Esports betting company Luckbox has appointed Metodi Zaburtov as Head of Risk Management and Operations – Sportsbook.

Metodi brings a wealth of experience to the position, with his previous roles including Head of Live Betting at PartyGaming and Head of Sportsbook & Esports Optimization at Ultraplay.

At Luckbox, Metodi will be in charge of the esportsbook, responsible for areas such as risk management, trading, odds compilation and data feeds.

Metodi said: “I will be overseeing the day-to-day trading operations in an effort to keep up to the high-quality standards we set. This will be a role with many intersections to other departments such as fraud, integrity, CRM, product and support.”

Luckbox, which is preparing for launch in early 2019, has been awarded a full gambling licence in the Isle of Man – among the world’s strictest jurisdictions. The company is creating a unique, esports-dedicated platform, which is being built by an in-house development team and will allow fans to bet on CSGO, Dota 2, League of Legends and other esports.

Metodi is based in Bulgaria, where Luckbox’s developers are delivering a “unique and immersive” platform designed to cater specifically for esports fans.

Metodi has joined Luckbox from esports.com and said: “I describe myself as a casual gamer. I was an extreme fan of Unreal Tournament back in the day.

“Of course, I’ve played many different genres like FIFA, Sid Meier’s Civilization, Championship Manager, World of Warcraft, Starcraft, CS 1.6, CSGO and Need for Speed but mostly occasionally.

“I consider myself an esports fan and I watch a lot of streamed content, enjoying what the best esports athletes can produce out there especially in CSGO and Dota 2.”

Luckbox Chief Operating Officer Quentin Martin said: “We’re continually striving to mix gambling industry nous with a passion and understanding of esports and Metodi personifies that perfectly.

“We’ve managed to build an amazingly talented team and Metodi’s arrival further strengthens us in what is a highly important role.”

Metodi said: “I am excited to join this team of top professionals and be part of something great. I want to help in building an industry-leading esportsbook that redefines the norms by being user-friendly, entertaining, heavily segmented and by providing a unique betting service.

“I am also passionate about utilising data and driving innovation. We all have big ambitions and goals at Luckbox and we are eager to attract and delivering them to the gaming and betting audience.”
