The application from Chongie Entertainment Ltd has been approved by city planners this week and the company will be permitted to open on 16 Broadway.

The gaming centre, named Sui Generis, will open in the former Salvation Army charity shop unit. It will include attractions such as slot machines games and bingo and will open between 8am and midnight seven days a week.

Chongie Entertainment Limited is a new entrant into the UK adult gaming centre market and it has said that the centre will “allow activity within Peterborough city centre outside of normal daytime trading hours and will increase the vitality and viability of the centre along with the creation of eight new jobs.”
