A new addition to the AUP has just been implemented which outlaws the promotion of gambling sites and apps. Regardless of whether or not they were created with AppGameKit
3.7 Gambling (we do allow theoretical discussion of implementations of game mechanics such as loot boxes but advertising apps containing gambling is not permitted)

Is there a reason you aren't hosting the APK on Google Play, Amazon, or one of the other platforms?
If not, doing that would let you publish an update that everyone can download.

If you need help getting set up on one of those platforms, post what the hurdle/obstacle is and maybe we can help get you set up.

But to your question, it needs to be done manually. If you are using the same package name, they don't need to uninstall the old version. just install the new version over it.


And good luck with the Fantasy Cricket Business!

oh... I think I just realized why it may not be on Google.

Sure, I'll side load an app and then give it update rights, because I hate security!

I have chosen to unlock this thread because there is no direct evidence that there is any scam involved.
Several people have expressed their concerns and as such, I have now placed a warning at the top of the thread.
I don't expect to see ANY further mention of scams and any comments about scamming here will be dealt with accordingly.
If anyone has any direct evidence of a scam then please contact a moderator by Private Message do not post here.

Whilst the site in question does use real money. there is nothing in the AUP that prohibits the promotion of real money sites. There is, however, mention of flaming, trolling and personal abuse and how they will be dealt with. So with that in mind, I repeat that there is to be no mention of a scam unless you have direct evidence of such.
