In Partnership with the Southern Weekend

The Big “M” Casino, it’s the only casino in South Carolina and it’s on a yacht

Play table games and slot machines on the Big "M" Casino! You can take in views from the South Carolina coastline, too.

South Carolina’s only casino, the Big “M” Casino, offers two luxury yachts.  We couldn’t wait to climb on board and try our hand at a game of Blackjack.  We also got some tips from one of their dealers.  Both yachts offer plenty of table games and slot machines.  It feels like you’ve stepped into a Vegas casino.  Ship 1 has 178 slot machines, while Ship 2 has 248.

In addition to playing, there is an optional all-you-can-eat-buffet on-board, as well as two cash bars.  On select cruises, you can enjoy live entertainment.  During the ride out to the open waters, you’ll be able to take in the amazing views of the coastline.  With a large open deck on the third floor, you can take advantage of inside seating, or sit outside and watch the waves.

The table games include Let it Ride, Blackjack 21, Craps, Roulette, and 3 card poker.  Dealers are very experienced and friendly and are happy to help should you have any questions.
