Loot Box Legislation coming to Hawaii thanks to Chris Lee

Patreon ► https://patreon.com/SidAlpha Paypal ► https://www.paypal.me/SidAlpha Twitter ► https://twitter.com/SidAlpha Earlier today it was reported that 4 bills have been submitted by Chris Lee of Hawaii that serve as legislation for Loot Box microtransactions within video games like Star Wars Battlefront 2 EA and Overwatch. These bills focus on the gambling aspects of the pseudo slot machine systems in order to force developers and publishers to disclose exact percentages, clearly label all games that contain loot boxes, and place a 21 year age restriction on their sale in Hawaii.
