An app banned me

There is this app called ace card casino which I had installed on my ipad. Yesterday when i opened it to use it says I was banned. I deleted the app and tried reinstalling and it still said the same thing. Then I tried restoring my ipad and reinstalling with another of my itunes account and it still said I was banned. Does anyone know how they are able to do this? Any way I can bypass it to re-download and load succesfully?

Thanks

They are probably using your UUID. Apple is no longer accepting apps that use the devices UUID as of a few weeks ago.

So does that mean the app developers would have to change that in their next update?

Is there any way to change it?

No, the dev needs to change it. Can you email them?

I did and they will not budge. The only reason I was banned was because I askd in the chat area if there was a way I could transfer my chips to someone. I was just wanting to help out a friend on there.

one more thing. I used a VPN to try as well and it still said I am banned. So the app doesn't track my ip?

There are a number of alternatives to identifying the user that do not require the UUID and many apps that rely on it have now switched since Apple deprecated its use.
