The tantalising prospect of real money poker action on Facebook could be a reality for players in the UK as early as next year according to a report from EGRMagazine.com.
The world's largest social network is reportedly in talks with a number of operators including 888Poker, PokerStars and Gamesys with up to eight licences set to be awarded. According to EGR, Facebook has already begun hiring staff for the project with real-money gambling apps already in the pipeline.Precise details have yet to be confirmed but the partnership deals with operators would suggest that games would be for real money rather than using Facebook branded virtual credits. Around 30m users currently play online poker on Facebook via Zynga Poker. This of course if for play money rather than real cash though.Facebook, which previously barred online gambling advertising, has recently loosened its rules and now allows iGaming content as long as it is authorised by the site and is legal in the specific country.
