Until now, and in most countries, lottery and betting apps were banned on Google Play. Only Google has authorized since 2017 the applications of real money game in Brazil, Ireland, France and the United Kingdom, but a little over a month will reach 15 more countries for this type of application, with Europe and Mexico included in the list.
As of March 1 The new program policies for developers: games of chance, games and contests with real money will come into force, allowing for the first time games and gaming apps
Real money betting is coming to Google Play
So far, if we wanted to download an app that would allow us to place bets or bet money on games of chance you had to download the APK from its corresponding web page. Its developers were unable to publish this type of application on Google Play.
Now, in just over a month, in Europe, Mexico, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Sweden and USA, as well as UK, Ireland, France and Brazil, we can officially download real money gambling apps, and in complete safety, from google play.
Google Play will allow developers to publish the following types of apps:
- Online casino games.
- sport bets.
- Fantastic sports diarios.
This means that from March we will be able to download apps like state lotteries and betting, the full TuLotero app, or sports betting and online casino apps from the Play Store.
Developers will need to comply with the laws and industry standards of each country, as well as the advertising laws related to real money gambling. Therefore, we will soon see how betting apps and announcements reach our Android devices.
Google advises that apps should be free and do not use Google Play billing. In addition, the application must prevent its use by a minor.
