ban it from everything.
restricting a minor online is a joke. As in, in-words-only.
"yes, i'm totally 18!" *grabs mommy n daddy's credit card*
it's pretty much how it works already for most of these games they're buying loot boxes in. Very few are E rated in the PC & console realm.
children with access to parental funds spend an ish'load of money.
looking back to my childhood, before the day of lootboxes & P2W... My parents definitely spent more than I do now on content. I assume that trend is even worse now, as I was forced to be outside at least 4 hours a day. Parents would now go to jail for forcing their children to spend time outside. Every child I see is glued to a tablet from the age of 2 to 32. Also note, an astronomical # of Millenials still receive substantial subsidies from their folks. To the point where it's actually damaged/damaging parent's retirement prospects because they can't figure out how to cut little timmy & susie off. So even if 29 year old Bob is spending $600 of his own work earned money on gamestuff, his parents still come in and subsidize $1,000 a month, which enables said $600 to be spent on games, along with delivery 3 nights a week. (not to mention them still paying for his/her phone, & insurance) <---- the more common than not American Millennial.

If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
