It’s a new year and we have a whole new list of winners here at Borgata. As soon as the ball dropped, we got the ball rolling the first week of 2017 by turning ordinary online casino and poker players into extraordinarily big winners. Here’s a look at who was on fire at the online slots, who stacked their way to victories at the poker tables, and which games and tourneys should be on your radar if you want to be next.
