Regulatory agencies in jurisdictions around the world have been hard‐pressed to continually revisit their duties in review of new products that blur the lines between gambling and gaming. Most recently, popular topics at this intersection have included the defining of loot boxes as gambling (or not), as well as an array of different gambling options fuelled by the use of a tradable commodity—skins—as its currency; these have been widely discussed in legal, academic, and media circles. But even as these discussions progress on how industry, regulators, and other stakeholders should be approaching such subjects, the state of play continues to evolve. One such case, described here, presents a prime example of how a variety of different technological developments can be combined to form a new gambling‐related product: VGO skins.
