Loot Boxes and Domestic Gaming Laws – Regulatory Overreach -The Swedish Consumer Agency’s (Konsumentverket) report suggests there may be problems with the business model for loot boxes in relation to children and vulnerable consumers. Subsequently, the Swedish Ministry of Finance has referred the Swedish Consumer Agency’s report on loot boxes to a legislative committee (Spelmarknadsutredningen). This agency claims that if the winnings in a loot box can be turned into cash, it is a lottery, covered by the Gaming Act.

We are currently working with the video-game industry to limit any regulatory overreach into this burgeoning  entertainment industry sector. (Article Gambling Complaince)
