In recent years, there has been a decline in microtransactions, especially loot boxes. In October 2020, EA was fined €10 million by the Dutch district court for violating the country’s Betting and Games Act (via GamesIndustry.biz). The court ruled due to the inclusion of loot boxes in FIFA Ultimate Team. However, earlier this month, EA successfully overturned the fine after a court ruled that the issuer had not violated the country’s gambling rules.
Recently learn by researchers at the Universities of Plymouth and the University of Wolverhampton have found that loot crates have “a gambling-like structure and mentality”. Furthermore, it detects children opening these so-called loot boxes.
