Zynga, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZNGA) moved up on online gambling approval.

"This is an historic day for the great state of Nevada," Sandoval was quoted as saying. "Today I sign into law the framework that will usher in the next frontier of gaming in Nevada."
Zynga, which provides the popular Zynga Texas Hold &aposEm and Slots apps, has looked to online gambling as a way to expand its revenue base beyond advertising and in-game purchases.
