France's Online Gambling Revenues Down In 2013

France's online gambling tax revenue fell in 2013, according to a report released by French gambling regulator ARJEL.

For the full year 2013 France had gambling revenues of €325 million, which is slightly down from the €327 million that the country brought in from 2012.

Of that total, horse racing amounts totaled €160 million while poker brought in €86 million, and sportsbetting brought in €79 million in tax revenue.

2013 revenues were bogged down by poor poker performance, which dropped 18% and saw wagers of just over one billion Euros. Sportsbetting revenues ended up saving the day though, as revenues were up 41% in the fourth quarter, padding results that could have been much worse.
