My source that says the The Mirage has been sold also says that they will have a new hotel partner once they’re no longer be a part of M Life, MGM Resorts’ players club.
It’s rumored that Marriott will be the hotel partner for The Mirage once the sale goes through.
It’s difficult to be an independent hotel-casino operator on the Vegas Strip so Starwood Capital Group is taking steps to bring in a partner to help fill the hotel. Marriott was just voted the #1 national hotel chain rewards program by US News and World Report.
Starwood is also rumored to bringing in Paragon Gaming to operate the casino. Paragon currently operates the Westgate casino and used to operate the Riviera casino.
MGM Resorts casinos that use this players club are located in Las Vegas, Biloxi, Detroit and Tunica. In addition to these MGM Resorts hotels there are other casinos that are partners of the players club (See Pinnacle-MGM details here).
This is one of the most searched terms that send people to EDGeVegas.com. Sorry to burst your bubble googlers but there are no M Life casinos in Atlantic City.
