Esports betting platform Luckbox partners with HooYu
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

Esports betting platform Luckbox has announced a partnership with leading ID verification specialist HooYu. Luckbox is an innovative and immersive platform that allows players to bet on esports and as a regulated gambling operator, they comply with strict age verification and anti-money laundering requirements.

HooYu has been selected to provide Luckbox with the HooYu Identify solution, to verify customer age and identity.

Luckbox has been awarded a full gambling licence in the Isle of Man – among the world’s strictest jurisdictions – and aims to serve esports fans across the world. Luckbox is preparing for launch in April and the deal with HooYu is an important milestone for the innovative esports betting start-up.

Luckbox Chief Operating Officer Quentin Martin said, “From day one, we’ve made integrity, player security and doing things right among of our top priorities at Luckbox. Nowhere are these values more important than the customer onboarding process which is why we chose HooYu to help us ensure age and identity verification compliance whilst delivering smooth global customer onboarding.

The esports betting industry has long been plagued by shady operators acting with little or no regard for the rules or the safety of their players. This problem has been particularly acute regarding underage gambling – too many esports betting sites have allowed underage players to gamble and this is clearly unacceptable and something that needs to stop.

Thankfully, things are changing and Luckbox is proud to be among the operators leading the shift that will help legitimate operators, players and the wider esports industry.”

HooYu Marketing Director, David Pope said, “The emergence of specialist esports operators like Luckbox is evidence of continuing innovation in the online gambling industry. Luckbox is the latest operator to sign-up to our age and identity verification solutions, this is another sign that the industry is moving in the right direction and that player protection and social responsibility is front and centre.”

Luckbox 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.

 

About Luckbox:
Luckbox was founded by former PokerStars colleagues Lars Lien and Mike Stevens. Preparing for launch in April 2019, it is being built by a team combining vast experience in the igaming industry and a passion for esports to offer players unique and highly social platform to engage with their favourite games, including CSGO, Dota 2 and League of Legends. Real Time Games Holding Limited – the company behind the Luckbox brand – holds a full licence under the Online Gambling Regulation Act (OGRA), issued by the Gaming Supervision Commission.
About HooYu:
At HooYu, we are specialists in building database check and identity confirmation products and our platforms are used by millions of users each month. The team behind HooYu has built several successful database check businesses such as 192.com and 192business.com.

Today, many organisations use our two platforms, HooYu Identify and HooYu Investigate to verify customer identity or to investigate people, places and businesses.

HooYu Identify is a global identity confirmation service that blends and combines multiple identity technologies including digital footprint analysis, identity document authentication, facial biometrics, database checks and PEPS and Sanctions watchlist checks to confirm identity.
HooYu cross-references and analyses data from a person’s digital footprint to confirm their real-world identity. HooYu also extracts and verifies data from ID documents at the same time as authenticating the ID document and conducting a biometric facial check comparing a selfie of the customer with the facial image on their ID document.
HooYu Investigate is a ground-breaking investigation platform that instead of displaying results in traditional list format, shows results in a graph database. With our unique data visualisation technology, we have evolved traditional database search into a navigable graph which connects 180 million people, 14 million businesses, 32 million UK addresses, 57 million phone numbers and 18 million email addresses.

We’re thrilled to announce the return of three long-term partners for the LEC 2022 season.

As we prepare for the start of LEC Spring 2022, we’ve been working with our partners to ensure that we offer the best possible viewing experience for our fans around the world. Today, we’re proud to announce that three of our long-term partners will be returning to support the 2022 season.

The first of these partnerships is our Official Energy Drink Supplier, Red Bull. This will be our fourth consecutive year working with Red Bull and we can’t wait to build on our partnership throughout the year.

Red Bull will excite the LEC followership by creating content activations that will appear throughout LEC events and also promoting grassroots LoL esports over the next 12 months. Further, Red Bull Solo Q, the official 1v1 League of Legends tournament, in which fans can compete against each other, is returning for 2022.

Next, we are ecstatic to confirm that Warner Music will once again be joining us as an Official Music Partner for 2022. Over the four years we’ve been working with Warner, they’ve introduced some truly amazing artists to LEC fans and we can’t wait to see what they’ve got in store for the year ahead.

Warner Music was instrumental in powering the 2022 LEC promotional video with Chrissy Constanza, and will be bringing a similar calibre of talent to LEC content going forward.

Finally, we’re excited to confirm that Secretlab will be returning for a multi-year partnership as the Official Gaming Chair Partner for the LEC and EU Masters! From chairs inspired by K/DA’s music releases and the Ruination event to the premiere of Arcane on Netflix, Secretlab has been a constant in the League of Legends universe, celebrating major League milestones since 2019. As the Official Gaming Chair at regional leagues and global tournaments including the World Championship, the Mid-Season Invitational, and All-Star, esports teams have gotten familiar with Secretlab chairs and we’re delighted to have them return to support the LEC for the third year running with the new Secretlab TITAN Evo 2022.

Additionally, the exclusive Secretlab x League of Legends Tilted emote that was first dropped during Worlds 2021 will be making its return during LEC 2022 – stay tuned to Secretlab’s social media pages to find out how you can get yours.

“LEC has constantly kept us on the edge of our seats with mind blowing plays each year. With the induction of increasingly younger talents across the league, following an action-packed year which made LEC 2021 the most watched season of all time, we’re expecting even more epic faceoffs in the upcoming season and the teams can count on being supported by the world’s best gaming chairs in their battle for a spot at Worlds,” says Beatrice Wee, Senior Manager, Global Partnerships, Secretlab. “There’s no compromise when it comes to equipping Europe’s best.”

With these amazing partners alongside us, we can’t wait for what will no doubt be the most exciting year of LEC action yet. Will MAD Lions continue their reign at the top, or will old favourites G2 Esports or Fnatic rise back to the top spot with their refreshed rosters?

That’s why I support this partnership which we launch together with one of the most tech-savvy cryptocurrency exchanges on the market. Welcome to the Gambit family, EXMO!” Konstantin Pikiner, Sports Director of Gambit Esports, said.

For traders, just like for esport athletes, such personal qualities as strategic thinking, courage and speed of reaction to changes are of great importance. Together with Gambit, we want to create many interesting opportunities for our audiences,” Sergey Zhdanov, CEO of EXMO, said.
