Why Some People Think That There Are No Betting Apps on Android

The myth that there are no betting apps on android originated over a decade ago. When betting apps became a thing, those who wanted to bet on android had to download that app from the bookmaker's website.

The app had to be downloaded in the form of an APK, a special file containing the app. You had to adjust the settings on the android device in order to download and install the app.

This was still the case in at least 15 countries around the world until March 1st this year.

Why was this

The app store for Android devices, Google Play didn't allow betting apps in its store. Google's policies just didn't allow real money gambling apps.
