New domain registration appears to confirm social gaming firm's strong interest in online gambling

The US technology publication Fusible has taken down a report it carried earlier this week concerning the registration of the domain Zyngambling (.com), presumably because it has been unable to verify the factual content of its report with the social gaming giant.

Earlier this week Fusible reported that the social game developer had registered the domain "Zyngambling (.com)", and started work on a supporting website, which included "a header with the Zynga Poker logo and some generic, inactive stat-tracking modules."

At the time of the report the owner of the domain was hidden, although Fusible found an inactive Twitter handle for what's likely to become a Zyngambler brand.

The Zyngambling domain has been knocking around for at least a year, with the original registrant apparently allowing it to expire, whereupon it was picked up and re-registered under a cloaked ownership this week.

Zynga founder and CEO Mark Pincus has made no secret of his company's interest in entering the real money online gambling sector, and has set a target of 2013 by which he hopes to have an enterprise operational.

There were reports last year that Zynga had registered a slew of gambling related domains through a brand protection company, MarkMonitor, and the name surfaced again in the Zyngambling mystery.

Despite attempts by various online media to get a comment on the domain and website, Zynga has so far remained silent.
