CyberArts Online Poker in France

Industry leaders choose CyberArts software for its stability, scalability, customizability, and fast deployment. The Foundation suite of products provides the enterprise class technology that operators are demanding. CyberArts
Foundation can be licensed on a prepaid royalty-free basis or via revenue sharing arrangements for some operators. CyberArts sees a great future in providing software for the soon to be French online gambling market. How does CyberArts fit into the landscape of gaming companies and gaming software providers? CyberArts is strictly an enterprise software company, not a gaming company in any sense. The company does not operate player-facing sites or a network, and they have very little in common with companies like Playtech or Microgaming.

This established software developer is excited after it's recent success in providing the software for Gioco Digitale, the first Italian operator to launch under the more enlightened online gambling laws in Italy. Now following that success it has signed a deal with the French state monopoly Francaise des Jeux (FDJ) to provide an online poker product. It is expected that the company, based in the USA, will create a functioning poker room with play for real money capabilities by early in 2010.

Stringent technical requirements made by the Italian regulatory body AAMS were met with confidence by the innovative developer. Ken Arnold Chairman of CyberArts in 1995, at a time when gaming online was a new concept, co-founded CyberArts. Their first product was graphical backgammon specifically tailored to the Internet. He was recently quoted about the development of the Gioco Digitale web site, saying, "The Italian government has raised their estimate of the poker market from 400 million euros per year to 1.2 billion euros per year. At this time, that estimate looks far too conservative, and we are sure that CyberArts Gioco Digitale software will be up to the challenge however large the Italian market grows."
