NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Zynga's (ZNGA) headquarters are nothing short of amazing, with lights all over, a variety of video games as far as the eye can see, and engineers all working on the latest from the San Francisco-based social gaming company.
I recently had a chance to sit down with Mike Gupta, Zynga's Vice President Finance and Treasurer, to discuss a wide array of initiatives, including gambling, the company's relationship with Facebook (FB), console gaming, and Zynga's sinking share price.
Chris Ciaccia: What's Zynga's future as it relates to online gambling? Is that something the company is exploring?Mike Gupta: It is something we're exploring. We think it's an interesting adjacency to what we do in our core business. We also think we have an interesting asset in Zynga Poker, which is the world's largest online game, with over 30 million monthly average users, or players. We think we have an interesting asset, we are exploring the space, but at this time, we don't have anything specific to announce.
