About Kickback

Kickback is building the future of gambling. 

We started out in 2014 building a way for the average player of Minecraft or Counter Strike to play it against other, equally skilled players for money.

We’ve grown since then into building brands on the internet that let players bet in video games, esports, traditional casino games (with a twist) and more.

Gambling has been around for forever. We're on a mission to create the most entertaining way to gamble, bet and play online. We believe that lies in building transparent, engaging game modes that everyone in the community can play, while providing the best support and maximizing fairness for all our players.

We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at Kickback. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
