MGM Grand Hotel & Casino
MGM Grand Hotel & Casino Review
The biggest of the Las Vegas casinos, the MGM has a staggering amount of gaming space, which includes more than 3,500 slot machines and 165 different table games. Table minimums on blackjack, craps, and roulette mostly start at $15; on weekends nearly all jump to $25. The Strip entrance is slot heavy, and at night takes on a fun atmosphere, with videos and music blaring from monitors overhead. The casino bar Centrifuge, occupies the center of a giant rotunda room in the rear of the casino, with a poker room and a remodeled sports book nearby. The Mansion, the casino's high-roller area (with mostly baccarat), exists in separate wing with its own bar, kitchen, and entrance. You don't have to play to hang here; so long as you're respectful (and quiet), this casino-within-a-casino is home to some of the best whale-watching in Vegas.
