Once that is completed, just go to the gaming site of choice and click the link provided on the site to download the app, which will usually be in the kind of a file with an “.apk” extension. Once it is downloaded, click on the file in the device’s file manager (or click on the download notification) to install it. It’s very similar to download an app on a PC.
There used to be an independent app store dedicated to real-money gambling apps called Betcade, but it shut down in January after living for about 15 months.
Now, a few of you may be saying out loud — yes, out loud, because this is the impact my writing has on you — “Wait, I have daily fantasy sports apps on my phone and I downloaded them from the Google Play store. I thought Google didn’t allow gambling apps in the store.”
You would be right on all accounts. Even should you think DFS a game of skill and not gambling (why not both?) , it still isn’t permitted in the store according to Google’s rules. Ahead of the 2015 NFL season, though, Google approved the DraftKings and FanDuel apps in the Google Play store as part of a limited trial for DFS. Since then, other DFS operators have had their apps made available, also.
