Continent 8 Technologies, the award-winning global managed hosting, connectivity, cloud and cybersecurity provider to the iGaming and online sports betting industry, augments its US offering having received approval in the state of Nevada.

The company has received two approvals from the Nevada Gaming Control Board (NGCB). The first authorizes Continent 8 to provide its cutting-edge services via its data center site located in the state, and the second allows it to service Nevada-licensed operations from its New Jersey site. This enables licensed iGaming operators and suppliers utilizing Continent 8’s state-of-the-art data center in Atlantic City to launch in the Silver State and benefit from zero-compromise connectivity, performance and latency for optimal user experiences.

Continent 8’s full suite of solutions designed to meet regulatory compliance in each state and jurisdiction is available to customers in Nevada. These solutions cover managed hosting, connectivity and cloud. This includes supporting hybrid cloud deployments with hyperscale partners like Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Working closely with regulators ensures that its customers are the first to go live when each state opens its doors to regulated iGaming and online sports betting for the first time. Continent 8 is live in 30 US states, with further launches in the pipeline.

This first-to-market approach, unrivalled regulatory experience and cutting-edge suite of solutions have seen Continent 8 emerge as the go-to infrastructure provider of choice for 95% of operators on the EGR US Power Rankings for 2024.

Nick Nally, Chief Revenue Officer at Continent 8 Technologies, said: “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.

“That we have also uniquely secured approvals to service Nevada customers from both in-state and out-of-state 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.”
