Gambling and Android

Just encase anyone else was curious as me about gambling on Android marketplace or the alternatives.

Gambling is not permitted on the Android marketplace. Quote from the t&c‘s  “Gambling: We don’t allow content or services that facilitate online gambling, including but not limited to, online casinos, sports betting and lotteries.” –

Alternative app stores:

  • Vodafone and Orange have their own Android app stores, however Vodafone note that can’t be “Gambling-related”, confident Orange will be the same.
  • Amazon app store is US only

So it looks as if getjar is the only viable app store at the moment that allows gambling apps in addition to distributing directly (which you can do with Android). For example client could have the application .apk downloadable from their website.

Hope this saves someone time when looking it up.
