Wynn Resorts Applies for Nevada Online Poker License: In Talks With Zynga

Wynn Resorts Applies for Nevada Online Poker License: In Talks With Zynga | This Week in Gambling - News | Scoop.it
Wynn Resorts has applied for an online poker license in the state of Nevada this week, possibly signaling the entry of Zynga into the real money poker arena in the United States.


Wynn had entered into a partnership with PokerStars just weeks before that company was indicted by the US Justice Department last year. It immediately pulled out of that arrangement. Wynn is widely believed to be in talks with Zynga to deliver the “real cash” online poker platform. Zynga itself has not applied for a license in Nevada.

Zynga rumored tie up with Wynn

Zynga may enter a joint venture with Wynn Resorts in order to move into the online gambling industry. The New York Post reports the two are in talks as they look to take advantage of future regulation.


It solves a quandary for both sides as Zynga will likely need a land-based office to operate in the U.S. whereas Wynn is seeking a bedfellow with the online know-how and fanbase to start off straight away. It follows Zynga CEO Mark Pincus stating that online gambling was “a good natural fit” for their firm. Pincus has name-checked Wynn before but we should stress that right now it’s just paper talk and it could be a while until any deal is actually signed.
