Who doesn't love loot boxes? Spending money on totally random items with no earthly idea what you're getting — that's essentially how real life works, right? You go the car dealership, you hand them some cash, and they turn a giant spinner full of keys before plucking out a set and handing them over. Actually, no — that's not how it works at all. That sounds like the way lottery numbers are determined, and the lottery is gambling. According to a new study, loot boxes might be gambling, too.
