New Jersey licensed Continent 8 Technologies, the world’s largest online gambling data center and global network solutions provider, is expanding its capacity in Atlantic City – anticipating Governor Phil Murphy signing the sports-betting bill recently passed in the New Jersey Legislature. During the Governor’s scheduled keynote address at the upcoming East Coast Gaming Congress (June 13-14) in Atlantic City, Murphy will undoubtedly address the new law and the future of gaming.

Continent 8 has been supporting clients in Atlantic City since 2014 and increases data center and network capacity to meet the growing needs of the online gaming industry, as required. In addition to supporting online gambling, sports betting, and eSports vendors in New Jersey, Continent 8 will soon go live in Pennsylvania and Nevada.

The repealing of PASPA accelerated the demand for IT infrastructure solutions that fit the unique needs of online gaming and also meet online gaming licensing requirements,” said Michael Tobin, CEO of Continent 8. “We are responding to those needs immediately with further infrastructure expansion in Atlantic City. We will strengthen this expansion again this coming July by adding another location with full redundancy and complete disaster recovery capability.

As the only independent IT provider licensed by New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement to supply both data center and network services to online gambling licensees, Continent 8 is well positioned to be the leader in connecting, managing, and securing critical data associated with the online gaming industry,” said Nick Nally, Chief Development Officer for Continent 8. “By adding significant capacity in Atlantic City, we can definitely support clients seeking to capture the market opportunity presented as a result of the PASPA repealing.

This additional capacity being deployed is connected to over 30 other Continent 8 locations around the world. These locations all feature state-of-the-art managed services such as detecting and mitigating DDoS attacks that can be disastrous to online gaming. It will also provide a worldwide network for gaming companies to expand globally with private connectivity to existing established European and Asian operators, payment providers, software companies, and back-office systems in other licensed jurisdictions unlike any other company.

Electronic pull-tab gambling sales increases in Minnesota

Minnesota has witnessed a significant rise in the sales of electronic pull-tabs in the last fiscal year. The sales increased by 80 per cent to generate $360 million.

The rise in pull-tab sales comes after a sedate debut in 2012. Interest grew after the original manufacturer folded and Pilot Games took over.

“I know we started rough in those early years, but now, when you look at the chart, it’s really climbing — and it’s still in less than 40 per cent of all the charitable gaming sites in Minnesota,” Tom Barrett, executive director of gambling board, which oversees charitable, but not tribal, gaming in Minnesota.

Paper pull-tab sales accounted for about 75 per cent of the charitable gambling industry this year, down from about 82 per cent of the market last year. But sales were still up 6.8 per cent year over year, Barrett said.

Funds from electronic pull-tabs were pledged to pay for the US Bank Stadium. The increase in sales means the state may be able to pay off the mortgage early and save money that would’ve gone to interest payments.

“I think it is 2022 or 2023 is the first year we could start paying (the construction bonds) off early,” said Myron Frans, commissioner at the Minnesota Department of Management and Budget. “We hope we’re careful about how we use those funds going forward.”

The board’s report found that charitable gambling overall topped $2 billion in sales for the first time, with $1.6 billion paid out in prizes.

Ohio Governor-elect Mike DeWine said that sports betting is indeed coming to Ohio. However, he did not specify a clear date.

He also stressed the importance of formulating proper regulations. The state legislature had already initiated the first steps in this regard, though without much progress.

“It’s coming to Ohio whether people want it or not,” said DeWine to News 5. “We need to be there to do it right, the right way. I’m not a big fan of betting but it is a reality and Ohio voters have made that decision with the casinos and other things throughout the years and so it’s here, I think it’s important for Ohio to do it right and so I will work with the state legislature when I’m governor to make sure this is done right, make sure that we can control it, make sure that we can regulate it.”

DeWine also reacted to the American Gaming Association’s claim that approximately US$150 billion are wagered every year illegally in the country. “Look, people want to gamble; you know a tremendous amount of gambling goes on under the table in regard to sports. We need now that the United States Supreme Court has made their ruling we’re going to have every state is going to be jumping into this, people are going to be able to do it on their app,” he concluded.
