Zynga has acquired a social casino studio that was founded, once upon a time, by former Zynga executive Maytal Olsha.
Rising Tide Games was founded in 2014 by Olsha, Stuart Zoble, Andrew Sega and Peter Franco – who will all now join Zynga.
"We are excited to welcome the deeply talented Rising Tide Games team to Zynga, as we continue to expand our Social Casino game offerings," said Zynga CEO Mark Pincus.
"Zynga has a long history in the Social Casino space, as Zynga Poker is the original social game and remains the world's largest free poker game. We look forward to our Poker and Slots teams continuing to deliver games that delight our players."
Olsha previously held the position of head of social slots and RMG at Zynga, before founding Rising Tide and gaining investment from Raine Ventures and Entrée Capital.
