Betting Enters the Social Media Arena

Betting Enters the Social Media ArenaAlways at the forefront of change, innovation and moving forwards, Ladbrokes has become the first online gaming company able to accept real money wagers via social networking site Facebook. Talk about mixing pleasure with pleasure! This service is going to be a sure fire hit with social media lovers and racing fans alike.

At the moment, the service is sports betting based, but it’s only a matter of time until this is grown, developed and evolves to include casino games too. As it stands, betting and social media has been combined allowing players to follow tipsters, place bets, share their tips and their real money bets with like minded fans and even deposit and withdraw funds directly to/from their Ladbrokes account!

We can’t wait to see how this service takes off and will be the first to let you know as soon as something similar exists for us Netent casino lovers. Innovation is essential in the online gaming world, but as soon as someone has an original idea, the rest are soon to follow, so I believe we’ll see lots of similar services, hopefully including casino gaming, popping up in the very near future.
