FORT MYERS BEACH, FL - (September 21, 2015) - For nearly 18 years, visitors and locals of Southwest Florida have watched the iconic attraction known as “The Big ‘M’ Casino” ship sail in and out of its port at Moss Marine on Fort Myers Beach. This Fall, the Big “M” Casino announces the ship will be leaving Fort Myers to permanently join its sister ship at the Myrtle Beach, SC port.

The Big “M” is a luxurious 168’ gaming yacht, and has proudly served as Southwest Florida’s only gambling cruise since November of 1997. The ship features popular games, such as Blackjack, Craps, Roulette, Let-It-Ride, 3-Card Poker, and a large variety of slots. Guests of the Big “M” were also invited to enjoy an all-you-can-eat buffet and occasional live music. The Big M Casino family owns two dinner casino cruise ships, which have been located in Florida and South Carolina. Both ships will now be permanently sailing from South Carolina’s Myrtle Beach port.

“The crew of The Big ‘M’ Casino has enjoyed the many years it has been docked at Moss Marine, Fort Myers Beach,” said a spokesperson for The Big “M” Casino. “We have many great memories and have made a lot of dear friends. However, it is time for The Big ‘M’ Casino ship to continue its journey. We wish all of you well, and encourage you to come and visit us in Myrtle Beach, SC.”

The decision was made to relocate the Big “M” due to the high demand in Myrtle Beach, SC, where the Big "M"’s sister ship has been sailing in Little River since May of 2008.
