All eyes might be focused on Las Vegas for the big series going on in the heart of the desert, but the spotlight is about to shift to Atlantic City as the Borgata Summer Poker Open gets underway this July at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
This is the big series you’ve been waiting for, right here in New Jersey. And BorgataPoker.com is your best bet for grabbing seats in these three big tourneys:
- $1 million Guaranteed Kick-off event
- $300,000 Almighty Stack Tournament
- $1 million Guaranteed Summer Poker Open Championship
For many music fans, Bob Dylan is a legend. The 76-year-old Dylan has had a career that’s hard to quantify into words. Folk music pioneer, socially influential protest singer, pop music star and rock music star (you know, when he went electric).
His recording career, spanning more than 50 years, has explored the traditions in American song—from folk, blues, and country to gospel, rock and roll, and rockabilly to English, Scottish, and Irish folk music, embracing even jazz and the Great American Songbook.
This is one guy we’re talking about here.
When Bob Dylan rolls into the Borgata Event Center Sunday July 10, you can expect a true master to embrace his latest incarnation – that of the Great American Songbook. That’s because his last two albums – the 36th and 37th studio albums of his career – were Shadows in the Night, featuring ten songs written between 1923 and 1963 and recorded by Frank Sinatra and Fallen Angels, which was described as “a direct continuation of the work of ‘uncovering’ the Great Songbook that he began on last year’s Shadows In the Night.”
Borgata Poker has had a long history with the Cabot Creamery Co-op of hosting a charity poker tournament to raise money for the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, Southern Branch.
For this year’s Eighth Annual “Put a Bad Beat on Hunger” charity tournament, we’re incorporating the event as part of the Borgata Summer Poker Open.
Event 3 of 20 main events for the open (July 12 to July 29), the “Put a Bad Beat on Hunger” tournament is scheduled for Friday July 15 at 4pm. The tournament is a $250 + $30 + 20 buy-in, with that last $20 being donated to the Community Food Bank. In addition, the winner receives a $3,500 entry voucher into the WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship in September.
Love Guns N’ Roses? Then you probably already know they’re coming to New Jersey on July 23rd. But before you open up your wallet and pay for tickets like everyone else, why not play for them instead?
We’re giving away 25 big prizes including two tickets to the Guns N’ Roses Concert at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, a Slash autographed guitar, CDs, t-shirts, Bonus Dollars, and so much more.
If you want a shot at winning, go to BorgataCasino.com between July 6th and 10th on your Mac or PC, head to the Promotions tab, and opt in to the Guns N’ Roses Giveaway promotion for a free entry into our drawing.
Is there anything more American – and more summer appropriate – than a nice steak dinner? Americans have had a love affair with steak ever since cowboys ran herds of cattle across the prairies to places like Kansas City and St, Louis.
Or at least we’ve had the love affair with beef ever since people started watching movies about cowboys running cattle across the prairies with guys like John Wayne yelling things like “We’re burning daylight.”
We know a lot goes into getting us a prime cut or steak on our tables. And at Borgata, we understand steak like no other place on the East Coast.

In case you were wondering, yes, Jane Lynch can really sing.
The actress, best known for her stint in the insanely popular Fox television hit Glee, took to the Borgata Music Box stage on Saturday evening, along with a bunch of her friends in harmony, to perform her touring set aptly titled See Jane Sing. It was a delightful series of song with quite a punch of darkly humorous sarcasm weaved throughout. Ms. Lynch’s lighthearted night of entertainment was just what the doctor ordered…
Borgata’s online sites at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com racked up another double $10K week as our top jackpots at both sites hit $10,000.
Sure, there are a whole bunch of other jackpots for the week, but there’s just something nice about hitting the $10K mark.
At BorgataCasino.com, the Money Boat came in for Kenneth from Englishtown New Jersey, won $10,836.00 after placing a $7.20 bet on the Money Boat slot game.
Fourth of July Weekend is one of the biggest weekends of the year in Atlantic City and at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, and that means we do it up right. We’ve put together an amazing line-up of events, concerts, shows and excitement fit for a shore blow out in honor of our nation’s birthday.
And, of course, that means fireworks as Atlantic City is putting on two fireworks programs for the weekend this year, First up is a beach and boardwalk show July 3, then on July 4th, the fireworks spectacle will be held in Atlantic City’s Marina District, which makes Borgata the best place to view the show in the resort.
