Continent 8 Technologies and Iforium have announced the expansion of their partnership, to pursue exciting opportunities in the emerging US online gaming market.
Iforium is the first tenant at Continent 8’s latest data centre at the Atlantic City Convention Center which opened in June this year in partnership with the CRDA (Casino Reinvestment Development Authority). Designed to Tier 3 standards, it is the first ever purpose built data centre in Atlantic City and is already playing a significant role in growing New Jersey’s reputation as the largest hub for online gaming, sports betting, and eSports in the United States.
Tobin, Co-Founder and CEO of Continent 8 Technologies, said: “We’re delighted
to announce Iforium as the first tenant at our Atlantic City data centre.
Iforium are a long-standing Continent 8 client, but today’s announcement
represents a significant strengthening of our business relationship, and a major
step forward in terms of Continent 8’s commitment to the emerging US market.”
past 12 months, Continent 8’s US multi-state capacities increased to include
Indiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, with
upcoming locations in Florida, Illinois, Iowa, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio,
Oregon, and Tennessee.
Parry, CEO of Iforium, commented: “Our presence in the US online gaming market
is growing rapidly and Continent 8 are providing the gateway with their
state-of-the-art data centre in Atlantic City. It’s an exciting time for
Iforium. We received our transactional waiver from the New Jersey Division of
Gaming Enforcement (DGE) in July, and are now live with our first operator in
the state of New Jersey.”
The granting of the transactional waiver was a landmark
decision for the company and the US sector because it means that the DGE will
allow Iforium to provide licensed operators with its Gameflex casino platform
that now hosts more than 9,000 games from over 100 third-party suppliers.
Continent 8’s advanced data centres and high-quality networks support critical online operations in both private and public-sector organisations in over 40 locations across Europe, Asia, and the Americas.
