Four New PA Truck Stops Introduce VGTs

Four truck stops in Cumberland and Lebanon counties have become the latest locations in Pennsylvania to add video gaming terminals under the 2017 expansion law. The VGTs are operated by Second State Gaming.

Four truck stops in Pennsylvania’s Cumberland and Lebanon counties have introduced video gaming terminals under the state’s 2017 gaming expansion law. The terminals are operated by Second State Gaming, an authorized Pennsylvania VGT operator.

The terminals will be available at Love’s Travel Stops located at:

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

Second State Gaming will oversee, operate and maintain the terminals, the company said.

Pennsylvania’s law authorizes up to five VGTs at truck stops selling at least 50,000 gallons of fuel monthly, and meeting other stringent state requirements. Second State Gaming said its machines go through rigorous testing and undergo a validation process to ensure they meet compliance with national and state standards in order to be approved by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

“We’re thrilled to be able to provide truck stop owners in Pennsylvania with new state-approved gaming options,” said Jennifer Caruso, vice president of operations for Second State Gaming. “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.”
