MGM is one of the biggest names and brands in the casino business. Their MGM Grand stands like a monument on the Vegas Strip and hosts everything from prize fights to poker tournaments. The place is world-renowned, and so are the letters MGM.
The MGM Springfield is located downtown Springfield, Mass., and is one of the most recent of the over 20 MGM properties. This establishment is big and bold and ushering in the modern era of legalized gambling in the state of Massachusetts.
There is a lot to unpack when reviewing a place such as this, so we’ll take it step by step, feature by feature.
MGM Springfield Casino
Of course, the casino in the MGM Springfield is the major draw of the property, and MGM has made it the focus. This is the biggest gaming floor in the state, and they’ve packed it with all the most popular games which players want to play.
There are hundreds of state-of-the-art slots and video poker machines lining the gaming floor. There is also an endless amount of classic casino table games open for play such as blackjack, craps, Pai Gow, and roulette.
Not only that, but they also deliver plenty of other popular table games such as mini-baccarat, midi-baccarat, Three Card Poker, Four Card Poker, Ultimate Texas Hold ’em, War, Big 6, Let it Ride, and Spanish 21. This gaming floor is everything players expect to see when they walk into a casino.
MGM Springfield Poker Room
A feather in the MGM Springfield’s cap is the addition of a poker room. Even as popular as poker is in the United States, there just aren’t many quality poker rooms available.
Casinos like to use the space they have for more profitable things like slots, table games, or high roller rooms. That’s what makes a poker room such a nice feature in these new types of casinos.
And this is a great poker room to boot. There are over 10 active tables with daily cash games and multiple weekly tournaments. There are so many you have to check the calendar to know what you’ll find on any given day.
This is a great poker room, and the action is non-stop. MGM doesn’t need to have a poker room, but the fact that they do shows the respect they have for players.
MGM Springfield Promotions
Not only are there weekly promotions for every occasion, such as drawings, giveaways, and contests, but you can also join the MGM rewards program for all kinds of promotions. For every dollar spent on gaming, dining, hotel stays, or even entertainment at any MGM property, M Life Rewards members earn points.
These points can be redeemed for free plays, hotel comps, dining comps, and free entertainment at every MGM property. The rewards system is tiered as well, allowing frequent users to receive more and more.
Plus, the fact that there are so many MGM establishments, this program is far-reaching. Not only that, but M Life Rewards will also match any rewards you’ve earned from other casinos. Do yourself a favor on your next visit and sign up immediately.
MGM Springfield Hotel
The MGM Springfield hotel sure has lived up to expectations and adds wonderfully to the downtown Springfield revitalization. There are over 240 luxury rooms and suites available in a variety of sizes and rates.
In-room dining and pet-friendly rooms are always available. Of course, they bring all the amenities such as a fitness center, spa, pool center, and rooms fully stocked with all the comforts. Great rooms with great downtown views is what MGM Springfield delivers.
MGM Springfield Dining
There are six eateries in the MGM Springfield, and all are top quality. Costa provides plenty of classic Italian dishes as well as the Costa Pizza Counter for a quick bite, while there is also a Wahlburgers and TAP Sports Bar for American fare.
If you are looking for something more high-end after a good day at the tables, make a reservation at The Chandler Steakhouse or South End Market for great steaks and seafood. Most casinos will have one fine dining option, but MGM goes bigger than that with two top-quality restaurants.
MGM Springfield Entertainment and Nightlife
Not only is this a great casino and hotel in downtown Springfield, but it is also a center for great entertainment. There is a Top Golf Swing Suite as well as a bowling alley and movie theater.
The Commonwealth Bar and Lounge has a calendar full of local live musical acts, and the Roar Comedy Club features the best stand-ups from across the country. However, the MassMutual Center is the big show with over 100,000 square feet of entertainment space in an 8,000-seat arena featuring all the biggest acts in live music and comedy.
The MGM name and brand are famous across the globe for a reason. They deliver a great product in a big and flashy way. The brand every Vegas casino resort wants to build is based on everything MGM has been able to accomplish over the years.
A first-rate casino. A first-rate poker room. First-rate dining and first-rate hotel accommodations. Everything at the MGM Springfield is first rate and everything guests want in a downtown casino resort.
