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 was one 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 a video gaming terminal operator in 2019. 

J&J Ventures Gaming of Pennsylvania is located in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, while its affiliates J&J Ventures Gaming, LLC and J&J Ventures Amusements, LLC operate out of Effingham, IL where their predecessor began route operations in 1929.  Today, J&J Gaming is one of the largest terminal operators in Illinois where it provides unparalleled expertise in gaming management and route operations through its 24/7 service, detailed reporting, fast and flexible payouts, a full-service marketing team, and much more!
