PartyGaming is again looking forward to a part of the market in the renewed French online gambling jurisdiction. The global gaming company has announced that a deal has been struck for a white label online poker service for the Aviation Club de France making this the third business to business arrangement in France. This is apparently a long term agreement with the newly branded ‘ACFPoker’ network.

Once the licensing is in place the seamless use of facilities and offerings will mesh for the PartyGaming.fr poker network and the Aviation Club de France which has a sterling reputation as one of France's most prestigious card rooms and private members clubs. Founded in 1907 by four pioneering French aviators today the club has over 100,000 members. AFC's presence is large as a host of gambling venues such as the World Poker Tour and the Grand Prix de Paris.

Chief Executive Officer of PartyGaming, Jim Ryan, speaking about the recent announcement commented, “ACF is a great addition to our French poker network and allows us to directly connect with France’s offline poker players. This deal is a great strategic fit and together with our other B2B alliances in France, we are determined to establish a strong position in what we believe will become one of Europe’s largest poker markets.”

A prime example of thinking ahead PartyGaming executives are looking to situating themselves in potentially lucrative online gambling markets by striking deals with other major players in the industry ensuring a consolidated success. The company has been playing their cards safe in the American market with rumours flying they are looking to possibility of entering the USA once again. Analysts believe the overturning of the ban on online poker in America is far from a done deal even though some companies are planning on a return to the once very lucrative US gambling market.
