Are packs a gambling addiction?

Know anybody affected by spending to much on packs? Do you think EA and especially fifa as the governing body have a duty to reduce chances of this happening especially when it influences all ages when bookmakers have to take precautions for adults!?

    I used to gamble too much and opening Fifa packs gave me the same buzz as gambling, sad but true.

    Half the people on Fifa don’t even realise they have an addiction.

    I think if only UK or US bans it, then we'll see some drastic changes. Belgium? A good start but a few powerhouse nations need to get involved.

    Definitely.

    I'm sick and tired of EA ignoring Career Mode to add useless stuff to FUT so where do I report the underage gambling to? I need to get the ball rolling.

    Usually consumer programs that air on TV. I think they've covered FUT before, but it was more when you'd hear kids getting access to their parents bank cards and spending crazy amounts.

    Uh, so cringe. That in itself tells you there is gambling behaviour right there.
