Facebook to enter the Igaming industry?

Tags: facebook, gambling, igaming, poker, real-money.
Posted on 01 December 2011 by "T".

A report posted yesterday morning by EgamingReview is suggesting that Facebook is looking to lunch real-money gambling in the UK. According to the report, Facebook has spoken with up to 20 online gaming experts and potential facilitators over the last 6 months and will try to get 8 licenses for UK operators to offer real-money gambling apps. If it works out fine in the UK, Facebook are then planning on getting licenses for the rest of Europe as well.

If Facebook get the necessary licenses to operate in the UK, and maybe the rest of Europe, it might be a real industry changer as Facebok has such a huge customer base. However, the future will tell whether or not people actually wanna play poker for real-money through a Facebook application.

will be real interesting if they start this.
surely many fish will be there but i dont like the idea of playing on a website and surely they will have higher rake.

Whenever talking to someone and poker gets mentioned, lots of times I hear people saying, I play a bit on facefuck, and they are mainly women..so could be a nice boost to the poker industry(in the UK).
And we all know women can't play poker, so should be a huge fish frenzy....

 Macubaas01/12/2011 19:44:08 GMT
Sounds good if you ask me for UK players, as you imagine tons of fish players will be there...

You could win a lot of money out of them compared to more experienced polayers that are registerd on poker platforms.

Well that is interesting news and we will see how real money poker will develop on Facebook, there will be a lot of fish.
 pokerpro198602/12/2011 20:38:38 GMT
hmm...that would be very weird I think. I would not play real money poker on facebook any time soon no matter how many fish there may be! Tongue I feel more comfortable playing at only the actual poker sites
 rbdflyboy02/12/2011 23:23:18 GMT
Although, there are play money sites that do indeed have cash prize tourneys...I quess all would depend on the business model they select. Not to mention the software upgrades...think I'll stick with tried and true. There are already disgruntled members as a result of a beta bubble burst.
 YOdiablo02/12/2011 23:32:41 GMT
All i want to hear about Facebook is that they've gone bankruptcy..That would be a great news
 chumba7704/12/2011 21:17:30 GMT
I wouldn't go near a poker application that uses real money on Facebook of all places, they should stick to what they know which is hosting 65% of the worlds most pointless opinions and news from people's dull existances.

lol Big Smile

Only 65% ? Shock

I thought just me and 28 other people don´t have a Facebook page?
And also, are 35% NOT posting garbage? Shock
 Fakiry05/12/2011 18:37:33 GMT
It sure would be a great business for Fabecook and also for poker industry. "Play money" players would start investing real money on this game and better players who already use other rooms would also start using this new game joining all kinds of players, some looking for a chance to learn more and earn their first real money in the game, others looking for fish.
 psycokiller08/12/2011 05:48:57 GMT
Should facebook go ahead with a real money site? Overall, I believe it would be good for the entire poker community. There should be an overall increase in traffic with primarily weak players (good for the steadies), it would force variou goverments to rethink their position on the topic (probably for the better) and hopefully helps create a better regulated industry thereby forcing shady sites to clean up or get out.
 Chartoule08/12/2011 12:02:21 GMT
Hi all!!

God (of poker) isn´t a good guy. In fact is a f**** bast****. All the fishes is facebook are going to enter in the game and I (and all the spanish players) am going to be out. Poker spanish regulation is RIGGED.

The other 35% are on Twitter Tongue . . . for what it's worth, I have a page that I made in college (when it was college student-exclusive and after intensive insistence from my friend, who I wanted to bang at the time). However, I haven't used the site socially in about 16 months, only "Liking/Recommending" and sharing various junk, mostly to keep my page as politically incorrect and lascivious as possible.

I don't see the rewards of any Faceb00k real money poker client being worth a deposit . . . however I am tempted because I'm sure plenty of total donks who play for fun on there might deposit just to give it a whirl. Of course I'm still not gonna bother because I also doubt the HUD/multi-tabling/tourney format/grinding potential. Being a U.S. citizen, I'm sure it won't be an option even if I was remotely interested! lol Thumbs Down

oh god that would be a fish fest i for sure donT wanna miss
 pochui22/12/2011 14:05:15 GMT
whatever such giants like facebook start its always interesting to see what comes out- how will the end product look, what sort of traffic the room would generate, what sort of promotions would be on offer etc. the same is when google starts cooking up something...
 madicIvan26/12/2011 07:42:53 GMT
If just 20% of those players get into playing for real money, it would be big increase in overall online poker industry, cause they have such a huge base of players.
