Zynga Pulls Nevada Online Poker License Application

San Francisco based social gaming firm Zynga has officially pulled out of the Nevada online poker market by withdrawing its application for an e-Gaming license, a reporter from USPoker.com claims.

Zynga's licensing withdrawal was noticed by John Mehaffey of the poker site, who claims that Zynga's request to withdraw its application is listed on the Nevada Gaming Control Board preliminary agenda for the month of September.

Zynga announced earlier this year that it would be withdrawing its plans to offer real money gambling in the United States, instead focusing on free to play social games, which are popular on platforms such as Facebook.

Currently Zynga offers real money gaming in the United Kingdom, as it partnered with gaming giant Bwin to offer real money poker and casino games based on its popular social titles.
