By Dave Sawyer, Last updated Feb 16, 2024

Continent 8 Technologies, an award-winning managed hosting, connectivity, and cybersecurity solutions provider has bolstered its presence in the US market going live in the state of Vermont.

Through its data center located in the Burlington region, the infrastructure provider is supporting the nation’s largest online sports betting platforms including DraftKings, FanDuel and Fanatics.

With online sports betting legalized in Vermont on 16 June 2023, it is expected to generate nearly $7m in proceeds for the state in its first full year of legal sports betting, according to government officials.

In December 2023, the Vermont Department of Liquor and Lottery announced the go-live date of 11 January, as well as the three operators that have been awarded licenses.

As a strategic technology solutions provider of choice, Continent 8 has consistently driven an ambitious first-to-market approach, allowing its customers to be ready to launch from day one of a state opening. The new site augments Continent 8’s market-leading offering in the US, where it is now live in 30 states.

Michael Tobin, Founder and CEO of Continent 8 Technologies, said: “We are proud to be able to support our customers in their strategic launch in one of the year’s most anticipated newly regulated online sports betting states. We have been relentless in our pursuit as a market leader and putting customers first.”

“Our bold, first-to-market approach, done so over 25 years, is one of the many reasons our global customers continue to trust us with their mission critical technology and have developed such close strategic partnerships for decades.”

“We are extremely excited to be planting a flag in the state of Vermont, not only for the future of the business, but one where I have a strong personal history.”
