We like to give acknowledgement to our big online winners each week at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, because, well, who doesn’t like a big jackpot?
But there’s something to be said for the steadier wins that happen every day at our online sites as well. Take the Daily $10K Guaranteed tournament at BorgataPoker.com (and our partners at PartyPoker). That’s a daily tournament that paid six Borgata online winners almost $3,000 in jackpot winnings for May 9 through May 15.
That’s better than $18,000 in daily tournament wins for just one of our daily tournaments.
Attention restaurant industry workers! Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is looking for you.
In anticipation of the opening of the Borgata Marketplace Eatery – developed in partnership with local restaurateur George Siganos – we’re holding a job fair May 23 to 25 at The Water Club at Borgata.
We’re looking for more than 100 workers ranging from baristas and cashiers to managers and shift supervisors. Many of the positions will be permanent and full-time. Borgata is seeking talented and motivated individuals that can meet our high standards and quality service.
Slots players are always looking for that big multiplier when playing their favorite games. You know, the one where you win three times your bet, 10 times your bet, 100 times your bet and so on.
How about 1,000 times your bet?
That happened to Shirley from Rahway at BorgataCasino.com when she placed a $5 bet on our Diamond Slot game and won $5,000. Now that’s the kind of multiplier that sets Borgata’s online casinos apart.
It was another good week for players at BorgataCasino.com as our top three winners for the week topped $10,000 on our online slots.
Of course, over at BorgataPoker.com the winner of the Sunday $50K guaranteed tournament topped $10K alone, but that comes with outlasting the field in the tournament.
The point is that whether you are a slots player or a grinder, Borgata’s online sites have the games you want.
Here’s a look at our top online winners for Monday, April, 25, 2016 through Sunday, May 1, 2016.
Regular visitors to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa who arrive via the Atlantic City Expressway will face a detour in getting to Borgata from Monday May 2 to Thursday May 12 as the AC Tunnel and Connector (Exit 1 from Atlantic City Expressway) will be closed, in both directions, to allow for railroad track repairs….

Poker in New Jersey is booming and you don’t have to look any further than the poker room at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for proof. In addition to the lucrative cash games, daily tournaments (including $3,000 Guaranteed Mondays, $10,000 Guaranteed Wednesdays & Fridays, and the 24/7 Sit & Go tourneys) continue to attract players from all over New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut, and other neighboring states.
But that’s just the tip of the chip stack. Borgata is known for its mega land-based tournament series throughout the year. Just a few months after wrapping up the Borgata Winter Poker Open, Atlantic City’s premier poker destination is putting millions in guaranteed prize money on the table once again in the Borgata Spring Poker Open.
The tournament series runs from April 12th through 29th and features a $1 million guaranteed kickoff tournament, a $1 million guaranteed championship event, and over a dozen other tournaments, many of which come with 6-figure guarantees.
Borgata’s Spring Poker Open series continues to attract players not just from the east coast, but from around the country. It’s arguably one of the most respected poker tournament series in the United States and one that continues to offer guarantee-busting prize pools over and over again. And while players flock to Borgata from all over the country, those in New Jersey have a bit of an upper hand thanks to BorgataPoker.com, the casino’s online poker site.
BorgataPoker.com continues to run satellites for its famous land-based tournament series and in the past, players have found great success steamrolling a few bucks into a seat in a major land-based event. In the most recent Borgata Winter Poker Open, Vinny Pahuja won two online poker satellites that paid out land-based seats — one in the $3,500 buy-in Championship and one in the kickoff tournament. And don’t forget, Asher Conniff made history by turning online satellite wins into over $1 million during the 2015 Borgata Spring Poker Open.
The big story over the weekend was GSSS #30, the $100,000 Guaranteed tournament that saw a final prize pool of $110,600, fueled by 553 entries.
The title of the No Limit Hold’em tourney went to online poker player smoothustler, who won $19,100.62 for his first place victory. And while definitely a big deal, even more impressive is the fact that smoothustler is somewhat of a Garden State Super Series juggernaut.
Since March 2nd, smoothustler has cashed in eight Garden State Super Series events, final tabling six of them. And it’s not just Texas Hold’em that the New Jersey online poker player has proven to be a pro at. In addition to NHL, he’s crushed PLO and 7Stud events, earning over $23,000 in winnings so far.
This isn’t the first Garden State Super Series that smoothustler has done exceptionally well in. Last October, he won over $5,000 in two GSSS III events.
Instead of watching smoothustler conquer more GSSS IV tourneys this week, jump in and stop him in his tracks. There’s lots more on the schedule as Garden State Super Series continues through Sunday, March 13th.
The spotlight might be on GSSS IV for the next week, but that doesn’t mean we’ve forgotten about players who crave small stakes action.
On top of the big guarantees in GSSS IV, our tourney schedule puts tens of thousands in prize money on the table every day — including over $25,000 Monday through Saturday and over $75,000 every Sunday.
Today, it gets even bigger with a series of brand new BorgataPoker.com tournaments for players of all stake levels. Whether you’ve got a dollar to burn or a loaded bankroll to do damage with, you’ll find several tournaments worth playing in:
Fri/Sat/Sun at 10:30am: Deepstack NLH ($500 Guaranteed)
Daily at 12pm: Deepstack NLH ($750 Guaranteed)
Mon-Sat at 5pm: Deepstack NLH ($1,000 Guaranteed)
Garden State Super Series IV was a big success over the last two nights, with the final prize pools of all guaranteed tournaments eclipsing what was guaranteed.
Monday night featured several GSSS IV events, including GSSS #12, the Mega Tuesday 500 with $20,000 in guaranteed prize money. The tournament title went to online poker player leinad, who has racked up $147,705 in BorgataPoker.com tournaments alone. The New Jersey poker player also won the Mega Tuesday 500 back on February 24th and he’s amassed several other 1st place and final table finishes over the last few years.
On Tuesday, GSSS #13, a $20,000 GTD NLH, saw a final prize pool of $24,500, with first place winner JroNMint2722 conquering the tourney for $4,900.
GSSS #14, a $7,500 GTD NLH, featured $10,500 in prize money, with Jenger420 winning $2,000 after besting a field of 210 entries. This has been a successful series for Jenger420. He most recently cashed for $532 in GSSS #6 on March 1st.
In GSSS #15, 235 entries fueled the $10K prize pool to $10,926. ManBearPig finished first to secure over $1,803.
There’s more Garden State Super Series action tonight and every night until March 13th, so join us and make your way into the next GSSS IV recap.
