Zynga Inc, famous for Facebook gambling simulation games such as Farmville, launched a real money online casino on Wednesday in Britain this week.
The imminent launch was announced on 2 April earlier this week, and rocked the world of online gambling.
This is the first real money gambling venture for the group, which hired Maytal Osha, the former 888 Holdingâ€™s senior executive, specifically for masterminding the move.
The new online casino, which will host new ventures â€˜ZyngaPlusPokerâ€™ and â€˜ZyngaPlusCasinoâ€™ will only be available to Zynga gamers playing within the United Kingdom. The online casino is to host a download casino, an online casino and a mobile casino, with a selection of traditional casino games such as Blackjack and poker, as well as more Zynga-inspired games.
