Hosting, connectivity, cloud and security provider to the global online gambling industry, Continent 8 Technologies, has added EQL Games to its network of customers in North America.

A pioneer in the live sports lottery games category and creator of the first lottery-only aggregator for US markets, EQL Games will use the Continent 8 Public Cloud to launch its content on the Michigan Lottery’s digital platform.

The lottery content supplier has also opted for Continent 8’s cutting-edge SIEM & SOC security solution, benefiting from an offering that deploys a 24/7 highly trained team to investigate security alerts in a timely manner.

When selecting a technology partner, EQL Games was impressed by Continent 8’s commitment to the US market, where the global IT business is now live in 26 states and counting. In addition, Continent 8’s security solutions, including its market-leading DDoS protection, which is tailored to the iGaming and iLottery industry and comes as standard with Public Cloud, was a key factor.

Brian Koh, CCO at Continent 8 Technologies, says: “We are delighted to have been selected by EQL Games to provide our cloud and security solutions to support their ambitious growth plans in the United States.

“Our first-to-market approach combined with our product offering and unrivalled industry experience meant that EQL Games felt we were the best fit for its requirements.”

Brad Cummings, Founder & CEO at EQL Games, adds: “Continent 8 has built a very strong reputation over the past 25 years for the infrastructure solutions they provide to the larger gaming industry. This experience and track record made it clear Continent 8 is the right partner for us as we grow our business.

“We have a big vision for what EQL Games can accomplish as a lottery content supplier, and with the support of partners like Continent 8, I am more confident than ever in our ability to realize that vision.”
