“The UK Gambling Commission has decided loot boxes do not fall under their jurisdiction, allowing Electronic Arts’ FIFA Packs and similar predatory business models to survive in Britain.

The conversation is far from over, and companies like EA are far from done with having to justify their unethical and despicable behavior.”
