At Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, we know that even as our guests take in all we have to offer from great nightlife and dining to the best casino action on the East Coast, some of our guests just want to work.
And we’re not talking about their jobs.
We’re talking about working your abs, your cardio system, your lats and everything else gym rats love to work. So at Spa Toccarre, Borgata provides guests with The Pump Room, a state-of-the-art hi-tech fitness center that offers the best workout you’ll find, the best fitness equipment available and the best overall experience complete with spectacular views of Atlantic City.
And if that’s not enough, we’re about to make The Pump Room better.
The Pump Room will be closed from December 1 to December 12 as it receives a major upgrade that will include installation of all new cardio equipment (from Life Fitness), a new stretching station and more. The upgrade replaces much of The Pump Room’s original equipment form its opening 11 years ago.
And that’s not even mentioning a complete redecorating with new wall coverings, carpets and ceiling tiles.
Here’s a look at what we’re adding to The Pump Room.
Believe it or not, there’s actually some small controversies surrounding the unique and wonderful holiday of Thanksgiving.
Oh, sure we all know that the pilgrims and Native Americans got together about 1621 and celebrated a great feast and then watched some high school football before going out at midnight to get great bargains to start their Christmas shopping. And it was in 1863 that Abe Lincoln declared the first official national Thanksgiving Day along with the proclamation that the Detroit Lions always play a game on the holiday.
But to tell the truth, there’s a lot of controversy over that first Thanksgiving Day–especially the menu. The pilgrims probably ate some turkey, but venison (deer) was the likely main course along with a lot of seafood and also vegetables from their great harvest that year (which was the reason for the whole thing).
What’s not clear is if they had pie. Records show the pilgrims had access to a lot of wild fruits and berries growing around New England, but whether they baked them into a flaky crust and served them with coffee and ice cream is anybody’s guess.
Think of it—a pie-less Thanksgiving. Oh those poor, poor pilgrims.
Fortunately, we in the modern age don’t have to put up with that thanks to the Borgata Baking Co., which is offering up a special selection of Thanksgiving pies.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa offers up so much to do, sometimes it can be a little hard keeping track of it all.
Great nightlife, fantastic dining, amazing shows and entertainment, luxurious rooms, decadent spas, heart-pounding casino action, the best live poker room on the East Coast—the list goes on and on.
So it’s no wonder people like to play here. But those very amenities that make Borgata a great playground also make it the perfect place to do business.
Let us explain.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is the premiere meeting and event venue in Atlantic City and for that matter the country. Just ask the folks at Smart Meetings magazine, which has named Borgata a winner in its 11th annual Platinum Choice Awards for meeting venues in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean.
Smart Meetings’ readers pick the winners based on venues that set exemplary standards in a range of categories, including ambiance, amenities, breadth of resources, facility quality, guest services, meeting space, meeting packages, recreational activities, restaurant and dining facilities, and technical support.
That’s a lot of categories and Borgata excels at them all.
You know what’s better than winning a poker tournament online at Borgatapoker.com? Winning two—in the same night.
It’s almost as good as turning a $20 bet on online video poker into a $16K or hitting a $34,000 slots jackpot at BorgataCasino.com.
Big wins are hitting all the time at Borgata’s online sites, as this week’s online winner rundown shows. The next one could be yours.
Here are the big online gaming winners for November 3 – 9.
- On November 3, John from Matawan, New Jersey, made a $20 bet playing Game King Bonus Poker. He was dealt QD 10D JD 6S KD, held QD 10D JD KD, and drew AD for a royal flush and a $16,000 win.
- On November 6, Asher from Brooklyn, New York, won both the nightly $5,000 and $10,000 Guaranteed Poker Tournaments for a total win of $3,092.08.
- On November 8, Michael from Lumberton, New Jersey, hit a $34,000 jackpot playing the Monopoly Level Up Plus slots game.
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.
There 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.
Great 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 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.
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.
