United Kingdom Gets Zynga Online Gambling

Published Wednesday, April 03, 2013 - Online-Casinos.com

The news spreads fast when the market is good or bad so within a few hours the word is out about Zynga and its debut of interactive games for real money in the U.K. Whenever anything like the introduction of a new comer in the online gambling industry hits the internet it is exciting to see how quick the reaction is. Zynga’s stock value has been in slow decline for a time now but rallied at the prospect of another type of client who likes to spend real money gaming with friends. The mega games developer announced the launch on the third of April of its ZyngaPlusPoker and ZyngaPlusCasino in partnership with the bwin.party group. Zynga stock went up 8 percent to $3.33 in afterhours trading after the announcement.

Chief Revenue Officer of Zynga, Barry Cottle, blogged a post, "We look forward to launching our social versions of real money games for players on Facebook and mobile in the UK throughout 2013," Age verified players can have real money gaming now in the United Kingdom but will have to wait until the government in the USA legalizes the pastime. ZyngaPlusPoker is an online poker room that will offer UK players a wide variety of games and tournaments with buy-ins at every level. The ZyngaPlusCasino offering brings players more than 160 slots games and a variety of table games to choose from that include Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat and Video Poker as well as the first-ever FarmVille themed slots game.

Zynga has been losing ground financially at an alarming rate so the introduction of real money gaming is expected to bolster revenues and expand the horizons for the innovative company. Later Zynga is expected to launch some of these offerings on Facebook and in other jurisdictions. Money processing for all the Zynga games is available through a one wallet system and there are start up bonuses and cash on deposit incentives.
