Harrisburg-based VGT operator continues Pa. expansion with Geneva Truck Stop opening
Harrisburg, PA (1 July 2021) – Second State Gaming is pleased to announce the opening of a new video gaming terminal (VGT) gaming room in Crawford County.
The new Second State Gaming location opened today at the Geneva Truck Stop, located at 17458 Smock Drive in Cochranton.
“As we continue to expand our gaming offerings across Pennsylvania, we are thrilled to provide Crawford County with top-of-the-line and state-approved VGTs,” said Jennifer Caruso, Vice President of Operations for Second State Gaming. “Our growth and the expansion of VGTs stems from the success of partners like the Geneva Truck Stop.”
Second State Gaming will operate, maintain and service the VGTs at Geneva. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board approved the establishment license for this location in 2020.
“We have many truck drivers who spend the night here waiting to deliver and pick up loads. The VGT gaming room will give them a place to entertain themselves,” said Cindy Crock, Geneva Truck Stop manager. “Many residents enjoy this type of gaming, and we are excited to give them a new option to play locally.”
VGTs, which are very similar to the slot machines seen at a casino, are state-approved games that only accept cash and tickets from the games, no credit or debit cards, and winnings are paid through a redemption terminal. Second State Gaming’s VGTs go through rigorous testing and undergo a validation process to ensure they meet compliance with national and state standards approved by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
Licensed truck stop VGT locations in Pennsylvania can host up to five gaming machines in an approved video gaming area.
With the Geneva Truck Stop opening, Second State Gaming now operates five game room locations in Pennsylvania with seven others opening within the next few months.
