Recently, Everest Poker said its French customers that as of 31st May, 2016, it would no longer be assailable for business.
Betclic Everest Group, its parent company, who also works Betclic Poker in addition to Everest, would instead concentrate their efforts in France on this Betclic brand.
EverestPoker.fr customers would not be left empty-handed as they would be left with 2 opportunities. They could either withdraw all their funds or could transfer their accounts to the BetclicPoker.fr, and by doing that they can keep their whole bankroll, VIP status, as well as Summit Points all intact. Poker players that select to do neither are anticipated to mechanically have their EverestPoker.fr balances brought back to them in 2016’s October.
On a lot of the levels it makes great sense to stress on one brand in France where internet poker is declining constantly. What is more to this is that both poker clients function on the iPoker.fr web that has not been able to gain important traction in the ring- walled French marketplace.
As per PokerScout, the top 3 French online poker networks based on a 7 day moving average of ring-game players are partypoker.fr (300 players, 12.6%), PokerStars.fr (700 players, 29.4%), and Winamax (1100 players, 46.2%).
iPoker.fr network stays in the very last spot in the French PokerScout rankings on their own with only 280 poker players, or only 11.8% of the market. Isabelle Andres stated that there was no logic to have two poker deals on the French market.
