Should Loot Boxes in Video games be considered under gambling laws?
This one is for our gamers.
I have noticed a number of countries have recently put loot boxes such as from Overwatch as an example fall under gambling. I am thinking of creating a petition on behalf of the party to follow the example of Belgium in terms of considering Loot Boxes purchased with real money to fall under the definition of gambling.
However, I do not want this to actually impact users being able to play games. Rather just that it falls under the definition and maybe R18+ ID required to purchase loot boxes so children do not go into it.
What do you guys think?
