Paris will have to be reclassified being a tourist resort if casinos are to replace the cercles that are notoriously corrupt jeux.
The French government has had it with the standard cercles de jeux but Vegas is maybe not the Parisian mayor's 'cup of tea,' evidently.
That means Paris will probably reject the theory of the large Vegas-style casino in favor of small and select London-style gambling clubs, like Crockfords or the Ritz Club.
The federal government is looking to flake out a 1907 law that banned casinos from operating within 100 kilometers (62 miles) of Paris, and is reported to be interested in the idea of the casino that is large-scale the funds it might bring.
A report presented last week by Ile de France prefect Jean-Pierre Duport concluded that a Vegas-style location could garner around €46million ($52 million) in fees per 12 months.
The deciding vote, nevertheless, lies with Socialist city mayor Anne Hildag, whom reported this week that such establishments are not her proverbial steaming hot beverage, an idiom, by the way, that apparently translates word after word and has the figurative meaning that is same.
Which all means it's likely Paris will move to the traditional London model, of heavily controlled and very membership that is exclusive, to be able to change the distressed cercles de jeux. The new clubs, which would offer table games but no slots, could be up and running as early
