LOOT BOXES IN ONLINE GAMES AND THEIR EFFECT ON CONSUMERS, IN PARTICULAR YOUNG CONSUMERS

A research study produced for a committee of the European Parliament was published by the EU Parliament Research Service on 16 July.  It defines loot boxes and describes their behavioural effects, including problematic behaviour.  It examines the regulatory framework at EU and national level within which loot boxes operate, provides an overview of public and industry practices, and derives recommendations.
