Aug 27, 2013
iOS gambling apps have to comply with new App Store guidelines
After a series of security breaches and potential threats, Apple has moved to tighten up its guidelines for gambling apps on its App Store. iPhone gambling enthusiasts can relax at this news, safe in the knowledge that their apps are trustworthy, legal and compliant with any regulations.
The new guidelines limit real money gaming applications such as mobile casinos, sportsbooks, poker and slots, and should have no affect on gamers from most casinos.
The first thing these new guidelines do is ensure that games have the licenses and permissions needed for each country. This means that gamers from the US will not be able to access games not licensed for their country, avoiding the chance of any problems happening later.
The app must also be free and should block under age users. As part of this, any data collected has to comply with privacy laws, meaning that your data is safe. As mobile gambling news goes, this doesn’t touch most of the community, but it is still a step in the right direction.
More and more gambling apps are coming the iPhone and iPad every day, as casinos look to tap into a large market and take advantage of innovative app development. Some of the most recent game announcements are the All Slots Mobile Casino and Ladbrokes’ new Blackjack and Roulette apps.
