A report came this week that social game developer Zynga registered the Zyngambling general, .com domain, and started working on a supporting website, which included “a header with the Zynga Poker logo and some generic, inactive stat-tracking modules.”
Even though various online media have being trying to get a comment on the domain and website, Zynga has so far remained silent.
The Zyngambling domain has been knocking around for at least a year, allowing the original registrant to expire, but then it was re-registered under a cloaked ownership this week.
Interestingly enough, there were some reports last year about Zynga registering a slew of gambling related domains through a brand protection company MarkMonitor, and now in the Zyngambling mystery – the name has surfaced again.
Expressing his company’s interest in entering the real money online gambling sector, Zynga founder and CEO Mark Pincus hopes that in 2013 they will have an enterprise operational.
