Zynga Adds Real Money Gambling:  Spends $75k on Lobbying Efforts

The Wall Street Journal late Wednesday reported that Zynga, the publicly traded social gaming behemoth, has spent upwards of $75,000 lobbying in the United States to legalize online gambling.  The primary focus up to this point appears to be in the state of California, where a current measure to legalize Web poker in the Golden State is expected to die by month’s end.

Zynga, which operates the world’s biggest free-to-play online poker room, apparently won’t be waiting around for Congress to act in the US as it was in the process of adding a real money platform the company hopes to have up and running by early next year. 

The real cash gambling aspect of Zynga’s games will likely be offered only in countries that embrace such activity.  Facebook recently introduced real money online gambling in the United Kingdom, much to the dismay of many mums across that nation.
