Could Facebook’s be Launching an Online Gambling Product?

Facebook is holding a mystery press event and speculation is rife over what CEO Mark Zuckerberg is set to announce.

Could Facebook’s be Launching an Online Gambling Product?

Online gamblers are hoping that Facebook’s press event will in some way relate to future online gambling products.

With Facebook set upon making larger profits some are hoping that a new online gambling product will be announced, or at least some technology which will be beneficial to those who enjoy online gambling.

Over the last year Facebook has been focusing on the mobile side of the business and has hugely benefited from its mobile apps.

The apps include games such as Slotomania and Slots Farm and their popularity has encouraged Facebook to further pursue online gambling.

Last month Facebook signed an agreement with 888 Holding to launch real-money gambling products, bingo and then casino games.

Similarly Facebook is ready to enter the regulated UK online gambling market and has joined the campaign to legalise it in the US.

However, this is no guarantee that the press event will have anything to do with online gambling. Popular rumours include the launch of Facebook search or even a Facebook phone. Nonetheless only time will tell so watch this space.

With a background in game development spanning 8 years, Sam Peterson is OCA’s leading authority in the world of online gaming. His focuses include new releases and gaming providers.
