Apple announced some changes to their App Store Guidelines last month, which settled that all gambling Apps that offer real money should be free, properly licensed with the accurate local permissions, and limited to those locations.

As well, any Mobile Casino App or Gambling Apps shouldn’t offer credit to users by App purchase.

Google Play has now updated its own policies related to Apps that entail gambling in any form for cash or equivalent prizes. While gambling Apps have been proscribed from Google Play by now, the guideline has now been extended to include other several social games that many would not classify as gambling.

Google has settled that they will not accept products from App developers “that facilitate online gambling”, “including but not limited to, online casinos, sports betting and lotteries, or games of skill” anymore, which means that if the Apps give the opportunity to gain financially from the game, they will no longer be allowed. Google Play has give developers a month to check and modify their content, or if is the case, remove the apps from the platform.

Is well known the competence between Google Play and Apple’s App Store, so this move from Google is considered bolt, but the two of them have clearly aimed to a vague area which straddles morality and legality. Nevertheless, it looks like  Apple may have reached a far more practical way out, which was strictly regulate any Apps that offer economic rewards, whether based on luck or skills, instead of removing them from the platform.

Fortunately, there are some online casinos as in which you can play from your browser directly and do not need to download any App. Click on Casino440 banner and register your account in less than 60 seconds and you will have access to the best casino games and best promotions for mobile players.
