Helping Victims Seek Damages

Roblox is a virtual playground that is marketed toward children. In this online world, kids can play dozens of mini-games and connect with other users. Unfortunately, a significant component of this online platform is using “Robux,” an online currency unique to the Roblox universe. Children must buy Robux, which has a cash value of $0.0125, to make purchases in the game. These online purchases have led to third-party gambling websites linking their platforms to the Roblox website to allow children and other users to make gambling purchases. While users on Roblox are only supposed to make credit card purchases if they are over 18, this rule is not enforced. If you are a parent of a child who has gambled on Roblox or you are an investor who has lost money from Roblox stock, you may be entitled to compensation. Our team at The Joel Bieber Firm can seek damages on your behalf. Contact our law office today for a free consultation about your case.

What is the Roblox Class Action Allegation?

Over the years, multiple class action lawsuits have been filed against the Roblox corporation. One major lawsuit claimed that children had access to gambling sites and were using their parents’ money to gamble. Gambling is illegal for anyone underage, making Roblox liable for any financial damages suffered on these sites. Another class action lawsuit was sought by investors of the game. This lawsuit claimed that the Roblox platform had insufficient controls and did not limit user spending. Because of this, younger users were playing games with inappropriate content and making excessive purchases in-game. Investors sought damages to make up for the financial losses they suffered as a result of these mistakes.

Who Can Participate in a Roblox Class Action Lawsuit?

Parents of children who have used sites like RBXFlip, Bloxflip, RBLXWild, and BLOXmoon may be able to participate in a lawsuit. These gambling websites use Robux currency to make purchases, charging an exorbitant fee for all transactions. If you have suffered financial losses because of your children gambling online via Roblox, you may be able to seek compensation. Investors in Roblox who have suffered financial losses may also be able to participate in a lawsuit. If you purchased Roblox stock and lost money as a result of Roblox’s poor management, you may be able to seek compensation. Contact our law firm to see if you have a case against Roblox.

What Damages Have Resulted from Gambling in Roblox?

Many individuals have lost money because of Roblox’s lack of user controls. Players must purchase Robux using a credit card to keep playing games and making purchases. While these purchases are supposed to be monitored, Roblox has done a poor job of ensuring that their users are of age before spending money on their game. This lack of control allowed children to interact with games containing inappropriate content. Many mini-games are user-made and lack the age restrictions required to play. Children were also allowed to make large purchases using money from their parents. Because of these unauthorized purchases, Roblox’s revenue grew very quickly over the past few years. This extreme growth impacted investors, but it was not sustainable. If Roblox had instituted the correct controls in their game, they would not have had these high revenue margins. When the controls were finally created, investors lost money as stock prices fell.
