Should the loot crates in PUBG be considered gambling?

Should the loot crates in PUBG be considered gambling?

Two new crates will also be added to the game, with test server players being granted "100,000 BP and 6 keys" to test the stability of the system before launch.

As you can see in the video above, PUBG seems to be running smoother than ever on console, although it still suffers from framerate issues, even on the more powerful Xbox One X. You can see the new option in the settings menu to adjust aim acceleration (something that did not previously exist), and we managed to play without having the game crash. We will be testing our expanded in-game reporting tool, as well as the new crate system.

As for the patch notes that came along with the drop rates, the biggest addition is the ability to report another player in Replay. You earn the currency to buy boxes in-game, but there are also boxes that require keys to be opened, and these keys are bought for real money. "There will be a much higher chance of getting one of the two new ones". The BP value, the new items and the keys won't be transferred to live accounts.

The full Playerunknown Battlegrounds patch notes can be found here and they also include the drop rates for specific cosmetic items. This is based on the fact that you can only get six crates through earning Battle Points. The rarest item in the biker crate has a 0.01% chance of dropping, the Desperado crate the one that will cost you an Early Bird key to unlock has 0.16% and 0.32% chance of dropping.

You'll notice that the rarest new items are in the earned Biker loot boxes. So, for example, a sleeveless grey turtleneck top has an 8% drop rate while a checkered cloth mask has a mere 0.01% chance. The best you can do is that the gods of RNG will be on your side.

There's no information yet on when this new loot box system is expected to be added to the main game.
