Facebook Introduces Real-Money Online Bingo Games

Bingo fans everywhere are rejoicing after Facebook announced it would begin to provide real-money online bingo games on its social platform.

Facebook has partnered with Gamesys, the operator who supports popular brand Jackpotjoy Bingo, to produce Bingo Friendzy, the bingo game that supports real-money transactions. It’s the first of its kind for the social network and it’s seen as the ideal starting point because bingo is already such a social game.

Bingo Friendzy will be followed shortly by Slots Friendzy and there is talk of introducing real-money casino games like blackjack and roulette. Facebook is in talks to expand its offerings but nothing has yet been decided.

Bingo Friendzy is available to players over the age of 18 who reside in Britain. The market was viewed as an excellent entry point because gambling is extremely popular and the market is well-regulated.

So far bingo blog sites have announced its arrival but there is little feedback on the game itself, with Facebook reporting 200 monthly users as opposed to Bingo Blitz’s 2.4million monthly users. The Facebook version does not yet offer the same bonus structure available at an average online bingo site, with no hint of bonuses, loyalty points or promotions. These are likely to be introduced over the coming months as the game picks up momentum.
