Why can't Zynga still piggyback with Bwin in Jersey?
For some reason or another everyone is saying they abandoned RMG in US, when they clearly stated they will not be pursuing a "license". I am still confused on this. If U.K. was doing so horribly (or they didnt think it was good enough ROI) why launch on Facebook and why launch in Italy and Spain? And why can't they partner with Bwin in Jersey? Look at the article below posted a couple weeks ago....“We have chosen a ‘build and partner’ strategy, one that provides us with both the resources and additional management expertise to execute our planned extension into social gaming,”
Sounds to me like they want a partner in social gaming in every aspect.

Bwin.party has revealed plans to launch a new social sports betting application on Facebook.
Announced within the company’s H1 trading update, bwin.party confirmed the application to be in testing within a closed environment on Facebook. The company expects to launch the application in August, the same month in which it relaunches its real-money online poker offering.
Bwin.party formed its social division, Win Interactive, In May 2012, pledging to invest US$50m in the division over a two-year period. Win signed its first social sports deal with Nordeus in September last year, and this app will be the first social sports product launch to emerge since the agreement was signed.
Win Interactive was formed in May 2012 after bwin.party acquired assets of Ukraine-based development studio Orneon, and is overseen by group CEO Norbert Teufelberger with day-to-day operations headed up by former Mytopia CEO Barak Rabinowitz.
“We have chosen a ‘build and partner’ strategy, one that provides us with both the resources and additional management expertise to execute our planned extension into social gaming,” Teufelberger said at the time.
