One of our main focuses for 2012 was the convergence of social gaming to that of real money gambling. As the world’s largest social gaming company, Zynga has featured prominently in all our daily updates.  Many experts believe that 2012 would be a year that CEO Mark Zynga would rather forget with so many negative reports. Whether it be the share price dropping by nearly 80%, senior management leaving the company, staff cuts or investor confidence at an all time low.

The New Year could see Zynga laughing all the way to the bank with their real money gambling sites launch. As we reported they had signed an agreement with bwin.party that will enable them to offer real money gaming in the U.K. According to reports the site will offer a comprehensive suite of casino games that include over 180 games that include blackjack, roulette, slots and others.

Zynga have also filed for an “Application for a Preliminary Finding of Suitability” in Nevada which is seen as a step in launching online poker.Only a few days ago we got a glimpse of Zynga’s real-money gaming site with their respective landing pages. Zynga Plus Casino and Zynga Plus Poker will initially be launched in the U.K. where online gambling is legal.

At the moment Zynga is providing us a sneak peak at what we can expect as well as establishing their brand. As a social gaming giant Zynga is taking this theme into their real money gaming option as their slogan “Casino For The People” proves.

In line with CEO Pincus’s statements, both sites will be up and running early in 2013.Many would argue that after such a disappointing 2012 Zynga can only improve. There are also those who believe that Pincus could pull off the ultimate comeback with the real money gaming option drawing closer. We look forward to seeing what this gaming giant has in store for both the social and real money gambling worlds in 2013.
