LITTLE RIVER, SC (WMBF) - The Big M Casino I will join Little River's year-round Big M Casino II in July.

According casino officials, the Big M Casino I is based out of Fort Myers Beach, Florida. The casino's operations in Little River will begin on July 2. The seasonal move is due to the purchase of the Sun Cruz Casino property. Officials say the casinos offer Las Vegas-style gaming aboard a luxury yacht. 

Officials say Little River's casino property will continue to operate on a year-round basis, but The Big M Casino I will travel to handle additional summer business from Myrtle Beach, and surrounding areas.

In addition to the casino ship traveling to SC for the summer, there will be a job fair held on June 8 from 11 a.m to 2 p.m. at 4495 Mineola Avenue in Little River. Officials say there will be on-site interviews, hiring, and processing during the fair.

When the Myrtle Beach season ends, the Big M Casino I will return to Florida.
