GPM’s skill gaming terminals were introduced in the summer of 2019 but were put on hold last year due to evolving legislation in electronic skill gaming. The gaming terminals are once again available for customers to enjoy during regular store hours.
To help ensure customer safety due to the COVID-19 pandemic, store associates will be wiping down machines after each player. Players must be 18 years or older to participate and are encouraged to game responsibly.
“Our gaming machines are a great example of how we’re enhancing GPM’s in-store experience,” said Michael Bloom, executive vice president and chief marketing and merchandising officer at GPM Investments “Now, visitors who stop at our stores not only have the option to take a break from travel by grabbing their favorite snack or food item, but they can also put their skills to the test through our interactive gaming machines.”
GPM Investment is a wholly-owned subsidiary of ARKO Corp., a family of community brands based in Richmond, Va., that operates or supplies stores in 33 states and Washington, D.C. GPM has approximately 3,100 locations comprised of approximately 1,415 company-operated stores and 1,675 dealer sites to which it supplies fuel.
