2) As part of the on-going debate involving lootboxes and gambling, the Netherlands recently sided with those who consider it as a form of gambling.

Not really. This was going to eventually happen due to gaming companies abusing the loot box system and its predecessor micro-transaction system on mobile platforms for years.

EA just spend up things by trying to go to the next step with Battlefront II. Even if they didn't, Valve was going to cause it to happen due to their own recent gambling scandal with CS:GO.

What also hurt them was more studies have started to establish ties between loot boxes and gambling in regards to addiction similarities.

I suppose its a form of gambling, but not necessarily on the level of actual casino level gambling based on the simple fact that you're guaranteed to get SOMETHING for your money.

That being said, loot boxes are very much guilty of playing the to pride of the individual who lands something rare. Buying cosmetics are cool, but the randomness of the boxes and getting something rare definitely boosts ones ego.
