Zynga withdraws Nevada online gambling application

There is not much information regarding the reasons for Zynga’s sudden withdrawal for an online gambling license in the state of Nevada. The state’s Gaming Control Board has confirmed there is an entry in its agenda indicating that the social gaming giant has indeed filed a “request to withdraw application.”

What is not surprising however is the fact that Zynga has been going though a rough patch during the last year. Just a few months after applying for the Nevada license to launch and operate a real-money online poker site, Zynga decided to make a complete change of strategy.

After publishing its second quarter earnings report, Zynga realized things would not get better and proceeded to stop persuing an entry into the real-money online poker industry and to replace their CEO and co-founder Mark Pincuss with gaming guru and former Microsoft Xbox and PC division head, Don Mattrick.
