After closing its poker room several months back, Silverton Casino Hotel might be back in the poker business!
Silverton execs think a poker room adjacent to the new Cantor Sports Book will be the perfect complement. The area, about 1,200 square feet, could accomodate five poker tables, and is conveniently located next to the parking garage for easy access.
On the Strip, the Mirage poker room is one of the oldest continuously operating poker rooms in the city. Recently renovated, they now offer a spacious 20 table setting with many amenities and games for all players.
The room is centrally located directly across from the main cashier’s cage on the casino floor with close proximity to the restrooms, smoking areas, and food outlets for the player’s comfort. A small player lounge is available for players to sit and relax while waiting for their game. The Mirage race and sports book is directly adjacent to the poker room for easy viewing and betting as well.
The current tournament schedule is as follows:
Daily Poker Tournaments:
11 a.m. and 7 p.m.: N Limit Texas Hold’em Tournaments;

The Mirage poker room’s complimentary cocktail service offers most call drinks and frozen beverages, as well as sodas, coffee, fruit juices and energy drinks. Tableside food delivery is also available 24 hours a day and players can use their earned comps to pay for poker room dining.
Players earn $1 an hour comps on their MGM M Life card. The accumulated comps can be used for poker room dining as well as nearly every full service food establishment within the Mirage resort.
Mirage poker offers free poker lessons anytime a guest, or group of guests, would like to sit down and learn how to play poker. They teach all aspects of how the “Game is Played in a Casino Environment,” including tips on “How to Play” the game. Inquire inside the poker room to become part of the action.
May the “nuts” be with you!
