Myrtle Beach casinos are considerably different than those you will find in places such as Las Vegas or Reno. The main reason for this is because the ones in Myrtle Beach are floating. The way to gamble in South Carolina is on Myrtle Beach casino boats. In fact, the only place where you can legally gamble on casino boats is on the Atlantic outside of Myrtle Beach. For groups of friends traveling to Myrtle Beach and looking for a diversion or complement to the clubs and nightlife along the Grand Strand, a night out on a Myrtle Beach gambling cruise can be an ideal option. There are so many things to do in Myrtle Beach with its over 250 golf courses, some 60 miles of pristine, white beaches, and countless restaurants, clubs, bars, and shops, that you may not even have time to enjoy the Myrtle Beach casino boats. If you enjoy gambling and want to do so onboard a boat where you can enjoy free well drinks and fine dining food, however, you must make a point to check this experience out.
The Big M Casino is one of the main casino boats that has been taking people out on the water for gambling for years. San Cruz is another such provider. These are the two largest even though there are several other smaller companies up and down the beach. There are many miles of beaches in this area, and with the massive influx of tourists each and every year, there is strong demand for entertainment of all kinds. This demand includes Myrtle Beach casinos, in every part of the city and the surrounding areas. Places that they depart from include Little River, North Myrtle, and central Myrtle Beach.
A Myrtle Beach gambling cruise involves much more than just hopping on a boat and pulling the handle on a couple of slot machines. Much to the contrary, these elegant and spacious ships offer luxurious amenities like all you can eat buffets, free cocktails, complimentary shuttle service from your hotel, and live music and entertainment. You will enjoy a full range of casino games including black jack, roulette, craps, poker, Texas Hold ‘Em, 3 Card Poker, and literally hundreds of slot machines.
Most Myrtle Beach casinos set sail twice daily for five-hour trips. You will sail along the Little River (a gorgeous trip) before arriving at your anchored position where the party begins. Two different departure times are convenient. This way, you can choose to spend the day on the beach or shopping and then enjoy a night of gambling and partying after the sun has set. For those who are interested in getting back into town to see a show or enjoy one of the many fine restaurants in Myrtle Beach, you have the option of setting sail during the day. There always seems to be a Myrtle Beach gambling cruse leaving at a convenient time.
