Tech giant Apple has notified developers that free-to-play casino apps available at the Apple Store will only be available to players of at least 17 years of age. We'll take a look next!
Free-to-play now treated as simulated online gambling
On August 20th, 2019, Apple's revised policy regarding free-to-play apps went into effect internationally. Under the new policy, free-to-play casinos are to be treated similarly, but not identically, to real-money online casinos even if they aren't.
Worldwide players must be 17 or older while South Koreans must be 19 or older.
