Zynga ( ZNGA) was also a big mover before market open, gaining 7.76% to $2.50, after the company moved closer to the world of Real Money Games (RMG).

"This filing continues our strategic effort to enter regulated RMG markets in a prudent way," said Barry Cottle, Zynga's chief revenue officer, in a statement emailed to TheStreet. "We anticipate that the process will take approximately 12 to 18 months to complete."

"When I go into my living room and turn on the TV, I feel like I have gone backwards in time by 20 to 30 years," Cook said. "It's an area of intense interest. I can't say more than that."
