What a strange country. They wanna ban lootboxes but the far-right government wants to legalize gambling and cassinos at the same time. Maybe they only care for moneywashing.

Casinos are adults only regulated by the employees at the casino keeping kids of the gaming floor. Employees/casnios can and will be fined for ignoring underage play.

EA and the others do not get fined for or reverse charges made by children. They infact control and/or pay off the regulators to say pegi 3 or E for everyone so the can prey on children that don't know they are being manipulated or why they are being manipulated.

The news say the project wants to ban lootboxes for anyony. Kids and adults.

Don't try to justify one lie with another. If lootboxes were used to launder money like casinos, bingos and churches, far-right governments would even release them to the dead. Trying to ban lootboxes is just a response to the false moralism that does not like the EA of the incels and the alt-right gamer that supports Bolsonaro. Nobody cares about children, if that were the case it would be restricted to only them.
