Considering that March is Women’s History Month, we don’t know if it was serendipitous (cool word huh?) inevitable or just plain lucky, but Borgata’s big online winners for March 2 to March 8 shows that when it comes to online play, women rule.
That’s three big female winners at BorgataCasino.com and better than $32,000 in jackpots.
Meanwhile, our BorgataPoker.com winners took home another $13K in tournament wins.
Your turn may be next.
Here’s a look at Borgata’s big online winners for March 2 – 8.
– On March 4, Leah from Colts Neck, New Jersey, made a $20 bet playing Game King Double Double Bonus Video Poker. She was dealt 2H 10S JD QD 2C, held JD QD, and drew 10D, KD, AD for a royal flush and a huge $16,000 win.
– On March 5, Barbara from Matawan, New Jersey, made a $13 bet playing SideBet Blackjack and turned it into a $5,018 win.
– On March 7, Ellie from Linden, New Jersey, hit a spin worth $11,440 playing the Loot’EnKhamun slots game.
– GGlady took home $10,834 with a first place finish in the Sunday $50K Guaranteed tournament on March 8, outlasting a field of 313 players.

One of the great words in the English language is festival.
Sure, we all like a party, a gathering, a shindig, a hootenanny, but everybody really loves a festival. They’re just so much … bigger.
We have festivals of lights, of heritage, of various fruits and vegetables and most of all, we have outdoor music festivals.
And this summer, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is going to be festival central as we announce plans for a new outdoor concert venue scheduled to open this June.
It’s name – Festival Park.
That’s right. Borgata, already the leader in live casino concerts in Atlantic City is going full-on outdoor music festival crazy this summer.
And as a leader in entertainment—including Borgata’s partnership with Live Nation Entertainment, one of the best live concert promoters anywhere—we’re already working on a line-up of events that will take Borgata Entertainment to a new level.
“We are thrilled with the opportunity to enhance and grow our already tremendous entertainment offerings through funding by the CRDA and a wonderful partnership with Live Nation,” said Tom Ballance, President and Chief Operating Officer for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. “Upon our entry into the market in 2003, Borgata set the bar for entertainment and nightlife in Atlantic City, so it is only appropriate that we raise it yet again with the addition of this substantial project.”
When it comes to stand-up comedians, you always kind of wonder what they’re going to talk about onstage.
You know, will it be that observational humor—What’s up with kitchen magnets?—or are they the storyteller kind of comic—One time I went to a Red Lobster with my friends and ordered chicken, well let me tell you.
With Kathy Griffin, who appears at Borgata’s Event Center March 14, you know exactly what she’s going to talk about – celebrity dirt.
It is storytelling, but storytelling with backstage celebrity buzz and gossip … you know, the good stuff.
Fans of Griffin and her gazillion Bravo comedy specials—including her 2011 special “Tired Hooker“ filmed on location at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa—get the inside dirt on everything Griffin sees, hears and experiences as she works her way around Hollywood on the D-list.
Which makes it all the more interesting that she’s been mysteriously quiet on the recent controversy at–and now her decision to leave–E’s “Fashion Police.”
We don’t want to hit this too hard on our friendly little blog—you can Google it—but we just have to wonder, how long can Griffin ever stay quiet about anything?
If you’re all about playing for big money, then you’re going to want to clear whatever you’re doing on Sunday, March 15th. That’s the date of the next BorgataPoker.com $100,000 Guaranteed tourney.
For the same $200 buy-in, you get twice the guaranteed prize pool and way more adrenaline rush with every deal.
While the $100K isn’t until the 15th, there’s good reason to play multi-table tourneys right now at BorgataPoker.com. Aside from the obvious chance to conquer a tourney and walk away with a big cash prize, we’re handing out $7,800 in leaderboard cash and prizes. You’ve got until March 31st to make your way to the top, so play now.

Here’s a quick riddle. What would happen if you were taking a boat trip to a candy store when you were suddenly attacked by zombies? Answer: About $11,000 in slot jackpots would be awarded at Borgata’s online casino.
Ok, bad riddle, but a look at our big online winners for February 23 – March 1 shows the wide array of slots themes at BorgataCasino.com that amp up the fun. The jackpots, however, are always amped up as this week’s winners shows once again that small bets can pay off big.
Here’s the online winners for February 23 – March 1:
– On February 23, Janice from Orange, New Jersey, bet $10 while playing the Dawn of the Dead slots game and won $3,045.
– On March 1, Thomas from Newark, New Jersey, turned a $2.70 bet into a $4,063.50 jackpot while playing the Money Boat slots game.
– On March 1, Chris from Clifton, New Jersey, wagered $3 playing the Candy Store slots game and won a $ 4,544.10 jackpot.
– Sveinbinder099 took home $15,210 for a second place finish in the Sunday $100K Guaranteed tournament on March 1.
For a guy who sports the name Laidback, veteran DJ Laidback Luke comes off as anything but.
Consider that he’s just released a new collaboration alongside Tujamo titled “S.A.X.”, just released a 2015 remix of his Mixmash Records classic “Rockin with the Best” and is currently on a world tour—a tour that comes to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa at MIXX March 20 as part of our Winter Music Series.
And that’s just to start 2015 after a very busy 2014. But then, Laidback Luke has been doing this for 20 years, so it’s kind of what you’d expect from the former graffiti artist turned DJ.
Since 1995, Luke has a reputation for evolving with the changing face of dance music whether through technical innovation or just plain artistry. And despite his many, many releases (including three albums, the last being “Cream Ibiza Super You & Me” in 2011), Laidback Luke is above all about the live show, as he explains in a recent interview with joonbug.com.
“When I dove into this music, it was all about the cutting edge, new technology. It’s always been about that. It doesn’t matter if you play with vinyl, it doesn’t matter if you play with CDJs, it matters if you play a good set and people enjoy it. I for one am more of the traditional DJ, so I actually like it when I can see people. I was trained as a traditional DJ, but I’m very much open to new techniques.”
Another week and another about $90,000 in online winnings to report at Borgata’s online casino sites BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
It’s getting to be par for the course.
But if there’s one lesson to be learned from the online winners for February 16 – 22, it’s that while you can bet as much — or as little — as you want, sometimes shooting the works in a big bet, say $30, brings the biggest jackpot of the week.
Food for thought. Here’s a look at the big online winners for February 16 – 22.
– On February 16, John from New York City won 2 jackpots totaling $26,400 while playing the Cats slots game.
– On February 17, Chris from Dayton, New Jersey, hit a $13,530 jackpot while playing the Melon Madness slots game from his mobile device.
