Apple hit with another lawsuit claiming it benefits from illegal gambling apps Mike Peterson, Apple Insider · April 7, 2021 at 3:02 pm Apple has been hit with another class action lawsuit claiming that it profits from illegal gambling apps on the App Store. The complaint, lodged in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California on Tuesday, specifically names casino apps developed by DoubleU Games Co. It alleges that the apps constitute illegal gambling pursuant to various state laws. More specifically, the lawsuit claims that Apple operates as an “unlicensed casino” by permitting and facilitating illegal gambling. It takes issue with free-to-play casino games, which use in-game currency in lieu of actual money. However, the lawsuit notes that users can purchase more coins or chips using actual currency.
