However, Google plans to lift this “ban” in some countries.

So far Google has only Brazil, France, Ireland and the UKallowed gambling practices. As of March, it was included in this list. 15 new countries more will be added. However, the fact that Google makes its gambling apps available in more countries does not mean it will loosen its strict restrictions on this issue.

  • Belgium
  • Canada
  • Colombia
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • Germany
  • Japan
  • Mexican
  • New Zeland
  • Norway
  • Romania
