Murphy Cherokee Casino in North Carolina has been approved for a $275 million expansion. The master plan was not made available to the public. It includes a set of different projects that are not named in the resolution passed by Tribal officials. Connecticut-based architecture firm JCJ Architecture has developed the concept design for the casino expansion and provided a cost estimate. Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River Casino opened in fall of 2015 with 50,000 square feet of casino space with 1,050 slot machines, 70 table games, and a food court-style dining area. In 2018, the tribe completed a expansion to add 41,00 square ft of entertainment space featuring bowling, arcade games and full-service restaurant.
The expansion of Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort in North Carolina is nearing completion. The master plan secured approval from the Tribal Council. It will include a new hotel tower, a restaurant, hotel lobby cafe, spa and indoor pool, expanded gaming space and additional parking. EBCI broke ground on the $250 million project at Harra's in the summer of 2018 and is set to unveil the new additions to its amenities this fall.
