Zynga Partners With Bwin.Party For Poker In U.K.
FarmVille To Also Become Real-Money Slots Game Under Deal
On Wednesday, Zynga and bwin.party digital entertainment announced a partnership to offer real-money online poker and other casino games in the United Kingdom next year.
The deal will see the two firms combine player pools under one platform.
“Bringing together Zynga’s expertise in social gaming with the top international real money gaming operator is the best way to create the highest quality gaming experiences for our players in the UK,” Barry Cottle, an executive at Zynga, said in a press release. “Partnering with an established leader like bwin.party is a strategic and prudent way for us to enter a key RMG market while giving local players the real money games they’ve been asking us for.”
A version of FarmVille will exist as a real-money slots game.
Bwin.party’s partnership with Zynga will be under the scope of its Gibraltar license.
