Catawba Two Kings Now Offers Live Dealer Games

The temporary Catawba Two Kings Casino is now offering live dealer games.

While construction continues on the permanent $700 million facility, table games on the temporary gaming floor, as of June 17, now include live dealer options.

The casino, a short drive from Charlotte in Kings Mountain, features 12 table games with live dealers. They include baccarat, blackjack, craps, and roulette. There are also several live dealer poker tables.

Tribe expects to open permanent casino in 2026

While North Carolina does not allow online casinos, sweeps cash casinos can be played online. They use virtual dollars, which can sometimes be redeemed for cash.

Catawba Two Kings Casino, owned and operated by the Catawba Indian Nation, boasts more than 1,000 slot machines at its temporary casino near the site of its permanent casino. The permanent casino is expected to open in early 2026.

Catawba Nation Chief Brian Harris recently told that the tribe will continue to expand gaming at its temporary facility.

“While we are thrilled that construction is underway on our major casino resort, we are continuing to invest in our current gaming facility to broadly widen its appeal to residents and visitors to the greater Charlotte area and South Carolina.”

Harris expects live dealer table games “to be very popular and give people who have not been to the casino a great reason to visit.”

Catawba is a close option for South Carolina and Atlanta gamblers

Catawba Two Kings hopes to become one of the premier casinos in North Carolina, with a hotel offering hundreds of rooms. Because of its location near South Carolina and Atlanta, the casino expects to attract a lot of out-of-state visitors.

The temporary site in Kings Mountain opened on July 1, 2021, with approximately 500 slot machines. It immediately became the largest gaming floor space near Charlotte.

Two other casinos in the Tar Heel State – Harrah’s Cherokee and Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River – also offer live dealer games. Both of those casinos are located in the western portion of the state.
