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.
