Real-money poker in the USA isn’t legally available to all, but it’s starting to get easier for poker players and gamblers to access real-money gambling and poker apps on Android devices, as more states legalize online gambling.

BetMGM became the first real money poker app to hit the shelves on the Google Play store, making it easy for poker players in New Jersey to hit the virtual felt via mobile devices (Android phones nad tablets) while inside the state.

Until less than a month ago Google had forbidden real money gambling apps in the Google Play store, but a shift in policy means it’s game on to licensed and regulated U.S gambling operators.

Previously Android users wishing to play online poker at an international poker room would have to download the software directly from the operator, trusting that it doesn’t contain any malware.

On March 9th 20201, sportsbetting company DraftKings became the first company to offer legal, real money gambling apps via the Google Play store in the US – offering casino games and sportsbetting to customers via apps in gaming-friendly U.S states.
