According to the announcement

Under the terms of the new agreement, the Malta-based gaming technology, development, and services organization [OMEGA Systems], will supply the core of the Luckbox platform, overseeing player account management and integrating with the esportsbook engine, payment providers and casino games providers.

Chief Executive Officer for Luckbox, Lars Lein said…

“We are delighted to make this partnership. Our team met with more than a dozen potential platform providers and OMEGA was the stand-out choice.

“As we have said from day one, player security and regulatory compliance – doing things right – are our core values at Luckbox and OMEGA’s strength in these aspects was a strong influence on the decision-making process.

“Their service offers gambling-grade technology which is fully compliant with the highest regulatory requirements – offering players the best and safest experience.”

Major focus on integrity:

Based in the Isle of Man, Luckbox places a significant focus on integrity and aims to comply with leading licenses to aid in bringing trustworthiness and credibility to the esports betting space. The company also reports that is has released its own cryptocurrency, LuckCash, to those who via a Crowdsale supported the project.

Chief Operating Officer for Luckbox, Quentin Martin added…

“OMEGA offers a cutting-edge tech stack, is fully featured, is completely compliant with all the regulatory requirements, particularly the responsible gaming features which is very important to us due to our values. It is absolutely the right fit.

“We shopped around extensively for the right partner and OMEGA stood out head and shoulders above the rest.”

Also detailing the new partnership, Chief Executive Officer for OMEGA Systems, Jim Godsell said…
