Continent 8 Technologies, an award-winning global managed hosting, connectivity, cloud, and cybersecurity provider, has significantly expanded its presence in the US. The company recently secured regulatory approval from the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB) to support licensed iGaming and online sports betting operations within the state.

Continent 8 Technologies received two key approvals from the NGCB. The first authorization allows the company to provide its advanced services through its data center located in Nevada. The second approval enables Continent 8 to service Nevada-licensed operations from its New Jersey data center, according to an announcement made by the company. This dual authorization allows licensed iGaming operators and suppliers using Continent 8’s state-of-the-art data center in Atlantic City to launch operations in Nevada, ensuring zero-compromise connectivity, performance, and latency for optimal user experiences.

The company’s full suite of solutions, designed to meet regulatory compliance in each state and jurisdiction, is now available to customers in Nevada. These services include managed hosting, connectivity, and cloud solutions, which support hybrid cloud deployments with hyperscale partners such as Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Continent 8 has established itself as a leader in the industry through a first-to-market approach across North America. By working closely with regulators, the company ensures that its customers are among the first to go live when a state opens its doors to regulated iGaming and online sports betting. Currently, Continent 8 is operational in 30 US states, with plans for further expansions.

Preferred By Most Operators

This first-to-market strategy, combined with unrivaled regulatory experience and cutting-edge solutions, has positioned Continent 8 as the preferred infrastructure provider for 95% of operators on the EGR US Power Rankings for 2024. This reputation is bolstered by their commitment to customer-centric services and robust infrastructure.

Nick Nally, Chief Revenue Officer at Continent 8 Technologies, highlighted the significance of this expansion, stating, “Our bold and customer-centric approach has positioned us as the number one iGaming infrastructure provider for operators and suppliers targeting the US market, and adding Nevada to our growing network of states strengthens this position.”

Nally further emphasized the uniqueness of securing approvals to service Nevada customers from both in-state and out-of-state locations. “This is further evidence of how we provide our customers with solutions they simply can’t get elsewhere. And this has only been possible because of our close relationship with regulators and the prowess of our infrastructure,” he added.

The expansion into Nevada marks another milestone for Continent 8 Technologies, reinforcing its role as a critical infrastructure provider in the rapidly growing iGaming and online sports betting market in the US. By continuing to innovate and comply with state-specific regulations, Continent 8 aims to maintain its leadership and support the evolving needs of the iGaming industry.
