Another day, another lawsuit. As noted by AppleInsider, a new class action lawsuit blames Apple for hosting and profiting from casino-style apps through the App Store,.
Lodged with the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Columbia, it’s a class action “arising from Apple’s profiting from illegal gambling games
developed by Zynga and offered, sold, and distributed by Apple through its App
Store for consumers to download and play.”
The lawsuit says that the tech giant offers, sells, and distributes casino-style slot
machines, casino-style table games, and other common gambling games that “constitutes illegal gambling pursuant the law of various states” (the suit named 25).
Apparently, the plaintiff has played some of those games. The lawsuit says that the plaintiff and members of the class action suit are entitled to recover from Apple the amounts they lost while gambling on the Zynga Casino apps through the App Store.
