Internet Vikings Expands into Latin America with New Data Center





Internet Vikings, the leading licensed hosting provider, announces its entry into Latin America with a new data center. Signaling a beneficial move forward for the company, it continues to broaden its service offerings in response to the growing licensed iGaming and online sports betting sector in the region.

Seeing the potential in the regulated Latin America’s iGaming and Sports Betting market, Rickard Vikström, Founder and CEO of Internet Vikings, led the company’s efforts to establish a presence in the continent. “Entering into Latin America was not only a strategic decision for growth but also a commitment to provide local regulated operators with access to VMware cloud hosting, compliant with instant scaling on-demand,” Vikström stated.

New regulations and a steadily growing gambling industry position Latin America prominently within the global iGaming arena. Internet Vikings is ready to leverage these opportunities by offering reliable and secure hosting services that enable operators to develop in this competitive environment.

Kristoffer Ottosson, COO of Internet Vikings, emphasized the company’s obligation to support its clients’ efforts in new territories. “Our launch into Latin America underscores our dedication to providing the industry with a heightened level of cybersecurity, and infrastructure to support our clients effectively”, Ottosson remarked. “We are confident that our partnership with local stakeholders, combined with our VMware cloud hosting services, will enable us to deliver value to current and potential operators in the area.”


As Internet Vikings extends its global presence, with the introduction of tailored VMware cloud hosting services in Latin America, its focus remains on providing innovative solutions that fuel growth and improve user experiences to meet the specific needs of the market.

At the core of its business model, Internet Vikings assist companies expanding into new territories to start small and scale their infrastructure as their business grows. This perfectly aligns with Casinogate’s vision for a measured and successful launch in Latin America.

“Our tailored approach enables clients to invest in what they need now while providing the assurance of scalability as their operations widen into Latin America or elsewhere. This partnership allows Casinogate to focus on what they do best – creating exceptional games – while we handle the critical infrastructure,” shares Rickard Vikström, CEO and Founder of Internet Vikings.

One of Internet Vikings’ most distinguishing features is its commitment to personalized service. André Castro, Co-Founder and CEO of Casinogate, adds: “Their key account manager worked closely with us to understand our specific needs for the Latin American market. They developed a solution that scales perfectly with our anticipated goals, ensuring a smooth transition.”


​From a technical standpoint, Internet Vikings leverages VMware, renowned for its user-friendly interface and reliability. This has translated into enhanced performance for Casinogate, with minimal latency experienced on their platform.

“Internet Vikings’ expertise in hosting and focus on strong partnerships make them an essential asset. We’re assured in delivering premium gaming experiences to our Latin American audience. Their professionalism, particularly during the initial VMware setup, instilled great confidence in us,” André Castro concludes.

The partnership between Casinogate and Internet Vikings exemplifies how industry leaders can leverage innovation and collaboration to achieve mutual success.

Internet Vikings, a leading provider of in-state hosting solutions for the iGaming and online sports betting sector, announces that they have achieved VMware Premier Partner status, further enhancing their cloud hosting services in the United States.

On December 11, 2023, Broadcom gave notice of the discontinuation of perpetual licenses and SaaS, shifting towards a subscription-based model for VMware software offerings and introducing improved services for VMware Cloud Foundation and VMware vSphere Foundation. This licensing change will require customers across many sectors, including iGaming and sports betting, to plan for a transition to this new model.

Acknowledging businesses will require support in managing this transition, this status enables Internet Vikings to assist clients through this shift, with a specific focus on implementing efficient strategies tailored to their needs. Internet Vikings, the Swedish based hosting provider is glad to have been selected as a VMware Premier Partner and is well equipped to offer these services to both their European customers and across the U.S. Internet Vikings will also extend a white label solution to partners who don’t have direct access to VCSP licensing options through Broadcom, offering broad-based support and accessibility.

Kristoffer Ottosson, COO at Internet Vikings, states: “VMware’s shift to subscription licensing impacts the digital infrastructure within the iGaming and sports betting industry. As an invited VMware Premier Partner, we’re prepared to help our clients adapt, providing them with access to reliable and scalable solutions.”


“Together with over 16 years experience and the benefits of the Premier Partner Program, Internet Vikings remains a reliable, long-term partner that stays ahead of the licensed U.S. iGaming and sports betting industry changes,” Rickard Vikström, CEO and Founder adds.
