One of the greatest innovations of this high-tech age we live in has to be when cell phones started to have cameras.
Think about it. To take a picture, you used to have to actually have a camera—which was bought as a camera and nothing else and could not play Candy Crush—load it with film—which was like a whole separate thing from the camera—take your shot, go get the film developed—they had whole businesses housed in little sheds in parking lots devoted to this. Really, little sheds—and then finally you got to see that all your pictures were ruined because there was this lens cap thing you were supposed to remove before you started.
I know. It was positively prehistoric. Like from the 1990s.
Now of course we take pictures of everything with such ease that we take actually pictures of everything.
We take pictures of what we get served at restaurants, our friends, our friends doing funny things (sort-of), our pets, our pets doing funny things, our cars, our pets in our cars doing funny things and so on and so on. Then, of course, there’s the selfie, which are pictures of ourselves. Sometimes, we spice it up and take them with friends, strangers or our pets … especially if they are doing funny things.
And recently we’ve discovered we can do the whole thing all over again on our phone’s video camera. (We’re not going to even get into the old video tape tangles).
Is this a wonderful time to be alive or what?
So, in the interest of keeping this photo/video craze going, Borgata Online has introduced its #NowThatsAWin sweepstakes in which you can take a shot—or video—of you doing one of the most fun things in the world—winning money at Borgata Casino or Borgata Poker online.
It’s really easy. Between now and November 3, just snap and share a shot or video of your best moments playing at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com on our Facebook page and you could win an overnight stay at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Bonus Slot Dollars or entry into live Borgata Poker Tournaments. You can also share your moments on Instagram or Twitter…just be sure to tag them with #NowThatsAWin.
And if our early entries are any indication, our online players are getting the hang of it, such as @rhondaorchard, who snapped a shot of a slots win as her dog looked on. See, pets.
Most of the shots so far have been screenshots of big wins—which is always cool—and a few selfies have been snapped also showing the screens.
And then there’s @zackseymour who posted a shot of himself grinding at BorgataPoker.com while wearing a horse mask. Yes a horse mask. Maybe it brings him luck? To each his own.
Now all you need to do is win some prizes, starting with a first prize of an overnight stay at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, a $200 dining credit, and your choice of Bonus Slot Dollars or a $500 entry to a live poker tournament in the Borgata Poker Room.
