Work begins to expand Catawba Two Kings Casino pre-launch facility
Updated: Dec 10, 2021
Expansion to accommodate an additional 500 gaming machines to open by year’s end, 2021
KINGS MOUNTAIN, N.C. (Oct. 1, 2021) – Work has begun to add an additional 500 gaming machines to the Catawba Two Kings Casino pre-launch facility in Kings Mountain that opened July 1.
Initial site work began in September on the expansion, which will be attached to the current facility and once again constructed using prefabricated modular structures. When the expansion is completed, which is expected by the end of 2021, the temporary casino will feature 1,000 gaming machines.
“With the overwhelming success of the Catawba Two Kings Casino’s pre-launch facility since opening, it makes sense to work as quickly as possible to provide additional gaming opportunities for our patrons across the Charlotte region,” said Mike Ulizio, president of the Catawba Nation Gaming Authority.
The Catawba Nation and its consultants – including hospitality and gaming company Delaware North, SOSHNY Architects and developer Skyboat Gaming – are simultaneously continuing planning and development work on the permanent casino resort project. The timing for construction of that project is also being determined.
The Catawba Two Kings Casino is practicing safety procedures and protocols to best protect guests and employees from COVID-19. All employees are required to wear a mask, and guests are encouraged to wear one as well. Disposable masks are available for guests when they enter the casino.
Updates on the expansion construction will be posted to the casino’s Facebook page.
About Catawba Two Kings Casino Resort
Catawba Two Kings Casino Resort is being developed by the Catawba Nation at a 17-acre site at 538 Kings Mountain Blvd. in Kings Mountain, N.C. The site is near Interstate 85 Exit 5 and about 35 miles west of Charlotte. A temporary “pre-launch” gaming facility opened July 1, 2021, with 500 gaming machines to provide an initial opportunity for patrons to game with limited food & beverage and other guest amenities. At full buildout, the casino resort project is expected to create thousands of permanent and construction jobs in the region. The Two Kings name celebrates the Catawba Nation’s history and hopeful future in their ancestral lands in North Carolina, paying tribute to the 18th century Catawba Chief King Hagler and the City of Kings Mountain.
