The Dutch Gaming Authority investigated 10 video games with Loot Box monetization and found 4 of them to be gambling. They have given the game’s Developers 8 weeks to remove or alter the loot boxes or else they will leverage fines against them or ban their sale within the country. This is a big step towards legislation against predatory loot boxes as gambling.
