The Mirage to Launch $1.6M Six-Day Promo Ahead of Closure

The promotions are going to run from July 9 through July 13 and then resume for July 16, the day before the iconic property will close for visitors

Ahead of closing, casinos in Nevada are required to distribute progressive slot winnings, as well as table game funds. Nearly a decade ago, before the closing of The Riviera, the casino organized a special promotion to distribute such funds.

Similar is the case for The Mirage which is expected to shut its doors later this month. As announced by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the casino will organize six days of special promotions, distributing a total of $1.6 million in table games and progressive slot cash.

The total breaks down to $400,000 in progressive table game cash and another $1.2 million in progressive slot money. All those funds need to be distributed among gamblers before The Mirage ceases its operations on July 17. The promotions will run from July 9 until July 13. Then, they will resume for July 16.

A Number of Guaranteed Drawings Are Scheduled

Visitors who like table games will have the option to participate in progressive table game drawings. The total sum of the guaranteed prizes will be $400,000 and the promotions will require visitors to earn entries by playing eligible table games and using a Unity by Hard Rock rewards card.

Interested players will have the option to secure entries between 11 AM and 7 PM on both July 12 and July 13. The eligible games will include baccarat, Texas Hold’em and blackjack among other popular games. Drawings will take place at 8 PM on the two dates.

On the other hand, there will be $200,000 up for grabs in guaranteed winnings from progressive slot promotions that will take place between July 9 and July 11. After that, for July 12 and July 13, the guarantees will increase to $250,000. On each of the days where promotions will be held, they will start at 3 PM and run through 7 PM.

The upcoming closure of The Mirage is mandatory due to its transition into becoming Hard Rock Las Vegas. Considering the venue would shut its doors, Nevada’s Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation helped organize job fairs through its Rapid Response Program. The initiative seeks to help affected workers find new employment.
