Luckbox named Rising Star award at the EGR Operator Awards

Published: Nov 16, 2020 - Last Updated: Jul 26, 2023

The 2020 EGR Operator Awards have named esports betting site, Luckbox as the winner of their Rising Star award. To celebrate their victory Luckbox is offering all existing members a free €5 bet.


Luckbox is a bitcoin based esports betting website. It was launched in 2019 and aims to provide a safe and secure experience by implementing a fully regulated esports wagering system. Luckbox lets esports fans bet with Bitcoin, Ethereum, XRP and Litecoin and they hold one of the world’s most respected gambling licences. They have been awarded a top tier gambling licence by the Isle of Man government.  The licence allows Luckbox to accept fiat, crypto and in-game items as currency when transacting with players.

Luckbox was founded by former PokerStars colleagues Lars Lien and Mike Stevens. It was built by a team combining vast experience in the igaming industry and a passion for esports to offer players a platform to bet on their favourite games, including CSGO, Dota 2 and League of Legends.

The judges listed their reasoning for awarding Luckbox Rising Star:

  • “Luckbox was head and shoulders above everyone else”
  • “Really interesting entrant to a growing/new market and may be the first to really nail this and compete with the larger books”
  • “Great presentation – really on top of the business and it definitely feels like it is going places”

The EGR Operator Awards

The EGR Operator Awards are hosted by eGaming Review (EGR). They are a world leading B2B publisher that provides up to the minute news stories about online gaming and gambling as well as hosting major events around the globe. One such event is the EGR Operator Awards, the so called “Oscars of the egaming sector”.  The awards are a celebration and spotlight for the best firms and organisations that are currently competing in the market today.

The awards range from best customer service to safest betting operator. They do not just focus on the most popular or most profitable, instead, they focus on the important parts of the industry that make online betting and, in the case of Luckbox, esports betting, safe and easy for the consumer.

Luckbox is our third ranked esports betting site. We said that Luck box was

“one of the best places to bet on major and niche esports for veteran punters who have the ability to capitalize on exclusive betting opportunities.”

With this new award, they have the chance to expand their user base and grow beyond their niche. As a rising star in the esports betting scene, the company still has a long time to grow and improve. In the meantime, existing players can enjoy special deals to celebrate the award.
