Luckbox adds eight titles to esports betting platform

23 July 2019

Esports betting platform Luckbox has today (23 July) announced that it will offer betting on an additional eight games.

Players will now be able to bet on tournaments organised around Overwatch, Hearthstone, StarCraft, StarCraft II, Super Smash Bros, Call of Duty, King of Glory and Heroes of the Storm.

Since its beta launch in June, the operator has offered odds on Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), Dota 2 and League of Legends.

“Our ambition is to offer the most comprehensive betting options for fans, both in terms of depth in each game but also breadth across a wide selection of esports,” Luckbox’s director of esports Sujoy Roy said. “We know there is a huge demand for some of the new games we’ve added, so we hope fans will enjoy watching and betting on some of their favourite events with us.

“We’re continually improving and adding new features to Luckbox and the addition of eight new games is another important step for us as we prepare for full launch.”

Luckbox, founded by former PokerStars employees Lars Lien and Mike Stevens, has been under development since 2016 and is in the final stage of beta testing, which started in May. The company is accepting real-money bets from esports fans in more than 100 countries, and believes that it can make esports betting a mainstream past time.
