There are a lot of cute slogans that come to mind when announcing the top online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
You know, stuff like “It pays to play at BorgataCasino.com,” “We’ve got the best jackpots in New Jersey” and “You don’t even have to put on pants to win big at BorgataCasino.com.”
Well, how about “Take a ride on the Borgata Money Boat?”
Looking at the big online winners for March 16 – 22, BorgataCasino.com‘s Money Boat slots hit for $20,000 in jackpots. Add to that another big video poker win and you could say “There’s a lot of winning going on at BorgataCasino.com.”
See, they just come naturally.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for March 16 to March 22:
It’s officially springtime in New Jersey, and now that the snow is melting and the sun is shining, something big is blooming at BorgataCasino.com.

Just sign in to your BorgataCasino.com account this Friday, Saturday or Sunday and opt in to the Spring Bonus promotion under the Promotions tab. When you do, we’ll show you a card. Just click it to reveal your prize.

Happy spring from everyone at BorgataCasino.com.
Women continue to rule this March (which just happens to be Women’s History Month) as once again female players at BorgataCasino.com racked up better than $16K in slots jackpots.
And our look at the big online winners at Borgata’s online sites shows that when it comes to online poker at BorgataPoker.com, persistence can lead to a pretty good hot streak from time to time. Just ask player—username Laumserg—who brought home more than $12,000 in tournament cash by scoring in four separate tournaments.
And that means this look at the big online winners highlights close to $30,000 in wins.
That’s a great week no matter how you look at it. So, how’s your week going?
Here are the big Borgata online winners from March 9 -15:
– On March 9, Marianne from Garfield, New Jersey, made a $20 spin playing the Dungeons and Dragons Crystal Caverns slots game and won a $5,300 jackpot.
– On March 11, Dawn from Madison, New Jersey, made a $20 bet playing Cleopatra and turned it into a $6,226 win.
– On March 15, Elizabeth from Bergenfield, New Jersey, hit a jackpot worth $4,952 playing the Under the Waves slots game.
Excited for the first day of spring? So are we. And at BorgataCasino.com, we’re celebrating by handing out $20 in free Bonus Dollars to 20 random players on March 20th. That’s a lot of twenties.
You don’t need to do anything special to participate. Just make sure you’re logged in to your BorgataCasino.com account on Friday, March 20th between Noon and 11:59pm. If you win, we’ll let you know and add the $20 Bonus Dollars to your account.
New to Bonus Dollars? They’re like regular cash, except they come with a wagering requirement. For this promotion, it’s a tiny one. We’re talking a 1x wagering requirement. That means to turn those $20 Bonus Dollars into real cash that you can play and withdraw, you just need to wager $20. It’s that easy.
What do Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neil and Dwight Howard have in common?
NBA greats? Yes. Offensive juggernauts? Yes.
Couldn’t shoot free throws if their lives depended on it? Well, maybe not that bad, but yes.
Hitting free throws is a singular art—just ask Steve Nash, the all-time NBA leader in free throw percentage. But as anyone who remembers the hack-a-Shaq years knows, shooting free throws is the one basketball skill that’s not necessarily hogged by pro ballers.
Everyone who has ever walked onto a basketball court (or for that matter a driveway court) can impress at the free throw line, even if you couldn’t dunk with a ladder. And it’s that skill that we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa are tapping into as we announce our first ever skill-based casino promotion.
You guessed it, we’re having a free throw contest.
The Borgata $10,000 Guaranteed Basketball Free Throw Tournament will be held at 10am on Saturday, March 21 in the Signature Room. The groundbreaking new game, which has been approved by The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement as part of its “New Jersey First” program is the first of its kind anywhere in the country.
“As Atlantic City’s market-leading resort destination, we believe that it is important that Borgata continue to play a dynamic role in the implementation of original and revolutionary programs,” said Borgata President and Chief Operating Officer Tom Ballance. “We appreciate the progressive thinking of the Division as well as their encouragement as we begin to introduce social and skill-based gaming options to a new generation of players.”
Considering that March is Women’s History Month, we don’t know if it was serendipitous (cool word huh?) inevitable or just plain lucky, but Borgata’s big online winners for March 2 to March 8 shows that when it comes to online play, women rule.
That’s three big female winners at BorgataCasino.com and better than $32,000 in jackpots.
Meanwhile, our BorgataPoker.com winners took home another $13K in tournament wins.
Your turn may be next.
Here’s a look at Borgata’s big online winners for March 2 – 8.

Here’s a quick riddle. What would happen if you were taking a boat trip to a candy store when you were suddenly attacked by zombies? Answer: About $11,000 in slot jackpots would be awarded at Borgata’s online casino.
Ok, bad riddle, but a look at our big online winners for February 23 – March 1 shows the wide array of slots themes at BorgataCasino.com that amp up the fun. The jackpots, however, are always amped up as this week’s winners shows once again that small bets can pay off big.
Here’s the online winners for February 23 – March 1:
– On February 23, Janice from Orange, New Jersey, bet $10 while playing the Dawn of the Dead slots game and won $3,045.

Another week and another about $90,000 in online winnings to report at Borgata’s online casino sites BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
It’s getting to be par for the course.
But if there’s one lesson to be learned from the online winners for February 16 – 22, it’s that while you can bet as much — or as little — as you want, sometimes shooting the works in a big bet, say $30, brings the biggest jackpot of the week.
Food for thought. Here’s a look at the big online winners for February 16 – 22.
– On February 16, John from New York City won 2 jackpots totaling $26,400 while playing the Cats slots game.
– On February 17, Chris from Dayton, New Jersey, hit a $13,530 jackpot while playing the Melon Madness slots game from his mobile device.
