French betting up

The turnover of French tote PMU has increased by 0.6% in the 1st semester compared to the same period last year. Some of the key factors that have impacted the 2009 turnover:

  • While off-track betting decreased by 0.4%, online betting increased by 21.7%.
  • The new 'flexible' bet type proved to be a great success. Quinté Plus Flexi allows bettors to buy 50% of a bet (and win 50% of a possible winning).
  • The new multi-leg bet type Quadrio has a slow start in convincing the French bettor.
  • The introduction of a 3rd meeting each saturday has had a positive influence on turnover.
