Soon after removing the app, Google said that it won’t allow any gambling app on its platform and has also posted a blog about Play gambling policies. 

Earlier in the day, Google posted a blog titled “Understanding our Play gambling policies in India” where they have pointed out issues related to such apps that endorse or promote gambling in India.

“Google Play is designed to provide a safe and secure experience for our consumers while also giving developers the platform and tools they need to build sustainable businesses. Our global policies have always been designed with that goal in mind, considering the good of all our stakeholders,” Google said in its blog.

“We don’t allow online casinos or support any unregulated gambling apps that facilitate sports betting. This includes if an app leads consumers to an external website that allows them to participate in paid tournaments to win real money or cash prizes, it is a violation of our policies," Google’s Suzanne Frey, Vice President, Product, Android Security and Privacy wrote.

Further talking about these policies, Frey said, “We have these policies to protect users from potential harm. 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.”
