Continent 8 Technologies, a multijurisdictional global data solutions provider, has been authorised by the PGCB (Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board) to provide co-location, data warehousing and managed network services to online gaming operators.

Michael Tobin, CEO, Continent 8 Technologies, shared his insights on Pennsylvania’s authorisation stating, “We are very excited to bring our global network and managed services to the online gaming community in Pennsylvania. The new opportunities for gaming operators, including online sports
betting companies, will require a partner like Continent 8 that is knowledgeable and delivers expeditious results. The upcoming launch date for mobile online casino and sports betting only increases the urgency to set up operations now.”

Continent 8 is positioned to serve clients currently operating in Pennsylvania and those considering entering the online gaming market. As an officially authorised Gaming Service Provider, Continent 8 has already opened up two centers in Pennsylvania allowing for both primary and disaster recovery operations. In fact, following the awarding of the authorisation on March 11, Continent 8 was successful in getting customers operational in time for the beginning of March Madness this year.

Continent 8, as part of its commitment to the ever-expanding US online gambling market, will be opening up operations in advance of every regulated state going live. Clients that work with Continent 8 Technologies gain immediate access to a global network of industry services, experience in the gaming sector, and multi-state connectivity that currently includes Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. Continent 8’s suite of hosting, security, and network managed services is ideal for those entering the US sports betting market and planning further growth as the landscape evolves.
