Agua Caliente Resort Casino Rancho Mirage turned 20 years old earlier this year. The casino continues to evolve with updates and renovations seemingly every year or so.
The company recently renovated and re-opened Pívat. The newly remodeled and upgraded cigar lounge offers more than ever today. The most notable expansion of Pívat is the new gaming space.
Darrel Kammeyer, Vice President of Marketing, Agua Caliente Casinos said:
“The most exciting new feature at Pívat is gaming. Guests can now enjoy their favorite cigars in our gorgeous cigar lounge while playing the latest slots or trying their luck at one of our Blackjack tables.”
Pívat Cigar Lounge at Agua Caliente originally opened in 2018. The recent update brings big leather seating and big-screen TVs to watch the games.
The most important addition to the cigar lounge is the inclusion of gaming space. Guests at Pivat can now enjoy blackjack with live dealers, slot machines and bartop video poker.
Smokers will note that Pívat has 52 brands of cigars and more than 200 different profiles. A walk-in humidor keeps all of the cigars fresh.
In addition to cigars and top-shelf spirits, guests can order from The Steakhouse. The slimmed-down dining menu offers everything from an artisanal cheese plate to steak.
The cigar lounge also has cigar, dining and cocktail specials. The complimentary coffee and croissant with cigar purchase sound like a good way to start the day.
Pívat Cigar Lounge at Agua Caliente is open daily from 11A-2A. The Steakhouse menu is available from 5P-10P nightly. At this time the Blackjack tables are available Thursday-Sunday from 6P-2A.
Those of you driving to Agua Caliente Rancho Mirage might want to fill up with gas before going home. It appears as though the new gas station has lower than normal prices for California.
Agua Caliente Rancho Mirage Blackjack
There are three Agua Caliente casinos in California. The three properties include Cathedral City, Palm Springs and Rancho Mirage. The Palm Springs location is the only one that currently offers a $3 blackjack game at this time.
We’re going to focus on the blackjack games at Rancho Mirage since that’s where Pívat Cigar Lounge is located. Unfortunately, this property doesn’t offer the $3 blackjack game for low rollers.
The 70,000 square foot gaming floor at Agua Caliente Rancho Mirage has 48 table games. There’s a variety of blackjack games ranging from single deck to six decks. In addition to the traditional game, the casino offers Free Bet Blackjack.
Agua Caliente Rancho Mirage also offers a few side bets for those who are looking for some extra action. The optional blackjack wagers include:
- Bust’n Loose Blackjack
- Bahama Bonus Blackjack
- Double-Up Blackjack
Here’s a good time for a reminder that side bets typically have a larger house edge than the base blackjack game. Approach with caution.
