Or can I as a foregneir living in France play on any site? Are there any good live games (ill be located in Nantes)?
The main question is: will I play poker in France?
Thanks for reading and I hope Ill get some info desperatly needed.
As a foreigner in France, chill out, you will be able to play poker !
Online: AS any french person or anyone on the french soil, you will only be able to play on .fr websites. Most probably Winamax or Pokerstars, but i'll let you check out the other offers. I'm not talking about the rake (
), and i'll let you see the level yourself (not gonna spoil
). What's sure is that once u get on the french soil, you won't be able to play anywhere else (only .fr)
To do so, you will need a bank account situed in the E.U. You'll prob get one when you get there if u don't have one yet.
Live: As long as you can show your ID, no probs to play in live casinos or poker rooms.
Hope this will help.
