ASA to End Loot Box “Consultation Phase” on January 28
Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

The UK Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has reiterated that the “consultation phase” requiring evidence on “advertising of loot boxes and other in-game purchases” will close on January 28.

ASA launched its consultation back in November, following concerns raised by government “select committees” on elements of loot boxes, highlighting in-game purchases.

Later in December, Electronic Arts (EA) confirmed it would be reviewing European terms of play relating to the “Ultimate Team” mode of the FIFA video game series.

Compliance with European gambling laws has been a major difficulty for the developer in recent years, as the presence of loot boxes in EA titles (particularly FIFA) – has led to regulatory penalties and high court disputes of its services.

In its consultation statement, ASA acknowledges that current concerns on in-game purchases fall outside the remit of its UK Code of Advertising (CAP Code) with regards to non-broadcast communication standards.

“Rather than implementing new rules, we think that the issues in question can be suitably addressed through specific formal guidance on existing rules,” the statement read.

“This guidance covers the pricing information at point of purchase, the language and approaches used to advertise in-game purchases (and the games they appear in), and the use of in-game purchased items in ads for games.”

Betswap.gg Ranked as the Best Web3 Sports Betting Site | by dAPP Radar

Betswap.gg, the revolutionary peer-to-peer sports betting exchange, has made the number one spot as the “Top Polygon Gambling App” in crypto betting on dApp Radar’s ranking page relative to other blockchain companies based on their trading volume in the past 24 hours, 7 and 30 days.

Betswap.gg launched the beta version of their sports betting site only two and a half months ago. They have since brought in $2.2 million in trading volume across more than 18,000 bets, taking them to the top spot on the leaderboard in an impressively short period of time. According to dApp Rader, in the last 30 days, Betswap.gg has brought in $1.34 million dollars in trading volume and a huge $885.39k in the past seven days on the Polygon chain.

In addition to this, dApp Radar has put Betswap.gg in position number 2 across chains in the category “Top Gambling dApps” in the past seven days, with their trading volume currently standing at $886.88k.

In a short period of time, Betswap has proven to be a leader in the decentralised sports betting scene, posing a real threat to competitors and other protocols planning to join the space, some of whom have recently come under pressure by their community and labeled as a “centralised betting exchange” after requiring users to give personal information to use the app. Betswap is a fully trustless and permissionless platform with no KYC needed, which is preferred by native crypto users. Betswap.gg also does not take custody of users’ funds at any point, allowing players to place individual bets directly from their wallets and withdraw their winnings seamlessly, safely, and instantly.

Betswap Chief Marketing Officer, Thawfeek Ameen said, “there are many reasons that Betswap is the most suitable crypto sports betting app in the industry, including the fact we are EVM-Compatible and do not rely on one single chain to be functional, unlike other platforms. We also do not require personal details of our users; we are fully trustless and permissionless as well as being fast, reliable, and easy to use”. He continues, “We have also decided to give away up to $25,000 during the FIFA tournament, it is our first World Cup on the platform, and we want to show appreciation to the users who have allowed us to do so well in such a short period of time.”

The rating from dApp Radar comes during the FIFA World Cup 2022, reinforcing that Betswap is the best choice for dedicated Web3 sports betting customers in this tournament. Signing up is simple, with users just having to connect their Metamask Web3 wallet to the site, and with a few clicks, they are ready to start placing bets or acting as a bookmaker. During the games, Betswap has created a live betting feature, that allows users to easily follow what’s happening in each game in real time, making the betting experience even more unique and immersive.
