Sweden Could Classify Loot Boxes As Gambling By 2019

During a segment on Swedish Radio P3 News, Swedish minister for public administration Ardalan Shekarabi talked a little bit about loot boxes and how the Swedish government are looking at them as a form of gambling. Shekarabi stated..

 

“We are working to regain control of the gambling market as soon as possible, and to make sure that Swedish consumer protection laws apply to all actors which conduct gambling activities.”

“I am prepared to ask our authorities to take a closer look into the phenomena of loot boxes to examine whether there is a need for change in legislation, with the purpose of strengthening the protection of customers. I don’t want to rule out the possibility. First of all. I want to ask our authorities and experts to examine this. It is obvious that there are many people suffering from gambling addiction, who also get stuck in this type of gambling and lose money because of it.”

Sweden are looking to have loot boxes classified as gambling by January 2019.
