Internet Vikings, a leading provider of licensed in-state hosting solutions in the United States, has opened its second data center in Delaware. This strategic expansion strengthens the company’s position within the iGaming and sports betting market, enabling it to deliver reliable and always-on disaster recovery services to operators across the state of Delaware.

According to Internet Vikings’ official statement, the opening of a second data center in Delaware is a company response to increasing industry demands for stability and reliability within the region.

In September of 2023, Internet Vikings became the first hosting provider to implement full redundancy in West Virginia, responding to industry demands for disaster recovery in light of the increased risk of ransomware attacks. By opening a second data center in Delaware, the company underscores its commitment to meeting the evolving needs of the iGaming and sports betting sectors with reliable hosting solutions.

“Our clients require absolute assurance that their platforms will operate seamlessly, irrespective of unforeseen circumstances,” the Chief Technology Officer for Internet Vikings, Kristoffer Ottosson, said. “This impelled our decision to bolster our presence in Delaware with a second data center, providing premium redundancy and performance.”

With its commitment to security, reliability, and client success, Internet Vikings is charting its own course in the iGaming and sports betting landscape across the United States.

While Delaware, which is affectionately known as ‘The First State’, was the first to move on legal sports betting, it was quite late to offer online sports wagering. Better late than never, though.

Here’s what you need to know:

  • Legal and regulated sports betting has been available in Delaware since June of 2018 soon after the United States Supreme Court overturned the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA).
  • Neighboring states Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Maryland have all established online sports betting programs in the years afterwards while Delaware sat on single-event sports betting and parlay cards at in-person casinos and retail outlets.
  • Yesterday, Delaware finally made the move to offer legal sports betting apps and iGaming on computers and mobile devices.
  • The Delaware State Lottery is partnering with Rush Street Interactive to bring these offerings to Delaware’s online gamblers via the BetRivers Sportsbook brand.
  • The new online gambling will be offered in conjunction with the state’s three casinos.
