As the data centre and managed services provider of choice to the online gaming industry Continent 8 Technologies is proud of a long history of successful engagement and compliance with regulating bodies around the world.
As the sector has grown globally the company has always been entirely supportive of individual regulators in their efforts towards enforcing the conditions imposed on their respective licensees. These conditions are important to ensure fair, legal and regulated gameplay ensuring that the interests of players are protected, at all times. In this regard Continent 8 serves as a fiduciary for the regulators whilst providing superior technical solutions to the licensees themselves.
As such, Continent 8 heartily welcomes this week’s announcements by both the Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC) of the Mohawk Territory of Kahnawake and the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement (DGE) outlining a series of new steps relating to KGC licensed operators who may have previously provided services to residents of the United States from the Mohawk-owned data centre in Kahnawake.
Given this new agreement, Continent 8 has worked in collaboration with the KGC and DGE around a number of specific requests related to individual licensees operating in the Kahnawake jurisdiction who have been found in violation of this agreement. A number of steps have already been taken including, where appropriate, termination of related services.
As the only licensed Data Centre provider in New Jersey, Continent 8 remains fully committed to the further regulation, and growth of the industry within the United States and beyond. We will therefore continue to grow our close working relationship with all global regulators and take any further necessary steps to support the further growth, regulation and success of the industry.
