Super excited to be headed back to Vegas next week for my first ever stay at The Mirage. Received a comped room as a MLife Member so anxious about using it (first time using a comped room).

My plan for the stay:

Arrive Tuesday late afternoon, gamble in The Mirage (craps, BJ, VP)
Wednesday - Morning poker tournament, hit the pool in the afternoon, a session or two of gambling at The Mirage (possibly lunch at In and Out), and then we are going downtown Wednesday night. Will eat at Nacho Daddy and gamble downtown, as well as listen to the bands on the stages
Thursday - Same as Wednesday during the day and then head to MB for the MJ ONE show. Probably hit NYNY after for some Guinness at Nine Fine Gentlemen
Friday - Hang at The Mirage and gamble, pool, etc until the red-eye back Friday night.

What kinds of things would the board like to know about the trip?

Any insider tips to The Mirage or surrounding area (gambling, food, etc)?

What the current selection of table games are and the status of 6/5 vs 3/2 blackjack.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Mirage is all 6/5 below $25 these days.

They used to have a couple of S17 $25 tables, but I haven't seen those tables the last couple of times I've checked.

Good Lord. The Strip was never all that welcoming to red chip players but, with the proliferation of 6/5 bj, casinos now spit in their faces and charge them to park for the privilege. Very sad.

I used to like the sports book at the Mirage. But, I was disappointed when I went in March. The sports book has jacked up the price to earn a drink ticket now. They were telling us you had to bet $500 at the sports book to earn one. They used to allow you for around $150 even last March. The book was a ghost town in March. So, we went to Caesars. The Mirage is a nice location though. The Chipotle, McDonalds, Panda Express, and Walgreens are all across the street and very close. They seemed to have $15 PGP tables as long is it wasn't the weekend. I do remember the BJ being 6/5 unless you were playing for at least green chips. I've stayed in the rooms before so the OP should like them. The pool is nice as well.

They have a "European" style pool called BARE. A report with pictures would be appreciated.

I didn't think I would like the aquarium at the Mirage as much as I did. They have quite a variety of fish, even though the sharks are heavily promoted.

Do they still have swim up blackjack? I always wonder how you are supposed to buy in at those tables. They don't mind soggy money?

I like telling my only mirage story. 2010 we go on honeymoon. They are in the middle of an big remodel. We get a nice suite for $120 a night because it was an remodeled room. However they finish the suite remodel before we get there so we get a brand new awesome suite.

Go to the pool all day and was checking out at 6am to drive to CA. We get back to the room around 7pm to get ready for the night and we come back to note on our door. Water will be shut off for 12 hours because they had to connect a new line or something. I was so mad. I couldn't believe that I got a shut off notice in a suite. Called down and they did not care at all. So we spent the next 26 hours smelling like chlorine and her hair was a mess. Next morning we had a hot air balloon ride and got pictures and her hair is terrible for a nice reminder. Did end up getting a free night.

Hope your water stays on.

Or at least asked for free entrance to the spa.

Indeed!

I thought the sharks were at Mandalay, and dolphins were at the Mirage.


Does the TI still have decent BJ? It might be worth the walk.
