iGaming Business – Social gaming company Zynga has moved to bolster its online poker offering by launching a new title in the form of Zynga Poker Classic.

The new game is due to launch on iOS in the coming week and on the Android platform later in the year.

Zynga Poker Classic will deliver familiar gameplay that Zynga customers have become accustomed to on the firm’s social poker offering as well as new features such as leagues to help inspire competition.

Jon Liu, vice-president of games at Zynga Poker, said that the title has been developed in response to customer feedback on the new Zynga Poker game, which was launched in September and has generated significant interest amongst players.

He said that customers will be able to transfer not only their chips but also profile and history between both titles in order to allow them to access each game without delay.

“To meet the demand we are seeing for both games, we will soon offer two distinct products – Zynga Poker Classic and the new Zynga Poker,” Liu said in his blog on the Zynga website.
