Best option, Force the publishers to use a Licencing system, the same that is in place for all other forms of legal gambling. This will work twice to get rid of this blight on gaming. They will have to apply for separate licences for each game in each country and cost a small fortune. Second to this they will receive massive fines for each time they have breached their conditions of their licence for example, allowing children access to those services. Guaranteed loot boxes will die out by themselves.

Agreed. I don't mind if people want to pay real money for in game items, as long as it doesn't affect game play. What I don't like is loot boxes in any form, especially when linked to real money. It leads to poor game design, and a focus on shallow multiplayer crap.
But building gambling-like content into games can absolutely have a bad affect on certain people
