Gambling Application Form

Google Play allows licensed apps that facilitate online gambling to be distributed in Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, Spain, Sweden, and the United States (in addition to the existing permitted countries:  Ireland, France, and the United Kingdom). To apply for distribution on Play of a new online gambling app or a new distribution country/region or new gambling category supported by Google Play for an existing app, please fill out the form below for each market where you want your particular app distributed. If there is any change of ownership or change in your licensing and authorization to distribute online gambling apps, the app must be recertified via this process.

Before submitting your app for certification, make sure it has an IARC content rating (an ESRB equivalent rating of “A/O” (“Adults Only”)), is in appropriate categories on the Play Store such as Games: Casino, Games: Card, Games: Sports, Sports, or Entertainment, and meets the requirements listed on the Developer Policy Center.

You should expect gambling certification and app review to take at least a week or more. Due to the sensitive nature of gambling apps, the following may result in full removal from Google Play:

  • Attempts to bypass the certification process
  • Repeated or serious violations

    • your Gambling Apps will comply with the terms of your Gambling License, as well as all applicable laws, regulations, and relevant codes of practice;

    • your Gambling Apps are not aggregators of gambling products or services owned or operated by third parties and do not otherwise contain functionality (other than ads that are in compliance with Google Play Developer Policies) that allow end users to access gambling products or services owned or operated by third parties;

  3. If you subcontract the development, management, uploading or distribution of your Gambling Apps, in whole or in part, to any third parties, including, but not limited to, any affiliate entities or any of your associated companies (to the extent allowed under applicable law), you are responsible for compliance by such third parties with the Google Play Gambling Terms and Conditions and for any acts or omissions of the third parties pursuant to the Google Play Gambling Terms and Conditions.
