When you think of the 1990s—or more specifically, Thursday nights in the 1990s—many of us have the same memory. We think about sitting on the big couch at Central Perk and hanging with our friends. Or maybe it was up in Monica’s apartment.
Of course, it wasn’t always easy keeping up with the friends. There was Rachel’s current hairstyle to keep track of, Monica’s cleanliness to deal with, Chandler’s jokes, Phoebe’s general zaniness.
And then there was the whole on-again, off-again, on-again, off again and finally on-again relationship between Ross and Rachel. Yet for a good 10 years, we were there every Thursday night.
And the whole time we were thinking, “Gee, this would make a great slot machine theme.”
Didn’t think that? Well, you should check out Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s ’s new progressive slot machine Friends, based on the hit sitcom which ran from 1994 to 2004 and then in reruns ever since.
The Friends slot from Bally Scientific Games captures a time in American culture when our biggest worry was whether Monica and Chandler could keep their relationship a secret or if Joey would get an acting job. It was a simpler time when we didn’t even notice that Monica lived in a Manhattan apartment the size of an airplane hangar and never worried about rent.
And it’s all captured in these great bonus features:
Players earned Tournament Leaderboard Points for participating in qualifying BorgataPoker.com online tournaments during the month of February and earned Tournament Leaderboard Bonus Points based on cash placed finished, buy-in amount and total number of tournament entries. Congratulations! The top 30 place finishers won monthly leaderboard prizes, and the top 500 place finishers for the February 2016 Tournament…

For the first time ever, Borgata was a corporate sponsor at the 2016 Human Rights Campaign’s Greater Philadelphia Gala on Saturday, February 27. The popular event, which featured many of the country’s premiere civil rights leaders,was held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown and included a silent auction and dinner.
Borgata’s Senior Vice President of Operations, Joe Lupo, who was in attendance, said that the resort’s support of the HRC was natural for Borgata.
“It stems from the very beginning that we want to create an environment that promotes equality for our customers and employee base,” Lupo said. “[The HRC] fit cohesively with this vision.”
Garden State Super Series IV is now underway and it’s proving to pay off massively for poker players in New Jersey. All five tournaments on Sunday’s opening day schedule featured more prize pools exceeding all guarantees.
Here’s a look at what happened in last night’s five big tournaments:
- GSSS #1 featured a final prize pool of $14,100, eclipsing the $7,500 that had been guaranteed. The NLH Slow Grind saw PunisherPete claim the first place prize of $2,820.
- GSSS #2, our biggest tournament of the night with $75,000 guaranteed, paid out an impressive $94,400. A four-way final table deal distributed $43,829 among ninjaG0 ($11K), ABH70 ($11K), floppynuts ($11K) and jakep474 ($10,829).
If the name ninjaG0 sounds familiar, it’s because he’s found significant success in a number of BorgataPoker.com tournaments, including several Sunday $50k Guaranteed tournaments and Daily $10K Guaranteed events. His total earnings prior to last night’s big win approached $18,000.
- GSSS #3 saw a final prize pool of $32,500, well above the $20,000 that was promised. A final table deal saw Big_Daddy and treetrap split $10,643 almost down the middle.
- GSSS #4, a $7,500 guarantee, got fairly close to doubling its guaranteed prize pool, paying out $13,750. Deezer took first place, adding $2,675 to his bankroll.
- GSSS #5 paid out $16,000—that’s $6,000 above the $10,000 that was guaranteed. Congrats to jmzit2u on his first place finish.
The Garden State Super Series IV runs through March 13th with several tournaments on the schedule each day. Head to the GSSS IV tournament page for all the info and discover which events you’ll conquer next. Remember, there is over $1 million in guaranteed prize pools for GSSS IV events!
For most of us, sugar is just something we keep in a bowl on the kitchen table. The extent of our creativity with it usually involves simply putting it on corn flakes or in our coffee.
For cooks and bakers, however, sugar is an ingredient and behind every decadent dessert and sweet treat there is. But it’s still pretty basic. Make dessert, add sugar.
Then there are master chefs, like Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s Executive Pastry Chef Thaddeus DuBois. For him, sugar isn’t something you keep in a bowl or sprinkle on cereal. Well, maybe it is if he’s having a quick breakfast, but for DuBois, sugar is also a medium, a material that can make exquisite art and a substance of profound beauty.
What we’re talking about are sugar works or sugar sculpture. It’s the art of spinning sugar into exquisitely intricate and delicate creations. The techniques have been featured on about a gazillion cable TV food shows, yet for most of us they are still as mysterious as Kanye West’s Twitter feed.
On Saturday March 19, however, Dubois and the Savor Borgata Series present “Spring Sugar & Easter Sweets“ at 1pm in Studio 1 at the Event Center.
