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.
