This means traveler’s checks, foreign currency, cryptocurrency, money orders and the like. Also banned are peer to peer and wire transfers, lottery ticket purchases and casino gaming chips (both digital and physical). Race track wagers are strictly taboo.
The card’s guide also explains the use of consumer devices. If you make unauthorized modifications to your Eligible Device, such as by disabling hardware or software controls (for example, through a process sometimes referred to as “jailbreaking”), your Eligible Device may no longer be eligible to access or manage your Account.
Restrictions on HTML5
It is wise to take note of a change in Apple’s policy if you want to tow the line. It happened recently in June and pertains to gaming apps and HTML5 games. A guideline states that only gambling apps native to iOS will be allowed to be hosted in the App Store.
Compliance is mandatory by September 3rd of this year. Google, for its part, is not as strict on the subject. Their updates allow for sports betting companies in New Jersey to use Google Ads for advertising purposes.
