Real Deal on the LuXor
Buyer beware - all MGM Resorts properties charge the highest resort fees (nearly $40/night) plus a $10 per day fee to self-park your car. VegasTripping suggests you find alternate accommodations.
The LuXor is a scandalous joint. The rebar holding the building up is cracking, the concrete foundation is sinking and in 2011, three guests contracted Legionella disease... killing one of them in January 2012. Not that any of that will stop the throngs of Criss Angel obsessives from kneeling at the alter of that illusion for the forseeable future. The casino is set in the bottom of the big pyramid, on a platform above the casino floor is a shopping/food court area, and above that is the top of the pyramid. The energy here seems to get lost up in the top of the pyramid. Slots aren't medium tighter than next door neighbor Excalibur and the table games are medium alright - you're better off heading to Mandalay Bay where the dealers are friendlier and the vibe is nicer. Still a nice place, but there are better options in the immediate vicinity.
Are the vibes lucky at LuXor?
Decor is 'Standard Casino meets King Tut meets Binions'. The layout is typical of the more recent resorts, concentric circles of slots leading to a circle of table games (with two spokes - craps and roulette towards Excalibur, and assorted card games towards the main lobby). In the center of the casino is a semi-enclosed Baccarat area surrounded on one side by high limit slots.
What casino games are offered at LuXor?
Slots, Video Poker, BlackJack, Craps, Roulette (double zero), Baccarat, PaiGow, Keno, a poker room and a not-so bitchin' but still usable Race and Sports Book.
Does LuXor have casino comps?
MGM's M Life card works at all MGM Mirage resorts.
