August is fast approaching and the Borgata Poker Room, along with BorgataPoker.com, has put together one of the best months of tournament play in a non-Borgata Open month.
By non-Borgata Open month, we mean a month that doesn’t include one of Borgata’s five seasonal open events such as the Borgata Poker Open scheduled for September 2-19.
Grinders getting ready for that event will have plenty of chances to sharpen their tournament skills in August.
First up are a series of summer tournaments on Sundays, which we’ve cleverly dubbed Sundays in August. A mix of four different tournaments will be offered at noon each Sunday during the month.
We’re into the third week of Sizzlin Summer, and while we’ve already handed out $5,500 in cash to 240 lucky winners, there’s still plenty of time to cash in. There are seven more weekly draws happening, but we won’t keep repeating ourselves and tell you that you’ve got a new chance to win every Tuesday, just by playing casino games and poker games during the week leading up to it.
At Borgata, we’ve hammered that point home several times. But what we haven’t talked about so much are the two big monthly giveaways.
On August 5th, we’re drawing 45 winners and awarding them with big prizes – the kind that will make this their most “Sizzlin” summer yet. First place gets a Sea-Doo Spark & Trailer. Second place walks away with a beach house rental. Third and fourth place will get to head to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for a luxury weekend away. There’s a foosball table, tennis set, pool table, kayak, another hotel stay and so much more.
It’s only one of the most classic card games ever and the Borgata Poker Room remains the leading poker room in Atlantic City.
Add to that the Borgata Poker Room’s daily poker tournaments and 24/7 live cash games, there’s always a poker seat open for would-be players.
But, that hardly scratches the surface of the poker action at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. You see, what is a live game against other players in the Borgata Poker Room is also a table game on the casino floor and a host of video poker options in the slots areas of Borgata.
Borgata offers more than 20 different variations of video poker. Borgata also offers Four-Card Poker, Flop Poker, Bonus Poker, Pai Gow Poker, Caribbean Stud Poker, Texas Hold’em and Let It Ride as well as our newest entry, Three-Card Poker.
Ok, so that’s a lot of poker options to choose from, so here’s a plug for the quick action and huge bonus payouts of Three-Card Poker.
Like most poker table games, it’s all in how you bet as you can play against the dealer, play for bonus payouts on hands or play for a big money six-card jackpot with a top prize of $1 million.
Yes, a six-card jackpot in a three-card hand with a top jackpot of $1 million.

Coming right off Borgata Poker’s Deepstacks Challenge - currently underway (July 7-20) – comes the $150,000 guaranteed PocketFives Poker Tournament July 27 to July 29 in the Borgata Poker Room.
PocketFives.com is an online poker forum and news site and one of the best poker info sites in the country. PocketFives is partnering with Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa to offer up a $350 + $50 Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em Tournament with opening days July 27 and again July 28. The tournament carries a $150,000 prize pool guarantee.
“I am extremely excited to have the opportunity to present an event like this for our members,” said PocketFives co-founder Adam Small. “As the market leading casino property in Atlantic City, Borgata is the perfect place for us to host a live poker tournament. The PocketFives New Jersey community has been incredible since the launch of internet gaming and this event, along with the party, will be a great way to show our appreciation and give back to them.”
Poker? Slots? Or table games? At Borgata, it doesn’t matter what you play for the next two months. As long as you play online at BorgataPoker.com or BorgataCasino.com, you’ll be able to take part in our Sizzlin Summer Sweepstakes, a promotion that’s handing out $100,000 in cash and prizes through weekly giveaways and two big monthly draws.
On the line this week? $2,500 in cash. And each week, the cash prize pool gets bigger, jumping up to $3,000 in week 2 and all the way up to $10,000 in week 9.
You don’t have to play online to enter. Just log in to your Borgata account, click the Promotions tab, and opt in to the promo. That gets you 5 entries to the weekly draw and you can opt in for 5 more entries every 24 hours – without playing at all.
Summer is always hot in New Jersey. But at Borgata, it’s downright on fire. We’re thrilled to bring you Sizzlin Summer, a $100,000 sweepstakes promotion that’s designed to make your summer incredible – week after week after week.
Sizzlin Summer begins this week with a whopping $100,000 in cash and prizes on the line at BorgataPoker.com and BorgataCasino.com. Over the next two months, we’re drawing for thousands of dollars in cash every week, and we’re holding two monthly draws for prizes that most people only dream about.
There are three ways to earn entries to the weekly draws and the first is super-simple. Just log in to your Borgata account, click the Promotions tab, and opt in to the promo. When you do, you’ll earn 5 entries to the weekly draw. You can do that every 24 hours.
We know that you don’t necessarily live your entire poker world online. Sure, our $10K nightly and $50K weekly tournaments are big draws, but so is the incredible land-based action at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City. This month, we’re excited to combine online thrills and live-action adrenaline rushes to bring you Deepstacks Challenge and the $150K PocketFives Open.
Deepstacks Challenge Satellites Now Running
How deep are you willing to go to pocket your share of $50,000? With the Deepstacks Challenge satellite series, you won’t need to reach deep into your pockets at all. From now until July 10th, we’re running satellites for seats in the Deepstacks Challenge $50,000 Guaranteed tournament, set to get underway at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa on July 12th. Each satellite takes place nightly at 8pm and guarantees to pay out at least one seat in the live tournament.
When Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa promises grinders a Bad Beat Jackpot Frenzy, we aren’t kidding around.
Take the action on Wednesday, July 2, when Borgata’s Small Bad Beat Jackpot hit twice—in five minutes. That’s right, better than $95,000 paid out in just five minutes.
The first hit came in the Borgata Poker Room at 3:30pm in a hand that really proves how Borgata’s Bad Beat Frenzy—which lowers the minimum hand to win the small jackpot—has changed the landscape.
Player Steven Belly was holding pocket 10’s while Jasper Chan was sitting on pocket jacks. Then came a flop of three aces, giving each a full boat.
Belly’s lesser boat wins the Small Bad Beat Jackpot and $20K and Chan Took home 10K. Eight other players at the table get $2,500 each.
Borgata poker players have been left with an interesting choice since BorgataPoker.com went live last November.
Do I get dressed, hit the Borgata Poker Room and stare down the guys I’m going to be winning from? Or, do I just relax at home, order in some pizza and play online all night and stare down some avatars?
Well, here’s a chance at the best of both Borgata poker worlds. Introducing the Borgata Poker Deep Stacks Challenge, which combines live play in the Borgata Poker Room with online play at BorgataPoker.com.
Borgata is also bringing back the Leaderboard Promotion, new and improved. Players have a shot at a free $3,500 value seat to the Borgata Poker Open Championship in September to the leaderboard winner. The series includes 14 different tournaments from July 7 to July 20.
