LeoVegas online casino has once again made history after the company launched its app on the Google Play Store. They were the first online casino brand to launch its app on the official store for android devices. The online gaming site announced that their app will be available for Google Play Store but only for countries like Sweden, Denmark, and Spain.
By listing its mobile apps in the Google Play Store, LeoVegas will be able to reach a vast number of players in the three countries. Android mobile devices hold a serious stake in the said markets.
In Spain, android devices hold around 90% share of the mobile market. This is also the case in Sweden, where the device accounts for around 45% and 38% in Denmark.
“Once again, we position ourselves as leaders in our industry and make it easier for our customers to obtain a superior mobile product, which will enhance the customer experience,” Mattias Wedar, the Director of Product and Technology at Leo Vegas said in a press release
Lifting of Ban Related to Gambling Apps
The listing of the LeoVegas app on the Google Play Store became possible only after Google announced that it would lift the ban related to gambling apps. Google started to lift the ban on gambling apps on March 1, 2021. The tech giant company is also expanding the list of countries in which gaming operators could reach players through the Google Play Store.
Google listed down 19 countries in their support site where they will allow gambling apps in their store. Aside from Sweden, Denmark, and Spain, online casino site operators can also list their apps in Google Play Store for countries like Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Norway, Romania, United Kingdom, and the United States.
The lifting of the ban did not mean that we will see an influx of online gambling apps immediately. Google stressed that they will only allow those operators that have a valid license or authorized by the gambling regulator.
Wedar also revealed the tight deadline they encountered in making applications. Wedar said:
“The deadline was tight, as Google only officially announced this possibility at the end of January, but with a great effort from all the teams involved, we managed to make it happen not only on time, but before the competitors”.
Another company milestone
Listing their app on the official store for Android-based mobile devices ahead of their competitor is surely a big milestone for LeoVegas. They are now the first company to launch gambling apps on Google Play Store.
But it is only one of the company’s great milestones. It can be remembered that the company also became the first igaming company to offer open banking payments through its online and mobile platforms.
In 2019, the company also launched the Multiplay feature that allows the players to play up to three games at the same time. This can be done by setting the game to autoplay.
