Video gaming terminals (VGTs) are still quite popular in the Keystone State. Not only are they considered to be valuable revenue streams for gaming operators in the state but they are also essentially a fan-favorite of enjoying some entertainment at Pa. truck stops.

The most recent development in the state was the launch of a total of four video gaming terminals at Love’s Travel Stops. These are located in the following areas:

  • 440 W. 3rd St., Mifflinville in Columbia County
  • 1165 Harrisburg Pike, Carlisle in Cumberland County
  • 3700 Mountain Road, Hamburg in Berks County
  • 22 Old Forge Road, Jonestown in Lebanon County

Already customers are able to enjoy some gaming action at the aforementioned locations. Now, they will have a total of 33 locations where they will be able to get in on some fun and exciting VGT action.

The Operator

Second State Gaming, a renowned brand in the space, will be overseeing, operating, and maintaining the new video game terminals. The company has built up quite a reputation since it became an authorized video gaming terminal operator in the state. That said, their stellar background will certainly go a long way in defining the quality of the VGT experience in Pennsylvania.

“We’re thrilled to be able to provide truck stop owners in Pennsylvania with new state-approved gaming options. VGTs will allow these Love’s locations in Carlisle, Jonestown, Hamburg, and Mifflinville to expand their offerings, grow their foot traffic, and increase revenues. We look forward to serving gaming patrons and helping these locations succeed.”

Jennifer Caruso, Vice President of Operations for Second State Gaming.

The Swatara Township-based VGT operator has assured all its customers that their machines have all gone through rigorous testing and a thorough validation process to ensure that they are all in compliance with national standards.

 More on Video Gaming Terminals

Video Gaming Terminals have recently come under the jurisdiction of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB). These machines operate in a similar manner to slot machines with the most notable differences being that they only accept cash.

Late last year, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board posted the first revenue report for the state’s video gaming terminals and that ushered in a new revenue stream. Since then, the space has continued to grow immensely and has been performing reasonably well even though some significant drops were recorded due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Still, the VGT industry has begun to pick up the pace and it will not be surprising to see more entries into the sector in the near future.
