The Mirage Hotel, Resort & Casino has a generously sized poker venue in its casino. The Mirage is part of the MGM Resorts family, so players must register for an M Life Card to track comps and register for tournaments. The poker room offers nearly 20 tables of continuous action, which tends be dominated by hold’em lovers. Limit and no-limit cash games run constantly, plus regular tournaments and sit-and-gos when demand arises. Pot-limit Omaha and other games have been known to start occasionally, as well.
Although the Mirage’s poker room is not split from the rest of the casino floor by a full wall, Perspex panels and railings make it clear that this is a purpose-built area. With a high ceiling and good light sources all around the room, this is certainly a very airy venue for long sessions. The bright, swirly yellow, blue, and red patterns of the carpet definitely add to this effect. The beige and brown poker tables are set up around the room with basic padded swivel chairs for players.
Players earn comps at The Mirage at the rate of $2 for every hour played. As this is above the basement rate of $1 found in many Las Vegas casinos, players are able to earn enough for tableside food delivery, massages, and other services quite quickly. With free soft drink and cocktail service also provided, there is very little expense incurred apart from the poker play itself. The Mirage poker room hosts the full array of promotions, which include familiar favorites such as high-hand payouts, aces-cracked and a progressive bad-beat jackpots. The BBJ pays out to players who lose with aces-full or better, which, again, is notable for its generosity.
