Third gam­ing ma­chine for Mill Street pub

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

A Ruther­glen pub has been granted per­mis­sion to in­stall an ex­tra gam­ing ma­chine.

The Mill­croft pub on Mill Street will add an ex­tra ma­chine to their public bar.

Bel­haven, who own the pub, were granted per­mis­sion at a Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang Li­cens­ing Board last Fri­day (Au­gust 22).

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the com­pany said they had ex­pe­ri­enced an in­crease in cus­tom in their public bar.

Re­spond­ing to a ques­tion from Coun­cil­lor Robert Brown, they said some cus­tomers had com­plained about having to wait on the sin­gle ma­chine dur­ing busy pe­ri­ods.

But they added: “This does not mean more gam­bling.”

The pub al­ready has a sec­ond gam­ing ma­chine which is in their lounge.

Lo­cal li­cens­ing laws al­low two ma­chines au­to­mat­i­cally, but the board de­cided to grant the al­ter­ation to the Mill­croft’s li­cence for the third ma­chine.
