Reviewers comments

This app features an online version of the well-known game noughts and crosses that would be familiar to most people. The game itself is quite entertaining and challenging and may help children develop their problem-solving skills and the ability to think ahead. The game appears to be able to be played offline, however, when played online, due to online connectivity, access to social media and pop up advertising aimed at an older audience this app is not recommended for children under 8, and parental guidance is recommended for children 9-12 years.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
