The Belgian law banning loot boxes in games does not work properly. This conclusion was reached by researcher Leon Yu . Xiao (Leon Y. Xiao). He stated that the law is mostly observed by large companies, while small studios have not changed anything in their titles, while the authorities do not pay attention to violations.

In addition, according to Yu. Xiao, if desired, Belgian gamers can still get access to the loot boxes. For example, they can download Diablo Immortal, which has not been released in the country, by changing the country in the smartphone settings.
