BorgataPoker.com is, of course, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s main website for bringing online poker to New Jersey while BorgataCasino.com is where you’ll find Borgata’s great online casino games.
So how is it that one of the biggest online poker wins we’ve ever had hit at BorgataCasino.com?
Simple. Make a $50 bet on video poker, hit the Royal Flush, pocket $40,000.
Things like that happen all the time on Borgata’s online sites, as you’ll see when you check out what happened to Matt from Audubon in our list of online winners for January 12 – 18.
So what’s going to happen next? And to who?
Here’s the big winners for January 12-18:
- On January 15, Cortney from Williamstown, New Jersey won a $15,525 jackpot playing the Siberian Storm slots game at BorgataCasino.com.
- On January 15, Rhonda from Belford, New Jersey made a $2 bet playing the Loot’EnKhamun slots game and won $8,432 at BorgataCasino.com.

We all love a bonus and want a bonus. Let’s face it, most of us could really use a bonus. But did you ever think about the word “bonus?” We mean really think about it.
Now, of course a bonus can come at work or be an extra free throw when the other team has gone over the foul limit. But this is the definition that we’re talking about today.
“Something welcome and often unexpected that accompanies and enhances something that is itself good”—from whatever they call the Google dictionary (which is possibly Google dictionary).
That’s the kind of bonus we like here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Especially when we talk about BONUS SLOT DOLLARS®.
Starting today, Thursday, January 22 through Saturday January 24, slots players at Borgata can receive instant bonuses while playing. Think about it. You’re just playing Borgata’s wide selection of slots, enjoying the action and Bam … you win a bonus between $1 and $100 in BONUS SLOT DOLLARS®.
That’s something good, kind of unexpected (well, this blog post aside) and it definitely enhances something already good, which is playing at Borgata.
We always look for themes when we bring you the big online winners for the week. Sometimes we get a particularly hot slots game like Loot’EnKhamen or Borgata’s online players have a pretty good week at BorgataPoker.com.
But when you think about it, that’s pretty much the theme every week. Online play at Borgata results in slots jackpots and poker wins. For the week of January 5 – 11, Borgata online paid out better than $25K in tournament wins and jackpots.
It’s a good theme and we’re sticking with it.
Here’s the big online winners for January 5 – 11.
On January 7th, Dae Kwan from New Jersey won $10,000 from a $5 “Crazy 7’s” side bet at BorgataCasino.com.
On January 11th, Rajwinder from New Jersey took 2nd place out of 358 runners in the GSSS II $75,000 Guaranteed Poker tournament (run with our partner PartyPoker) and took home $9,578 at BorgataPoker.com.
On January 11th, Melissa from New Jersey won $6,636 from a $12.50 bet playing Aztec Gold on her mobile at BorgataCasino.com.
You know what’s a great way to ring in the New Year?
By winning a jackpot online at BorgataCasino.com. It’s almost as good as a major tournament win at BorgataPoker.com.
Looking at the list of big online winners for December 29 to January 4, that’s exactly what happened to our online players. We got some slots wins and a big poker win.
So that’s a pretty good New Year’s resolution. Play for your chance to win big in 2015 at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com. Hey, it’s got to be easier than losing weight or whatever else people come up with for resolutions.
Here are the big winners online for December 29 to January 4.

Among the many different slot themes that can be found on the casino floor at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, you can often find connections that bring the themes together.
Take for example three of Borgata’s newest slots, Tarzan of the Apes from Aristocrat games and LooseGoose and SuperGoose from Ainsworth games.
We all know that Tarzan is the creation of American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs, who wrote about a small boy—that would be Tarzan—who was raised by apes in the African jungle and became a great jungle hero. But did you know Burroughs toyed with other settings for the story, including having Tarzan raised by wild geese? Tarzan would then grow up to hang around golf courses and storm-water retention ponds basically annoying everybody until … No wait, that’s not it.
Actually Tarzan of the Geese protected mythical lost cities where Super Geese protected the Golden Goose that lays the Golden Egg from unscrupulous geese and gold egg hunters with a taste for pâté that threaten scenic waterways … wait, this isn’t right either.
Ok, we admit it. There’s no connection.
Tarzan is Tarzan, Geese are geese. The only connection is that all three of our new slots offer up great slots action and jackpots to players.
BorgataCasino.com offers up a wide variety of online slots and progressive slot jackpots. So many, in fact, that it can be hard for players to pick a favorite.
Except, of course if you were playing with us online during the week of December 21 – 28. That week, there was a clear favorite—our Loot’EnKhamen slots.
There are a lot of slots themes at BorgataCasino.com and this King Tut themed slot is as clever as any. But that’s not what makes a slot a favorite—jackpots make a slot a favorite.
And last week Loot’EnKhamun hit for better than $86,000 in jackpots.
You read that right–$86,000. Check out our list of Big Online Winners for December 21 – 28 to see:
- On December 23, Scott from Newton, New Jersey, had a $10,000 win on the Loot’EnKhamun slots game.
- On December 24, Michael from Hillsborough, New Jersey, received an early Christmas present when he hit a $36,480 jackpot on the Loot’EnKhamun slots game.
- On December 27, Sharon from Wanaque, New Jersey, had a $39,610 winning spin on the Loot’EnKhamun slots game.

So, when’s your name going to make the list?
Here’s the online winners for December 15 – 21:
- On December 15, Linda from Allendale, New Jersey, bet $2 on the Loot’EnKhamun slots game and won $3,976 at BorgataCasino.com.
- On December 21, Ahmad from Monroe Township, New Jersey, took 1st place in the Sunday $50,000 Guaranteed Poker Tournament and took home $10,000 at BorgataPoker.com.

When it comes to a classic, you have to be pretty careful when you start talking about upgrades.
Anyone remember New Coke? Didn’t think so.
Sure, Ms. Pac-Man had better game play than plain old Pac-Man and the CGI King Kong created by Peter Jackson took the old stop/action puppet version Kong of the 1933 original to school. But most of the time, originals stand the test of time.
And that’s especially true of classic old slot themes such as Wicked Winnings from Aristocrat Games. It’s one of the most popular titles ever put out by the Australian game maker. Why would you mess with it?
Well, because they gave it the old Peter Jackson treatment.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, in a national exclusive, is proud to debut Aristocrat’s new Wicked Winnings Legends game, a class III slots dual game package which takes all the fun of the original classic title to the next level. And by national exclusive, we mean that you’ll only find it here in Atlantic City at Borgata.
Wicked Winnings has become a favorite of players mostly because of its … well, wicked features. Filled with flaming skulls, ravens and the famed She-Devil who takes you to the bonus rounds, the game has some of the most vivid graphics, brightest colors and coolest music you’ll find on a slots games.
And you don’t have to lose a bit of it in Wicked Winnings Legends.
Here’s some takeaways from looking at last week’s (December 8 – 14) big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
