The state has recently voted in favor of passing sports betting legislation.

Continent 8 Technologies is to launch in Kentucky. This comes after Kentucky recently voted in favor of passing sports betting legislation. The bill is expected to be signed into law imminently.

Earlier this year, Continent 8 expanded its data center capacity in Atlantic City by 30%. Continent 8 also added new sites in five markets in the US this year, in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana and the US territory of Puerto Rico.

Nick Nally, Chief Revenue Officer at Continent 8 Technologies, said, “Our rapid launch into Kentucky is only possible because of the unrivalled knowledge and experience that Continent 8’s planning and delivery function has in implementing its solutions in the regulated US market. We work ahead of operator service requirements to be able to deliver fast to our customers.”

Dany Chapdelaine, Director of Planning and Delivery at Continent 8 Technologies, said, “Our vast regulatory knowledge and experience, coupled with strong relationships with customers, suppliers and vendors has enabled us to deploy our services in Kentucky at a rapid pace. A huge well done to the team involved in this significant project.

“Our approach in North America has seen us become the trusted infrastructure partner of choice for the vast majority of operators and suppliers in the market and adding Kentucky to our growing network is another major step forward for us and our customers.”

Operators and suppliers in Kentucky will be able to access Continent 8’s full suite of solutions from a dedicated data center in the state.

Kentucky has moved quickly to regulate online sports betting. Continent 8 has long been keen to get into the market, with analysts predicting it will generate $23m in tax revenue each year.
