Opening Of A New Gaming Club In Paris

We already told you a few months ago about what a gambling club was on Today is the time to talk about it again, by bouncing on current news. Indeed, we learn that a new gaming club has just opened at the end of April in the capital of our dear French neighbors. Direction Paris !

Sharp and his new club

Thursday April 26, 2018, the large group of Tranchant casinos opened the first gaming club in Paris. A project which in fact saw the light of day under the very new regulations in force in the capital. However, it is a club that does not allow roulette and slot machines… We must not forget that casinos have been banned since 1920 within a radius of 100 km around Paris. A restriction that had been put in place at the time, and still relevant to this day, in order to avoid disturbances to public order. However, the Enghien-les-Bains establishment was the only exception to this regulation.

A judicious and very regulated way of clearing up after the judicial slaughter which had affected, as we explained to you on our portal in December 2016, in recent years several former gaming circles. Parisian establishments nailed for laundering dirty money or for tax evasion against a background of organized crime. We will remind you of these facts a little further down in our article.

The Tranchant group, which currently has no less than 16 casinos in France, has just opened the first gaming club to the public. Located rue Marbeuf, a stone’s throw from the Champs-Élysées, it is in an art deco atmosphere that the establishment will invite its players to indulge in their favorite leisure activities. With the appearance of a luxury liner, the place has small wrought iron balconies that overlook the main room and above all… its game tables. Romain Tranchant, general manager of the family group, said Wednesday April 25 during a press point: “We are the first club to open under the new law, and we should be the only ones during the coming months”.

A coveted market

We must admit that this market is rather juicy and it is for this reason that several casino operators have expressed their interest in opening gaming clubs in Paris. Among the big names, we found for example Barrière or Partouche. The first should even inaugurate its own this summer on the Champs-Élysées. Romain Tranchant sees the establishment of his circle in Paris as obvious, stressing for example in the press that London has no less than 25 gaming clubs.
