The Insider #117 – EA’s Surprise Mechanics
Loot boxes are “Surprise Mechanics” and aren’t dissimilar to Kinder Surprise, Hatchimals and LOL Surprise (whatever that is).

Born and bred on the Super Nintendo era, Paul relishes any opportunity to sink his teeth into an RPG, action or platformer. Despite being an owner of all major platforms, Paul does have a particular love of the Playstation family of consoles – take only a few minutes to skim through his Twitter and you’ll see him ranting about the next big thing on PS4. We swear he’s sane.
