J&J Gaming extends services to Pennsylvania.
December 2, 2021 – J&J Ventures Gaming of Pennsylvania, LLC, a licensed terminal operator in Pennsylvania and an affiliate of Illinois-based J&J Ventures Gaming, LLC, is pleased to announce its acquisition of substantially all of the assets of Second State Gaming, LLC. Second State Gaming, a licensed terminal operator in Pennsylvania and a sister company of B&B Amusement of Illinois, LLC, focuses exclusively on providing terminal operator services to truck stops owned and operated by some of the leading suppliers of fuel and largest travel center operators in the country. Second State Gaming, which is majority-owned by Gary Brewer and located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, excels in 24/7 service, game room customization and gaming selection, game tracking, and state-of-the-art security across its route of truck stops licensed by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. With this purchase, J&J Gaming will further expand service into Pennsylvania and will now serve nearly 2,300 licensed video gaming locations in Illinois and Pennsylvania.
“With the expansion into Pennsylvania with Second State Gaming, we are bringing more opportunities to the video gaming industry. Because of the Brewer family and their unique business model, Second State Gaming has been highly successful with creating top performing Truck Stop locations. J&J is now able to bring more to the Truck Stop experience by combining our reporting and marketing expertise with Second State Gaming’s customization capabilities and remote network management,” says Bob Willenborg, CEO of J&J Gaming. “We are proud to welcome Second State customers and employees to J&J and are looking forward to further expanding in Pennsylvania!”
“Second State Gaming, LLC has been a leader in the Pennsylvania video gaming market since its inception. With the support of our sister company B&B Amusement of Illinois, LLC, we have expanded our proven service model into the Pennsylvania truck stop market. By integrating into J&J, we can ensure that our Pennsylvania gaming locations will continue to see success, patron loyalty, increased revenue, and growth through the valued expertise from the J&J Team,” stated Owner, Gary Brewer.
Pennsylvania lawmakers expanded the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act in 2017 to include video gaming in truck stop establishments to bring in additional revenue, employment opportunities, and tax relief. J&J Ventures Gaming of Pennsylvania and Second State Gaming were two of the first terminal operators to receive conditional video gaming terminal operator licenses from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board in 2018, as well as to receive final approval as video gaming terminal operators in 2019.
J&J Ventures Gaming of Pennsylvania is located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, while J&J Ventures Gaming, LLC and J&J Ventures Amusements, LLC operate out of Effingham, IL where their predecessor, J&J Ventures, Inc., began route operations in 1929. Today, J&J Gaming is one of the largest terminal operators in Illinois where it provides unparalleled service to its partner locations and is an expert in gaming management and route operations in the distributed gaming industry.
