Continent 8 Technologies and Iforium have announced the expansion of their partnership, to pursue exciting opportunities in the emerging US online gaming market.

Iforium is 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 CRDA (Casino Reinvestment Development Authority). Designed to Tier 3 standards, it is the first ever purpose built data centre in Atlantic City and is already 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.

Michael Tobin, Co-Founder and CEO of Continent 8 Technologies, said: “We’re delighted to announce Iforium as the first tenant at our Atlantic City data centre. 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 increased to include Indiana, Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, with upcoming locations in Florida, Illinois, Iowa, New Hampshire, New York, Ohio, Oregon, and Tennessee.

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 (DGE) in July, and are now live with our first operator in the state of New Jersey.”

The granting of the transactional waiver was a landmark decision for the company and the US sector because it means that the DGE will allow Iforium to provide licensed operators with its Gameflex casino platform that now hosts more than 9,000 games from over 100 third-party suppliers.

Continent 8’s advanced data centres and high-quality networks support critical online operations in both private and public-sector organisations in over 40 locations across Europe, Asia, and the Americas. The company will be welcoming more clients to its Atlantic City data centre in the coming months. Visit https://www.atlanticcity-datacenter.com/ for more information.
