SBTech continues to entrust Continent 8 Technologies as its global datacentre and connectivity provider. In 2018, Continent 8’s U.S. multi-state capacities increased to include Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and West Virginia, with upcoming locations in New York and Ohio. Continent 8‘s seamless suite of hosting, security and network managed services is primed for those immediately entering the sports betting market in the U.S. and planning further growth as the landscape evolves.
“We have made an excellent start in the U.S. since the market went live in August last year, securing a series of key strategic partnerships across regulated states, with many more to come as other states begin to open,” said Richard Carter, CEO, SBTech. “We have an excellent relationship with Continent 8, and they will be a major partner of ours as the market continues to evolve and we continue to expand across the country.”
“We are delighted to support SBTech’s rapid growth, particularly in the ever-changing U.S. landscape,” said Michael Tobin, CEO, Continent 8 Technologies. “Continent 8 has been licensed and operating in New Jersey since 2014 and continues to add creative U.S. offerings.
