At the request of the Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection (IMCO) of the European Parliament, ConPolicy carried out a study on lootboxes together with the project partner VVA. The aim of this study was to provide the Committee with an overview of lootboxes and other purchase systems in online games, to understand the impact of lootboxes on player behavior – with a special focus on young consumers - and to identify best practices and policy options. In this project ConPolicy conducted a literature analysis and expert interviews.
The final report has been published on the website of the European Parliament. More information about the project can be found here.
