Trident Casino Slots at Bournemouth
Plans are being put forward for a casino gaming center to fill the empty spaces in Poole’s Dolphin Shopping Center. J Holland and Sons Ltd, doing business as Trident Gaming, has applied to open a slot machine gaming center for adults in two empty commercial units facing Poole Bus Station, to complement an existing site in Bournemouth. The proposed business, called Trident Casino Slots, would cater to the public aged 18 and over and would offer a mix of gaming machines.
The machines would not provide cash prizes, but tickets can be redeemed for monetary prizes. If there aren’t any such prizes then there’s no need to keep cash at the venue and this reduces the risk of crime, according to the applicant. So, players can enjoy games for the thrill of it, but if they need to cash in on their prizes they can go that way as well.
All the Details
In its application, Pure Town Planning stated that the proposed adult gaming center would take up two vacant locations in an area that has been struggling to fill the spots and that the proposed center would contribute to the vitality of the Dolphin Center and the bus station area, offering a wider range of services and facilities for the public.
The venture would create four full-time and two part-time jobs and the site would need to be staffed by at least three people during opening hours. J Holland & Sons own a chain of similar centers throughout the UK, like the one in Bournemouth’s Old Christchurch Road.
The planners also noted that J Holland & Sons has an established business structure that ensures the site will be managed properly and the refurbishment will transform the place. The proposed use would bring a vacant unit in a town center location back into use, providing significant public benefits such as employment, increased foot traffic, and a place for visitors and locals when the weather gets all rainy.
Poole High Street is already home to an established slot machine gaming center, Admiral, which replaced Quicksilver. The application is available on BCP Council’s planning portal and no objections have been raised yet.
The new project will help liven up the community as it will give it a flux of new jobs when it comes to making the project happen. Once the project is done then the community will need to fill the job positions of the facilities that are needed to keep the project in operation.
