The Big M Casino Yacht In Myrtle Beach

Just a short drive from Myrtle Beach and several NC cities, The Big M Casino is a creative way to get your gamble on in the South.  Sailing out of Little River, SC, the Big M gives you a short cruise out to international waters, at which time you can enjoy the slots and table games available and try to win big!

All aboard!

There’s probably 100+ slot machines of varying games and betting amounts, and table games include Blackjack, Craps, and Roulette.

There’s plenty of slot machine options at The Big M casino – all aboard!

While there’s actually two ships in the fleet, currently only Ship II (the newer one) is up and running.  During peak season from May – November, you’ll have a morning cruise or an evening cruise available six days a week.  The Big M usually doesn’t cruise on Monday.  The morning cruise runs from 11 AM – 4 PM, and the evening cruise goes from 6 PM – 11 PM.  In the offseason, you’ll still probably have cruises available six days a week, but the evening timeslot is only available on weekends.

It’s $20 to set sail and take your chances.  Or, you can pay $30 and get a meal included with your ticket.  That gets you an 8″ sub with chips and a soft drink.  There’s other meal options available, too.  Visit The Big M dining page for more info.  Don’t expect a big selection – they have to make room for all the games on the boat!  They used to have more food on a buffet, but that’s not an option right now.

Here’s the full address for the dock:

4491 Mineola Ave., Little River, SC 29566

Arrive early, because the ticket office and parking lot will close 5 minutes before each departure.

What’s Inside The Big M Casino?

Besides the aforementioned slots, there’s gonna be 8 blackjack tables open along with some roulette tables.  Blackjack tables range from $10 – $50 minimum bets.  Roulette tables have a $5 minimum.  There’s also a Let It Ride and a 3 Card Poker table, each with $10 minimum bets.  The boat can only fit so much, so unfortunately, you won’t find other table games like Pai Gow Poker or Baccarat on The Big M.
