The gambling culture of the UK is radically different from anything we have in the United States. Sure, we have casinos and riverboats and Las Vegas/Atlantic City, but in the United Kingdom, gambling is a totally different animal. If you want to wager on a game or bet money on sports, you can do that pretty much anywhere, both in meatspace and online. Now, that gambling access extends all the way to Facebook. Friendzy Bingo, a real-money gambling app for Facebook, has made its UK debut.
“Real-money gaming is a popular and well-regulated activity in the U.K., and we are allowing a partner to offer their games to adult users on the Facebook platform in a safe and controlled manner,” a Facebook spokesperson told the BBC.
Gamesys, the company behind Friendzy Bingo, operates JackpotJoy.com, the UK’s top online slot and bingo website. Hence, they have a lot of experience in the area. The game will be limited to adults 18 and up, and players will be able to set limits on how much they can spend. There will also be self-help tools to reduce and control gambling addiction.Technorati Tags: facebook, facebook and gambling app, facebook gambling, facebook gaming, friendzy bingo, gambling on facebook, gamesys, real money gambling on facebook
