I found this yesterday on the net. According to the news, a bingo app was launched yesterday as the Facebook’s first app that allows gambling with real Money instead of Facebook credits. And Zuckerberg´s company says it plans to rol out real-money online slot machine games in the weeks ahead. About poker, which is what we are more looking for, looks like Zynga will advance with that in the beginning of 2013. They are now in the process of selecting operators to create a real-money platform. So we just have to wait five or six months more til we fill BRM forum with unbelievable enrichments from night to day and scary-to-death losses against first time old ladies who were hoping to get more funds to buy new stuff for their farms in other Zynga games. If this goes ahead, it would be nice for us if BRM could make business with them…

I'm really not keen on the idea of real money gambling on facebook, for both slots and poker. I read here the other day that zynga poker will bring a new market of fish and clueless gamblers to real money but I agree with you that this will just result in a very high variance, very swingy, bingo-style donkfest at very low stakes with very little reward for months of play. I can't see why facebook players would jump from playmoney to decent levels when if they truly fancied their chances at poker they would have found the most popular poker sites by now, especially with all the television and internet advertising that poker has. Zynga poker merely helps boost the poker sites but given the option to play at experienced, tested and secure sites or an application-based, viral, spam funded client with close links to social networking, most serious players will only play at the former.

The main reason for my concern over gambling on facebook however, is the issue of convergence. Too many business sectors are merging. Supermarkets are entering the banking sector. Search engines make phones. Phone networks are multi-media companies. Now social networking could take over every social activity in your life. The danger is that these capitalist organisations are building up a great amount of personal data and they are intervening in every aspect of your life. So what if your bank knows how much you gamble? What if your bosses know? What happens when every advert you watch on television or youtube, every ad you see on facebook, every email, is personally engineered for you and getting your money in the most escape-proof scheme possible? Gambling addicts or any other kind of addict won't stand a chance.

i think real money games on facebook are doomed even before the start- just doesn't feel like this is the place to spend time on gambling, btw those who want to gamble already have a huge selection of places to do so, therefore i doubt any new faces will appear in the market, same dudes, maybe gonna jump in if decent promotions will run, but this is it...

I think it will be good for most of us to have real money games poker on facebook due to huge numbers of fishes that will play there Smile

But again a good table selection will be everything, i bet that there will be also tons of manics that are -EV to play with.

Zuckerberg will always be the big winner of all this, as he is the owner of the track where all the action will take place. Zinga is the transportation and we, those who are probably the best players those rooms can find in the middle of millions of passengers, just have to try to be the ticket professionals, who pass everywhere, everyone and every table geting the price for the ride.

The beer combined with the syntax, made it a little hard to understand.
If english is not your first language and you arent flawless, then, there is no doubt
