Google today welcomed popular game “CityVille” to its small collection of social games on Google+. Google once again used its valuable homepage space to promote the popular Zynga game, just as it promoted Google Offers and the opening of Google+ recently.

cityville-google-plusCityVille is Zynga’s largest game on Facebook, with about 70 million users per month, according to AppData.

Earlier today, we reported that Google+ may have more than 43 million+ users. Google+ also became the eighth most visited social networking site, attracting 15 million U.S. visits during the week of September 17 to 24 – growth of 1,269 percent – Hitwise reported.

When Google+ Games launched with its first 16 games, including “Angry Birds” and another popular Zynga title, “Zynga Poker,” it was revealed Google will take a 5 percent cut of in-game purchases, as compared to Facebook’s 30 percent cut. Google invested somewhere between $100 million and $200 million in Zynga last year.

“It’s no secret we’re big fans of Google+ here at Zynga,” Zynga wrote in a blog post. “…naturally we wanted to ‘build’ a presence for it on Google+. Ultimately, we want to make our games accessible to everyone, everywhere – no matter where they play or what platform they play on.”
