With the dawn of sports betting in the United States, the need for reliable data has increased exponentially for gaming companies. Not only must the data be safe, it also must be accessible quickly. Continent 8 has been serving the industry since the dawn of iGaming in the early 2000s. Michael Tobin, the CEO of the company, explains how the data is gathered and stored, how it is protected, and why a new data center in Atlantic City will become an important cog in the wheel of U.S. sports betting and esports. He spoke with GGB Publisher Roger Gros at G2E in Las Vegas in October.
