    In-game spending should be regulated by gambling laws and so-called loot boxes banned entirely for children, MPs say.

    The industry's UK trade body responded it would "review these recommendations with utmost seriousness".

    But the committee of MPs had accused some of those who had given evidence of a "lack of honesty and transparency".

    Free video games often encourage players to buy virtual loot boxes, which contain an unspecified amount of items to improve further game-play.

    Some games have associated online marketplaces where players can trade or sell these items.
