In the closing parts of 2012, Facebook and 888 Holdings announced their partnership to the world. This move, set to be one of the biggest the online casino world has ever seen, will allow 888 holdings to increase the usability and provide new and exciting casino games, created by Facebook, to players, starting in the United Kingdom.
Facebook, a self proclaimed â€œmobile-first companyâ€ has been a long standing advocate for the legalisation of online gambling, both in its native America and most recently, the United Kingdom, when it applied for a UK gambling licence. With the help of 888 Holdings, one of the biggest online casino operators in the world, Facebook hopes to create and launch a variety of different casino games. Already in operation is the Facebook powered real money, Bingo Friendzy game, but soon to follow will be the likes of Slots, similar to the ever popular â€œSlotomaniaâ€ game, Video Poker and other casino games, which will be built for all mobile platforms including IOS, Android and Microsoft Mobile devices.
The final push, would be to move operations further abroad to the likes of Spain, Germany and France and the final move, will hopefully be into the US market, which although still fighting to keep online gambling illegal, will no doubt fall to the pressure of the fans and the money which can be made by the corporations and organisations, will both play a vital role in the legalisation of online gambling within the United States of America.
