MGM Grand Details
As one of the largest poker rooms on the south side of the Las Vegas Strip, the MGM Grand enjoys more player traffic than many of its nearest competitors. Indeed, this is quite a fitting status given the reputation of the MGM Grand Hotel, which is one of the top five hotels by number of rooms in the world. The poker room is bright and smoke-free at all times, allowing you to stay alert and keep your mind going deep into those long sessions.
The MGM Grand poker action gives a solid variety, including some games that are hard to find anywhere else. Dealer’s Choice is particularly popular, likewise mixed games, split-pot games and the usual classics. The stakes are respectable, although games are typically catered toward hotel residents who drift across from the thousands of hotel rooms of the resort..
The MGM Grand Poker Room offers several promotions to its players. There is a cash giveaway football promo during the NFL season on Sunday and Monday nights. A progressive High Hand of the Hour rewards players for hitting quads or better during the right hour. Drawings are held several times away to give away cash of amounts varying from $100 to $3000.
As with other MGM-branded casinos, players sign in and accumulate comps on their M Life cards. These cards accumulate comp dollars at a rate of $1 for every hour played. Drinks are free to players. Players can also rapidly progress to a loyalty level that guarantees a discounted nightly hotel room rate for both short-term and longer stays.
