June 21, 2004

MGM MIRAGE, (NYSE: MGG) announced today that it has entered into a joint venture agreement with Pansy Ho Chiu-king to develop, build and operate a major hotel-casino resort in Macau S.A.R.

Design and planning work has commenced and it is anticipated that the property could open by late 2006.
