Tuesday August 26, 2014 : CONTINENT 8 SIGNS HIGH 5 GAMES
 
New Jersey games developer chooses Gibraltar datacentre for its European push.
 
The up-and-coming New Jersey online gambling software developer High 5 Games has chosen Continent 8 Technologies' Gibraltar datacentre as its operational platform for continued penetration into the European market.
 
In a press release this week the software developer says that Continent 8 is one of the most secure and well equipped hosting centres available, and is ideal for its continued push into the European market.
 
In the last six months High 5 Games has been making significant headway in the European and U.K. markets and the company’s business development team has been finalising a number of integration and managed solution agreements.
 
The commitment to Continent 8 Technologies is one of several definitive steps in establishing a presence in Gibraltar, says Peter Williams, director of global sales for Continent 8.
 
“We are pleased to welcome High 5 Games, who operate the highest-rated social casino on Facebook, on board as a new customer. High 5 Games’ choice of Continent 8 reflects our continued investment in our datacentre footprint to provide our customers with a secure and reliable platform from which to operate and grow their business.”
 
High 5 has in addition secured office space and equipment in Gibraltar, and is in the process of applying for a Gibraltar remote gaming software supplier licence.
 
The company has been delivering its games to European operators through a distribution deal with International Game Technology and its Vault remote gaming server.
 
Once the Gibraltar gaming license is finalised, Vault will carry a portfolio of nearly a hundred H5G video slot titles to European and U.K. i-gaming operators looking for more diverse content.
 
In July the games developer inked a distribution deal with NYX Interactive.
