The future is already here with the contract that was signed between Facebook and 888.com, the well known and extremely successful online gaming company based in Gibraltar. In August of this year the first group of the new real money games accessed through Facebook were launched under the app name of Friendzy. To begin with only bingo and a couple of slot games are available but that the plan is that more games will be available soon including Roulette and Blackjack. Players are able to place up to 500GBP a day in bets using their credit or debit cards. There are strict controls in place to make sure that players are over the age of 18 and 888.com together with Facebook have the ability to check the IP address of each player in order to make sure they are where they say they are and they are who they say they are. At the moment the new games on Facebook are only available for UK players where the gambling restrictions are controlled but lighter than other countries. Both 888.com and Facebook are very excited about the new real money casino games offered and believe that this is the start of an era of social gaming.
