888 Strikes Deal With Facebook 16.12.2012

Roulette News

It’s official: 888 Holdings and Facebook have struck a deal in which 888 Casino will offer real-money gambling on Facebook. This is an exciting step forward for both the gaming company and social networking sites as they join forces to give members of both sites the best of each world.

Now, players around the world will need to hold off on their excitement and the real-money gaming of Facebook will only be available to those living in the UK for now. This is because the UK has had a fully regulated market for quite some time and offers an excellent test ground for the new venture. If things go well and as expected in the UK, hopefully more gambling jurisdictions will be included. The deal includes many games. Bingo is expected to launch first and will then be followed by a selection of high quality slot games and casino games including roulette and blackjack.

However, not everyone is happy about the idea of real-money gaming on Facebook. Many critics have voiced their concerns that adding gambling to a social networking site that has thousands and thousands of underage users could create “a new generation of problem gamblers.” Reputable casinos, such as 888 Casino, take precautionary measures to identify underage gamblers and problem gamblers. It only stands to reason that 888 Holdings and Facebook will combine efforts to do the same. One measure already announced is that players will have to use a credit or debit card to add money to their accounts and their personal details, including age, will be checked against their profile of Facebook and the electoral register.
