Horserace betting in France
Legal framework

Pari mutuel is the only legal form of betting on horseracing in France.

Between 1881 and 2010, only horse racing associations (nonprofit) were
allowed to organize betting on horseracing :


–
On racetracks only until 1931,
–
Off-track since 1931, through PMU.
In 2010, the law opened the French online gambling market (horserace
betting, sports betting and poker) to competition :
–
Horseracing associations keep the monopoly for on-track betting and, though PMU, betting in
retail networks,
–
8 operators (including PMU) offer online betting on horse racing.
Offline and online gambling markets are now regulated by different laws and
monitored by supervision bodies, of which ARJEL regulates online gambling.
