Infrastructure is a key consideration for online gambling operators and suppliers in regulated markets across the world, and Continent 8 Technologies has been providing this for 25 years via cutting-edge, reliable solutions. Continent 8 is attending SiGMA Curacao this September 25-28th – meet them at stand 3 and 4.
The global online gambling industry continues to expand at pace and much of this growth is coming from jurisdictions embracing regulation. The US is the perfect example whereby more than half the country has got onboard with legalizing online sports betting or iGaming.
Operators and suppliers want to be able to enter these regulated markets easily and quickly. And when it comes to infrastructure requirements and considerations, this often differs for each local market, causing serious headaches for iGaming businesses.
Hosting, connectivity and security are key considerations, but it can be incredibly tough to ensure that infrastructure is compliant in a single market, let alone multiple markets. To do this, operators and suppliers must partner with an infrastructure provider that can offer a compliant solution in all jurisdictions they wish to target.
Continent 8 has been powering the regulated iGaming market for 25 years, operational in many recognized jurisdictions worldwide, including Kahnawake, Gibraltar, Malta and the Isle of Man. We have fostered incredibly strong relationships with regulators in these core jurisdictions, and we have successfully deployed infrastructure in these markets.
This includes state-of-the-art and highly secure data centers among other solutions required for operators and suppliers to overcome the complexities and challenges of the regulatory landscape.
In fact, when it comes to the regulated US market, where we are live in 28 states and counting, we support 85% of operators on the EGR US Power Rankings 2023.
Our aggressive first-to-market approach to expansion has seen our global connected network approach 100 sites – a number we will surpass by the end of the year.
Our data centres and connectivity solutions have been designed to meet all requirements and needs. This includes a powerful Public Cloud offering available via Montreal, Gibraltar, Malta and the Isle of Man, as well as Dublin, Taiwan, Toronto, Colombia and multiple US states.
Our Public Cloud offers cost-effective hosting that is secure and reliable. It is a resilient, multi-tenanted IaaS platform that hosts virtualized customer infrastructure. We offer a usage-based commercial model so that customers can easily scale up or down demand in line with need, making it one of the most efficient ways of leveraging the opportunities presented by the cloud.
Infrastructure must also be dependable and innovative if it is to deliver the experience that players have come to expect, while also being resilient to the high volume of cyber attacks being launched against this industry on a daily basis. To put this into perspective, Continent 8 blocked more than 1,100 DDoS attacks against customers in Q2 2023 alone.
For many, it’s a case of when an attack will happen and not if, and that’s why it’s vital that all infrastructure sits behind multi-layered cyber defences that take in DDoS and WAAP protection as well as MDR/EDR and SIEM/SOC solutions.
Continent 8 is attending SiGMA Curacao with members of the team on hand to talk to operators and suppliers about our full suite of award-winning solutions that are fully compliant with regulations in core iGaming jurisdictions.

Infrastructure is a vital part of any online business, and at Continent 8 we work with our customers to ensure they have the best foundation on which to build and grow in any regulated market they wish to target.
