As one of the most popular and well known casino and entertainment brands in the world, MGM Grand Detroit opened on temporary premises in 1999 before opening at its current location at 1777 3rd Avenue in 2007.

It houses over 2,800 of the latest themed and original classic slots and video poker games, with denominations starting from just a penny.

For live table games, there is plenty of choice with over 100 hosted tables covering all the classics such as Blackjack, Craps, Let it Ride, Roulette, and other exciting formats such as Tri-Lux Blackjack, Dragon Bonus Baccarat, Criss Cross Poker and Four-Card Poker.

To add to the excitement, there are a vast range of slot tournaments, Poker tournaments, a dedicated Premier Poker Room and even a Super 4 Progressive Blackjack to keep guests entertained.
