Australian Proposal Would Mark Games With Gambling As 18+, Loot Boxes As 15+ - GameSpot

Story Highlights:

According to a recent press release, the changes would introduce a mandatory classification of R18+ of games with simulated gambling elements, and a classification of M (15+) for games with paid loot boxes.

We want to be very clear and very binary in this regard, and the certainty that is provided by a proposal that says if there is simulated gambling in a game, then it is subject to a particular rating," Rowland told ABC News.

As reported by ABC News, Communications Minister Michelle Rowland cites growing concerns about the harms of simulated gambling on children as the impetus for the proposal.
