Three New Slots Titles at Borgata

Jurassic ParkImagine this.

You’re walking alone in the forest because the evil queen has really got it in for you—so you pretty much just took off from the castle. She’s got this snarky mirror that’s been giving her a hard time just because you—the fairest of them all—are a lot better looking than her. Like that’s your fault.

Anyway, you’re in the forest when you see seven small shapes approaching through the underbrush. Are they friendly? Will they help you? You look closely as they come into view and realize that yes, they are … seven velociraptors.

Ok, no help there and they start moving on you pretty quick. So you’re running, trying to keep the electric fences on and dodging T-Rex’s and that one dinosaur that spit the poison on the guy from Seinfeld. It’s pretty hectic and all you can think of is it would be great to find some help, like say a big guy with an axe.

So around the bend you go and there he is … a giant white whale named after that bald guy who plays all the electronic music (or is it the other way around?).

Anyway, now there’s guys in boats with harpoons, dwarves, brachiosaurs, and a bunch of bad apples. It’s mayhem.

There’s only one thing it can all mean—bonus spins and jackpots.

Ok, ha ha, we’re having a little fun again with the varied themes you can find in the slots area on the casino floor of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

Instant Bonuses at Borgata November 14 – 16

Borgata Instant BonusThere are few things as great in our modern world as things that are “Instant.”

Think about it. Instant coffee, instant ramen noodles, instant messaging, instant downloads, instant chemistry (between two people), instant gratification…

And for slots players, instant bonuses.

From November 14 to November 16, slot players at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa will receive instant bonuses of guaranteed slots dollars through their My Borgata Card. Each player is eligible for up to 10 wins.

Why? Hey, we’re all busy. And while BONUS SLOT DOLLARS® are great anytime, things are always better when they are instant.

So here’s a little Q&A on how the Borgata Instant Bonus works. Meanwhile, we have to go. Our noodles are ready.

Watch out for Tumbling Reels in Pixies of the Forest

Pixies of the ForestGreat news. We’ve got an entire forest filled with rewards waiting to be uncovered. But don’t worry about digging through piles of dirt to find them. Just let the pixies lead the way.

We’re thrilled to introduce Pixies of the Forest, a new, magical 99-payline (yes, 99!) online slot game from IGT that’s a lot of fun to play. It’s even more rewarding with free bonus cash for our Facebook friends. More on that in a sec.

In Pixies of the Forest, there are loads of rewarding symbols that lead to big payouts but our favorite part is definitely the Tumbling Reels™ feature. With Tumbling Reels, all winning symbol combos disappear from the reel window which makes room for new symbols to drop down from above. It’s huge and it could lead to way more rewards than you’d expect.

That’s just the start. This 99-payline game also has something called Connected Lines™. It offers you 3 for 1 betting, so you can play all 99 Connected Lines for just 33 coins.

Tony Bennett at the Borgata Event Center November 28

Tony BennettTony Bennett is timeless.

Now on the surface that seems like a pretty standard publicist’s type of thing to say about a singer who had his first No. 1 hit, “Because of You,” in 1951 and saw his most beloved song, “I Left My Heart in San Francisco,” released in 1962.

But Bennett—who performs November 28 in the Borgata Event Center—doesn’t need some slick code for “old” or “from yesteryear.” Not when he has the No. 1 album in the country right now in 2014.

That’s right. His No. 1 album Cheek to Cheek, featuring classic duets with the very modern Lady Gaga—you may have seen Bennett’s and Gaga’s recent live televised concert special on PBS—is being hailed by critics for introducing jazz to a new generation.

On the charts at No. 1 in 1951. On the charts at No. 1 in 2014.

Tony Bennett, at 88, is still new.

His secret? He stays true to himself and sings the standards of American music that can touch any generation. And since his revival with young audiences in the 1990s (Anyone remember Tony at the “MTV Video Music Awards” at the height of the grunge era?) he’s sung them with a litany of great artists, old and new, from Christina Aguilera to Willy Nelson to Amy Winehouse to Billy Joel and so many more.

Borgata Online Jackpot Winners: October 27 – November 2

There’s a lesson to be learned from the list of online casino winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com this week.

Just because you hit one slots jackpot, that’s no reason you can’t hit another–on the same day. Check out what happened to Amy from Somerville on the list of online gaming winners for October 27 – November 2.

- On October 27, John from Turnersville, New Jersey, made a $3 bet playing the Double Diamond slots game and won $3,000.

- On October 28, Amy from Somerville, New Jersey, hit a $5,270 jackpot playing the Siberian Storm slots game and followed it up the same day with a $15,600 big win playing Loot’EnKhamun.

- On November 2, Jack from Edgewater, New Jersey, finished first in the Sunday $50,000 Guaranteed Poker Tournament and took home $10,014.

One jackpot is nice, but two is really nice. For Amy, that’s better than $20K of nice.

Wanda Sykes November 7 & 8 at the Borgata Music Box

Wanda SykesWanda Sykes plays Borgata’s Music Box November 7 & 8. So here’s a quick Wanda Sykes quiz.

Which of these three quotes come from Sykes?

“I can hear my mother now: ‘What? Oh, you gonna get a divorce? It’s just that easy, huh? Things get hard, things get rough – you just want to throw in the towel, just like that. Let me tell you something, that’s a bunch of bull. Let me tell you something – your father and I had a shootout, OK? He took one in the arm – Harry, show her where I shot you – now, see that’s love right there. You gotta learn how to work these things out. He was wrong, I shot him – you move on.”

“I don’t understand this whole Elvis thing. There are dead people in my family that we miss and love dearly, but shoot, we don’t dress up like them and do impressions. I’ll show up at the family reunion in a dirty t-shirt and a bald cap – ‘Look, everybody, I’m Uncle Earl.’”

“I love doing stand-up, because it gives me the freedom to say what I really want to say. I think that’s why it’s my favorite thing to do.”

The answer? All three.

Wanda Sykes has carved out an impressive TV career with stints on “The Chris Rock Show,” “The New Adventures of Old Christine,” “Curb your Enthusiasm,” her own late night talk show and a bunch of HBO comedy specials. And that’s not even mentioning films like “Bruce Almighty” and “Monster in Law.” She’s a writer, actor and producer.
