BBC PODCAST: THE LOOT BOX SCANDAL

In the first episode of a 3-part BBC Radio 4 investigation the programme explores whether children are being enticed into gambling through video game “loot boxes”, and how an apparently harmless bit of fun has links that stretch all the way across the world and involve a small Caribbean island (Curacao) which has seen gambling-related murder and high-level corruption.  It says that maybe the question is not whether loot boxes involve gambling, but rather if they cause harm.
