Continent 8 Expands Atlantic City OperationsReading Time: 2 minutes

New Jersey licensed Continent 8 Technologies, the world’s largest online gambling data center and global network solutions provider, is expanding its capacity in Atlantic City – anticipating Governor Phil Murphy signing the sports-betting bill recently passed in the New Jersey Legislature. During the Governor’s scheduled keynote address at the upcoming East Coast Gaming Congress (June 13-14) in Atlantic City, Murphy will undoubtedly address the new law and the future of gaming.

Continent 8 has been supporting clients in Atlantic City since 2014 and increases data center and network capacity to meet the growing needs of the online gaming industry, as required. In addition to supporting online gambling, sports betting, and eSports vendors in New Jersey, Continent 8 will soon go live in Pennsylvania and Nevada.

The repealing of PASPA accelerated the demand for IT infrastructure solutions that fit the unique needs of online gaming and also meet online gaming licensing requirements,” said Michael Tobin, CEO of Continent 8. “We are responding to those needs immediately with further infrastructure expansion in Atlantic City. We will strengthen this expansion again this coming July by adding another location with full redundancy and complete disaster recovery capability.

As the only independent IT provider licensed by New Jersey’s Division of Gaming Enforcement to supply both data center and network services to online gambling licensees, Continent 8 is well positioned to be the leader in connecting, managing, and securing critical data associated with the online gaming industry,” said Nick Nally, Chief Development Officer for Continent 8. “By adding significant capacity in Atlantic City, we can definitely support clients seeking to capture the market opportunity presented as a result of the PASPA repealing.

This additional capacity being deployed is connected to over 30 other Continent 8 locations around the world. These locations all feature state-of-the-art managed services such as detecting and mitigating DDoS attacks that can be disastrous to online gaming. It will also provide a worldwide network for gaming companies to expand globally with private connectivity to existing established European and Asian operators, payment providers, software companies, and back-office systems in other licensed jurisdictions unlike any other company.

Interested online gaming organizations anywhere in the world should contact us to learn how Continent 8 can help take advantage of the incredible growth opportunities that are unfolding.

BTG licences its patented and trademarked MegaWays™ mechanic to UK-based developer Storm Gaming Technology Ltd

 

Pioneering online slot developer, Big Time Gaming, has struck yet another deal to licence its patented and trademarked MegaWays™ mechanic to Storm Gaming. Storm Gaming will be combining this with some of its brand licenses including I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here, The Chase and Tipping Point to take its slots to the next level and deliver a superior player experience. The partnership will allow Storm Gaming to design and develop its own games using MegaWays™, which debuted in Big Time Gaming’s Dragon Born over three years ago.

Blueprint, another licensee of MegaWays™ has had great success leveraging BTG’s ground breaking IP, and Storm are sure to follow suit with a range of interesting products penned for land-based and online deployment Q1 2019.

MegaWays™ is a random reel modifier system that allows any given spin to produce a different number of symbols across the reels, allowing players to experience a totally different game with every spin. Big Time Gaming has cornered the market with this innovation with games like Bonanza, White Rabbit and Extra Chilli, and will be launching Who Wants to be a Millionaire in November – the most anticipated branded slot launch in history.

Nik Robinson, Big Time Gaming CEO, said: “We’re looking forward to seeing how Storm use the MegaWays™ mechanic. Storm has some highly entertaining IP licenses that will work seamlessly with MegaWays™.”

AGA Releases New Research On Economic Impact Of Gaming IndustryReading Time: 1 minute

 

Report shows 9.5 percent increase in economic output; industry now supports 1.8 million jobs nationwide

 

the American Gaming Association (AGA) released a new study examining the striking impact the gaming industry has on the U.S. economy – providing stable jobs to nearly two million Americans and generating billions of dollars in tax revenue. This is the first comprehensive report on the gaming industry’s national economic impact since 2014.

Oxford Economics’ 2018 study found that the U.S. gaming industry:

  • Contributes $261 billion to the U.S. economy, a 9.5 percent increase since 2014;
  • Supports nearly 1.8 million jobs, up from 1.7 million jobs in 2014; and
  • Generates $40.8 billion in tax revenues to federal, state and local governments.

“Gaming companies across the country are enabling long-lasting careers for their employees and making a huge impact on their communities through innovative partnerships with local nonprofits, volunteerism and the generation of revenue that supports critical services. The industry’s tax revenue alone provides enough funding to hire 692,000 new teachers,” said Sara Slane, senior vice president of public affairs for the American Gaming Association. “Since our last study in 2014, casino gaming has expanded into new markets, offered innovative new entertainment options and enhanced its position as a key contributor to local, state and federal economies.”

The research was commissioned by AGA and conducted by Oxford Economics. More information about the study can be viewed here.

About AGA: 

The American Gaming Association is the premier national trade group representing the $261 billion U.S. casino industry, which supports 1.8 million jobs nationwide. AGA members include commercial and tribal casino operators, gaming suppliers and other entities affiliated with the gaming industry. It is the mission of the AGA to achieve sound policies and regulations consistent with casino gaming’s modern appeal and vast economic contributions.
