When it comes to Willy Wonka movies, the world is basically split into two camps—those who love the 1971 film “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” with Willy played by Gene Wilder, and those who love the 2005 film “Charlie & the Chocolate Factory” with Johnny Depp in the Willy Wonka role.
The 2005 film has the original title of the Roald Dahl 1964 children’s book, but the 1971 film figured out that Willy—especially when played by Wilder—was the true star of the story (with all apologies to Charlie). Well, he and the Oompa Loompas.
So the question is, when you sit down to play Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s new Willy Wonka slots, which Willy do you want smiling down on you as you hit the big jackpot?
Yeah, yeah Depp is all dreamy looking and specializes in quirky roles like Willy, but Borgata is going old school on this one. We’re in the Gene Wilder camp.
The Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Pure Imagination Slots is the latest WMS Gamefield xD™ cabinet slot themed after a song title in the 1971 film. Everything from the goose that laid the golden eggs to Veruca Salt’s tantrums are covered in this bonus-heavy game.
This new theme takes the mechanics that players love from previous Willy Wonka-themed WMS games, adds a unique twist, and then displays them on the seamless screens of the Gamefield xD cabinet for a scrumdidilyumptious gaming experience.
Collect three or more eggs in order to trigger the Egg Bonus, where each egg collected drops into one of three buckets: The Fizzy Lifting Drink Bonus, The Veruca Tantrum Bonus, or The Pure Imagination Free Spins. The bonus with the most eggs then pays out.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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).
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.
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.
