    I just want to pay for my loot boxes with money boxes. After I partner with other gamers around the world I would be willing to disclose the odds of finding higher values of money in the boxes. Loot box peddlers should be pleased about the surprise payment mechanics which I think are a rather fun and enjoyable experience. Developers and publishers up all nigh to get lucky.

    Odds are 99:1 that the cake is a lie.

    I guess it’s a step in the right direction, although I still find it sad that the gaming industry has stooped to this kind of level to make money in the first place.

    So true. Most of them will just contain a single 1p/1c so developers can continue the fun for longer looking for the 1 in 1000 box with £5/$5 in it. It wouldn't be fair not to share the 'fun' back with the devs.
