Wednesday August 28,2013 : GOOGLE PLAY MOVES AGAINST ONLINE GAMBLING APPS
 
Joins Apple in banning gambling apps
 
Google Play has joined Apple in lowering the boom on gambling apps, advising developers that they have 30 days to revise the content of their apps or face ejection from Google Play.
 
The platform defines undesirable apps as those that involve gambling for “prizes of cash or other value,” and the company's advisory explains that Google will no longer accept “content or services that facilitate online gambling, including but not limited to, online casinos, sports betting and lotteries, or games of skill” if these proffer financial reward via game play.
