Facebook's Just Become the New Electronic Vegas

By Sam Gibbs on at

I don't know about you, but I'm not even the slightest bit interested in online bingo, but it seems vast swathes of the UK are absolute fanatics. Now you can even gamble away your hard earned cash on Facebook -- there really is no escape.

The social network has just launched Bingo Friendzy, which deprives you of real money in exchange for an instant hit of crappy gambling action. You have to be 18 and over, and be in the UK, but you can now take online bingo social, you lucky things.

God help us when Zynga launches its real-money gambling assault. Apparently it's planning to bust out new versions of its bingo and pocker games, along with a plethora of new slot games. Facebook's just become the new electronic Vegas, eugh. [FT]
