With its distinctive green glass, the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino leaves a memorable impression before you even walk in its doors.
Inside the theme is reminiscent of the art deco of classic Hollywood. One of the most interesting features of the resort is the glass lion enclosure in the casino area where visitors can observe up to six lions.
A see through tunnel allows viewers a close up look at the big cats! But big cats aren't the only thing you will find in the casino, you are going to find loads of fun and entertainment. Opened in late 1993, the MGM has become a favorite among casino players worldwide.
The MGM Grand Casino contains nearly 172,000 square feet of gaming fun making their slogan “Maximum Vegas” seem like maybe more than just clever marketing. They are making a serious effort to live up to the hype.
They are successful in doing so by offering world class fun and friendly customer service.
Let's start with slots, after all they are the first thing you see when you walk into to any casino. Slots in every direction going as far as the eye can see.
Like most casinos, you can play “reel” type slots, or video reels, or video poker, and mult-game machines. You can play progressives or go for big jackpots. Players can choose from penny slots to $1000 slots.
There are thousands of machines to choose from! The MGM signature machines are worth looking at.
There are the popular Majestic Lions $1 progressive games which pay (are you ready for this?) over $750,000 every day! You can also try Reel Millions and Lion's Share for your chance to win $1,000,000!
It seems all the Las Vegas casinos have their high limit slots and The MGM Grand is no exception. The high limit area has its own private lounge, and bathrooms complete with “slot hosts” to provide personal service.
You can wager $5, $10, $25, or $100 denominations on their high limit progressives where you can win as much as $500,000.
Poker is one of the most popular card games in the world and The MGM Grand has clearly recognized this fact and has built an amazing poker room to accommodate those who already love the game or those who want to learn.
The 22 table non-smoking poker room is open 24 hours a day. Players can enjoy table side food and beverage service. In fact, you can even get table side massage service from a licensed massage therapist!
While the amenities are certainly nice, that's not why people go into the poker room. They go to the poker room to play cards, and the MGM Grand has lots of card games. You can play a variety of games including limit and no limit Texas Hold 'em, Seven Card Stud, or Omaha. There are tournaments every day of the week!
Of course the distinction of any casino is the table games. The MGM Grand offers them in grand casino fashion. Whether you want to play Black Jack, Baccarat, Roulette or Craps, you'll find plenty of tables ready to accommodate you.
You can also try your hand at Pai Gow, Pai Gow Poker, Casino War, Let it Ride, Three Card Poker, Crazy “4” Poker, and Texas Hold 'em Bonus Poker.
The MGM is a great destination for anyone looking for an enjoyable and exciting casino experience.
It is no surprise that the MGM Grand is a part of the MGM Mirage Players Club where you can accumulate points for playing. Not only can you earn and redeem points at the MGM but you an also use them at any of the participating casinos. For those who want a full Vegas experience, the MGM is a must-see.
