Los Angeles, CA - June 10, 2019 - Stephen McArthur, founding attorney of The McArthur Law Firm moderated a panel at LLS Monday afternoon on the topic of “Betting, Loot Boxes, and Gambling in Esports” on the eve of E3.

The panel was part of the 2nd Annual Esports Bar Association Conference and he was joined by speakers Jessica Feil, Aalok Sharma, and Sean Kane.

“Many video game companies are gambling and they don't even realize it,” said McArthur, who will also be participating in E3, the world’s premier event for computer and video games and related products. “Most states would consider their video game a game of chance, even if it takes a lot of skill to win. Loot boxes, random items, and even cosmetic skins can raise the specter of gambling, which is a criminal offense.”

In recent weeks, avid gamer Stephen McArthur has been quoted in numerous articles, commenting on the FTC regulations on streamers, contract disputes, such as the “Tfue” FaZe Clan contract, and children’s video gambling.
