Zynga Poker iPhone App Has Great Year
Game Tops 2012 Chart For Revenue In The U.K. And U.S.
Struggling Zynga Inc. can take some solace in its “social” poker application being the highest-grossing game in the U.S. and U.K. for Apple’s iPhone in 2012, the Guardian reported.
Zynga has applied to be involved with a Nevada online poker market, which could expand beyond its borders if the feds ever legalize the activity or state partnerships form.
The firm has the most successful free-play poker game on the Internet, boasting millions of monthly users. However, the big question is what percentage could be converted to real-money players in a regulated American market.
Zynga doesn’t have a Nevada partner yet, but there were reports of talks with Wynn Resorts.
The California-based company does most of its business with Facebook.
