EA has said it will appeal a €5m fine from Dutch authorities over loot boxes in FIFA.
In mid-October a judge ruled in favour of the Netherlands Gambling Authority (KSA)’s fine, first imposed in 2019, and the judgment was published today.
EA has three weeks from the date of the order (15th October 2020) to change the way FIFA 19, FIFA 20 and FIFA 21 works in the country. So, in effect, it has one week to make a change to its most recent FIFA games. If it refuses to make a change, EA must pay €250,000 per week, up to a maximum penalty of €5m, in fines.
