The 2014 Borgata Poker Open has started out with another amazing turn-out for its opening event as 4,158 entries were made in Event 1 to start two and a half weeks of tournament action.
That’s better than $2 million on the line for one event and millions more spread over 50 events from September 2 to September 19, including the $3 million guaranteed WPT Borgata Open Championship starting September 14.
But even with thousands of grinders vying for all that cash, there’s one thing poker players are always ready to do—and that’s give a little back to the community.
So this year’s Borgata Poker Open features two charity events with one honoring a long-time friend of Borgata Poker—and the poker world in general—and the other from the newly formed Charity Series of Poker.
Event 14, September 12, is the inaugural Mike Sica Memorial Seniors Tournament to benefit the American Cancer Society.
Sica passed away in November at age 69 from cancer. A WSOP Bracelet holder and a fixture at Borgata poker events, Sica was an East Coast pro known for his big heart, easy smile, trademark coordinated outfits and ever-present container of toothpicks.

Important info to be sure, but perhaps the key point of any wine is where it’s from—not just the country of origin, but the region where it was made.
It’s one thing to say a wine was made in Italy. It’s another to say it was made in the province of Piedmont in the northwest corner of Italy.
Such a wine may be a Piemonte Barolo, one of a range of wines made from the Nebbiolo grape. That alone tells a wine aficionado that this rather light-colored red wine will be wonderfully fragrant, with traditional notes of bitter cherry, earth and even roses.
Or if a wine is made in Tuscany (Toscana), then it comes from an Italian province known for some of the world’s most notable wine regions including Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino. In Tuscany, the Sangiovese grape (red) holds sway, yet many towns may have slightly different versions.
All online slots pay you out when you win, but every now and then you come across a gem that showers you with larger-than-life rewards. Golden Goddess, our new 40-payline online slot game from IGT, definitely fits into the latter category.
A bold statement? Not when you consider that Golden Goddess comes with a very impressive Super Stacks feature which is designed to send even more unexpected payouts your way. More on that in a second.
First, let’s talk about what this game is all about. Golden Goddess puts you right in the middle of a true fantasy world that celebrates the very best of Greek mythology. The 5-reel slot game portrays a romantic story set in ancient Greece. To make the game come alive, there’s an abundance of rewarding symbols including a White Dove, Horse, Man and Goddess. There’s also the familiar 10, J, Q, K and Ace symbols too.
Now, Golden Goddess may be themed around a fantasy world, but the types of rewards you can land are very, very real. It’s all thanks to the slot’s Super Stacks feature. Each reel contains a number of different symbols, but as soon as you hit the spin button, one symbol on each reel is randomly selected to fill every spot on the reel. That creates a Super Stack and when the same symbol ends up hitting on multiple reels, you’ve got a huge opportunity to win a lot of cash.
And we do mean party as we’ve lined up one of the best entertainment weekends you’ll see at any time of year.
Congrats go out to Anthony D. of Rahway NJ, the winner of the first Borgata Social Dash held Saturday August 23.
We’re holding a Borgata Social Dash every Saturday through September 20.
Doesn’t make sense? Well, have you ever felt nostalgic about “Lost in Space“, “Star Trek” or perhaps the best sci-fi show ever—yes, we’re talking “The Jetsons“.
Shows like that may be 50 years old, but they still paint a picture of a future you can believe in. because anyone who has ever seen “The Jetsons” is still waiting to go to work—for two hours a week—in their flying car, leave the housework to Rosie the Robot and pretty much push a button to do anything—like say, play a slot machine.
Ha! Now that’s a segue (or seugeway if you prefer).
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa proudly announces the introduction of THE JETSONS themed slot on our casino floor.
You can meet George Jetson, his boy Elroy, daughter Judy and his wife, Jane in a new slot game from WMS Gaming. THE JETSONS slots features the sights, sounds and characters from the classic TV show in some pretty cool scenarios. For example, players can watch Rosie vacuum up low-paying symbols and replace them with WILDS in the Rosie Feature, or spin the wheel for one of five character-themed bonuses.
In the symphony’s two previous concerts at the Borgata Music Box, things have gone decidedly classical—as symphony concerts usually do. The concerts featured world-renowned soloists, including international superstar pianist Yuja Wang, the symphony’s principal clarinetist Christopher Di Santo, and acclaimed violinist Amy Beth Horman.
But for the final show, the symphony is going all Great White Way.
This concert is dubbed Broadway A-Z, ABBA to Les Miz, and is the Bay-Atlantic Symphony’s Seventh Annual Gala Concert featuring the music that has defined the magic of Broadway for generations.
Broadway A-Z, ABBA to Les Miz features some of Broadway’s greatest all-time hits—from Jerome Kern to Comden and Green—performed by Broadway stars Teri Dale Hansen and Jeremiah James accompanied by the Symphony conducted by Music Director Jed Gaylin.
Songs from “Show Boat,” “Les Misèrables,” “Guys and Dolls,” “The King and I,” “Peter Pan,” “Rent,” “West Side Story,” “La Cage aux Folles,” “Cabaret” and “The Music Man,” will be featured. If that doesn’t cover the full gamut of Broadway history, we don’t know what does.
