The gaming operator has selected an affiliate of Penn National to operate VGTs in Pennsylvania.

US.- Rutter’s has announced on Monday that it has picked Marquee by Penn, an affiliate of Penn National Gaming as its Terminal Operator for Video Gaming Terminals (VGTs) in Pennsylvania.

The company revealed that twenty Rutter’s establishments in the state are expected to initially qualify to host VGTs. A gaming expansion signed into law by Governor Wolf in 2017 established that facilities that qualify are eligible to host up to five VGTs in their stores.

Penn National has received a conditional licence from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) to act as a Terminal Operator and is expecting to qualify to operate VGTs at the Rutter’s locations, subject to final regulatory approval from the local gaming regulator.

“Rutter’s is a proud, Pennsylvania-based company with a storied history in the Commonwealth and a proven commitment to the communities in which we serve,” said Scott Hartman, President & CEO of Rutter’s. “Penn National shares these same attributes, and we look forward to partnering with them to provide our customers the opportunity to enjoy playing VGTs at a number of our locations throughout Pennsylvania.”

“We look forward to working with Rutter’s to introduce VGT gaming in the Commonwealth,” said John Finamore, Senior Vice President of Regional Operations for Penn National Gaming.
