Big Fish teams with Betable, brings real-money gaming to U.K.

Casual game developer Big Fish today announced it is joining with Betable and bringing real-money gambling to the United Kingdom with Big Fish Casino, a re-branded version of the social mobile casino game Card Ace: Casino.
Big Fish Casino is developed by Self Aware Studios, which Big Fish recently acquired. The game includes gambling like slots, blackjack, Texas Hold’em Poker and roulette, as well as real-time socialization features. Players who are in the U.K. will be able to engage in real-money gaming, powered by Betable. Betable’s real-money gaming platform allows developers to implement real-money gaming with a minimal amount of effort. Because the company’s servers are based in the U.K. the service can operate on a global scale, except in countries where online gambling is explicitly prohibited.
Although real-money gaming is still illegal in the United States because of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006, it’s very much a part of U.K. culture. As a result, several companies are starting to double down and create social casino games that allow players to gamble with actual cash. Two weeks ago, Gamesys launched the first such app on Facebook with Bingo Friendzy.
Big Fish Casino is available for iOSFacebook, Android and Kindle.
