What We're Building

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.

Since being founded in December 2014 we’ve built some of the largest skill-gaming and gambling products on the internet. Millions of players have won hundreds of millions of dollars across our products. We’re funded by Y Combinator.
