We’re fast approaching the one-year anniversary of online gaming in New Jersey and at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Yep, it was in November 2013 when BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com first went live and since then, we’ve crowned tons of winners.
At BorgataCasino.com we have the best selection of online slots in New Jersey, and as regular readers of this blog know we are always updating our software and adding new games.
And that just means more winners.
So as a new feature, we at the Borgata Blog are going to highlight the big winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
Here’s a look at some of our jackpot and poker tournament winners for the week of October 6 through October 12.
You may already know that koi represents prosperity. But you haven’t seen anything quite like this. In Water Dragons, our new game from IGT, you’re transported to a world unlike anything you’ve seen before – one where wealth is in abundance thanks to rewarding pearls and koi that comes in a variety of colors.
You’ll love the bonus round in Water Dragons because it’s really easy to play. When you land on three bonus scatter symbols you’ll automatically earn 15 free spins. You can also retrigger the bonus for up to 225 spins. As you play, collect pearls to turn a colored koi wild on the reels and qualify for even bigger payouts!
Savannah Sunrise Gives you 243 Ways to Win
Prefer land to water? Try Savannah Sunrise, our latest online slot game that sets you loose in an African safari. Spotting the right animals nets you big payouts, especially if an elephant appears through your binoculars. Giraffes, zebras and baboons are lucrative too.
Ready to boldly go where no casino player has gone before? Climb aboard the Enterprise with Spock and Kirk – and beam up a large payout in Star Trek: Against All Odds. It’s the latest online slot from IGT to be added to our big collection.
Speaking of odds, they’ll definitely seem like they’re stacked in your favor when you see all the ways to win.
With the MultiWay Xtra feature, you’ll have 720 ways to win on every spin thanks to a system that pays you out for matching symbols in any position – even in adjacent columns. If you hit more than one matching symbol in the same column, you’ll see your award multiplied.
There’s also an Enterprise Defender Bonus where you’ll get to battle incoming Romulan missiles and improve your rank. The higher your rank, the more points you’ll earn and the higher your bonus payout will be.
Star Trek: Against All Odds has to be one of our most rewarding, most detailed slot game. There’s so much to explore in this deep space adventure, so come play – and may the payouts be with you.
Ah Tuesday. It’s the third day of the week and the second day of the work week.
But that’s not why it’s called Tuesday. The name actually come from a Viking god of war named Tiw, so it’s Tiw’s day. Kind of like Thursday is named after Thor and so on.
In Latin the name was associated with the Roman god Mars, so that’s why in Spanish its Martes. Because Spanish is a Latin-based language.
More than you wanted to know?
Well, we just mention it because Tuesday has another meeting this October at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. In simple terms it’s just the greatest weekday ever to win big and party with us here in Atlantic City.
First up, slots players can enjoy 2X Slot Dollars every Tuesday all day at Borgata in October. Plus, it’s a whole month of Toll Free Tuesdays on the Atlantic City Expressway (inbound tolls only).
Online players at BorgataCasino.com can also get 2X iRewards Points from noon to 8pm every Tuesday. Play any slots, classic slots or progressive slots and you’ll earn double iRewards Points (iRPs).
At BorgataCasino.com, our goal is to keep you on your toes by adding exciting new games to our online slot game collection. Today, we’ve got two brand new games that will leave you howling like mad – Wild Wolf and Wolf Rising from IGT.
Wild Wolf is much like the Wild Wolf game you might have seen on the floor of Borgata in Atlantic City. Only now, you can growl at the moon, sharpen your claws, and snag some big jackpots from home.
When it comes to paylines, Wild Wolf has a lot of them to sink your teeth into. We’re talking 50 paylines, giving you lots of chances to line up symbols and land a big one. Wild Wolf also has the famous Stacked Wilds feature. With each spin, the reels are automatically populated with a bunch of consecutive Wild symbols to help you win more than you’d expect.
Our favorite part about Wild Wolf is the AutoPlay feature. When you activate it, you can sit back and relax while the software does all the spinning for you.
Whether you love board games, adventure games, or slots games, we’ve got you covered this week with two new additions to BorgataCasino.com. Battleship and Dungeons & Dragons from IGT are now ready to play, and each one offers a different kind of fun and excitement.
In our first game, get ready to sink your enemy’s battleship and sink your teeth into big payouts. Our Battleship slots game is based on the board game of the same name that you know and love.
Your job? Spin the reels and increase your firepower as you stare down the enemy. If you can take down your opponent, you’ll land some explosive wins.
The 40-payline slot game comes with a special Victory Bonus game where you’ll get to fire missiles as you attempt to torpedo the enemy’s fleet. If you do, you’ll earn free spins, free spin multipliers and even bonus wins along the way.
Did you ever watch cowboys play poker in an old western on TV?
Hand after hand after hand they sit there playing draw poker—one kind of poker until the cows come home (That’s a cowboy pun).
Maybe they were purists, or just didn’t have much imagination, but you have to figure that after about a gazillion hands, those cowpokes would have liked a little variety in their games.
Forward to the 21st century and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
One kind of poker? Please.
In the Borgata Poker Room you can play Hold’em, Omaha and all the variations of H.O.R.S. E. while on the casino floor there’s 20 different types of video poker and eight types of table game poker.
Check out Borgata’s three card poker Royal Millionaire promotion.
We’ve added yet another table poker game in Criss Cross Poker—one of the most unique types of poker you’ll find on any casino floor.
You probably know this form of the game from your poker nights with friends. Well, assuming you and your friends are the more adventurous kind of cowboys.
