I love all of the talk about Wynn possibly partnering with Zynga BUT
I just checked Wynn's message board and there is no one talking about that possibility. I would think if this was going to happen, Wynn shareholders would also be talking about the opportunity. Just saying.... I know that Wynn's CEO has had talks within Pincus along time ago, but this is OLD news. I hope it comes true but lets not get our hopes up.
All that I'm saying is GREAT if it happens BUT the Zynga board has been the only source for this rumor or speculation. Look I would think if it was a material rumor, we'd see something on Wynn's message board. I find NOTHING about Zynga and a partnership. I agree that Wynn needs Zynga, but I guess we will have to see after hours what happens.
Why do you have to see it on WYNN message board? They are not missing on Jersey. There is no way. Look at everything that has been lining up for the past couple of months. Did you see a new CEO talk on this board before Mattrick was hired?
Chief Executive Mark Pincus said Wednesday he sees "mind blowing" possibilities for weaving real-money gambling into social games pending regulatory changes in the U.S., and suggested the company may partner with a traditional casino company before the end of this year. Pincus, speaking at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media & Telecom Conference, said his San Francisco-based company sees a great deal of opportunity "to start to bring this gambling element into more than just casino games." "The amount of innovation you're going to see around gambling as an entertainment mechanic is going to be mind blowing," he said. Zynga's CEO suggested the company may partner with traditional casino firms such as Wynn Resorts Ltd. (WYNN)--where Pincus mentioned he once won enough money in a single sitting to buy himself a "fancy watch." "We're definitely talking to all of the players that you would suspect," Pincus said, adding, "We have incredible respect and admiration for brands and groups like the Wynn... I would expect that you'll see a lot of these players kind of figure out their go-to-market partnerships for sure before the end of this year." Pincus's comments come as several states consider allowing online gambling, and large casino companies press the federal government to allow online poker networks. Pincus noted that real money gaming would be a natural fit for Zynga, which already draws tens of millions of players to its Zynga Poker game. Unlike current games such as Zynga Poker, real money gambling games would involve more than just virtual currency that cannot be converted into cash. -
