The Brazilian authorities have launched an inquiry aimed at banning loot boxes in the country, on the recommendation of the National Association of Child and Adolescent Defense Centers (ANCED).

The association argued that the randomized monetization mechanics are a form of gambling, which is illegal in Brazil, The Esports Observer reported.

The inquiry targets companies that sell loot boxes, including Activision, EA, Konami, Nintendo, Riot Games, Ubisoft, Tencent, and Valve.

If the ban is approved, Brazil could fine violators up to $706,000 per day.
