Mark Pincus is interested in bringing online gambling to his games at Zynga.But where did he get the idea?
Speaking at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media and Telecom conference today, he pointed to his watch.
“I have a fancy watch that I won at The Wynn. I was gambling for a half hour while my wife was shopping. I went in and gambled and won this watch.”
He also said casino games were “more casual and more natural” and have social gaming mechanics built into them. They’re lightweight and naturally social.
So, there you have it.
