The renowned social gambling giant Zynga is rumored to prepare its very own online poker site in United States. The software for the upcoming platform is said to be in development at online gambling software providers GTechG2 and Playtech.
Naturally, these are all rumors at this stage, but their sheer volume might suggest that some of them are actually true. It’s a common fact that many operators and gambling software companies are waiting impatiently for the American gambling laws to change and allow real money gaming.
Zynga, of course, doesn’t want to lag behind. The rumors speculate that both Playtech and GTechG2 have succeeded to acquire an inside track to potential contracts, which will ultimately allow Zynga to provide real money online poker action.
According to United States gambling news, both gambling software giants have already applied for Nevada online gambling licensing, yet another fact indirectly supporting the recent rumors.
Mark Pincus of Zynga, has never denied that he’s very optimistic about the possibility to offer real money online poker games in the USA, provided the necessary shift in legislation. The company has been previously associated with Wynn Resorts and other gambling industry giants on talks about such possibility.
Another set of rumors suggest that Zynga is one of the six buyer interested in the Ongame poker network, currently owned by Bwin. This could serve as yet another confirmation of Zynga’s interest in real money online poker gambling.
Introduction of real money poker games could possibly be carried out through Zynga’s proprietary website, due to the company’s current strategy of distancing from Facebook, their long-standing partner.
