 2.8 million, up 12% on previous quarter comparatives.

Of significance, the ANJ noted that sports betting turnover had nearly doubled against 2019 “normalised pre-COVID results” of €214 million.

“The particularly attractive calendar of the quarter, with in particular the Euro football and the Grand Slam of Roland Garros, had an undeniable impact on the practice and on the recruitment of new players. In fact, bets on these competitions represented 22% of the quarter’s activity,” ANJ’s report explained.

Further positives saw French horse racing continue its progress towards its “pre-COVID stabilised results”, registering a turnover of €95 million generated from total wagers of €400 million (+11%) as 360,000 online players made bets on French syndicated racing events.

Meanwhile, online poker recorded a 27% decrease in turnover to €103 million, which ANJ attributed to France easing its “intense Winter lockdown restrictions”.

Yet, in maintaining 900,000 accounts French poker retains a player participation well-above its pre-COVID results. Additionally, no metrics for online casino were reported as the vertical remains banned under France’s federal online gambling laws.

ANJ concluded its report by underlining that it had begun its review of French gambling advertising standards, in which licensed online operators must submit their activity reports for the remainder of 2021 trading.

“The Euros boosted the segment of sports betting whose turnover reached another record this quarter. This growth testifies to the fact that the French model, although very supervised, is not a brake,” stated ANJ President Isabelle Falque-Pierrotin.

“However, it asks us about the societal issues that these new uses come to question. This is particularly the case with advertising, a subject on which the ANJ is currently consulting all stakeholders to promote a rebalancing of operator practices. Finally, under the leadership of the ANJ and in collaboration with other administrative or judicial institutions, the toxic offers of tipsters have been severely hampered in recent months.”

Show stopping slot has been developed using the provider’s innovative Branded MegawaysTM concept and promises to help players top the big-win charts

1X2 Network, the provider behind some of this year’s hottest slot games, is helping 32Red make its players feel like the star of the show following the exclusive launch of Britain’s Got Talent MegawaysTM.

Britain’s Got Talent MegawaysTM has been built using the developer’s Branded MegawaysTM product, which allows operators to quickly and cost effectively launch bespoke MegawaysTM slots based on their branding or other themes and IP.

The slot is a six reel, two to seven row game with variable win ways from 64 to 117,649. It is packed with show stopping bonuses and features including Wilds, x2 Wilds, Free Tumbles, Free Spins and Incremental Multipliers all designed to help players top the big win charts.

Free Spins trigger when successive Tumbles occur with a minimum of four Tumbles required to trigger eight Free Games. During Free Spins, reels with seven symbols lock at that number of symbols for the entirety of the Free Games feature.

Britain’s Got Talent MegawaysTM has been designed and developed exclusively for 32Red by 1X2 Network’s Iron Dog Studio subsidiary. The game went from concept to go live in record time, taking less than 8 weeks to complete.

Rory Kimber, Director of Account Management and Marketing at 1X2 Network, said: “We are delighted to have extended our successful partnership with 32Red by launching Britain’s Got Talent MegawaysTM exclusively to its players, who will enjoy taking centre stage in what is a hugely entertaining slot.

“Our Branded MegawaysTM concept was initially designed to allow operators to quickly and cost effectively launch MegawaysTM slots based on their own branding, but this launch shows that it goes way beyond that to include other brands, franchises and IP.

“Britain’s definitely got talent, and so does the Iron Dog Studio team which was able to take this slot from concept to launch in 7 weeks. Gameshow themed slots are incredibly popular right now and in Britain’s Got Talent MegawaysTM 32Red has a slot that will dominate the ratings.”

Adam Newnham Commercial Manager at 32Red, said: “1X2 Network and its Iron Dog Studio division have done an incredible job with Britain’s Got Talent MegawaysTM and we are thrilled to be launching it to our players on an exclusive basis.
