Apple’s New Gambling App Restriction: Social Gambling Products In The App Store Only For 17+

Only those social gaming Apps which have age restrictions allowing only 17+ will be entertained by the Apple’s App Store. In what could be seen as Apple’s latest restrictions on gambling Apps, the company sent notices to developers stating that all apps that feature “Frequent/Intense Simulated Gambling” will be rated 17+ “in all countries and regions,” effective immediately.

The main idea behind introducing age restrictions on social gambling Apps is to make the App store safer for children who are also the most vulnerable.

Earlier this month Apple’s credit card which was announced in collaboration with the Deutsche bank clearly mentioned that it would strictly not be used for gambling. The card would not allow making payments for race track wagers or even lottery tickets and also for the purchase of cryptocurrencies.

In June this year, revising its policy on gambling apps, Apple has announced that now the App Store will host only native gambling Apps. Appl has allowed the gambling operators and app developers until September 3 to comply with the new rule.

Revising and adding more to its guidelines for App Store reviews, Apple has made it clear that HTML5 games distributed within apps “may not provide access to real money gaming, lotteries, or charitable donations, and may not support digital commerce.”

Moreover, Apple’s revised guidelines mandate that “apps in the kids category and apps intended for kids cannot include third-party advertising or analytics software and may not transmit data to third parties.”
