Zynga Real Money Gambling Begins Today

US based social media gaming firm Zynga announced that its UK real money gambling operation will launch today, with more than 160 games going live.

The firm's two brands supporting the launch will be ZyngaPlusPoker, and ZyngaPlusCasino, which will offer punters real money versions of its popular free play social games. Included in the launch will be a slot version of the popular game "FarmVille".

The real money Zynga gaming site is the result of a partnership between the San Francisco based company and gambling giant Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment.

Punters can gamble through both Facebook and the respective Zynga sites. A mobile version of the casino is slated to be released later this year.
