Default Are their any casinos near Charlotte?

I live in NJ. While I really am not a fan of Atlantic City (love Vegas). I do like that if I want to go gambling its an hour and a half ride. Are their any casinos within a few hours of Charlotte.

Closest one is in the Cherokee mountains - although they have no live table games - only slots and video blackjack

i thought this has changed since Harrah's took over. pretty sure they have a live poker room, they just use the electronic table tops and not live dealers. some casinos i know in Detroit have the same set up, pretty nice actually, games go much faster

Cherokee doesn't serve alcohol. No smoking either. In case anyone cares.

cherokee does have a small poker room, and yes, it's all video. you have a small screen in front of each player, and a big one in the middle of the poker table. there are no chips and no real cards, it's all video. it's, um, "ok". I would do the poker again, but not the video black jack, hated it. when I was there over this summer, they were voting on whether to serve alcohol or not. I haven't heard what the final decision was. not sure why you don't like AC, but I really don't see making another trip out to cherokee, unless I had absolutely nothing else to do.

so, uh, who's driving?

Just a warning, don't expect the trip up I-77 into WVa to be a quick one in the winter. I used to go skiing at Winterplace a lot which is just across the Va-WVa border, and that road subject to a lot of snow and ice between Dec and March. They do a good job keeping it clear, but I have been down it many times when there was only one lane open. That's gonna be a 5-6 hour drive to Cross Lanes.

If it was me, I would just head to Myrtle Beach ~3-4 hours and then get on a gambling boat. Once they get a few miles off-shore outside of SC jurisdiction and laws, the casino opens.
