UK players searching the App Store for the Apps from the likes of Paddy Power, Betfred, Ladbrokes, William Hill etc may have had some difficulty finding them last week.

They were all temporarily removed by Apple in what has now been communicated as an 'admin error'. In light of the new UK licensing requirements, Apple sought proof of local licenses from all gambling app providers and as part of this process the gambling Apps were mistakenly pulled after the deadline expired.

They're all back up now apparently.
