League of Legends is one of the most popular free to play games in the world. One reason for this is because even if you don’t spend a single dime on it, you can still play it as much as you want with no limitations. Developer Riot Games sells character skins (such as Omega Squad Teemo) and IP boosts (IP is used to buy new champions) but these are entirely optional.
Each of these boosts and skins costs a few dollars apiece and this can become quite costly over time which is why the game’s gifting system is so handy as you can send and receive gifts from other players. The restrictions on gifting are now being relaxed so read the new rules after the break.
