FAQsQ1. Why is it that there are currently no gambling apps available in the Android app store or Google Play Store?

Answer: Good question, the real reason that there are currently no real money gambling apps available in the Google Play Store, is solely because Google don’t support apps that are connected directly with, or promote real money betting.

Q8. What is a mobile based app.

Answer: A mobile based app is essentially a mobile friendly website, which you can save on to your mobile or tablet’s home screen in the form of an app icon for ease of access in the future. When tapping on the app icon, you will find your default mobile browser opening up on the mobile friendly site previously saved. There is no file to save to your mobile device and therefore takes up no storage space.
