A better term is MACROtransactions considering how pricey they are.  And yes, WG pulls all these nefarious tricks.  Do not buy lootboxes, sucker.

A chance to win something and total loss with exchange of money is gambling, regardless shape, form, or application

It is a great video, thank you for posting, It is impressive how as gamers we can be so easily stimulated / manipulated to bring out our wallets to try and reduce the grinding time, get the latest overpowered fantasy ship or just play lottery with containers.

I agree with the last part of the video, game ratings should reflect when games marketed to kids have micro-transaction based models that could potentially condition our own children like rats to keep them spending for the latest upgrade or fashion item.
