Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board Authorizes Continent 8 to Provide Managed Network Services to Gaming Operators

Fort Lauderdale, FL – March 18, 2019 – On March 11, 2019 Content 8 Technologies, the award-winning, multi-jurisdictional global data solutions provider serving New Jersey and Pennsylvania, among other states, was authorized by the PGCB (Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board) to provide co-location, data warehousing and managed network services to online gaming operators.

Continent 8 is uniquely positioned to serve clients currently operating in Pennsylvania and those considering entering the online gaming market. As an officially authorized gaming service provider, Continent 8 is installing clients in Pennsylvania right now. In fact, during the first week, Continent 8 has been able to get customers to go live online within days.

Complex regulatory barriers and a lack of local knowledge often deter gaming operators on licensed premises from expanding their scope of services or geographic reach. Continent 8 removes those concerns and barriers, and as a result of this new authorization as a licensed gaming service provider in Pennsylvania, Continent 8 has the ability to get gaming customers up and running and accepting bets within one week.

Clients that work with Continent 8 Technologies gain immediate access to a global network of industry leading services, deep and unapparelled experience in the gaming sector, and multi-state connectivity that includes 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 ideal for those entering the US sports betting market and planning further growth as the landscape evolves.

Michael Tobin, CEO, Continent 8 Technologies, shared his insights on Pennsylvania’s authorization, stating, “We are very excited to bring our global network and managed services to the online gaming community in Pennsylvania. The new opportunities for gaming operators, including online sports betting operators, will require a partner like Continent 8 that knows the ropes and can quickly get them up and running. The pending sports betting legislation only increases the urgency to set up operations now.”
