KINGS MOUNTAIN, N.C. (QUEEN CITY NEWS) — Catawba Nation will soon see 12 new additions to its Catawba Two Kings Casino this summer, a move being billed as having a large economic impact. 

The casino outside Kings Mountain will add 12 live table games at the location 35 minutes from uptown Charlotte. The table games will be craps, roulette, mini baccarat, blackjack, Mississippi stud poker and three-card poker. 

“This is just one way we are setting up the needs of our customers and for our tribe to facilitate the needs of our customers,” explained Catawba Nation Chief Brian Harris. 

Harris spoke with Queen City News over the phone Wednesday from Washington D.C., where he is fighting for approval for a new casino. That topic was something he was tight-lipped about, only to say, “stay tuned.” 

The addition of the games will address a year-and-half long request from customers who’ve wanted to see these new avenues of entertainment introduced. 

“By adding live table games, we are giving our loyal patrons something many have asked for and also anticipate drawing Charlotte residents and visitors to the region who have not yet been to the casino,” Harris said. 

The casino will also introduce a free dealer school on March 25 in Kings Mountain which will help train potential hires on how to work these tables. 

The casino,which opened in the form of mobile units in 2021, currently operates with 280 employees, but Harris said he needs to fill roughly 160 positions to fill for these new tables. 

“We are in need of people to apply, for people to go to school. That way we can be fully staffed before we open the table games,” Harris explained. 

He also anticipates an increase in revenue and the ability to support more projects across the area, which best fits the Catawba Nation. 

The increase will also have positive impacts on the nation’s ability to fund its Catawba Foundation. The money here will go towards charities and other donation opportunities that can further the Catawba Nation’s agenda. 

Regulatory hurdles have slowed plans for a permanent casino and hotel, but Harris says they’re cleared many of those problems. 

Land is already purchased, and a construction timeline has not been set. 

However, Harris said the hope is to have the resort-style project up and running by early 2027.
