In FIFA Ultimate Team, you can now view the contents of loot boxes before purchasing them

Electronic Arts has added to FIFA Ultimate Team the ability to preview the rewards that can be dropped from the loot box before purchasing it. The publisher had to take such a step after numerous proceedings with gambling commissions in a number of European countries. For example, last year the Dutch government equated loot boxes with gambling, and after a while the court ordered Electronic Arts to pay a fine of ten million euros.

The Preview Packs will arrive in the in-game store today as part of the Festival of FUTball event. How does the preview function work? When you open a set,  you will be shown a screen with all the rewards available in it. 

After that, you can buy a loot box with FUT Points  or FIFA Points. At the time of the festival, Preview Packs are the only option to purchase – later Electronic Arts will return other types of packs as well. Package content is updated every 24 hours.

Perhaps this is how the company is testing the waters before introducing this feature on an ongoing basis.
