Luckbox, the Isle of Man-based upcoming Esports betting company, has appointed Frida Ericksson as its Director of Operations. The company is planning to start its new innovative betting platform early next year.
Frida has a wealth of experience in the betting industry, including her latest stint at Pinnacle. She will be handling a wide-range of activities, ranging from customer support and payments to security and responsible gambling measures.
She started her career Betsson Group in Malta, as an anti-money-laundering specialist.
She said: “I was amazed by the enthusiasm I felt when having my initial conversations with Luckbox and I decided that this was a company I want to be a part of. The passion for esports is truly in the DNA of Luckbox.”
“Being part of building what I believe will be a world class esports betting platform sounds like an amazing adventure and opportunity.”
“My role will be pretty broad and will involve several aspects of customer interactions: security, fraud, verifications, payments, customer support and tools for all these areas. My aim is to ensure a smooth payments and verification flow together with a world-class customer support.”
Luckbox has recently become the first cryptocurrency-supported esports project to be awarded a full licence under the Online Gambling Regulation Act (OGRA), issued by the Gaming Supervision Commission.
She is one of the key additions to the company after the appointment of Aleksandar Dimitrov as Head of Product—Sportsbook.
Luckbox’s Chief Operating Officer Quentin Martin said: “I’m delighted to welcome Frida to the company. Having someone with her experience and talent working on such key areas of our infrastructure will be crucial in driving Luckbox forward. Frida has proven track record in the industry, working with renowned operators and her recruitment is a real coup for us.”
Luckbox was founded by former PokerStars colleagues Lars Lien and Mike Stevens and was supported by cryptocurrency contributors via a crowdsale in April 2018.
Preparing for launch in 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 – now holds a full licence under the Online Gambling Regulation Act (OGRA), issued by the Gaming Supervision Commission.
