Apple removes gambling apps from store

Apple removes gambling apps from store


Google Play already went this way years ago, and Apple has finally decided to follow the lead. The move is not at all that surprising, even if the removal of offending applications was quite speedy…

In fact, the move seems to have been so fast that a host of other apps were accidentally removed in the process. It’s safe to say that gambling apps won’t be making a comeback to the store, as the net cast by the company seems to be a blanket ban rather than being aimed at individual producers.

Safety and license issues abound:

The main reason for the move is licensing issues. Most, if not all of the apps, are most likely missing the proper licenses to produce any kind of gambling content for any of the markets Apple is present in. In fact, online casinos have for the most part done away with these apps, simply trusting on HTML5 features to build a decent online casino for all platforms.

As you can surmise, if there are license issues then there certainly are safety issues as well. This action was started by the demands of the Norwegian Gaming Authority, which should further lend some credibility to the claims of license issues.
