Late last year we reported that the Belgium Gaming Commission was launching a probe into the loot box phenonemon to look for any links between videogames and gambling. According the results, yes there is. With FIFA 18, Overwatch and CS:GO's use of loot boxes found to be games of chance and subject to Belgium gambling law.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 was also under investigation but since it has removed its controversial loot box system, was found not guilty. So what does this mean for FIFA, Overwatch, and CS: GO? Well in Belgium at least, the removal of the loot box systems or "risk a prison sentence of up to five years and a fine of up to 800,000 euros". That or somehow force players players to buy them and only be able to play them within the confines of a casino.

"It is often children who come into contact with such systems and we cannot allow that," said Belgium's Minister of Justice Koen Geens. Adding, "We have already taken numerous measures to protect both minors and adults against the influence of, among other things, gambling advertising."

This measure to properly address loot boxes can be found in other countries, like the Netherlands - which is currently conducting its own investigation.
