The MirageCasino collectors and poker fans looking to score a piece of the Mirage may soon have the opportunity as the property is expected to be liquidated after the closing date of July 17.

After purchasing the property in December 2022 for $1 billion, the Seminole tribe of Florida (owners of Hard Rock International) initially said that the property would remain open as the casino transitioned to a Hard Rock property.

Those plans apparently changed and the property is expected to be closed through 2027. Hard Rock has now hired Proximity Capital to liquidate the property’s contents.

“The liquidators are selling marketing room packages wholesale, with packages ranging from $1,000 to $2,500,” FOX-5 Las Vegas reports. “Some room packages include multiple beds, chairs, tables, lighting, curtains, TVs and more. The liquidators said they offer special financing for those looking to purchase multiple room packages and to those who own hotels or AirBNBs.”

The sale begins on Aug. 1 with furniture removed from the property as first items to go up for bidding. The Tropicana, which is being demolished to make way for a new stadium for the Oakland Athletics baseball team, went through a similar process after closing in April.

That sale allowed gambling fans to purchase items from the casino. A Mirage representative said casino management is still considering a public sale of some items as well.

The Mirage holds a special place in many Las Vegas poker players’ hearts. The property was the city’s poker hotspot for much of the 1990s and even received a mention in the film Rounders. The poker room closed in 2020 for the pandemic and never reopened.
