Managed hosting, cloud, connectivity and security provider Continent 8 Technologies has announced that it has been licensed to deploy its regulated Gaming Cloud solution to iGaming operators and suppliers in the American state of Pennsylvania.
The Isle of Man-based innovator used an official Tuesday press release to detail that the certification from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board will allow partners in ‘The Keystone State’ to utilize its scalable, multi-tenanted and resilient IaaS Gaming Cloud platform so as to host a range of infrastructure including virtual games.
Continent 8 Technologies disclosed that its public Gaming Cloud advance is already live with iGaming operators in a number of North American jurisdictions including the American state of New Jersey and, most recently, the Canadian province of Ontario. The company also asserted that the Pennsylvania licensing is all part of its mission to become ‘the go-to hosting and connectivity provider’ for jurisdictions across the continent.
Nick Nally serves as the Americas Managing Director for Continent 8 Technologies and he used the press release to declare that his firm ‘works closely with regulators across the fast-growing North American market’ in order to make sure its solutions suite ‘is fully compliant’ and can offer customers the ability ‘to leverage the first-mover advantage in each state.’

“Receiving approval from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board for our Gaming Cloud forms part of our aggressive strategy to deliver our regulated cloud to multiple new states in the United States as demand for our cloud solutions continues to rise.”
For his part and the Chief Product Officer for Continent 8 Technologies, Justin Cosnett, proclaimed that the licensing terms from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board mandate that all Gaming Cloud hardware being utilized locally must be hosted at ‘primary and backup locations’ in the state of over 13 million people, which legalized iGaming in 2017 and racked up aggregated gross gaming revenues last year of almost $900 million. He went on to disclose that his company currently has three such facilities in Pennsylvania and is committed to expanding its services in the eastern state ‘to serve customer demand’ and create ‘a fully-regulated hosting environment’ under the terms of its new interactive gaming service provider authorization.
