Zynga and bwin.party will launch 180 casino games alongside other products - including poker - for real money play in the first half of 2013.

Zynga's real money poker players in the UK will be a part of the bwin.party player pool as part of the .com liquidity, with the software powered by that of bwin.party.

A press release from the Zynga stated that "Zynga's expertise in social gaming [coupled with] the top international real money gaming operator is the best way to create the highest quality gaming experiences for our players in the UK."

According to PokerScout, Zynga Poker hosts an average of 106,000 global players per day.

both companies are struggling with their profits, so it's a case of two one legged people joining forces- result is hardly 1+1=2, in reality it's always nice to see companies trying to take active actions, fight for customers- so good luck to them, pokerstars needs some sort of competition just to be active themselves

Never though that they have such an amount of players.
I must say i was impressed by that.
But the thing is how many of these will turn to real money players.
One thing is for sure. Whatever freeroll they will have they will become more or less
useless with so many freerollers Smile

Bwin merged with Party gaming, now this move.
I wonder how things run for them

I think their move is really good considering the fact that pokerstars bought full tilt poker and they have now almost a monopol on this market....

With a good promotions program and the extra boost from bwin i think that they could take a good part of the market Blink

Like Doarulle said: Zynga is most known from facebook. Many millions of people play in their games.
But facebook said, that they have 20.000 active player per month. I don't know why PokerScout said that is 106.000 ?

well hopefully this will help them with there profit marks, but how i see it is Zynga is known for facebook where most people play for free, some buy chips to play with but when people normally play for real cash there at there favorite platform.

What i consider to be the most important point of all of this isn't related here. What everyone wants to know is if it will be possible to play these real money poker games through Facebook. Maybe not, and that's why they manage to create the partnership with bwin. Because if it was possible, we knew we would be finding lots of new fish around and fresh bucks to come to our pockets. Playing outside Facebook there won't be that much new fish, i think.

This post hits the nail on the head. I dont think facebook would allow for gambling to take place withing their site because they aren't licenced for it. I dont think this will ever be the case. If zynga remains to ofer free poker on facebook with their current business model then the crossover traffic will be very minimal. I feel like the people who play zynga poker are doing it just to fill some time and my guess is less than 1% take it seriously(it is play chips after all). if the cash games were hosted on facebook you would get the people wanting to take shots and lose their money, but im not sure if you can convince those players to convert to a site, deposit, lose, and repeat.

I have the feeling that when the deal is done and the site is open they will ask
most probably from all the zynga players to sign up from the beginning to the new poker site.
Cause its no secret, what is going on with all the fake accounts there.

Frankly i kind of disagree with some of the posts above about how much zynga will "earn"...

You need to consider that know they only offer play money games, many players won't deposit real money since many of them play just for fun. We'll see what the future brings for them!
