Android casino appsIf you love playing at mobile casinos and you own an Android device, then we have great news for you! 

After a recent change to the mobile giant's policies, real money gambling apps are now available to be downloaded from the Google Play Store.

Banned since 2013, Google recently made the necessary changes to the Play Store policies. A Google spokesperson commented on the changes saying: "We're experimenting with rolling out real money gambling apps in select markets over the next few weeks that ensures user safety as part of our continued effort to offer new experiences on Google Play."

Available casinos

In an attempt to get in on the action ahead of the game, both Coral Casino and 888 Casino have already launched mobile apps for Android.

Punters can now enjoy all of the very best mobile casino games, fun promotions, and great new additions via an app created specifically for Android users. The apps by these top online casinos also hold the keys to great live casino and sports betting experiences on the go.

While all of this is already possible at mobile casino sites, being able to access your favourite casino via an app can just prove to be that much more convenient.

Some believe that the main push behind the recent changes by Android is due to the availability of casino apps for iOS users. Whether this change has occurred because of company rivalry or Android simply wanted to expand the playing experience of their customers, the addition of these apps is great news.

Lifting the ban

In 2013, Android placed the ban on casino apps appearing in the Play Store because of the inability to verify the ages of those using the apps in question.

Now that the ban has been lifted, there are certain parameters that will need to be covered. To start, all casino apps will be rated as AO (Adult Only) in the Play Store, making them easier to filter out. Information about responsible gambling will also have to be clearly displayed in an attempt to curb any addiction problems.

The casino apps will also only be available to players from qualifying jurisdictions via regulated and licensed apps.

Another minor change to the policy has also lifted the ban on gambling ads that could run within apps, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for more of those in the future.
