Benn Timbury added: “Luckbox sits perfectly at the convergence between esports, gaming and gambling and the huge potential of this sector is well documented. I am joining a stellar team that blends igaming knowhow with esports authenticity and I am looking forward to playing a key role as we strive to scale our user base and revenues throughout the coming months.”
