Games with social network elements are fast becoming a huge industry. Its foundations can be found in two industries, which until now have been somewhat distinct:
Online gambling - internet casinos, bingo, video games
Social networks - mainly Facebook
The social gaming market is dominated by casino games, largely because of the technological edge that online gambling has. Social games publishers such as Zynga lead the new industry.
Social Gaming Event
Picking up on this developing trend, iGaming Business has set up a new event for casino-style social gaming: The Social Gambling Conference 2012.
