But I thought they were on the "featured" tab. Bottom right corner?

I also don't know how much (or how regularly) that tab changes mind you.


You're not misremembering. They're in the bottom right corner of the featured tab. I used the terminology I used because I was parroting what the question used. They're not totally hidden.

This doesn't change the fact that they're 1) the cheapest thing in the store, and 2) the ONLY thing that is random in the store. I don't think you can honestly make the argument that Eververse is run on casino mechanics because of them.

The products that Eververse sells that employ casino mechanics run on casino mechanics.

If Bungie doesn't want to be tarred by accusations that their in-game store deploys casino mechanics, they could decide not to sell any in-game items that deploy casino mechanics. And if it's so few of them and they cost so little, what's the reason not to?

And this way they could later say they decided to do it of their own accord before legislation forces them to either go all in on gambling because a law says their game is gambling if it has, you know, ANY amount of gambling in it, or to eliminate all the gambling instead of just most of the gambling.
