Nadine Dorries – 2022 Comments on Loot Boxes

The comments made by Nadine Dorries, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, on 17 July 2022.

We want to stop children going on spending sprees online without parental consent, spurred on by in-game purchases like loot-boxes.

Games companies and platforms need to do more to ensure that controls and age-restrictions are applied so that players are protected from the risk of gambling harms. Children should be free to enjoy gaming safely, whilst giving parents and guardians the peace of mind they need.
