In a recent update, Hawaii has implanted a new law that limits sales on lootboxes in video games.
Hawaii sees lootboxes as a way for children to easily get in gambling at a young age and hopes that this new law will encourage other states to follow suit.
The bill states that it is
unlawful for any retailer to sell to any person under twenty-one years of age a video game that contains a system of further purchasing:
(1) A randomized reward or rewards
(2) A virtual item which can be redeemed to directly or indirectly receive a randomized reward or rewards.
