IGT is shutting down its European online poker ops due to regulations that barred users in some nations from playing against users in other nations. The move comes only a year after IGT paid $115M to acquire European online poker concern Entraction Holding; the company still plans to offer online bingo, slots, and sports betting on the continent. IGT's about-face could spell trouble for Zynga (ZNGA), which is prepping a 1H13 international online gambling launch.
