Whether you are a novice player or a serious gambler, The Mirage has something for everyone.
Although traditionally the grandest of all table games, Baccarat is a simple game of chance. Players may sit in any of the 14 open seats at the table, as seating position does not affect the play in any manner. Those participating in the game may place a wager on either the bank or the player. Two hands, of two cards each, are dealt from the baccarat 'shoe'. Later, a third card may be required for either hand. The first hand represents those betting on the player, the other betting on the bank. The winning hand is the one which totals the closest to 9. Tens, cards totaling ten, or picture cards count as nothing or 0. All other cards count as their face value. If the cards total a two-digit number, the last digit counts as the value of the hand. For example, 7+8=15, counts as 5 in baccarat.
Play begins when the shoe is passed to the first customer, who then deals the cards under the supervision of the dealers. Four cards are dealt alternately from the shoe starting with player. If a third card is required for either or both hands, the dealer calls for it. Once the play begins, pre-established rules determine the draw.
All wagers for the bank or player pay even money. Winning bank bets are charged a five percent commission. You may also wager that the bank and the player will draw hands that tie. This wager pays 9 for 1.
The Mirage also offers Midi-Baccarat and Mini-Baccarat games.
Blackjack is one of the most popular casino games. The Mirage offers traditional shoe games, continuous shufflers, and double deck games. The object of the game is to draw cards that total as close to 21 as possible without going over. Each player receives two cards and the dealer receives two cards: one card face up and one down. Tens, Jacks, Queens, and Kings count as ten and aces may count as one or eleven. All other cards count as face value.
Players may elect to stand or hit their hands. If a player hits and his or her total is more than 21, the player "busts" or loses. If the dealer "busts" and the player does not, then the player wins. The player wins if their total is closer to 21 than the dealer's total. If the player and dealer have the same total, it is a tie or "push".
player receiving an ace and a ten-value card as his or her first two cards,
the player has "Blackjack" and wins three to two on the bet unless
the dealer also has Blackjack, then it would be a push.
Craps is one of the fastest moving and most exciting casino games today. A crew of three dealers, each with specific tasks, attends to players as they place bets while a player rolls the dice. Players are welcome to place as many or as few different bets as they choose. The Mirage offers very competitive odds on our craps tables.
The Mirage offers both single zero and double zero roulette wheels. Players bet with colored roulette chips designated for each roulette table. The dollar value for each chip is determined at time of buy-in.
There are 36 numbers plus 0 and 00 and many combinations of numbers on which to place bets. Additional bets include: red/black, even/odd, 1 to 18, 19 to 36, first dozen, second dozen, third dozen, and column bets.
The dealer spins the ball. If it lands on a number on which a player has placed a chip the player wins. The payout is determined by how many numbers are covered by a player's chip.
Pai Gow is played with domino-like tiles. Four tiles are dealt to each player, the dealer, and each vacant position at the table. Dice are shaken and the total on the dice is used to determine which position receives the first hand. The object of the game is to create two hands that are both higher than the bank hand. If one hand is higher than the bank hand and one lower then it is a push. Bets are paid even money and the house collects a 5% commission on all winning wagers.
As the name implies, this unique game combines elements from Pai Gow and Poker. Players use a traditional deck of 52 playing cards plus one joker, which acts only as an ace or to complete a straight, flush, or straight flush. Players use the seven cards dealt to them to create two hands; one high hand of five cards and a second hand of two cards. As in Pai Gow, both hands must be higher than the bank to win. The house collects a 5% commission on all winning wagers.
