After what seems like years of waiting, Zynga has officially launched real-money games. There's just one hitch: Only U.K. players are eligible.
ZyngaPlusPoker and ZyngaPlusCasino are to be run in tandem with bwin.party digital entertainment , which hosts the popular real-money gaming site PartyPoker. Both games will make their way to Facebook and mobile platforms this year, the company said in a blog post.
The net impact of this move on Zynga stock is unknowable at this point, but a change in U.S. law could be a meaningful catalyst for sending the shares higher, says Tim Beyers of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Motley Fool Supernova.
Get Tim's full take in the following video, and then leave a comment to let us know what you think of Zynga's bet on real-money games.
Zynga's post-IPO performance has been dreadful, and investors are beginning to wonder if it's "game over" for this newly public company. Being so closely tied to the world's largest social network can be a blessing and a curse.
