EA Sports’ FIFA series has been one of the most popular gaming franchises. It’s getting a new name, but there’s no disputing the success of FIFA 22, the latest installment in the series. EA Play and Xbox Game Pass allow players to access the game.

The most popular and widely played mode for playing FIFA is Ultimate Team. While betting has always been the norm on football, Ultimate Team is where players buy packs that contain consumables and footballers. This has been compared to gambling. This has led to many complaints, and bans have been imposed in some jurisdictions.
