When river-runners of yesteryear wanted to gamble, they simply took bets on who could noodle the largest catfish or survive the longest without vitamin C. Partake in healthier river gambling with today's Groupon: for $15, you get admission to a casino cruise and an all-you-can-eat buffet, including port tax, aboard The Big "M" Casino in Little River (up to a $35 value).
The Big "M" Casino's 186-foot-long ship glides down a scenic coastal river, entertaining gamblers with Las Vegas–style games and filling rumbling bellies with all-you-can-eat buffets. A schedule of day and evening cruises, each lasting about five hours in length, gives risk-takers ample opportunity to turn a pocketful of change into infinity dollars. Pull the lever on more than 245 multithemed slot machines, test skills on tables of Let It Ride, craps, roulette, and three-card poker, or tempt Lady Luck on the Wheel of Fortune and Pot O' Gold machines after rubbing your pet leprechaun's nose. To quell angry appetites, choose between two all-you-can-eat buffets (a $10–$15 value), which include seafood, meat, fresh fruit, salads, dinner rolls, and more.
The Big "M" Casino serves complimentary drinks and mermaid repellent while players are gaming, with a cash bar open before and after gaming, up to 30 minutes prior to docking at Little River. Satellite TVs ensure avid sports fans don't miss any landlubbing action while aboard the vessel.
