Petition Extend the Gambling Act to cover Loot Boxes

More details

It's appalling that the Government lets this practice continue unregulated despite the evidence that it does cause harm.

The Government should immediately bring into effect regulations under section 6(6) of the Gambling Act 2005 specifying that loot boxes are games of chance.
