Esports betting platform Luckbox is in the running for Esports Operator of the Year at the upcoming SBC Awards 2019 in December.

The Isle of Man licensed bookmaker which launched just under 12 months ago is now finding itself nominated alongside the likes of William Hill, Sky Betting and The Stars Group at the industry award ceremony.

SBC seeks to honor the gambling industry by highlighting its frontrunners:

“The awards recognize the achievements of operators and affiliates, as well as suppliers from across all the major disciplines including payments, marketing, platform providers and data.”

Other notable industry gambling platforms up for awards include GVC, Betway and Pinnacle, all very prestigious contenders.

Luckbox CEO Lars Lien mentioned the following on their official blog:

“We’re a young project we’ve only been open to customers for a few months, and to be in the same company as some of these brands is huge for us.”

This year’s ceremony will grant 41 awards. Here is the breakdown of the award categories:

  • Operator Awards – Sports and Casino
  • Operator & Supplier Awards
  • Affiliate Awards
  • Supplier Awards – Sports & Casino
  • Supplier Awards – Payments

The Operator/Affiliate Awards, the award in which Luckbox’s category falls, will be voted on exclusively by people who have attended 2019’s Betting on Football and Betting on Sports Conferences. According to SBC, those attendees eligible for voting “have an active interest in the betting industry” and that their “opinion and backing is sought after.”

The SBC Awards 2019 will take place on December 3rd in London at the Battersea Evolution.
