December 16, 2022– J&J Ventures Gaming, LLC, a licensed terminal operator in Illinois, is pleased to announce its acquisition of substantially all of the assets of CCFVG, Inc., d/b/a Best Gaming, a licensed terminal operator.  Best Gaming, owned by Carl Fenske, supplies top-of-the-line service to a number of video gaming locations in the Chicagoland area.

“Acquiring this route in the Chicagoland area allows J&J Gaming to further grow and strengthen our footprint in northern Illinois. Carl Fenske has an impressive track record in the Illinois video gaming industry.  J&J Gaming is excited to offer Best Gaming’s video gaming locations and their patrons the J&J Gaming experience,” said J&J Gaming CEO, Bob Willenborg.

“Best Gaming is confident that our video gaming locations will enjoy long-term success with an operator like J&J Gaming.  I am honored to have served these locations,” stated Carl Fenske, owner of Best Gaming.

The Illinois Video Gaming Act was enacted and approved by Illinois lawmakers in 2009 to help raise funds to repair schools and fix roads. State and municipalities share in the revenue generated from video gaming terminals placed in locations licensed by the Illinois Gaming Board. J&J Gaming was one of the first terminal operators to be licensed by the Illinois Gaming Board in January 2012 and went ‘live’ with gaming operations in October 2012.

J&J Ventures Gaming and J&J Ventures Amusements are headquartered in Effingham, Illinois, 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 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! J&J Amusements is a leading operator of non-gaming devices like dart machines, pool tables, jukeboxes, ATMs, and other amusement devices.  To learn more about J&J Gaming and J&J Amusements, click here.
