MGM Grand Casino

It is no secret that MGM Grand is the largest on the Strip with close to 5,000 rooms. What’s interesting about this hotel is that the old Hollywood feel and theme draw a very unique crowd.  A casual mix of young people with families and older serious gambling types make up the general population at this hotel. The glitz and glamour of old Las Vegas is still shining bright in this larger than life casino and they offer so many games that almost anyone could have a fun time gambling here for a couple of hours.

They have all the usual table games at not-to-terrible prices. They offer hundreds of tables for blackjack, roulette, any kind of poker you could dream up, Caribbean Stud, Casino War, Big 6, craps, and tons more!. The casino is home to a world famous high-rollers salon which if you bet here most likely means you are staying at “The Mansion” which is a small Mediterranean style complex of mega-suites located on a secluded part of the property. The Mansion is truly a high-roller paradise and even has its own casino, restaurant, saloon, and anything else someone who’s filthy rich would want or expect. However, there is plenty of gaming for the non high-rollers among us as well. Minimums at most tables start at around $10 and go up on holidays and weekends. When it comes to slots, MGM has plenty. They start at pennies and can go up as high as $500. Some of the slots even link to a display board behind the check-in desk that shows different players competing with each other to win jackpots. They also offer almost any slot machine known to man in almost any increment you’d like to play it. Slot junkies are often lining the chairs at this casino at all hours of the day.

Another really busy and happening spot in this casino is the sports book. This sports book is notorious as being one of the busiest during big events like Kentucky Derby and Super Bowl Sunday. The book is huge with 36 big plasma screen TVs with 104 seats for sports fans and 50 seats for race fans. The sports book even offers sky-boxes that can be rented out for those wanting to watch the games in style. The Stage Deli is also located in the sports book for betters who want to fast.

When it comes to poker, the MGM excels at that as well. There are 22 tables and surprisingly almost all of them will be going an average weekend. The room is fancier than most with comfortable chairs and marble rims on the tables. The room is also a hip place to hang out and there are often young people and beginners playing for the first time. They offer Hold-em, Omaha, Stud, and mixed games.
