TL;DR Hawaii is putting in legislation that require full disclosure on Lootbox chance, and will age restrict these games to a minimum age of 21 years old (legally).

Seeing as a majority of lootbox spenders are rather young people, a large part being children, this age RESTRICTION (mind you, this is different from something like ESRB/PEGI which is advisory age standard, this would be legally enforced, meaning this is straight up loss in terms of revenue (which would be a good reason to stop randomized microtransactions). A bunch of US states are also creating legislation regarding these predatory easy-money makers (Blizzards profits were a large part thanks to the non-risk no-effort microtransactions) http://investor.activision.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=10569
