    when I was last in Las Vegas in early December, the Mirage was providing trays of free food in the small lounge area next to the High Limit slot room throughout the weekend. I had not seen this there before, and my thinking is that it was a one-time thing because it was during their holiday gift shoppe promotion. but perhaps someone who's been there this year can tell me for sure?

    (just curious, as I am thinking I may camp out in that lounge for a couple of hours next weekend to watch an NBA playoff game.)

    The answer is yes

    There are chicken fingers and other foods in that lounge today, which makes me think it is a weekend thing here.

    every HL room I've ever been in has a free buffet for HL players usually in a room in the back or off to the side. but they don't really check who uses it, so it's really just a matter of who knows about it. they change the food regularly and it often has a lot of Asian food since there are a lot of HL players are Asian.

    Same experience, but some hotels are much better than others about keeping it stocked. From my experience, Aria and Bellagio keep theirs stocked anytime of day with at least something. Mandalay Bay only seems to have food at certain times. Wouldn't surprise me if Mirage is the same since it seems to have a comparable number of HL players as MB

    Score. I no longer need to budget for food. I just sneak into these high limit areas and eat!!! Extra gambling monies!

    Where is the one in Bellagio? (or even Aria)
    I know where the restroom (WC) is in Bellagio HL slot room, but never saw anything that looked like a lounge.
    The one in Caesars only has snackies, like a pretzel mix type stuff in their HL slot room lounge/WC area
    Nothing in Paris or PH, but of course being a CET, they have Diamond lounges

    at the B it's not in the slot room, it's in the Bacc salon. continue past the restrooms and past the first couple of private tables there's a small room on the right with like 4 tables and a buffet in the back. it has mostly Asian food like lo mein, stir fry, hot and sour soup, etc.

    Yes, at CP the "baccarat buffet" is in the Palace Court casino past the bathrooms. They have a nice little spread 24/7 with finger sandwiches, fruit, soup, sometimes sushi rolls. No one really stands guard but there are so few people in there I have to believe staff keeps an eye out for "intruders."

    Interestingly enough, food is way better than the diamond lounges but nobody is sitting there eating like a cow like they do in the DLs--just a couple of bites and back to the tables. No need to gorge yourself when comped meals at real restaurants await...

    I wonder if playing in HL slots would be enough to just walk past everyone in the Palace Court table area to the bathrooms/lounge back there with no one batting any eye?

    It would be a crying shame if it wasn't since playing in high limit slots requires a lot more than playing in high limit table games.

    you'd likely be wrong. I've been to all of those places and nobody has ever batted an eye if you walk like you know where you're going and you belong there. the last thing they want to do is offend one of their big players, so if you act like one, they'll treat you like one. it's just food ...

    Shifter gave the info on the B. At Aria, its in the back corner of the main HL bac area. If you walk in, just go to the back toward the right. Its in the corner behind the two roulette tables. Very similar food to the Bellagio HL room

    "if you walk like you know where you're going and you belong there."

    This is the key. Some of us can pull it off, some of us can't.

    I just didn't want this thread to turn into: "I'm going to the Flamingo/Excalibur/Orleans next month. I'm on a budget. I really don't want to pay for more than one meal a day but I like the idea of those snacks in the HL room. Do they have a baccarat buffet at my hotel? Where is it? Is anyone guarding it? Do you think if I went in there around dinner time with my wife, my mother, and my three kids anyone would say anything? Is there a dress code or can I just show up in my pool attire? I don't like to change for dinner when I'm on vacation. Would they replenish the food quickly after we scarfed it all down or would we have to come back later to get a complete meal out of it? Do you think they would give me a free cocktail while I was there too? I would hate to ask for one and then get charged for it. Are tips expected? If so, maybe I'll just skip the whole thing and go to McDonalds since tipping isn't expected there. Would they mind if I took a few things back to my room in a paper bag? Or are those snacks really just there as a convenience for someone who has been playing in the HL room all day?"

    No disrespect to anyone who might ask any of the above. This is a joke. But all joking aside--if you have to ask us if you can get away with this, you probably can't. If you can--you know where these places are already :)

    At the Mirage, there is also a small buffet in the the back of the bac side of their HL room for the table games.

    MGM Grand has such an area, but on my last three trips, not a single morsel has ever been set out all night long (three multiple-night trips).

    I'm referring to that small buffet area to the right of the High Limit Desk (on the way to the HL restrooms; where they have a wall-mounted flatscreen).

    What's up with that, new policy; only for special events?

    It's usually not in the slots area but usually in the Bacc area. At MGM it's in the mansion room back in the private salon area.

    Never been there, only play MGM's High Limit Slots--could I trouble you to point out a landmark on this floorplan map please?
