Zynga has become one of the more ubiquitous purveyors of online games and it's also well known for its free to play mobile games — now it hopes to nickel-and-dime players to death with its entry into true online gambling. ZyngaPlusPoker and ZyngaPlusCasino are launching on April 3rd in the UK and will let players gamble real money in a variety of games including Blackjack, Roulette, Baccarat, and, of course, multiple poker options. For starters, these games will be available either through your browser or a downloaded app, but Zynga says it wants to launch social versions on Facebook and mobile apps at some point during 2013. Zynga is partnering with, a company that it calls "one of the largest and most reputable real money gaming operators worldwide." There's no word yet on when Zynga's real money games might roll out to other parts of the world, but online gambling is making a bit of a legal resurgence in the US — it wouldn't surprise us to see Zynga set its sights here next.
