The aptly-named Mirage creates an odd juxtaposition in the desert of Nevada with its tropical paradise-themed casino on The Strip. And just as MGM’s first big Las Vegas acquisition set the standards for casino design when completed in 1989, the gaming today is among the cream of the crop in Sin City.
Among the slot machines on the MGM Mirage game floor is a pair of exclusive progressive jackpot machines amid the penny slots, video slots, video poker and high-wager games. Plus, 79 more slots are available in the “High Limit” area.
The Mirage supplies a complete range of table games, with blackjack, craps, roulette, baccarat, Let It Ride, Pai Gow (both versions), three-card poker, Texas Hold 'Em Bonus, Casino War and Big Six to be played. And the poker room features scads of tournaments, bonuses and jackpots 24 hours a day.
In case you’re there to look around a bit, most notable are the full-on 20,000-gallon aquarium devoted to housing dolphins and the 100-foot high dome maintaining an actual indoor rainforest habitat.
