First, you example is not an apples to apples comparison of the situation here. If the slot machine spit out a $5 plastic army man on every $5 pull, that would be an accurate comparison. And in the case where you got a $5 toy for every $5 pull, it would not be gambling. The State & Federal regulators as well as the courts have weighed in that that is not gambling. You have to gain less monetary value than you put in. In the case of Heritage Crates, LoN Prize Cards, and most Loot Boxes, you get as much or more monetary value than what you put in. Some items have more value, but none have less. Yes, Pings Potion Pack of Invisibility is worth the 499.5 DC. All of the rewards are easily worth the prices. The items that people have the most of are the ones that just worth $5 or $8 depending on if you are talking about an LoN Prize card or a Heritage Crate. There are however several items which are worth several times more than the $5-$8 prices. So you get the same or more value. That is not gambling.
