re: Poker & Zynga Applies for Nevada Online Poker License
San Francisco-based Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA) will unveil its new real money gambling Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) games, ZyngaPlusPoker and ZyngaPlusCasino, at an event in Barcelona on Wednesday.
Sean Ryan, head of game partnerships at Facebook, is showcasing the Facebook titles for Zynga. Both are gambling versions of Zynga’s similar social games, produced in partnership with Bwin.party, a British real money online gambling company.
Zynga said social gaming remained its heart and soul but understood real gambling games were the next logical step for players who wanted to bet real money and take real winnings.
