Facebook have launched a new real money online bingo game to players in the United Kingdom on the popular Social Media site.
The Social Network giant has eyed the possibilities for some time and the launch of this new social bingo game will undoubtedly be its first foray into real money games.
The new game called Bingo Friendzy is live and can already be played. Bingo Friendzy has been developed by Gamesys who run the popular Jackpot Joy Bingo brands in the UK.
This marks a big shift in the way that people are able to play bingo games. Previously Facebook Bingo games were funded with virtual currency and there were no real cash prizes.
This shift from Virtual Currency to Real Money is massive. Online Bingo is massively popular in the United Kingdom and it is without a doubt the most popular form of light entertainment that adults partake in.
At the present, Bingo Friendzy is only available to players in the UK.
The head of Facebook Gaming in Europe and Africa had the following to say
“Gambling is very popular and well regulated in the UK … for millions of bingo users it’s already a social experience, it makes sense to offer that as well.”
Only time will tell how popular Bingo Friendzy will become but chances are that it will work extremely well.Facebook Bingo games are a popular form of entertainment.
Just how this new Real Money Facebook Bingo Game will appeal to players who are used to playing games for free is another matter entirely.
We do believe that there is a place for these games, we also believe that nothing will ever replace the traditional old school Online Bingo games.
That is how fast technology is now moving. Online Bingo rooms are now considered to be old hat by us.
