Sports betting solutions provider SBTech has expanded its partnership with Continent 8 Technologies to accelerate growth in the US market.
Continent 8 will act as SBTech’s global datacentre and connectivity provider as its multi-state capacity is increased to include Mississippi, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia, with upcoming locations in New York and Ohio.
“We have made an excellent start in the US since the market went live in August last year, securing a series of key strategic partnerships across regulated states, with many more to come as other states begin to open,” said Richard Carter, chief executive of SBTech. “We have an excellent relationship with Continent 8, and they will be a major partner of ours as the market continues to evolve and we continue to expand across the country.”
Continent 8 Technologies CEO Michael Tobin commented: “We are delighted to support SBTech’s rapid growth, particularly in the ever-changing US landscape. Continent 8 has been licensed and operating in New Jersey since 2014 and continues to add creative US offerings.
“Spring 2019 will see the delivery of our independent, licensed data centre in the state-owned Atlantic City Convention Center. This neutral hub will be connected to our global network and rapidly evolving US multi-state presence, offering our full range of industry leading services.
“This is an exciting time for sports betting in the United States. We are confident our dynamic, evolving solutions will enable SBTech and others to prosper in this growing market,” he said.
