Zynga further boosted by $180m VC fund

A Russian investment firm that previously invested $200m in social network leader Facebook has backed Mafia Wars and FarmVille developer Zynga to the power of $180m.

The New York Times reports that Digital Sky Technologies’ influx of cash has raised several eyebrows on the North American West Coast, both amongst Silicon Valley investors and those who have already questioned the suitability of DST’s backers.

The move means that Zynga now has an approximate valuation of between $1.5bn-$3bn.
