Esports betting platform Luckbox has today announced the addition of eight new games.

Esports fans can now enjoy betting on 11 different games via the Luckbox esportsbook.

Overwatch, Hearthstone, StarCraft, StarCraft II, Smash, Call of Duty, King of Glory and Heroes of the Storm have been added to the existing trio of CSGO, Dota 2 and League of Legends.

Luckbox’s Director of Esports Sujoy Roy said: “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.

“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.”

To celebrate the addition of the new games, Luckbox launched its new bonus for players, who can get $20 free when they deposit $20.

Luckbox is in the final stage of beta and already accepting real-money bets from esports fans in more than 100 countries.

The company is aiming to combine an esports-dedicated product with the integrity and player safety measures that major traditional bookies offer.

The company holds a top-tier gambling licence in the Isle Of Man, which guarantees player funds are segregated from business funds, offering players the highest levels of protection.

Luckbox is also a member of the Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC), which works to maintain standards in esports.

Reading Time: < 1 minute

 

Bethereum will launch their 2nd Free-To-Play (F2P) eSports Cup on December 5th, this time with limited edition collectible football cards by Sorare as prizes.

Bethereum held few F2P competitions in the past, with thousands of active players. To celebrate their recent partnership with Sorare, they will hold an eSports Cup as a special event within the Bethereum Gaming Contest for 10 days, starting December 5th. During this special event players will, for the first time, compete not only for Bether tokens, but will have a chance to win Sorare limited edition ERC-721 football cards.

Sorare is a fantasy football game where you collect and build your dream team of players to compete for weekly rewards. These exclusive collectibles will be up for grabs for those who rank at the top of the Bethereum eSports Cup leaderboard. Join the F2P competition on gaming.bethereum.com

Giacomo Tognoni, CEO at Bethereum: “We see huge potential in eSports betting, and great affinity among eSports bettors and our focus on gamification, fun, and social.

“Our peer-to-peer model is also perfectly suitable for eSports, as it guarantees operational profitability on each and every bet (unlike standard betting models, as bookmakers find it hard to set reliable eSports odds).

“We’re excited to launch the eSports Cup in partnership with Sorare, a provider of Blockchain digital collectible sports cards – definitely a great use case for Blockchain.”

Nicolas Julia, CEO at Sorare: “We are very proud to kickstart this collaboration with Bethereum. We share the same mission of transparent and fair gaming. Today’s announcement marks a new step in our vision to create a global and open gaming ecosystem.”
