888 Poker in Talks With Facebook Regarding ‘Real Money’ Online Poker

888 Poker has begun talking with Facebook, the social media giant, to bring “real money” online poker to jurisdictions where such activity is permitted, a la Great Britain, according to a report on eGaming Review.

The news comes amidst reports that 888 Holdings second quarter costs have put a strain on margins, though the company is realizing a pretax profit of $18.36 million for the half year ended June 30, compared with loss of $22.10 million a year earlier. Revenue advanced 21% to $186.4 million.

888 Poker is currently ranked as the 4th most trafficked Web cardroom in the world

Facebook earlier in the month launched its first “real money” online gaming venture in the form of what looked like a kid’s bingo site.  Bingo & Slots Friendzy, developed by Gamesys, is only available to those living within the United Kingdom at this time.
