When Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa first launched its online brands BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, we expected there would be a lot synergy between online play and live play at Borgata.
You can usually see that in our promotions tabs with Play and Stay promotions and others, but where it really comes home is in online satellite play at BorgataPoker.com. The Borgata Poker Open got underway here in Atlantic City September 8 and BorgataPoker.com has been offering up ways to get into the big events—like the $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Open Championship—since August 24.
And that paid off for JOEYdaMUSH and Flawlessbinkage, who each won $3,500 seats into the televised $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship event through our online satellites.
So that’s a $3,500 win online that could lead to a huge payout at the championship, along with the chance to play alongside some of the best pros in the country.
Now that’s synergy.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for September 7 – September 13:
– On September 7, Alan from Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey, made an $5 wager on the Loot’Enkhamun slot game and won $5,115.50.
If you think our weekly $50K Guarantee is big, wait until you see what’s happening at Borgata in Atlantic City on September 20th. That’s Day 1A of the televised $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship. It’s the big one in the Borgata Poker Open and lots of online poker players have already secured a spot in it.
The buy-in for the tournament is $3,500, and BorgataPoker.com is guaranteeing a minimum of one seat for each of the five remaining online satellites.
On the first weekend of online satellites, two players secured seats into the Championship. With five more chances this weekend to steamroll a $405 entry in an online Super Satellite into a coveted seat in the live tournament, there should be a lot of online action.
This weekend, you’ll find Super Satellites on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 5:45pm, with each one guaranteeing at least one seat for every 10 players in the tournament. Can’t make it for 5:45? There’s another Super Satellite at 7:30pm on Saturday and Sunday with the same 1 in 10 shot at moving on.
For all the important info, check out the Borgata Poker Open page.
Ready for fall? We are. In fact, though it’s technically still summer, all those pumpkin spice lattes have us dreaming about falling leaves and a nice, comfortable chill in the air.

There was a time when tequila was thought of as a drink to enjoy as a quick shot—paired with lemon and salt—or in a Margarita, and that was pretty much it. Tequila wasn’t a drink you had at meals, or when enjoying hors d’oeuvres. The culinary world hadn’t yet embraced the nectar of the agave plant.
But that kind of thinking is long gone, and pairing food with fine tequila has become an art all its own.
At Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Gypsy Bar—our renowned Tequila bar—it’s also an art that Borgata has mastered, along with the equally important skill of creating Tapas.
Tapas are a wide variety of appetizers, or snacks, in Spanish cuisine that have become so popular, they are often combined and mixed and matched to make a full meal.
You’ve probably figured out where we’re going with this.
The Savor Borgata Culinary Series presents Tapas and Tequila at Borgata’s Gypsy Bar at 4pm Saturday, September 19. Enjoy Tapas paired with Tequila featuring Borgata Special Diamond Tequila.
We hate to say it, but sometimes the names of our online slots games don’t always live up to their promise at BorgataCasino.com.
Hear us out.
Michale form Newark was playing Double Diamond slots when he made a $10 bet. So he was probably hoping he’d double his money, ala the name Double Diamonds.
Nope. He multiplied his money 1,000 times and hit a $10,000 jackpot. Kevin from Colonia edged him out by winning $10,006 on Super Luck Spin mobile slots, which did live up to its name.
Sorry Michale, you’ll just have to live with your $10K.
Here’s a look at Borgata’s big online winners for August 31 – September 6:
– On September 1, Kevin from Colonia, New Jersey, made an $18 wager on the Super Luck Spin mobile slot game and won $10,006.
– On September 2, Robert from Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, made an $0.80 bet on the Yahtzee slot game and won a $3,500 jackpot.
– On September 5, Michale from Newark, New Jersey, made a $10 bet on the Double Diamond slot game and hit a $10,000 jackpot.
New England or Buffalo? Detroit or Minnesota? Dallas or Philadelphia? Making your picks online could lead to your biggest score yet.
Instead of sitting on the sidelines and playing armchair quarterback, we invite you to jump onto the field for a chance to win up to $2,000 Bonus Dollars every week.
With the Borgata Pick the Pros Online Challenge, we’re putting up $200,000 in Bonus Dollars throughout the course of the pro football season. When your team wins, you can too.
Just go to the Pick the Pros Online Challenge page and log in using your Borgata Online Gaming account name and date of birth. Then, select your picks for the Sunday and Monday pro football game winners, along with the combined score of the tie-breaker game.
That’ll do it. Each Thursday, we’ll award the player who got the most picks correct with $2,000 in Bonus Dollars. Plus, just for entering, we’ll toss your name into a drawing where 400 players will share in $8,000 Bonus Dollars, earning $20 Bonus Dollars each.
It all adds up to $10,000 in Bonus Dollars each week. If you want to win, you need to play, so head over to the Pick the Pros Online Challenge page and get this week’s picks in before Sunday’s kickoff.
There was a time, back in the early ’80s, when Australian singer and actor Rick Springfield seemed to rule the world. Not only was he the singer behind the mega-hit “Jessie’s Girl,” he also played Dr. Noah Drake on the soap “General Hospital,” which back in the ‘80s had a following with young women—not to mention older women—that, looking back, is a little hard to explain. But trust us, it was big. Very big.
So you would think that when Rick Springfield takes the stage at Borgata’s Festival Park September 12—with guests Loverboy and The Romantics—that it would be a night of nostalgia for the 66-year-old Springfield.
Not exactly. This is the Rick Springfield currently starring in the film “Ricki and the Flash” with Meryl Steep and coming off a notable spin as Dr. Irving Pitlor on “True Detective.” And it’s the same Rick Springfield with an upcoming new album “Rocket Science.” He’s also the author of the novel “Magnificent Vibration” and his 2010 memoir ”Late, Late at Night” is considered one of the best rock memoirs of all time (though we don’t expect any dramatic readings at Festival Park, just music.)
Could it be that Rick Springfield is trying to put the classic “Jessie’s Girl” and Noah Drake behind and rule the world again?
“Hopefully, some of the new work I’m involved in is changing that perception,” Springfield recently told the Miami Herald. “If not, I’m good with the “Jessie’s Girl”/Noah Drake thing.”
When Springfield takes the stage at Festival Park, it will be a mixture of new and old.
The Atlantic City Seafood Festival is back this weekend at Atlantic City’s Bader Field and as always, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is participating and backing this great resort tradition.
The two-day festival, September 12 & 13 is an extravaganza of food and entertainment that celebrates the treasures of the Atlantic Ocean, while highlighting the East Coast’s favorite sea side city. More than 50 restaurants and culinary personalities are participating.
That includes Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa Executive Chef Thomas Biglan who appears at the Seafood festival Saturday, September 12 at 4pm for an interactive cooking demonstration.
The stated goal of the festival producers is to give event attendees a reason to spend the day in Atlantic City. Whether it’s trying local restaurants, sipping Jersey beers, paddle boarding, cooking with local chefs, playing in the sand or getting a proper wine education, you’ll find yourself lost in the Atlantic City Seafood Festival and all that it offers.
The festival also includes a Chowder Cook off to benefit the Community Food Bank of New Jersey. After an in-house contest at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, Borgata Buffet Chef Angel Torres will be representing Borgata in the cook off.
Looking over the top online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, we came close to hitting a headline writer’s dream.
We all know how creative online poker players at BorgataPoker.com are in choosing their screen names. So when we saw that Turkeyleg was the winner of $10,000 in the Sunday $50K tournament, we started thinking of the possibilities.
Turkeyleg outruns the field at BorgataPoker.com’s $50K.
Turkeyleg kicks it for a $10K win.
Turkeyleg walks away with the top prize.
But alas, the big jackpot of the week went to Patrick of Plainsboro who turned a $3 bet on the Candy Store slots at BorgataCasino.com into $25,768.50.
So we’ll have to go with Patrick is like a kid in the candy store—a kid with $25K.
It’s just not the same. But hey, congrats all around. What headlines will they make this week at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com?
Congratulations to our 36 winners from the BorgataPoker.com Quarterly Freeroll Invitational Tournament on Sunday, September 6, 2015
