LAS VEGAS

MGM MIRAGE (NYSE: MGM) announced today that it has entered into the Fifth Amended and Restated Loan Agreement (the "Fifth Loan Agreement") by and among the Company, MGM Grand Detroit, LLC, as initial co-borrower, and the lenders named therein. The Fifth Loan Agreement provides for a maximum borrowing capacity of $7 billion consisting of a revolving credit facility and a term loan facility.

"We are extremely gratified by the overwhelming support our financial partners have shown in our Company," said Jim Murren, President, CFO and Treasurer of MGM MIRAGE. "This credit facility when combined with our internally generated cash flows will provide us the capital necessary to finance our domestic and international growth initiatives while at the same time allowing us to continue to re-invest in our market leading resorts."

The Fifth Loan Agreement reallocates $1.0 billion from the existing revolving credit facility such that the amended senior credit facilities will consist of a $4.5 billion senior revolving credit facility and a $2.5 billion senior term loan facility, in each case extending the maturity date to October 2011. Additionally, the senior credit facilities include an increase option where the Company may solicit either existing lenders or new lenders to raise additional commitments to either the senior revolving credit facility, the senior term loan facility, or both of them, thereby increasing the maximum borrowing capacity under these facilities to $8.0 billion. The Fifth Loan Agreement reduces draw pricing and undrawn pricing across the grid by 37.5 basis points and 5 basis points, respectively and revises the terms of the maximum total leverage ratio and interest charge coverage ratio covenants. In addition, the senior credit facilities provide for customary affirmative, negative and financial covenants; however, it will no longer contain a senior leverage ratio covenant.

The foregoing description of the Fifth Loan Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by the terms of the Fifth Loan Agreement. A complete copy of the Fifth Loan Agreement can be obtained by visiting the Company's website at www.mgmmirage.com or the SEC's website at http://sec.gov/.
