Mirage Casino Review

The Mirage may be one of the older properties on the Strip, but it is still a favorite when it comes to gamblers. The tropical plant life and wildlife attract kids and adults alike at their indoor tropical garden. The casino at the Mirage is huge and completely surrounds the atrium making it almost impossible for anyone to avoid. The action inside the Mirage casino is just as hot as it was decades ago. So, when looking for a fun way to get out of the sun…try gambling in this tropical paradise.

The Mirage casino offers dozens of games for almost anyone that happens to stumble upon this oasis in the desert. They deal blackjack, Pai Gow, craps, roulette, 3-card, casino war, baccarat, and all the other games you could possibly think of. The games at the Mirage are comparable to what you’d expect to find on the Strip. Single deck blackjack has standard 6:5 odds and craps pays 3x4x5x, which is to be expected. The Mirage has so many slot machines that it would take a while just to see them all. They offer lots of penny slots all the way up to the $500 champagne slots. The Mirage is a mixed crowd, there are plenty of older people stuck on the penny slots but there also lots of young beginners playing roulette and similar easy-to-learn games. The cocktail waitresses keep the drinks flowing (this keeps the young people in their seats). They also serve pretty strong drinks which don’t seem to discriminate depending on how much you are betting like at many casinos.

There is also a decent sports book off the main casino. There are 29 TVs total. There also a dozen or so big screen TVs which are perfect for viewing big events. Unlike most race and sports books, this one doesn’t discriminate. They give equal attention to the race bettors and the sports bettors. The sports area is arranged in a comfortable lounge setting which suits event the high-rollers as well. This sports book also has a surprisingly low minimum bet for sports betting. The minimum wager is $2 for sports and $2 for racing compared to the standard $5 you find most places. This is a great place for beginning sports bettors to come and bet a few dollars and enjoy the game along with some free drinks.

Also, the Mirage offers a great poker room. There are about 30 tables total which is a pretty good size compared to most. There is also a high-limit area for the hotels preferred casino guests. The room is non-smoking and in a secluded corner of the casino so there is less noise and players can concentrate on the game. They deal more games in here than you may be used to finding in a poker room. They have traditional Hold-em, Omaha, Stud, and a few mixed games depending mostly on the crowd.
