Suzanne Frey, Vice President, Product, Android Security and Privacy at Google said on a blogpost on Friday said that Google doesn't allow online casinos or support any unregulated gambling apps that facilitate sports betting. She added that this policy includes apps that lead consumers to an external website that allows them to participate in paid tournaments to win real money or cash prizes.

Google said it has these policies to protect users from potential harm, and when an app violates these policies, we notify the developer of the violation and remove the app from Google Play until the developer brings the app into compliance.

"And in the case where there are repeated policy violations, we may take more serious action which may include terminating Google Play Developer accounts. Our policies are applied and enforced on all developers consistently," she said.

This chinese company is still alive due to heavy patronage of our big bro. Time to time new rules are framed by the Govt to help this company. One recent instance was about how many UPI transactions a company is allowed - all to help this company. Maximum frauds through KYC matter, people lost lakhs

Amusing thing about startup or new money etc is these ignorant believe they are inventing wheels first time. Due processes existed for centuries, international trade across continent existed for thousands of years along with Lawyers, doctors, businessman in some forms.
