Online gaming can be a lot of fun. But it can also be very addictive. When you are absorbed in a game, you can easily lose track of how much money you are spending.
Even worse, many online games are designed and engineered to promote addiction on purpose. No wonder so many people end up spending more money on online games than they could afford.
How Much Have I Spent on League?
League of Legends players spent around $120 on average. You can easily find out how much you have spent so far by signing into your account and clicking on the “Show Me The Money” button.
The best way to take control of your online game spending is to keep a close tab on it. Internet laws such as the GDPR and the CCPA require internet companies to disclose to their users the information they are collecting on them.
That means online games need to offer you a way to keep track of your spending on the games.
Riot Games, the game development company behind League of Legends, provide a very simple way for their users to check how much money they have spent on that game.
