Belgium’s Gambling Commission Rules Against Loot Boxes For Three Major Games

Belgium’s Gaming Commission has reached a verdict in a case related to video games. The Commission investigated Star Wars: Battlefront 2, Overwatch, FIFA 18, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and found that three of them contain loot boxes that violate their gambling regulations. Those titles are CS:GO, Overwatch, and FIFA 18.

Minister of Justice Koen Geens, said in the report:

“Mixing games and gaming, especially at a young age, is dangerous for mental health. We have already taken numerous measures to protect both minors and adults against the influence of, among other things, gambling advertising. That is why we must also ensure that children and adults are not confronted with games of chance when they are looking for fun in a videogame. “

A deadline for their change or removal has not been set.
