Zynga Poker Update

by

PokerClassicEmailBannerComingSoon

To our Zynga Poker community,

I want to give you another update on the new Zynga Poker and how we are taking your feedback to heart to provide you with the best social poker experience.

In early September, we launched the new Zynga Poker and set out to reimagine the game with an entirely new experience for mobile. We created the new game based on the feedback you’ve given us over the years and introduced a new sophisticated design and feature set that inspires more competition, authenticity and social connections between friends.

Since the launch, we have been hard at work listening closely to you and getting important feedback on your experience. We value all of our player communities and want you to know that we take the introduction of new products and features very seriously. We have heard from many of you that you like the look and feel of the new Zynga Poker, while others miss the classic design and play style of the original game.

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. We want to fuel your passion for poker, no matter if you want to play the traditional Zynga Poker Classic or experience the innovative new Zynga Poker. By giving you two poker games, you now have the option to choose how you play.

The original game, which will return soon as Zynga Poker Classic, offers familiar gameplay that stays true to our traditional mobile poker experience that so many of you have enjoyed over the last six years. The new Zynga Poker will continue to offer the core game, along with new features that inspire competition and mastery such as Leagues. Both Zynga Poker Classic and the new Zynga Poker will allow you to easily switch between games and transfer status from one experience to the other. Your profile, history and chips will also transfer seamlessly, so whichever poker game you choose, you will be able to get into the action fast and connect with friends inside the experience that suits your style.

We expect Zynga Poker Classic to be available on iOS in the coming weeks and across Android later this year. Our teams remain committed to delivering the high quality experiences you expect across all platforms, and we look forward to sharing more details on the return of Zynga Poker Classic and the ongoing evolution of the new Zynga Poker.

We want to thank you, all our loyal poker players, for your support and continued feedback.

Best,

Jon B. Liu

Vice President of Games, Zynga Poker

Words With Friends “Love Letters”: Two Players Ignite a Lasting Friendship Through Smart Match

by

Crystal Matula Words With Friends

Since 2009, millions of players connect and compete each day through word-play in Words With Friends. In celebration of the game’s five year anniversary, we’re sharing a few of our most inspiring stories of how players have connected with their family, friends and even random opponents in their own words. From strengthening existing relationships to fostering new friendships and even romances, their stories spell out how a passion for wordy competition means so much more than the tiles on the game board.  The connections made through Words With Friends are the reason the game has reached this meaningful five year milestone. We hope you’re as inspired by the anniversary “love letters” from our loyal players as much as we are!

Dear Words With Friends,

I have established a very meaningful friendship with a woman I now consider to be a motherly figure and important friend in my life, all thanks to Words With Friends! I first learned of the game by word of mouth when and played random opponents through the Smart Match feature, which is exactly how I met this very special woman named Jackie.

After we started playing, our friendship began with a simple introduction through the in-game chat.  We exchanged chats for a while until she explained that she has having difficulty typing on her phone. As a result, we exchanged email addresses and began to share more personal stories, which fostered a deeper friendship.

Jackie volunteers at animal sanctuaries and aquariums and loves to travel, most recently to Israel. She sends my family and I special mementos from her travels. For example, my son collects foreign currency as a hobby and she was so kind to send a bag of coins and bills for him to add to his collection – a very thoughtful and unexpected gift!

Our friendship blossomed over the years. We’ve laughed and cried with each other. We’ve rejoiced in accomplishments and carried each other’s grief. We’ve seen illness and death, moves, loss, joy, and happiness. We communicate entirely through hand-written cards, e-mails and Words With Friends in-game chat. Jackie has seen my children grow through the years from photos that I’ve sent her and considers them as her “adopted grandchildren”.  My husband and I have been close to tears by how much she’s touched our lives.

Jackie is a fantastic Words With Friends player – definitely better than me and we’ve been playing for about five years. I primarily play to connect and spend time with her, not to win the game. For me, it’s about the connection we’ve established.

For Jackie and I, the game really is “words with friends”. Thank you for creating something that really connects people to each other. Having Jackie as a friend has truly touched our lives.

Happy 5th Year Anniversary!
