Gambling with Real Money on Facebook

The possibility that Facebook will open its doors to real money gambling apps has created much buzz in the British market.  It has been recently reported that Facebook may license casino operators to develop casino apps for the Facebook platform.  It goes without saying that the only eligible operators will be those casinos that have already received the proper licensing from the regulatory bodies in charge of online gambling.  Gamesys and 888 are two online casino operators that, according to recent reports, have been tagged by Facebook officials as potential affiliates. This is huge news for online casino operators and also for players! Players might soon be able to enjoy even better online casino bonuses.

 

Gaming apps like poker have been popular among Facebook users for years.  The question is – can these popular games successfully ford the transition from money-free games to real-money games?  A game like Zynga Poker, which enjoys much popularity among Facebook users, is currently free, and there is no guarantee that it will succeed in monetizing.  One way people are suggesting for the integration of real-money gaming into Facebook is for Facebook to operate a system of Facebook credits where users deposit money to Facebook in exchange for credits that can be used in the games.  It’s advantageous for Facebook, who can take a percentage, and the players, who have a safe and secure way of depositing and receiving money.  However, in order for Facebook to inaugurate this new service they first need to develop a real age verification system.  This will ensure that online casino no deposit bonus offers go to real players only.

 

One of the more interesting aspects of the new possibility will be the impact of Facebook’s unique social consumption on the success or failure of gambling apps.  While one app may go viral, one may go unnoticed; standard SEO doesn’t work on Facebook.  Also, multiplayer games will experience interesting interaction within networks of Facebook friends.
