FIFA gambling soon only from 18?

The Bundestag passed a new law for the protection of minors on the advice of the Federal Ministry of Family Affairs.


The new law could have far-reaching consequences for EA Sport and its goldmine, the FUT mode!



Because the law regulates so-called interaction risks, especially in relation to Lootboxes and in-game chats. In the interaction risks, the age ratings are prescribed among other things of content of video games.



Now some experts are of the opinion that this law could lead to the fact that games, which use Lootboxes, are released only for gamers from 18. This would also affect the FIFA series. As an alternative a warning could be put on the packaging of the game, which informs the user about the use of lootboxes.
