There was a time when Labor Day Weekend was kind of a bittersweet holiday here in Atlantic City. Sure, as a beach resort we partied hard at the unofficial end of the summer, but it was also the end of the season and things we’re about to quiet down until spring.
Well, that quieting down part is long gone and we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa go full blast 24/7, 365 days a year. But we still love to party on Labor Day Weekend.
So that’s just sweet, no bitter.
To celebrate the end of summer, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has put together a line-up like no other on the Jersey Shore for this Labor Day Weekend. From casino promotions to concerts and shows to the best nightclub action anywhere, we’ve got the perfect holiday celebration to see out a long summer season.
Check it out:
We start our Pick the Pros Football Challenge—which runs through the season until the Big Game—on Labor Day Sept. 7. That’s also the date of the $100,000 Cash Sweepstakes with a $25,000 grand prize.
Players earned Tournament Leaderboard Points for participating in qualifying BorgataPoker.com online tournaments during the month of August; and earned Tournament Leaderboard Bonus Points based on cash placed finished, buy-in amount and total number of tournament entries. Congratulations! The top 30 place finishers won monthly leaderboard prizes, and the top 500 place finishers for the August…
We welcome Asher Conniff as a guest blogger to Borgata Poker Blog! Asher made Borgata history by winning Borgata Spring Poker Open Kickoff event and Borgata WPT World Championship, both of which he qualified for on BorgatPoker.com online satellite events.
Coming into Sunday, I had already had one of the best weeks of my life. Ten days before, I had turned a $60 satellite on BorgataPoker.com into a $560 seat in the Borgata Spring Poker Open $1 million guaranteed kick-off event, a seat which I then turned into the first place prize of $203,231. After years of grinding poker tournaments full-time, both live and online, it was wildly fulfilling to see the fruits of my labor. Needless to say, between the large sum of money I won and the sweet, sweet vindication of beating my good buddy Matt Stout heads up, I was pretty damn happy!!
Back to “that” Sunday. I was at my next-door neighbor’s apartment in Brigantine, NJ, a stones throw away from Borgata. As we often did, a group of 6 or so of us had gotten together that day to hang out while we all played online poker tournaments. Our ritual: we order food, watch sports and talk through hands on our breaks. Armed with a freshly renewed bankroll and sense of confidence, my levels of relaxation were extremely high, and how could they not be!? I also was overjoyed to be heading to Europe the next week with my mother and sister, a vacation that was to span over 2 weeks and had been planned over 6 months prior. Having never been to Europe, I was super excited, and this was obviously the ideal time to be going on vacation. I even skipped the $3500 buy-in Borgata Spring Poker Open Championship event in anticipation of this trip, knowing that if I was to win/nearly win the tournament I would miss my flight!
You know what’s the coolest thing about online slot machines? The bonus spins.
You’re just chugging along making your bets and suddenly something lines up just right, and the game takes on a life of its own. Graphics start appearing, characters in the game start talking to you and suddenly the game just starts spinning turns—and hitting payoffs—you didn’t have to bet on.
And it’s all just a bonus, money won without risking a bet.
Just ask Calvin from Piscataway, who hit the biggest slot jackpot of the week at BorgataCasino.com during the bonus round of Super Monopoly. A few bonus symbols line up, the game goes on a little side trip and the next thing you know Calvin has $8,180 in the bank.
Without betting, because, you know, Bonus.
What bonuses are waiting for you at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com?
Here’s a look at the big online winners for August 17 – 23:
If you’ve never been to a Counting Crows concert, you might innocently ask something like “What can I expect when the Counting Crows play at Borgata’s Festival Park Labor Day weekend?
Ha, you really have never been to a Counting Crows show. What to expect? Who knows?
Oh, sure, there will be Counting Crows music sung by Adam Duritz, but that’s about all you can say for sure.
A set list? They don’t use one.
Exact performances of their songs to match their recorded versions so you can sing along? Nope, they change them—and usually the lyrics—every show.
You’ll hear the band’s signature hits like “Mr. Jones,” “Round Here” and “Accidentally in Love”. Well, yeah on that one, but after that, there’s about 80 other Counting Crow songs they choose from.
The bottom line is that the Counting Crows have always been known for their live performances and their improvising on stage. It makes every Counting Crows show unique.
Take the set list. Duritz will work it out right before they take the stage September 5 at Festival Park by sending some text messages.
“It goes to the band, the crew and the opening band, if we’re good friends,” he tells USA Today in a recent interview.
At Festival Park, the opening band is Citizen Cope.
It’s the end of August – and almost the end of summer. We know, we know. It’s tough to leave beach season in the rear view mirror. But we’re making it easier to say goodbye to the hottest days of the year by putting a cool $5,000 in cash and prizes on the line.
Our End of Summer Sweepstakes packs a top prize of $1,000 cash and up to $500 in Bonus Dollars into one last weekend hurrah. From Friday, August 28th through Sunday, August 30th, we’re giving away entries to our sweepstakes and it’s easy to be a part of it.
If you want to earn entries, log in to your BorgataCasino.com account on August 28th, 29th or 30th and make a deposit using bonus code SUNSET15. When you do, you’ll get your first entry. To earn more entries, just play slots, classic slots, or progressive slots. Every time you rack up 20 iRewards Points, you’ll get one more entry, up to a maximum of 10 entries per day.
A total of 100 BorgataCasino.com winners will be randomly selected in the $5,000 End of Summer Sweepstakes. Enter and play this weekend and you could be one of them.
There are a lot of great things we get to yell when we win or score in a game. You know, stuff like “Bingo,” “Gooooaaaal,” “We’re No. 1” etc. But one of the coolest has to be when you get to yell “Yahtzee.”
Anyone who has ever played the classic dice game knows the feeling when all the dice line up just right. Well guess what? You can get your chance to yell Yahtzee playing online at BorgataCasino.com, as Anthony from Somers Point found out playing our newest slots game “Yahtzee.” His $2 bet won him $3,500, which is a little more than we ever won playing Yahtzee in the living room.
Hey we like to keep you yelling—and winning—here at BorgaataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
Of course as much as we love yelling Yahtzee, the real story this week may be the $100,000 jackpot won by Donna from Franklin Lakes on our Double Diamond Slot game. We don’t know what she yelled when she hit the $100K, but she’s probably still yelling.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for August 10 – August 16:
