Wilmington NC Day Trip Idea – The Little River Casino Across the South Carolina Boarder.
Residents of Wilmington and visitors to the area don’t have to travel all the way to Vegas to enjoy a top-notch gambling experience. If you’re looking to combine the thrill and luxury of the casino with the scenic beauty of the ocean, save on gas and hit up Little River SC’s unique casino cruises.
One Little River’s most popular and exciting floating casinos (called an “AquaSino”) is the SunCruz Casino. This 220 ft. long, 600 passenger luxury gambling vessel boasts a huge selection of authentic, Vegas-style games, such as Blackjack, Live Poker, Texas Hold ‘Em, exhilarating Craps, and sportsbook wagering, as well as exceptional guest amenities like full-course lunches and dinners, free drinks while gambling, and fabulous live entertainment. Of course, no casino lineup would be complete without slot machines, and SunCruz proudly offers some of the loosest slots in the Carolinas, featuring brand new Ticket-In, Ticket-Out machines, which offer more generous winnings than those of land-based casinos or traditional slot parlors. In addition to their extraordinary game and slot selection, SunCruz offers a wide array of thrilling events, tournaments, and special offers and group packages that are always changing and updating on a weekly and monthly basis.

Another solid option is the Big M Casino, the area’s newest aquasino, which dishes out some of the highest hand-paid jackpots in the state, averaging a whopping $250,000 a week. True to its name, Big M offers a big selection of games, not only traditional fare like Blackjack, Roulette, Let-It-Ride, and 3 Card Poker, but it also has more of the highly popular “Pot-O-Gold” machines than any competing casino cruise ship. In addition to its enormous selection of games, Big M also offers a variety of all-you-can-eat buffet specials, ranging from prime rib to Italian delights to seafood and more, as well as a number of lighter options for health-conscious patrons. As an added advantage, guests can sign up for free Player’s Club cards, which gives free points each and every time you play a slot machine. These points can be traded in for cash, which means the more you play the more potential you have to earn points, collect cash, or win big.
For players who want the Vegas experience in the comfort and natural paradise of the Carolina Coastline, Little River’s winning casino boats are a jackpot!
