Paid PUBG loot boxes have been disabled for players in the Netherlands and Belgium this week. Reselling valuable loot box content is considered illegal under its gambling laws.
According to PUBG. Corp, a "recent legal interpretation" regarding loot boxes means the studio has disabled loot box key purchase and usage in the Netherlands and Belgium.
The Dutch Games of Chance authority, or Kansspelautoriteit, has investigated several popular games containing loot boxes in 2018 and considered many of these to be illegal. The titles investigated include PUBG, CSGO, FIFA 18, Dota 2, and Rocket League.
