The organization is now active in 24 states across the US.

Internet Vikings has extended its reach across the US, after it received a license as an online gaming service provider in Connecticut. 

Following this entry into the Constitution State, the company is now bringing its premium hosting solutions to 24 states across the US, as it looks to bring coverage nationwide. 

Connecticut became just the sixth state to launch legal online gambling back in October 2021 and since then the market has continued to grow. 

Recently, Hacksaw Gaming partnered with Internet Vikings as part of a strategic plan to enter and expand in the US market with the duo debuting in New Jersey and West Virginia. 

Internet Vikings COO Kristoffer Ottosson said: "As the Connecticut market experiences significant growth, there's a clear opportunity for additional service providers.  

"Obtaining our license as an online gaming service provider enables us to contribute to this expanding sector and capitalize on its potential." 

Internet Vikings CEO and Founder Rickard Vikström added: "I’m impressed with our team’s speed in securing the Connecticut license within a month from the signing of the agreement with the customer. 

"Looking ahead to 2024, we're set to expand our reach into additional states to continue meeting the needs of the industry." 

Last month, Internet Vikings opened a second data center location in Delaware, a move aiming to extend its reach within the sports betting and iGaming markets.

The purpose of the center for the company is to “deliver reliable and always-on disaster recovery services to operators.”
