Online gaming data centre specialist Continent 8 Technologies has strengthened its partnership alongside Iforium as both parties pursue opportunities in the emerging US online gaming market.

The casino aggregation platform provider has become the first tenant at Continent 8’s latest data centre at the Atlantic City Convention Center, which opened in June this year in partnership with the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority

Lauded as the first ever purpose built data centre in Atlantic City, the entity is striving to develop into playing a significant role in growing New Jersey’s reputation as the largest hub for online gaming, sports betting and esports in the United States.

“We’re delighted to announce Iforium as the first tenant at our Atlantic City data centre,” noted Michael Tobin, co-founder and CEO of Continent 8 Technologies

“Iforium are a long-standing Continent 8 client, but today’s announcement represents a significant strengthening of our business relationship, and a major step forward in terms of Continent 8’s commitment to the emerging US market.”

Over the past 12 months, Continent 8’s US multi-state capacities have increased to include Indiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia.

Furthermore, upcoming locations in Florida, Illinois, Iowa, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Oregon, and Tennessee, are also in the pipeline.

Phil Parry, CEO of Iforium, commented: “Our presence in the US online gaming market is growing rapidly and Continent 8 are providing the gateway with their state-of-the-art data centre in Atlantic City. It’s an exciting time for Iforium. 

“We received our transactional waiver from the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement in July, and are now live with our first operator in the state of New Jersey.”
