Whether it’s because there’s potentially lots of cash to be produced in gaming or the business is finally just giving in, Google will be lifting its ban on gaming programs in that the Google Play store. According to a report by Andrew Daniels, the managing director of high-tech company Degree 53, e-mails have been moving out to online gaming companies notifying them of the change in policy.
Gambling programs are banned from the Google Play shop, far and away the most frequent origin for Android programs, since 2013. Google’s Developer Policy Center site still has the principle in place:-LRB-*********************************)
“We don’t allow content or services that facilitate online gambling, including but not limited to, online casinos, sports betting, lotteries, or games of skill that offer prizes of cash or other value.”
Google does allow gambling advertisements, provided that they abide by local laws and regulations, don’t target children (aren’t in programs geared towards children, by way of instance), the landing page for your ad has responsible gambling advice, and the program in that the advertisement appears isn’t a play-money gambling program.
Two of Degree 53’s clients are gaming firms BetFred and 888 Holdings. Andrew Daniels reported he received a copy of the e-mail from Google, which was sent to companies in the UK, Ireland, and France.
