Zynga Partners With bwin.party to Launch Real Money Games in the UK

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/zyn...-uk-2012-10-24

I know there are Zynga threads already, but I think this is momentous enough to merit its own.

On the verge of busto ville i posted a link to an article earlier. The facebook games arent making much coin these days.
Doesn't matter too much that they're messing up other areas of their business - people don't look at Zynga's financial reports before signing up to play their games. Recreational players know Zynga so it offers a big opportunity for lots of new signups into the poker world. That is if it is advertised well, and with Bwin there is a very high chance that they'll nail the advertising, hopefully also via Facebook.

Why? You don't have to live in the UK. Zynga players in the UK will be offered real money poker on PartyGaming. Anyone on PartyPoker.com (i.e. most of the world minus the US, Spain, Italy and France) will play with these Zyngaers.

Sorry yes, I was being sarcastic. By the time marketwire.com has put out PR and it has propegated to 2+2, I believe the market will have already responded appropriately.

u sure about this? cuz even bwin players aren't in the same player pool as party poker at the moment, and that merger happened over a year ago.

Re: Zynga Partners With bwin.party to Launch Real Money Games in the UK

maybe im missing something but how is this suppose to be huge. Zynga was a play money poker program on FB. Keyword here is Play Money im pretty sure if people wanted to play for real money they would play on a real money website. And since they're partnering with Bwin.party i would assume they would use Bwin.party software instead of their own.

Do you guys honestly think there will be a correlation between facebook and real money poker? Will they actually be aloud to just have it so you can log into your fb account, and play some real money poker? Seems to good to be true..

Just to set the record straight Zygna poker the most liked facebook page of all time...Zygna poker...30 million+ freeplay users a month...The advertising power and a conversion rate is a conversion rate. And btw playmoney players use real money to buy playchips and it created a market in which people have methods of buying & selling playchips and a close friend of mine made a living being one of the top people in doing this making thousands a month.

If 1% of the people that have played poker on Facebook deposit 500$ a year on this it will already be huge. I'm not sure wether this will be the case, but it is worthy the gamble. Also Zynga needs to diversify heavily anyway, they are going through the phase every flash game developper goes through, succesful at first and then they run out of good ideas and can't create a turnover anymore.
