The lights are on
Zynga has announced that it will be partnering with the oddly named bwin.party, an online gaming operator, to launch a gambling initiative where people can win (but probably mostly lose) real money.
The gambling initiative will begin next year with a slot machine based on Zynga's popular FarmVille license. This announcement comes shortly after Zynga laid off a large portion of its staff earlier this week.

Oh Zynga, *** you!
OH A BIG COMPANY THAT'S ONLY INTERESTED IN PROFIT?
Just die please. Thanks.
Oh boy, here we go.
Don't care! Zynga has done some shady business...Why should we give them our money? We'll probably lose anyway...
Sounds pretty dumb. Watch your wallets my friends :)
oh dear. please stop.
That's where they belong - taking people's money, especially through addiction.
Nothing about this surprises me; I stopped doing anything facebook related ages ago, and anything Zynga(Farmville) well before that.
I'd sooner trust "Jimmy da Rat" to hold an honest gambling operation. At least now they've dropped the whole facade of "entertainment", for "just give us your monies."
