Google said they will let more RM games be on the Play Store soon. They’ll start this in June in places like India, Brazil, and Mexico and plan to include more countries later. Google has been trying to add these types of games since 2021. Last year, they let some games like fantasy sports be on the Play Store in India, but that was just the start.
Remember when Google took down Paytm’s app in 2020 for adding fantasy sports? Things are changing now. Google is also thinking about changing how much money they take from games when people buy stuff in the games. They haven’t told us all the details yet.
More RM games coming
According to TechCrunch, Google is letting more types of RM games be on the Play Store. This is exciting for game makers and players. They’ve given a deadline of June 30 for game makers to add their games. This isn’t just about fantasy sports anymore.
Google wants to make sure these new games are safe. They’re going to have rules about who can play based on age and where they live. It’s important to have fun but also to keep things safe.

What are RM games?
RMG means Real-Money Gaming. These are games where you can win or lose real money, not just play for fun or get virtual prizes. In RM games, you might put money into a game like an online casino game, a card game, or bet on sports matches. If you win, you get real money back. But remember, you can also lose money.
People like these games because they’re exciting. It’s not just playing a game but also the chance to win cash. But because real money is involved, there are special rules to make sure everyone plays safely and fairly. That’s why Google is careful about which RM games it lets on the Play Store and that is why you should be careful about them too, if you want to play similar games.
What’s next for RM Games?
With more RM games, Google can make more money. They’re thinking about charging the game makers differently when people buy things in the games. This could mean more money for Google. Before, Google was really careful about what RM games they allowed. They only let games be on the Play Store if there were clear rules about them. Now, they’re opening up to more kinds of games, even ones without a lot of rules yet.
Games from the tests in India and Mexico can now stay on the Play Store. Google will keep checking who’s playing these games to make sure they’re old enough and in the right place. They want to be careful and keep making these rules stronger.
So, there’s going to be more fun games to play for money on the Play Store. However, please be careful with your money. Google’s making sure everything’s done right and safely. With Google adding more real-money games to the Play Store, we will see many new and exciting games soon. This is great for people who love gaming and for those who make the games.
Google is making sure that all these new games are safe for everyone. They’re planning to control things so everyone has a good time. So, for all the gamers out there, prepare for some cool new games. Keep an eye on the Play Store, as a lot of fun stuff is coming up!
