The puzzle pieces are creating a clear picture as to the steps Zynga is taking into its undoubted venture into real money gambling. eGR released a report this morning stating that there are a number of factoids leading to the social gaming operators preparations.
One such is the filing of several patents throughout 2012, 89 patents were filed with 38 acquired from Walker Digital, a software company previously in patent legalities with Zynga.
Zynga’s patent includes one for a wagering machine, central slot machine server with the remaining 51 patents, “believed to be most likely developed in-house, include technology to manage virtual currency and gifting solutions and online multiplayer technology.”
Back in December 2012, Zynga filed a preliminary application to run real-money gambling games in Nevada. The social games developer has hopes that proposed legislation to regulate gaming across the U.S. will open a lucrative real-money market making up for a continuing losses in revenue from its games like “FarmVille.”
