Owner La Société Française des Jeux sur Internet (SFJI), which owns close to 40 bricks and mortar casinos, made the decision without offering much explanation.  However, competing websites like PokerStars have already hinted at closing their French online poker room due to the enormous tax burden imposed by the French Government.

Luc Le Borgne, the head of the SFJI, issued the following statement regarding the new online poker venture back in December:  “Our customers are keen to experience the thrill of online poker. 200% Poker extends the trust and loyalty of our group’s brand into the online world,” he said. “With world-class platform and the private service we get from Spiral Solutions France, we’re confident that 200% Poker will be a great success.”

Players will be informed of the refund process after administrative checks are carried out will be paid in full.

The site currently reads “Under Maintenance”.

It is unclear how many customers 200 Percent Poker had since launching in September 2010.
