It all began on Thursday, 22nd June 2006. Happy 14th Birthday Iforium!

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, on March 20th 2020 we took the difficult but correct decision to move all Iforium Staff to remote working with immediate effect.

After spending many weeks apart, I am delighted to confirm that Team Iforium are now phase returning to the office.

These past few months have certainly been a testing time for everyone. Working from home and looking after our families, each individuals situation was different but we supported each other both personally and professionally.

Team Iforium moved seamlessly to remote working and have shown yet again, the team spirit and “can do” attitude that makes this one very special group. They have delivered an exceptional level of service and productivity in the midst of an unprecedented situation.

Lastly, I would also like to say thank you to our valued partners for their continued support of Iforium during this challenging period. You supported us as much as we supported you!

A new normal awaits but most importantly, we are coming back together.

Iforium CEO

Both Continent 8 and Iforium are Isle of Man success stories, and brands that are known and respected throughout the iGaming sector. But it’s the success they have achieved in partnership which is the most striking example of how Continent 8’s years of experience in the industry, and global reach, can deliver rapid growth.

Iforium began working with Continent 8 in 2016 by providing hosting services in London. As Iforium COO Andrew Cairns points out, the decision to form that partnership was not just a matter of wanting to work with an Isle of Man headquartered business. He said: “The fact that both companies have a presence in the Isle of Man was important and obviously helped to develop a strong partnership – however, first and foremost we chose Continent 8 because of their technical capabilities, global network, experience, and reputation within the industry.”

In 2019 the partnership expanded when Iforium responded to the opportunities arising from the growing US online gaming market. Iforium became the first tenant at Continent 8’s data centre at the Atlantic City Convention Center which opened in June 2019 in partnership with the CRDA (Casino Reinvestment Development Authority).

Both companies reached significant landmarks during this time. For Continent 8 the opening of the Tier 3 designed facility was Atlantic City’s first purpose-built data centre and set the standard in the industry, while Iforium received a transactional waiver from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE), meaning that they could provide licensed operators with its Gameflex casino aggregation and seamless bonusing platform which today combines over 10,000 games from 100+ gaming vendors. These milestones would enable both companies to capitalise on the growing online gaming market in the US. The speed at which Continent was able to fast-track Iforium’s entry into the US market is another notable aspect of the partnership.

Andrew says that the decision to continue to work with Continent 8 as Iforium explored growth opportunities in the US was based on several key factors: “We already knew that Continent 8’s connectivity, hosting, and cloud services were all first class, and that they had a strong, resilient, global network of data centres and strategic points of presence,’’ he commented. “We also needed a partner that had an in-depth understanding of the US market, and one that was also respected and trusted by US regulators. Continent 8’s proven track record of being ahead of the curve regarding regulatory developments – and their ability to get us to market as quickly as possible – made them our first choice.”

Today, Continent 8’s multi-state capacity includes facilities in Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and West Virginia, with data centres in Florida, Nevada, Ohio, and Oregon coming soon.

In Europe, Continent 8 is also supporting Iforium with its growth strategy, most recently in Malta.

Andrew adds: “Continent 8 provide us with the flexibility we require for varying levels of infrastructure within different markets and jurisdictions. In Malta, where Iforium currently hold a Recognition Notice from the Malta Gaming Authority, we are utilising Continent 8’s Cloud platform to meet regulatory in country data requirements, whilst also being closely located to many major clients also hosting within Malta.”

Continent 8 serves the iGaming industry by providing a wide range of innovative data security, connectivity, and managed hosting solutions to clients across the globe. It is the trusted infrastructure partner to many of the largest brands in iGaming. Its global network – now spanning 50 locations across Europe, Asia, and the Americas – is proof of their technical achievements. However, as

David Black, Continent 8 Technologies’ Managing Director for Europe, Middle East and Africa, points out, the Iforium partnership illustrates several more key factors behind their success: “For long-standing clients, a major advantage of working with us over many years stems from our collective knowledge of iGaming around the world, our respect within the industry, and the detailed understanding we gain over time about the client’s unique needs. Working with Iforium has been a rewarding experience for everyone in the Continent 8 team and we have been delighted to play a part in their achievements in the US and Europe.”

Iforium, the leading casino aggregation platform provider, has further bolstered its comprehensive content portfolio with the integration of real-money games from Design Works Gaming (DWG).

DWG, well known for its land-based and social casino content, will debut an initial 20 real-money games, all accessible to Iforium’s global operator partners via its award-winning Gameflex platform.

These will include titles such as 10x Fortune, Bear Tracks, Empire of Wilds and Diamonds Sapphires & Rubies, a classic Vegas-style slot packed with bonus features such as stacked wilds, wheel bonuses and a 4-level progressive jackpot.

The 20 games are expected to go live later this month with further content integrations planned later this year. DWG produced and went live with more than 125 new games across social casinos in 2019, an increase of 14% percent compared with 2018.

Iforium’s Gameflex platform combines more than 10,000 games from more than 100 gaming vendors and is available to multi-channel operators and suppliers via a single API integration.

The aggregator further established its tier one credentials last month following ISO IEC 27001 certification for the operations behind its Gameflex platform. The standard ensures that Iforium’s senior management, as well as all its operations and controls, are fully compliant with the data protection practices and procedures set by the International Organisation for Standardisation and the International Electrotechnical Commission.

Phil Parry, CEO of Iforium said: “We’re pleased to add and offer our global customers with DWG’s first ever real-money games. If these are anywhere near as successful as they are across social casinos then it will be a win-win for both companies.”

Andy Harris, CEO at DWG UK, said: “Iforium have become one of the industry’s leading content aggregators, and we are extremely happy to be able to offer our games and promotional tools to their operating partners.

“We’re really looking forward to introducing our top performing land-based and social content to the real money gaming market. Our portfolio comprises a great mix of video and stepper slots, including the very best of the many titles we have made for Novomatic, Aristocrat and IGT, authentic scratch cards and unique non-reel spinning games. We strongly believe Iforium’s customers are going to benefit greatly from being first to market with this varied and proven suite of content.”

Iforium, the global casino aggregation platform provider, has further established its tier one credentials following ISO IEC 27001 certification for the operations behind its award-winning Gameflex platform.

To receive its certification, Iforium’s internal processes were rigorously tested against the Standard’s strict assessment criteria, ensuring it met the 114 controls and 7 clauses required over a nine-month period.

With a series of internal audits undertaken prior to the certification process, the standard ensures that Iforium’s senior management, as well as all its operations and controls, are fully compliant with the data protection practices and procedures set by the International Organisation for Standardisation and the International Electrotechnical Commission.

As a result, Iforium can demonstrate to its tier one operator partners that its global operations are undertaken with the highest certification available for data protection and system security.

Commenting on its certification, Andrew Cairns, COO at Iforium said:

“We are delighted to be awarded ISO 27001 certification for the operations behind the industry’s largest and most popular aggregation platform. We see this as the perfect endorsement to Iforium’s commitment to the security of its systems and client data reflecting the hard work and dedication by the entire Iforium team in this area.
