Overview
When it opened in 1989, Mirage was a mecca for live poker action. Since that time, it's faded into relative mediocrity, but is still a pretty decent place to play cards. They have 19 tables and place a pretty large emphasis on jackpot hands awarding even four-of-a-kind cash prizes. Of course, extra rake is taken from the games to supplement the jackpot pool. Their staff is noteworthy for being really helpful.

Game Availability
The game offerings here are pretty limited. It's pretty much all $1/$2 no-limit with a $100/$300 min/max buy-in and $3/$6 limit hold'em. They have the space to spread more action, so during peak times of the year like the WSOP, you're likely to find a wider range of options here.

Tournaments
They run two daily tournaments, one at 11:00 am and one at 7:00 pm. The former is a $60 buy-in, the latter an $80 buy-in. On Saturdays, the buy-ins for these events jump up to $110. As is typical of small buy-in daily tournaments in Las Vegas, the vig in these events is pretty brutal; $15 of the $60 buy-in is kept by the house as an entry fee.

Comfort
This is a comfortable poker room. It's usually not very crowded, the chairs are very comfortable, and the cocktail service is speedy. It's a fine place to play poker if you're looking for a $1/$2 no-limit game.

Staff
Mirage has an exceptionally friendly staff. It is managed by the former manager of the T.I. poker room who helped revive that room by making it known for being a friendly place to play. You're made to feel right at home in this poker room which was once literally the best spot in the world to play poker.

Comps
The standard $1 an hour is given to players on their MGM Resorts International M Life Card. This money can be redeemed for food at restaurants throughout the property.
