Behind the name
Catawba Two Kings Casino celebrates the Catawba Nation’s history and hopeful future in their ancestral lands in North Carolina. The Two Kings name pays tribute to the 18th century Catawba Chief King Hagler and the City of Kings Mountain.
A legacy of partnership
During the Revolutionary War, the Catawba fought alongside the colonists. The identity symbolizes the unique relationship the Catawba people have long had with fellow residents of the region – which will only continue to grow with this project.
What it means to the region
Catawba Two Kings Casino is expected to create as many as 2,600 permanent jobs and thousands of construction jobs for area residents – providing a welcome boost for the local economy.
The Catawba Nation today
The Catawba Nation is the only federally-recognized tribe in South Carolina. The Catawba Two Kings project will bring positive economic development and jobs to the 3,300 members of the Catawba Nation and Kings Mountain residents. The 700-acre Catawba Nation reservation is located on the banks of the Catawba River, which is only a 30-mile drive from Charlotte Douglas International Airport.
A pre-launch temporary gaming facility with 500 slot machines and limited amenities is scheduled to open in summer 2021. We look forward to seeing you on the gaming floor.
