FIFA Ultimate Team is a form of betting for the Austrian court and bids but the game offers refunds

The Austrian court dominated FIFA Team Ultimate on PC, Steam Deck, PS4, PS5, Xbox and Cie. For that, EA is betting on the game and ordering Sony – as the manufacturer of the PlayStation – to pay the sums.

This directly conflicts with what happened a year ago, when the then Dutch Supreme Court invalidated the sanction against EA, considering that FIFA Ultimate Team is not a gambling game.

Now, half a year after the launch of FIFA 23, there is once again a discussion about the gambling game developed by EA Sports.

All this according to what they confirm from the VGC, when Ludi Wirtschaft ruled a small court in the field of Hermagor in favor of several Austrian FIFA players who asked Sony in 2020.

The lawsuit alleges that the actors, including a minor, spent more than 400 coins in the soccer simulator that is now known as FIFA.

The case was made by the lawyer Ulric Salburg stating that the ability to use money in the random package system in FIFA is against the laws of the country gambling; and that he would hold Sony responsible.

The report claims to have ordered Sony to return the €338.26, but the company has not responded. Now, why does FIFA’s Ultimate Team gambling system violate Austrian Law?

As indicated by this same court, therefore, the contents of the booty in FIFA have the possibility of being worth more or less money than the value of the livestock per se and “theoretically” offering a “benefit” to them quite lucky. it is also worth accepting.

FIFA’s Final Team mode has had a lot of scrutiny across Europe in recent years due to its popularity and potential for electronic skills to bring in big bucks.

Players assemble their “Greatest Team” by acquiring objects that represent players, whether contemporary or legendary – by purchasing packs that can fluctuate in price between €1.99 and €30.

The problem is that the content of these packs, although they are safe (PE always 30 gold items in 10 pack), the quality of the players is random and that encourages users to pack after pack until they get the desired player.

The ability to purchase these FIFA Ultimate Team packs has been removed from some territories such as Benelux, but in most territories everything remains intact.

EA itself said this past February that FIFA 23 is on its way to becoming the most successful game in the history of the saga and in October 2022 it surpassed all records for EA Sports: 10.3 million players in its first week.

Now the FIFA Team is finalizing the betting form for the Austrian court and with it arranging to refund the seat at the time, how should this message be fixed?
