If they really wanted to bottleneck it, forcing a phone number 2FA would have been more effective.
However, security isn't really the point here if they are only trying to reduce the flow of free games to one per person.
I imagine they were trying to reduce potential customer service calls, as I mentioned before, not a per person limit. It is a digital good, short of bandwidth and with this not being a new game, I imagine they would want as many takers as possible and wouldn't care much about doubling up.
The Google voice thing is annoying as GV has forced verified numbers for years now. In the early days when you could get a GV with just a Gmail account, it absolutely was an issue. Since the change? Eh, not so much. Though if someone is trying to bank freebie accounts to sell, I can't say I care if they have a good experience or not.
