The Pennsylvania video gaming market is expanding at an astronomical rate — and soon more Pennsylvania businesses may have the opportunity to get in on the action! As the state decides whether or not to expand Pennsylvania gaming into bars and taverns, there is still a way for your establishment to get ahead of the game by signing up with a Terminal Operator now!
Terminal Operators are officially licensed entities that own, service and maintain video gaming terminals (regulated slot machines) for placement in licensed video gaming establishments. Good Terminal Operators should provide more than just gaming machines, they should be a partner in every aspect of your business.
While Pennsylvania video gaming has yet to officially expand into bars and taverns, it can be extremely beneficial for interested locations to sign up with Terminal Operators as soon as possible. By getting ahead of the game, your Terminal Operator can begin collecting the necessary documentation and licenses for your eventual gaming application. By signing up with a Terminal Operator early, you can also optimize and fine-tune the placement of your potential gaming area.
As the Pennsylvania gaming market continues to expand, more and more Terminal Operators will begin to crop up in the market. As a business owner new to video gaming, what should you be looking for in the perfect Terminal Operator?
- How often will the Terminal Operator visit your location? Will you have a dedicated account manager to take care of your unique needs?
- What does their preventative maintenance program look like? How long does it take for a technician to come out and service a broken machine?
- How often will you receive your revenue statements?
This is the bare minimum of what you should look for in a Terminal Operator. If a potential Terminal Operator cannot answer these simple questions, you may be better off finding an alternative.
