Spain may ban loot boxes

Gambling News and Lucky Stories

The Spanish authorities are studying the possibility of introducing a ban on loot boxes in the country, and refer to the experience of Belgium, where such packages with internal rewards that give an advantage in the game are equated with gambling. Spanish officials want to find out if loot boxes need to be regulated separately, if they should be regulated as gambling, if they should be put to rest. Recall that players make purchases of loot boxes for real money, only after the purchase can you find out their contents. Previously, the Belgian authorities called gambling computer games Star Wars Battlefront II and Overwatch because of the loot box systems prescribed in them. “Video games with the Loot box function carry hidden gambling propaganda, as they require money from the user, and not skill,” representatives of the Belgian gambling regulator say.
