New Jersey-based casino games supplier High 5 Games (H5G) has agreed a deal with Continent 8 to use its Gibraltar-based data centre solution as it looks to establish a presence in the jurisdiction.

The agreement has been sealed as part of H5G’s drive to establish itself as a major supplier in the European and UK iGaming markets, with its business development team finalising deals with integration and managed solution agreements with a range of companies including NYX Gaming Group.

In order to facilitate this growth the supplier is in the process of applying for a Gibraltar remote gaming software supplier licence, agreeing a partnership with Continent 8 as part of the process.

Continent 8 director of global sales Peter Williams said he was pleased to welcome H5G as a new customer.

“High 5 Games' choice of Continent 8 reflects our continued investment in our data centre footprint to provide our customers with a secure and reliable platform from which to operate and grow their business,” Williams said.

H5G has also sourced office space, purchased server equipment and is also taking advice from industry association the Gibraltar Betting and Gaming Association regarding its licence application.

The supplier’s games including popular titles like Da Vinci Diamonds and Golden Goddess are already live in the European market through a distribution deal with IGT. H5G is set to roll out a wider selection of slot games in the fourth quarter of the year through its VAULT remote game server.

This will see its portfolio of more than one hundred games made available to European and UK iGaming operators.
