If you are a fan of esports like Overwatch, Super Smash Bros, and StarCraft II, you should know you can now bet on these titles at the Luckbox esports betting site. These games alongside others such as Hearthstone, StarCraft, Call of Duty, Heroes of the Storm and King of Glory are the eight new games that will feature on the Luckbox esports betting platform.
What is Luckbox?
The newly launched esports betting site previously only included odds for big-hitters such as League of Legends, CS: GO and Dota 2. But with nearly a dozen featured esports to bet on, it will help to make Luckbox one of the most gamer-friendly esports bookmakers.
LoL, CS:GO and Dota 2 are by far the world’s most popular esports. But by including collectible card games like Hearthstone and fun fighting games such as Super Smash Bros, Luckbox will take steps to cater to a more niche audience.
Luckbox has already been hard at work in making its site as gamer-friendly as possible. Customers can now use cryptocurrencies and even in-game items to fund their esports bets. Plus Luckbox has even established its own Discord channel developed a community of over 10,000 esports betting fans.
In the past decade, there have been many regular sports bookmakers like 888sport and Mr Green that attempted to join in the esports craze. But Luckbox has been quick to employ the likes of Paul ‘Redeye’ Chaloner to help meet the needs of serious gaming fans.
Alongside this legendary esports host, online gaming gambling veterans helped establish Luckbox. The company was established in 2016 by two previous employees of PokerStars who realized that there was a rapidly growing market for esports betting.
Luckbox is moving up
Just as the esports industry is thought to be worth around $1 billion as of 2019, the growth of the competitive betting industry has caught many in the traditional gambling world unawares. But Luckbox aims to be another dedicated esports betting site alongside the likes of ArcaneBet and BetSpawn who promise to offer a specialist wagering service.
The beta version of the Luckbox betting site has been in operation since June, and it has already been positively received in over 100 countries worldwide. The site is regulated by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission, and its real money betting service promises to give customers a safe and easy way to make real money bets on esports tournaments.
Luckbox has already created their own betting apps for iOS and Android devices, plus they have even teamed up with HooYu to ensure that a customer’s ID verification is as water-tight as possible.
So whilst Luckbox might be a relatively new brand on the esports betting scene, it looks like they are taking all the right steps to ensure that they become a big hit for anybody with an interest in betting on esports.
