Spring is finally upon us here in Atlantic City and Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, and it couldn’t have arrived a moment too soon.
It’s been a long hard winter and now it’s time to celebrate. And not just the season, but all that spring stands for—rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal, resurrection and regrowth. Call it the five R’s.
You’ll see a lot of posts on the Borgata Blog in the next few months about spring celebrations at Borgata, from spa specials to the Borgata Spring Poker Open and more.
Because nothing says spring like great casino action, fine dining and good stand-up comedy.
Don’t believe us? Then just take a look at Borgata’s special Spring Escape Package running from now until June 25.
Overnight stay in a Classic Room at Borgata.
$100 Dining Credit valid at Borgata’s dining outlets.
Two tickets to the Comedy Club at The Music Box.
All for $199 a night, available Sunday – Thursday. Call (609) 317-1000 to book your package.
There’s a reason we call this the Spring Escape Package. Nothing beats getting away from your cold, day-to-day routine, and having a few laughs—and thrills—with that special someone.
That’s what we call rejuvenation. It’s also spring at Borgata.
April Fool’s Day is one of those great quasi-holidays where we can all have a little bit of fun playing tricks on each other. Which does leave you wondering if Ellie form Linden, New Jersey—our big online winner for the week of March 30 – April 5–wasn’t just a little skeptical when five blue scarabs lined up for her on BogataCasino.com’s Loot”EnKhamun slots this April 1.
After all, that’s a $100,000 jackpot.
Regular readers of these online winner updates know, however, that the Loot’EnKhamun slots regularly hit big jackpots at BorgataCasino.com. And Borgata doesn’t fool around when it comes to jackpots.
The hit was legit, of course, and Ellie, well, she’s $100,000 richer.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for March 30 – April 5.
This week it’s all about Ellie from Linden, New Jersey who loves playing our Loot’EnKhamun slots game. On April 1, she made a fool out of us by spinning for 5 Blue Scarabs (including 3 wilds!) and took home $100,000 from this pay line.
– sansara52 was the big winner this week, taking first place in the Sunday $50K Guaranteed tournament on April 5 for $10,000.
– brownmagic had a good weekend winning $8,288 by taking first in the Saturday Daily $1,000 Guaranteed Rebuy, second in the Saturday Daily $10K, and second in the Sunday $50K Guaranteed.
You have to wonder sometimes what’s going on in Holland’s dance scene that allows it to keep producing some of the hottest DJs on the music scene.
Case in point, Sunnery James and Ryan Marciano who will appear at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s MIXX nightclub tonight, April 10 at 10pm.
As recently as 2008 these two were working retail jobs before they exploded on the dance scene with their funky House and Tribal sound. First the duo conquered their home country and then they took their sound worldwide.
Now their sets are known as one of the best live experiences at clubs around the world, what with their hair flopping and body rockin’ energy that can bring a crowd to a frenzy.
The duo recently reinvented themselves with their “Sexy By Nature” radio show, which features their latest tracks such as “Karausell” and switches between House music and Dutch tribal sounds.
“We just do what we do always,” James tells youredm.com after a recent gig in Miami. “Our sets have very different tracks in them and try to make every style fit, which is what we bring to our production too. Our last track was a little more radio-ready, but now we’re going back to this tribal underground feel, and then the next track is progressive. We look at our sets and we ask ‘What’s missing?’ and then we make it. If you play the same stuff for two hours straight it’s boring.”
No, James and Marciano are never boring. The duo appears with Borgata House DJ Ps1 Friday April 10 at 10pm at MIXX. Advance tickets are $25 and available here.

Through the years, Canada has exported some pretty great stuff across the border to America. Stuff like round bacon, hockey fights, Pamela Anderson.
This May 23 & 24, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa presents one of the funniest Canadian exports when stand-up comedian Russell Peters appears for both nights at Borgata’s Event Center.
If you’re not familiar with Peters, he’s a Canadian comic born of Indian immigrant parents (a fact that comes up a lot in his stand-up act). He’s appeared in a number of Canadian TV shows, but also “Last Comic Standing” here in the states, Comedy Central specials and the movie “Chef” with John Favreau and Scarlett Johansen.
At the moment he’s on a world tour—dubbed the Almost Famous Tour—that’s taking him through the Far East and Europe before launching a North American leg which hits Borgata in May.
As Peters’ world tour shows, while he may be “almost famous” here in the U.S., his 25-year career has gained him a wide following around the world.
“People recognize me; some people recognize my face, some people know my name but don’t know what I look like, and some people just don’t know who I am,” Peters says in a recent interview with thehundu.com as his tour went through India. “So it’s not almost successful, because I’m definitely successful. So I’m just almost famous.”
One of the great things about scheduling Borgata Spa Experience for the first week of spring in March is how nicely it slipped into April, the first true month of spring.
And that means another round of monthly spa specials at Borgata’s spas and salons.
Because let’s face it, we really need a spring revitalization. After 100 feet of snow, sub-arctic wind chills and a winter that just would not quit, it’s time to think spring.
Our April spa specials are all about rejuvenation, revitalization and removing the effects of those harsh winds and biting temperatures. Spring is eternal, after all, when we come out of hibernation (so to speak) get a massage, get a facial, moisturize up and get ready for the harsh sun, blistering heat and dry winds of summer … uhm, well, you know what we mean (April’s nice anyway).
Fortunately, Borgata Spas are always here for you, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you.
And really, who deserves it more than you?
Here’s a look at Borgata’s April Spa, Salon & Barbershop Promotions:
There are few things in this country that can start an argument as quickly as bringing up the simple concept of barbecue.
Sure, we all like barbecue, but just exactly what kind of barbecue are you talking about?
Pork or beef? Sauce or dry rub? If it’s sauce, what goes in it? Vinegar and what?
And what style are we talking about? North Carolina? Kansas City? Memphis? Pretty much any other southern state?
And is it barbecue or BBQ?
Yes, it’s all pretty confusing, but luckily for us at Borgata Casino Hotel & Spa in Atlantic City, we’re pretty much barbecue neutral (Hey, Atlantic City came up with salt water taffy OK?).
So when Old Homestead Steak House presents an Old Homestead Smokehouse BBQ event at 8pm, April 10 as part of the Savor Borgata Series, Chef Romeo DiBona has a lot of leeway in picking the menu.
His choice—Texas style.
For barbecue novices, that largely means beef—and who knows more about beef than Old Homestead?—smoked over some kind of wood such as hickory, pecan or oak … or maybe mesquite. And that’s served with sauce – or a dry rub.
We at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa like to say that “variety is the spice of life.” And that goes for our online offerings at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
Borgata online has scoured the earth for the best in online slots play, offering up a smorgasbord of slots choices from the online slots content providers such as IGT, WMS and bwin.party.
So our big online winners for March 23 – March 29 highlight just how much variety that is as all three turned small bets into big wins on three completely different slots experiences.
So, while variety may be the spice of life, jackpots are the gravy … which you can spice up with the variety … because playing Borgata online … uhm, is like a fine meal?
OK, that got away from us. Let’s just announce Borgata online’s big winners for March 23 – March 29.
– On March 23, Janine from Lincroft, New Jersey, made a $4 bet playing the IGT Battleship game and won a $15,870 jackpot.
– On March 24, Vincent from Middletown, New Jersey, made a $10 bet playing the WMS Invaders from the Planet Moolah slots game and turned it into a $3,616 win.
Grinders already know that April is one of the best months of the year in the Borgata Poker Room as the 2015 Borgata Spring Poker Open gets underway from April 14 to May 1. And the Ultimate Super Satellite for the Open is April 4.
Check out the highlights.
But there’s always a lot more than the tournament action going on in the Borgata Poker Room during Borgata open events as regular cash play never stops.
And that means our regular great poker promotions. Only this April, we’re coming at you with something new—the Borgata Big Four promotion.
Every Wednesday in the Poker Room get paid for your four-of-a-kind. Win up to $500 per hour. A total of $4,000 in bad beat funds will be awarded from noon to 8pm each day.
30 Winners won a total of $4,000 on April 1, the first day of the Borgata Big 4! Be sure to join us every Wednesday in April to join the list of winners.
The introduction of the Borgata Big Four, however, doesn’t mean the Borgata $3,000 High Hand Challenge isn’t still in effect. Every Monday and Tuesday get paid for your high hand. Win $250 if your hand goes unbeaten for 60 minutes, or $100 if you’re knocked out.
A total of $3,000 will be awarded starting at noon each day. Full house or better qualifies for the initial High Hand.
Borgata also continues its monthly Bonus Comp Dollars promotion in April.
