    New Google Policy Gambling

    Hi guys, not sure if this is a correct place to post. Today I received an email from Google about new policy and I have came across this as cited from google website:

    Gambling
    We donít allow content or services that facilitate online gambling, including but not limited to, online casinos, sports betting, lotteries, or games of skill that offer prizes of cash or other value.

    Here are some examples of common violations:
    Apps that allow a user to wager in order to earn real money.
    Redirecting users to a gambling or betting website where users can earn real money. This includes ad SDKs that redirect users to gambling websites that facilitate real gambling.
    My app have a challenge game that will give a small gift to the user if they participate the game and win it. (The gift could be a T-shirt or a hat)
    This challenge is for increasing user engagement, encourage them to use my app. I'm not sure if it violated this gambling policy.
    Is there anyone experienced this before ? Thank you for your help.

    It only relates to real money. If your currency system only exists in your app, then I believe you're fine.

    Nobody here can answer you for sure...
    But if it was me I wouldn't offer physical items.
    The sentence "that offer prizes of cash or other value" may refer to physical items in my opinion.

    hey, dude, even if so, you don't have to worry about it, because there are a lot of sites that aren't forbidden by Google. For example, I've been betting without any problems at vbet77.net and you know, I've never had problems with the access to this betting site. By the way, it's much more profitable to make bets there because there are regular promotions that increase my successful bets and give a lot of bonuses to my account Really, if you know some tactics while betting, then the success is guaranteed
