Luckbox, an esports betting startup based in Isle of Man, has signed a partnership agreement with Domicilium data centre and network management.

Luckbox is gearing up for a launch in early 2019. It aims to offer betting services on esports, such as Dota 2 and CSGO. It has already obtained license for a cryptocurrency-supported esports project from the Online Gambling Regulation Act, issued by the Gaming Supervision Commission.

Luckbox chief operations officer Quentin Martin said: “Domicilium is a world-leading company, trusted by many other highly respected gambling operators.”

“The offering is compliant with the highest levels of regulatory jurisdiction, as required by the OGRA gambling licence and the service is a massively important part of our infrastructure.”

“As with all of our third-party providers, the Luckbox team conducted an exhaustive process to select the perfect partner and we are delighted to be working with Domicilium.”

“It’s also great to be working with a neighbouring Isle of Man company – further evidence that the island continues to be home of some of the most innovative and forward-thinking digital businesses anywhere in the world.”

Domicilium senior account manager David Artus said: “Domicilium is delighted to have been chosen by the Luckbox team. This is a massively exciting esports project, one which will bring a great deal of kudos to the Isle of Man.”

“Luckbox is an extremely technical organisation, using cutting-edge technology to achieve its global ambitions and in this regard Domicilium and Luckbox have the same technical ethos.

“We have a strong mutual respect and we are confident the partnership will grow from strength to strength.”

2019 marks a major milestone for the global eSports market: the industry will top $1 billion in revenue for the first time. An impressive increase of 26.7% since last year and the revenue should continue growing, hitting $1.8 billion by 2022.

eSports have undoubtedly become especially popular across the globe. According to the Newszoo Global eSports Market Report, the number of viewers amounts to 454 million in 2019, with most of the enthusiastic fans being in China (75 million viewers).

Additionally, the Land of the Red Dragon has recently recognized esports as a profession and citizens can now pursue careers as “esports operator” or “esports player”, among 15 new paths.

Thus, what is still considered by some as a niche industry today should certainly move to the mainstream in a couple of years, with the only question remaining: how far will this exciting industry go?

Explore through this infographic how fast this industry is growing and what its future will seemingly look like.
