PA Gaming Control Board Approves 2 Supplier Licenses

HARRISBURG: The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board today voted unanimously to approve licenses for two companies that filed applications to be suppliers of slot machines and associated equipment in the Commonwealth.

All licenses are subject to a series of conditions set by the Board to ensure that the requirements of the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act, and Board rules and regulations are met.

"Approving these licenses is another major step forward for gaming in Pennsylvania," said Tad Decker, chairman of the Board.

The Board today approved supplier licenses for the following companies:

    * Gaming Ventures LLC
    * Winner Security LLC

Under the Race Horse Development and Gaming Act, also known as Act 71 of 2004, the Board is responsible for licensing 14 gaming facilities across the state and ensuring the integrity of the acquisition and operation of slot machines and associated equipment. Pursuant to the Act, the Board has jurisdiction over every aspect of the authorization and operation of slot machines in the Commonwealth.
