Tencent Holdings will shut the popular Texas Hold'Em poker video game, the Chinese technology company told its users on Monday, in a further step to comply with intensifying government regulation of the country's gaming industry.

Tencent said it would formally begin to shutter Texas Hold'Em from Monday and would close the game's server from September 25. Tencent would compensate users in accordance with the regulations of Ministry of Culture.

A Tencent spokesman said the plan to shutter the game was a "business adjustment" but declined to comment further.
