Mirage Las Vegas Review


Developed by Steve Wynn and opening its doors in 1989, The Mirage was one of the Las Vegas Strip’s early modern mega resorts. It is now an MGM Resorts Inc / MLife property, is home to more than 3,000 rooms, world-class restaurants and an exciting gaming experience.

In its early days, The Mirage hosted some of the highest stakes poker games in the world. The likes of Doyle Brunson, Chip Reese and Danny Robison would corral the action where hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars would exchange hands.

Today, one can enjoy the classic Polynesian-themed resort on a low-roller budget, with a chance to earn rooms, meals and entertainment tickets for free from a mobile device.

New school gamble and free-to-play

Far away from Las Vegas, yet miss the action? Well, there’s no need to hit the road or even check the bank account.

Online slots

With Pop! Slots  an app that can be downloaded from the App Store or Google Play store, those of legal gambling age can play some of their favorite slots for free and earn real prizes such as free rooms, meals, show tickets and more.

Try the Mirage virtual slot, an instant safari just as fun as its namesake. The fan favorite Free Spin bonus is available too. Just hit three Free Spin symbols and choose an amazing bonus round for the entire row.

The MGM Resorts partnership continues by offering Konami slots (a staple in Las Vegas) via a partnership with Play Studios. You can access the Konami Slots app from either the App Store or Google Play, bringing the casino experience right to one’s smartphone for free.

Explore featured slot titles like Wonder Rose, Magnifying Magic, and Dragon’s Law. Full of extra wilds and bonus rounds, Konami slots will satisfy those gaming desires in between trips to the Mirage.

Around the world there are hundreds of millions of Facebook users; most of them have had an experience with one or more games on Facebook over the years. The casino industry splashed on the digital / mobile gaming scene to attract millennials and baby boomers alike.

With myVegas Slots, a Facebook account or smartphone is all one needs to enjoy authentic casino action on the go. Try to hit the dragon bonus, earn free spins, or hit huge multipliers by playing Dragon’s Wealth. The familiarity of the classic 3×5 slot game Goldie Goose might be more fitting for those less adventurous users’ first spins.  Spin enough, and you can activate a feature to add extra winnings to the unique egg symbols!

Can you play casino games online too ? MyVegas provides users with the Vegas blackjack experience right in their palms. The experience is an expansive one, offering all of Mirage’s popular blackjack variations in addition to Progressive Deck, featuring an optional side bet that gives players a chance to win an accumulating progressive jackpot.
