    Default Vegas casino launching Facebook game

    The Golden Nugget Casino in Las Vegas, in a partnership with Last Legion Games, is expected to launch its own Facebook game this week. The game is closer to Farmville than it is to Bodog, however, as it involves players building their own casino.

    From Business Insider:

    The basic concept is a fairly obvious one: it lets users build up a casino using the same basic gameplay mechanics behind FarmVille and most other successful Facebook games with actual (play money) gambling, the only other type of game to succeed on the platform.

    The idea has been tried a few times already, but none of the casino games have met with much success thus far. Last Legion argues that the Golden Nugget tie-in and the game's superior graphics and sound will make it a winner.

    There is money to be made in social network gaming. I am sure it won't be long before the launch of the mobile app version.

    This is interesting. I'll have to try it out and see what kind of graphics it has.

    It reminds me of cafe world but I guess I like it so far. It's nice how you can design to fit your style.

    Default Future, is here

    Its interesting to see the actions and moves behind the scenes in preparation for the future, that is already here. Offline & online, China & Social gambling.
    Some are preparing (like Partygaming)and some it seems are fighting the old war(like Bodog).
    I feel & see a disturbance in the force.
    Will the dog just bark or become a shark??

    FarmVille will have it's toughest opponent now!

    At first I guessed that real money will be used on social network poker games like Zynga, but maybe it will take a very long time for this idea to be approved (or it may not happen at all)..

    And then they'll have special items only achievable in exchange of money from any of your virtual cards. Innovative! I think they're envious of the success zynga texas hold 'em poker is enjoying.
