The Beau Rivage has comfortably the biggest poker room in Biloxi, with more than double the number of tables of its nearest competitor. This venue is a refreshing change for players who want to escape the more branded offerings of the nearby Golden Nugget, Hard Rock, and Imperial Palace. Although the Beau Rivage itself is an MGM-owned entity, it certainly has its own character. The casino has won numerous awards for its customer service and serves as the heart of Biloxi’s nightlife. Legendary Beau Rivage nightclubs include the Eight75 and Coast. Since being severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina, the Beau Rivage has been redesigned to withstand punishment from the elements more effectively.
Focusing on the Beau Rivage poker room, the venue hosts the Biloxi’s most popular major tournaments. Mississippi’s poker savants keep their calendars free for the Gulf Coast Poker Championship, Southern Poker Championship, and Spring Break Poker Championship. These tournaments justify their lofty names, with exceptional structures stretching to 60 and 70 minutes per blind level. Daily tournaments also run at the Beau Rivage with similarly generous blind gaps. Cash games are divided into two areas, with the Beau Rivage spreading a healthy assortment of no-limit hold’em, seven-card stud, and Omaha eight-or-better. The Beau Rivage poker room operates a friendly no-smoking policy to ensure that players enjoy a clean and healthy environment within these spacious high ceilings.
Like other MGM casinos, visitors to the Beau Rivage can take advantage of the M Life rewards scheme. Along with the usual benefits of such a comp scheme (room discounts, free food offers, premium drinks, etc.), one can also enjoy special entertainment, including opportunities to claim cinema tickets, spa days, and show experiences.
