Zynga withdraws application for gambling license in Nevada

Zynga has withdrawn its application for a gambling license in the state of Nevada, reports US Poker.

The company formally requested a withdrawal of the application at the Nevada State Gaming Control Board's meeting earlier this month, and the request was approved by the Nevada Gaming Commission during its meeting this week.

Zynga originally filed for a gambling license in Nevada last December, but said this past July that it had decided to focus on free-to-play social games instead, and would not pursue real-money gaming in the U.S. (Zynga is still running tests for real-money gaming in the U.K.).

We've reached out to Zynga for comment, and will update this article with any information we receive.
