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.

I'm a stock n00b so I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or not but I'm guessing you are?
