Know When to Fold ‘Em: Zynga Nixes Real Money Gaming in U.S.

Today, however, the once high-flying social game maker announced that it would end its real-money gaming pursuits in the U.S., AllThingsD reported.

Zynga said that it will continue running tests of gaming products in the UK while replanting its FarmVilles and renewing its CityVilles.
