It’s a battle for the ages, or rather, a battle of the ages. Sunday’s Big Game features the old pro against the young upstart, the tale of two great defenses and a golden celebration of 50 years of championship football.
And it could mark the last hurrah for one of football’s all-time greats.
Dramatic is it not?
Fortunately, football drama comes with a solid dose of “hey, time to party,” and none of the stress and seriousness of, oh let’s say, a presidential election.
So we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, and especially at Long Bar, have devised the perfect way to party—signature drinks representing your chosen team. It’s one thing to toast the great career of Peyton Manning, and another to acknowledge the rising star of Cam Newton, but it’s just downright cool to do it with the delectable cocktails designed by Long Bar’s mixologists.
Here’s our starting line-up.
While the Borgata Winter Poker Open is in full swing—running events until February 5—the Borgata Poker Room hasn’t forgotten the rest of the month and we’ve put together a great line-up of tournament events and promotions.
First up is a $250,000 Guaranteed Borgata Almighty Stack tournament set for February 13 – February 16. Spend your Valentine’s Day weekend with a 100K stack and some poker love. The tournament is a $400 + $50 two-day event in Borgata’s Signature Room with four starting sessions.
Day 1A: Saturday, February 13 – 11AM
Day 1B: Sunday, February 14 – 11AM
Day 1C: Monday, February 15 – 11AM
Day 1D: Monday, February 15 – 6PM
Day 2: Tuesday, February 16 – 12PM
From February 19 – February 27, the Borgata Poker Room presents another Deepstacks Challenge series, comprised on nine separate tournament events.
Love going to see a concert, but hate the hassle of stadiums, parking, and fighting crowds? Borgata has easy-to-navigate and intimate performance spaces that attract world-class talent to the region. 2016 is shaping up to be a great year for LGBT-friendly entertainment at the resort, featuring a wide array of performances ranging from the legendary Diana Ross to Josh Groban (and there’s more that have yet to be announced). We rounded up some of our top picks that will have you ordering your tickets faster than you can say “box office“!
Brandi Carlile: The out singer-songwriter, who recently released her newest album, The Firewatcher’s Daughter, and wowed audiences with an amazing performance on Jimmy Fallon, will be bringing her signature country/alternative stylings to Borgata just in time for Valentine’s Day. It’s the perfect mid-winter warm-up. February 12, $45-66, Event Center.
America’s Drag Stars: It’s a Pandora’s Boxx of trouble! Don’t miss this sensational evening of some of the hottest names in drag, featuring Sherry Vine, Ginger Minj, Katya, and, of course, Pandora, as they camp it up for Borgata audiences in the intimate Music Box. With queens like these, you never know what’s going to happen! February 20, $25, Music Box.
You know what a dream bet is? Consider making a bet and then getting paid off 1,000 times what you bet.
Never happens, you say? Well, it did happen to Dean from Phillipsburg, NJ when he made a $10 bet on BorgataCasino.com’s Double Diamond slot game. He hit a $10,000 jackpot.
That’s a 1,000 to one payout. In fact, when looking at our big online jackpot winners for January 18 – 24, the lowest return was better than 500 to one.
That’s what we call dream bets at Borgata’s online gaming sites. What are you dreaming of?
Here’s a look at the big online winners for January 18 – 24:
Players earned Tournament Leaderboard Points for participating in qualifying BorgataPoker.com online tournaments during the month of January and earned Tournament Leaderboard Bonus Points based on cash placed finished, buy-in amount and total number of tournament entries. Congratulations! The top 30 place finishers won monthly leaderboard prizes, and the top 500 place finishers for the January 2016 Tournament…

On Sunday, January 31st at 5pm, step into our $100K Guaranteed No Limit Hold’em Tournament for $200+15. That’s double the guarantee of our regular Sunday $50K GTD for the same $215 buy-in.

Don’t forget, just like our regular Sunday Major, the $100K Guarantee comes with one re-entry option. So load your account just in case you bust out early. You’ll be able to jump back in with a fresh chip stack in a snap.
The $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship event gets underway this Sunday, January 31st at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City. Seated among a large field of would-be champions, you’ll find New Jersey resident Vinny Pahuja proudly wearing a BorgataPoker.com patch. If Vinny looks familiar to you, it’s not just because you might have dined next to him at Fornelletto, one of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s exceptional restaurants. Most likely, it’s because you’ve seen him stacking his way to victory in countless Borgata Poker Open events for the good part of a decade.
“I’ve been coming to Borgata for live events since 2008,” says Vinny from the tournament floor of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. “I don’t think I’ve missed a major tournament in seven or eight years. I’ve always loved the product. I spend so much time here throughout the year that everyone from the floor staff to the dealers are like family. Everyone is so welcoming that there’s a nice comfort level every time I play at Borgata.”
If describing an Atlantic City casino and the people behind the poker room as family sounds a bit bizarre, take a look at Vinny’s tournament success list and his sentiments start to make a whole lot of sense.
Most recently, Vinny, who has won nearly $2 million playing live poker, finished 60th in Borgata Winter Poker Open’s event #1, a $2 Million Guaranteed Deep Stack NLH tournament that saw 5,101 entries compete for a $2,550,500 prize pool. But that’s just one notch on Vinny’s Borgata bedpost.
Vinny’s top tournament win came back in the 2008 Borgata Summer Poker Open when he finished 2nd for $289,000. He also notched a first place victory in September 2014 in the Borgata Poker Open’s $1,500 No Limit Hold’em tournament for $58,491. That win followed his April 2014 first place finishing the Borgata Spring Poker Open’s $1,000 No Limit Hold’em tournament for $43,648.
Horse Players know that when it comes to betting on the ponies, there’s no place quite like Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Racebook.
Actually, in Atlantic City, there’s absolutely no place like our Racebook as we offer the resort’s only pari-mutuel betting. But we don’t rest on our laurels here at Borgata, and we always strive to give our horse players the best in tournament action.
Our next Racebook $10,000 Handicapping Tournament is scheduled for Saturday January 30. That’s a $10,000 guaranteed prize pool with the winner talking home at least $5K (not including your winnings on the races themselves, which you of course get to keep).
Entry into the tournament is a $100 bankroll and $75 entry fee. One hundred percent of the entry fees go to the prize pool.
The tournament is open to the first 200 players that sign up.
The rules are pretty simple. Borgata Racebook will pick nine races from around the country. Tournament players must wager one $10 win bet for eight races and one $20 win bet for one race.
Couldn’t be simpler huh? (betting the races that is, picking winners is another matter).
The player’s with the best picks split the prize pool as so:
