Hundreds of new jobs are coming to North Carolina next summer.

That's when Harrah's Cherokee Valley River Casino and hotel plans to open its doors.

The $100 million dollar project to build the new casino is underway just outside of Murphy. The seven-story hotel will have more than 300 guest rooms and a 50,000 square foot gaming floor.

The new casino will be owned by the same company that owns Harrah's Cherokee Casino Resort, located about an hour away from the new casino site.
