Bingo Friendzy Becomes Facebook’s First Real-Money gaming App


Facebook has done something rather monumental overseas, launching the first real-money gambling app called “Bingo Friendzy.” The app offers UK users a selection of bingo and slots games allowing them to pay directly with cash rather than using Facebook’s credits system. Like other gambling operations, the UK is ┬áheavily regulated–making that market an ideal start to see how the model works for Facebook. The actual app’s signup system is entirely form Facebook’s own, requiring new users to enter an email address and physical address rather than logging in via Facebook directly, obviously for liability purposes.
