There’s something cool about the fact that this year Father’s Day and the first day of summer—aka the summer solstice—fall on the same day this year.
After all, it’s appropriate to take the longest day of the year to really honor Dad, who is always there for us with his gentle wisdom, his infinite patience and his never-ending support.
And for those of you who don’t live in a 1950s family sitcom, he’s the one yelling at you to stop texting all the time and keeps filling up the DVR with John Wayne movies.
Yes, you got to love Dad. It takes a long day to really honor dad.
Of course we at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa are going a step further and taking the whole weekend from June 19-21 to honor dad with a line-up of promotions and events that will just make your father sit up and take notice and possibly, finally come out of the bathroom.
But since it’s also the start of another summer season in Atlantic City—and you know how we love summer here at Borgata— the weekend is just doubly blessed. Not only can Dad try out his latest socks and sandals combos, he can also check out Borgata’s new outdoor venue at Festival Park, featuring The Killers, or see Huey Lewis and The News in the Borgata Event Center.

Another week of online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com and another about $14K in jackpots and poker tournament wins to report.
And once again, you have to marvel at the steady beat of the jackpot players of the Loot’EnKhamun slots experience as Steven from Toms River scored another $3,000 jackpot.
Loot’EnKhamun Slots from PartyGaming is an “All-ways” slots game with 243 virtual paylines in the base game and an amazing 1,024 ways to win during the free spins bonus round.
So there’s a lot of ways to hit and it hits a lot of the time.
Still, the biggest jackpot of the week went to the Zeus III Slot, which is themed after the mythical Greek king of the gods.
Remember when slot machines just had bells and cherries and you tried to just get three in a row? How things have changed.
It’s just a wonderful time to be a slots player at BorgataCasino.com.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for the week of June 1 to June 7:
We’re pretty excited about Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s new outdoor concert venue at Festival Park and we’ve already announced a star-packed line-up of concerts and events for its inaugural summer.
But most of all, we want you to be there.
So we’re also offering the Borgata Festival Park Social Challenge to celebrate the opening of Festival Park and give you a chance to win amazing prizes over the next six weeks.
By completing some simple, fun tasks, you can compete in the Challenge by sharing with friends, answering fun trivia and other activities. Prize packages include Festival Park concert tickets, overnight stays at Borgata, meet and greets with top artists and more.
All you have to do is earn 1,000 points during an entry period to be included in the random drawing. As an added bonus, accumulate the most points between now and July 26 to win the Bonus Leaderboard Prize, which includes two tickets to three Festival Park shows of your choice and an overnight stay.
Some of the ticket packages up for grab include:
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa presents some of the best comics in the world at Borgata’s Event Center and Borgata’s Music Box. Just in the next couple of months you’ll be able to see Jim Norton (July 10 & 11), George Lopez (July 11), Howie Mandel (July 17), Margaret Cho (July 18), Impractical Jokers (July 30 & 31), Jerry Seinfeld (August 7 & 8), Jeff Foxworthy (August 23), Lisa Lampanelli (August 28), Jim Gaffigan (August 29) and Gabriel Iglesias (September 4).
Check out the full comedy lineup.
That’s some serious comedy, but it might leave you with the impression that comedy shows are a special headliner only event here at Borgata.
Au contraire my little chickadee. We do comedy all the time. In fact, most weeknights you can find a show at Borgata’s Comedy Club.
The Borgata Comedy Club—staged at Borgata’s Music Box—offers shows featuring three stand-up comedians on nights we don’t have a headliner on the bill. That’s three comics performing for just $20.
And don’t think these are run-of-the-mill comics. These budding young stars and veteran comics can hold their own with any headliner on the circuit.
Back for its 3rd edition, MIXX Nightclub will host the OUT at Borgata Party on Friday, June 12. Don’t miss your chance to dance the night away at the hottest new party in Atlantic City with music by DJ Escape. And if the great music isn’t enough, we’re bringing in great hosts including Honey Davenport, Satine Harlow and Brooklyn Ford to spice up the night.
Now that we’ve made it a pretty steady weekly thing to check out the big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, some fun favorite things about the list are emerging.
For example, it’s fun to think of cool headlines for the slots winners. You know, the Money Boat came in for Theresa from Cherry Hill. Or the Raging Rhino ran down a jackpot for Maria from Hazlet.
But one of the most fun highlights of the list has to be the different ways the Royal Flush can hit for video poker players—the Royal is often the big jackpot on video poker games.
Most of the time, players get three cards in the Royal, but are tempted to hold something else, like a pair or a non-Royal flush draw.
But sometimes it works out perfectly, as it did for Nicole from Freehold. She got four cards in the Royal playing Game King Double Double Bonus video poker. That’s a no brainer. You go for the fifth card even though she did have a pair.
Seeing that last ace fall into place … well, we think we can still hear her celebrating.
What will you be celebrating at BorgataCasino.com & BorgataPoker.com this week?
Here’s a look at the big online winners for May 25 – May 31:

Tritonal—the American DJ duo of Chad Cisneros and Dave Reed that have become a rising star in the EDM world—hits Borgata’s MIXX Nightclub June 27 and the timing couldn’t be more perfect.
With their recently dropped track “Untouchable,” done in collaboration with another Multiple DJ force Cash Cash, the duo is back on the cutting edge—as if they’d ever been off. Collaborations between vocalists and DJs are always noted, but lately more and more DJs themselves have been working together producing a string of EDM hits.
“Untouchable” is a melodic, big room anthem that features James Abrahart, also known as J Hart, on vocals.
Tritonal previously remixed Cash Cash’s “Surrender,” but this time the two DJ teams hit the studio together.
“The song came from such an inspirational place,” Reed and Cisneros told Billboard.com, calling the week-long collaboration a year highlight. “Upon finishing, we all felt we’d written a special one.”
It’s all pretty normal for the Texas-raised DJs who have been putting out hits since they formed their duo in 2008 after meeting in an online music chatroom. Of course, back then they were known as producers of trance, but they’ve spent the last six years moving steadily into the EDM scene with a progressive house sound.
“We came up as trance artists and we still love trance,” Cisneros told edmsauce.com in a recent interview. “It just got to a place where it felt like we were starting to do the same thing. At the end of (the album) “Piercing the Quiet” we were doing that electro-trance thing and we were just kind of done with it.”
