Letting customers host virtual servers, computers, containers, storage, and network edge services, the iGaming Public Cloud is suitable for all Ohio Casino Control Commission (OCCC) licensed operators and suppliers.

Quickest & Simplest Route

The company’s state-of-the-art Public Cloud is already available to clients in other regulated online gaming markets across North America, including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Michigan. The latter currently attracts more and more operators and suppliers, with US-focused Wizard Games recently debuted in the state with BetMGM.

Taking pride in being the first service provider to offer this cutting-edge solution in Ohio, David Brace, Innovation Director at Continent 8 Technologies, said:

“In terms of market entry, cloud offers businesses the quickest and simplest route into a new state. This is true both for new entrants, as well as licensees who utilize the Continent 8 iGaming Cloud in other jurisdictions. The flexibility and scalability of the iGaming Cloud provides a range of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery options for those already live in the state and looking to protect their platforms.”

The iGaming Public Cloud significantly adds to the company’s existing range of services in the state, which includes data centers, network connectivity, and cyber security solutions.

The First Mover

Officially launched on January 1, 2023, regulated online and mobile sports betting in Ohio just makes its first steps in the industry. However, according to reports, the state recorded an incredible 11.3 million transactions only during the New Year’s weekend. By the way, Tipico, was among the first to secure strategic partnerships in the Buckeye State.

Continent 8 Technologies already boasts a presence in 25 US states, with a number of additional sites ready to go live in the coming months. Among the aforementioned states are Nevada, Minnesota, and Georgia. At the moment, the global IT business is providing support to more than 80% of the 2022 EGR Power US Ranking operators.

Justin Cosnett, Chief Product Officer at Continent 8 Technologies, commented: “Expanding our iGaming Public Cloud capability and enabling fast market entry for our customers is an important part of our overall cloud, security and connectivity growth strategy.

“We understand the power of the first-mover, pay-as-you-grow advantage in such highly competitive states and markets, and strive to offer this to our customers.”
