Global IaaS hosting provider Leaseweb has opened up its global data center services for iGaming companies, according to a new Leaseweb blog post this week. It means that Leaseweb’s data centers globally are now allowing online gambling businesses to setup and build their ICT infrastructures on Leaseweb’s hybrid data center offerings worldwide.
iGaming includes online activities such as poker, sports betting, bingo, lotteries, and casinos – where one can play traditional casino games such as roulette or blackjack, but online. On account of recent political and legal developments globally and the maturing nature of the iGaming industry, Leaseweb is now proactively welcoming licensed gambling companies operating in regulated markets to partner with them.
Until recently, typical jurisdictions for online gambling activities were limited to countries such as Malta, Gibraltar, Isle of Man, Curacao, Costa Rica, Antigua, Barbados, and Kahnawaki (Canada). At the moment, online gambling is progressively changing from an unregulated or in some countries even illegal activity into a fully regulated form of entertainment driving the necessity for affordable, scalable, fast and secure infrastructures, stated Greg Behr, iGaming Senior Business Development Manager at Leaseweb in the Leaseweb blog post.
