Google has allowed gambling and betting apps on its Play Store that will be available for users in 15 countries including the US. Currently, gambling apps are only allowed in four countries: Brazil, France, Ireland, and the UK.
From March 1, the new policy changes in Google Play Store will allow authorised and legal gambling apps like online casino games, lotteries, sports betting and daily fantasy sports that will depend on whether these gambling apps are allowed in the approved countries.
The new rules will permit gambling apps in Australia, Belgium, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and the US.
Google said that the new rules applies as long as the developer completes the application process for gambling apps being distributed on Play, is an approved governmental operator and/or is registered as a licensed operator with the appropriate governmental gambling authority in the specified country.
