A national gambling chain has increased its presence in Preston city centre.


Admiral, which was situated at 4-5 Orchard Street, expanded into the neighbouring premises at number three in early September.

A market leading provider of slots and gaming entertainment in the UK, Admiral has over 230 venues nationwide.

The Orchard Street venue has a wide variety of casino and classic slot games and offers free refreshments to customers. It’s open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, except on Bank Holidays.

In the application submitted to Preston City Council in 2017, planning agents Turley said: “In operational terms, the use would comprise an adult entertainment facility, offering gaming on coin operated machines. The operators provide a modern, active and open glass frontage, which adds interest to the façade.

“It will bring a vacant city centre unit back into active use and create direct jobs once the premises becomes operational. Furthermore, the proposed use will attract expenditure within the city centre and contribute to the broader leisure economy of the city.”
