Pennsylvania Truck Stop Gaming: What to Expect

Pennsylvania lawmakers have approved a law allowing video gambling on slot machine terminals in truck stops throughout the state of Pennsylvania. 

Accel is an industry leader of truck stop gaming in Illinois, servicing the top truck stop locations, and we’re excited to get rolling in a new market. In Illinois, on average, truck stops outperform all other gaming establishments by 134%.

Applications for establishments are now being accepted.

Regulations

We rely heavily on our compliance team to help guide our partners through the regulations and requirements for adding slots to their establishments. 
 
Accel was one of the first Terminal Operators (slot machine providers) to be licensed in Illinois. We have experience navigating the initial landscape of a gaming market, and we're ready to set ourselves up for success in Pennsylvania.
 

Qualifications

There are specific qualifications for truck stops who wish to apply for a gaming license. These qualifications are related to diesel fuel and space/acreage. If you sell diesel fuel, we recommend investigating if your truck stop could be eligible. 
 

Getting Your License

If you do qualify for a truck stop gaming license, we can help guide you through the process of applying and getting started with your slots. We know a lot of questions come up as you're getting started, and we're here to answer them! Don't just take our word for it though - check out these testimonials from our current partners. 
 

Revenue

A cost share of revenue will be mandated by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board between the truck stop gaming establishment, the Terminal Operator/gaming provider, and the state. The breakdown is as follows:
  • 15% to the truck stop establishment
  • 42% to the Commonwealth
  • 10% to the municipalities that host video gaming establishments
  • Remainder to the Terminal Operator

Your truck stop could be eligible to earn $150,000 or more per year by adding slot machines, also called video gaming terminals (VGTs). Slot machines can not only add a new revenue stream, but increase your foot traffic and customer loyalty. It requires no additional staff and minimal resources to get started. Here are the six requirements a truck stop must meet to be eligible to apply to add video gaming to their businesses:

  • Must be located on at least 3 contiguous acres of property not owned by the Pennsylvania Turnpike
  • Must be able to accommodate at least 20 parking spaces for commercial motor vehicles
  • Must be a licensed PA Lottery Sales Agent
  • Must be equipped with a convenience store
