The Borgata Poker Room Does October Right

october-pokerSeptember may have belonged to the 2014 Borgata Poker Open, but there’s always something going on in the Borgata Poker Room and October is shaping up to be a monster month in its own right.

We got poker promotions. We got special tournaments. We got the Borgata Buffet (it’ll make sense in a minute).

In short, we’ve got the best poker action in Atlantic City this October.

The month starts with October Bonus Comp Dollars in effect for the entire month. October 1-31, play 60 hours in the poker room throughout the month and earn $50 in Bonus Comp Dollars. Play 90 hours and earn $75 of Bonus Comp Dollars.

Comp Dollars are good for food, drinks and entertainment. Check out the list of eligible games here.

This October also sees Borgata’s High Hand Challenge on Mondays and Thursdays all month long.

Here’s how it works:

The promotion will begin at noon and conclude at 10:00pm, or when a total of $2,000 has been awarded; whichever occurs first. Full house or better required for the initial High Hand. Initial and subsequent high hands that remain unbeaten for 60 minutes will receive $250. Initial and subsequent high hands that are beaten within 60 minutes will receive $50.

Howling Good Time with Wild Wolf & Wolf Rising at BorgataCasino.com

wild-wolfAt BorgataCasino.com, our goal is to keep you on your toes by adding exciting new games to our online slot game collection. Today, we’ve got two brand new games that will leave you howling like mad – Wild Wolf and Wolf Rising from IGT.

Wild Wolf
Wild Wolf is much like the Wild Wolf game you might have seen on the floor of Borgata in Atlantic City. Only now, you can growl at the moon, sharpen your claws, and snag some big jackpots from home.

When it comes to paylines, Wild Wolf has a lot of them to sink your teeth into. We’re talking 50 paylines, giving you lots of chances to line up symbols and land a big one. Wild Wolf also has the famous Stacked Wilds feature. With each spin, the reels are automatically populated with a bunch of consecutive Wild symbols to help you win more than you’d expect.

Our favorite part about Wild Wolf is the AutoPlay feature. When you activate it, you can sit back and relax while the software does all the spinning for you.

Comic Brian Regan at Borgata’s Event Center October 4

Brian ReganDid you ever see one of those Magic Eye 3D posters that became so popular in the 90s? You know the images that just look like a pattern of colors, but when you look closely—deeply even—a 3D image appears within the picture.

Well, comedian Brian Regan’s comedy is something like that.

Let us explain.

You know Regan—who appears October 4 at the Borgata Event Center—from his more than 25-year career as one of the premiere stand-ups in the country. He’s a regular on late-night talk shows (more than 25 appearances on The Late Show with David Letterman) and Comedy Central and has put out several comedy CDs including “All by Myself” in 2010.

He’s known for his goofy expressions, physical comedy and his dry observational humor (which is pretty clean by the way, so bring the kids) focusing on the little things in life,  from the pressures of spelling bees to how drivers wave each other into lanes.

In other words, he looks deeply at everyday things.

Fall Spa Specials at Borgata

spa_services4_697x210It’s September and the fall season is upon us. And after a long summer of sunbathing, swimming, partying and being outdoors, you need some rejuvenating and healing relief.

Not you personally, necessarily. After all, a long summer of sunbathing, swimming, partying and being outdoors has hopefully left you feeling pretty good—unless you’re doing it wrong.

No, we’re talking about your body, skin and your aching muscles. All that harsh sun, saltwater, exercise and double beef shish kabobs off the barbecue can take their toll. Not to mention driving the kids to their 1,001 summer activities.

No, its your body that needs the break.

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is here to help with our fall spa specials at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa.

All of them are designed to strip away the effects of a summer in the sun and some of the tension that comes with the most active time of the year.

Criss Cross Poker at Borgata

in_bet_gaming_2_largeDid you ever watch cowboys play poker in an old western on TV?

Hand after hand after hand they sit there playing draw poker—one kind of poker until the cows come home (That’s a cowboy pun).

Maybe they were purists, or just didn’t have much imagination, but you have to figure that after about a gazillion hands, those cowpokes would have liked a little variety in their games.

Forward to the 21st century and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

One kind of poker? Please.

In the Borgata Poker Room you can play Hold’em, Omaha and all the variations of H.O.R.S. E. while on the casino floor there’s 20 different types of video poker and eight types of table game poker.

Check out Borgata’s three card poker Royal Millionaire promotion.

We’ve added yet another table poker game in Criss Cross Poker—one of the most unique types of poker you’ll find on any casino floor.

You probably know this form of the game from your poker nights with friends. Well, assuming you and your friends are the more adventurous kind of cowboys.
