Of the 200 land-based casinos in France, none are located in Paris. Indeed, in the French capital, these establishments are purely and simply prohibited.
Instead, you can still count on gaming clubs that have replaced the old circles, a few years ago.
There are no slot machines there. Only tables dedicated to certain traditional games are allowed. At the moment, the classic game that is all the rage in Parisian gambling clubs is none other than ultimate poker.
At the Paris Elysées Club, it has just made the news again. Indeed, on Sunday June 26, 2022, a player managed to win big on this poker variant by landing a nice progressive jackpot record of over €130,000.

To add a little more appeal, it should be noted that the progressive jackpot that can be won has been in the news for the past few days.
