So what are you doing in July?
It’ll be here before you know it, with warm beach weather, barbecues and a host of great concert tours crisscrossing the country.
And as always, when it comes to concerts, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa leads the way at the Jersey Shore with tickets for five great July concerts going on sale March 18.
Our 2016 summer lineup of shows and concerts is shaping up to be another standout year for Borgata Entertainment. As always, Borgata offers a diverse lineup to suit any musical taste, whether it’s jazz with George Benson (July 23), legendary rock and blues stars Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy together on July 23, classic 80s rock with Huey Lewis and the News (July 24), traditional beloved standards with Tony Bennett (July 29) or even a-cappella madness with Straight No Chaser (July 29 & 30).
Here’s a look at the concerts going on sale March 18:
Jazz guitarist George Benson is best known for his 1976 album, the mostly instrumental album “Breezin,’” and for the vocal cut “This Masquerade,” which won the Grammy for Record of the Year. That album introduced his soulful jazz stylings to the mainstream, and set off a career that spanned decades. You’ve heard Benson playing on tracks from Stevie Wonder (“Another Star”) and his second breakthrough album “Give Me the Night” in 1980. He’s been a staple on the smooth jazz charts ever since and brings his latest tour to Borgata July 23.
Jeff Beck and Buddy Guy
Jeff beck is one of the most celebrated rock guitarists of all time. Buddy Guy is one of the all-time great blues guitarists. Beck ranks 5th on Rolling Stone’s list of the “100 greatest guitarists of all time.” He’s played with a hall of fame list of artists and is one of three noted guitarists that played with The Yardbirds along with Eric Clapton and Jimmy Page. Guy ranked 30th on Rolling Stone’s list and is cited as a major influence for pretty much every famous rock guitarist you’ve ever heard of including Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page and Jeff Beck. When the two take the stage at Borgata July 23, the rock gods will rejoice.
Our big online winners list for the week of February 29 to March 6 reflects the excitement and action of the Garden State Super Series IV, running from February 29 to March 13 on BorgataPoker.com.
And that means pretty impressive showings from our players Moose4Life, who racked up better than $23K in wins and smoothustler who earned better than $23K as well. Aside from their cool screen names, that’s $46,000 in winnings for BorgataPoker.com’s top two players.
And that combined just beat out our top winner at BorgataCasino.com as Steve from Bayonne, New Jersey, made a $2.50 bet on the Biker Pigs jackpot slot game and won $41,372.71.
Bayonne Steve’s jackpot is one of the highest we’ve ever reported on our weekly updates.
What can we say? As great as the action is at BorgataPoker.com and at our special events like the GSSS, sometimes the Biker Pigs rule the road.
Here’s a look at the top online winners for February 29 – March 6:

The big story over the weekend was GSSS #30, the $100,000 Guaranteed tournament that saw a final prize pool of $110,600, fueled by 553 entries.
The title of the No Limit Hold’em tourney went to online poker player smoothustler, who won $19,100.62 for his first place victory. And while definitely a big deal, even more impressive is the fact that smoothustler is somewhat of a Garden State Super Series juggernaut.
Since March 2nd, smoothustler has cashed in eight Garden State Super Series events, final tabling six of them. And it’s not just Texas Hold’em that the New Jersey online poker player has proven to be a pro at. In addition to NHL, he’s crushed PLO and 7Stud events, earning over $23,000 in winnings so far.
This isn’t the first Garden State Super Series that smoothustler has done exceptionally well in. Last October, he won over $5,000 in two GSSS III events.
Instead of watching smoothustler conquer more GSSS IV tourneys this week, jump in and stop him in his tracks. There’s lots more on the schedule as Garden State Super Series continues through Sunday, March 13th.
In the fast-paced world of Borgata Spas, few things are as hotly anticipated as the madcap, zany frenzy that is another Borgata Spa Experience—with our latest extravaganza scheduled for March 13 – March 18.
Let yourself go with these high intensity thrill rides at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa such as:
De-stress Massage – 50 min/$85
This upper body massage focusing on high stress areas of your back, neck and shoulders will transport you complete peace.
Borgata Bliss or Javanese Lulur – 100 min/$225
Enjoy one of our relaxing bath and body rituals. Borgata Bliss is available at Spa Toccare. Javanese Lulur is available at Immersion Spa.
Me Time Manicure/Pedicure – $95
Enjoy a Classic Manicure and Plush Pedicure at The Salon, then spend your day relaxing in the women’s spa lounge at Spa Toccare.
Ok, you guessed it, we we’re just funning about the whole high intensity thing (thought you were on Borgata’s Nightlife blog huh?).
There are a lot of realty television stars these days—one is even running for president—and for the most part they come and go.
But there are a few that make an indelible impression on the country. They become much more than just people on TV finding gold in storage lockers or endlessly doing their hair and nails while talking about their rap star boyfriends.
We’re talking, of course, about the Robertson family who have shown all of us the wisdom (well, sort of), values and down home humor that backwoods duck hunters bring to the table.
Yes, it’s Duck Dynasty, the most popular reality show ever (Sorry Kim) and now Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, along with Bally Scientific Games, has made Phil, Si, Willie, Jase and Korie stars of their own slot machine.
And in this case, it’s a progressive jackpot slot game with a top award of 40 million credits.
Which is just prefect when you think about it, considering the Robertson clan made it big by turning some pond reeds into a million selling duck call. But they didn’t let success change them. They’re the same beard wearing, frog hunting, lovable lugs they’ve always been.
Our new Duck Dynasty slots offers these bonus features:
WHEEL BONUS FEATURE – Players spin for Bonus Wheel symbols on reels 2, 3, and 4 and are awarded 1 spin of the Wheel, which awards 1 of 6 entertaining Bonus Features!
If you’re sick and tired of the cold and are looking to thaw from the winter blues, this Friday, March 11, Borgata is offering an opportunity to heat up the start of your weekend with a living legend. Hollywood icon Sophia Loren will be coming to The Event Center, where she will share juicy inside stories about her decades’ long movie making career.
Atlantic City is a great place to dine out and at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa we’ve always been proud to be the leader in our resort’s fine dining choices.
So when they invented Atlantic City Restaurant Week—this year from March 6 to March 12—as a chance to celebrate the diversity and dining choices available here in Atlantic City, we made a quick decision. “We’ll be there with bells on.”
Well not bells (old expression). But we did decide to embrace the concept fully and participate at some of our best eateries—The Metropolitan and N.O.W. for lunch and Fornelleto, Izakaya and Wolfgang Puck American Grille for dinner.
If you’re not familiar with Atlantic City Restaurant Week, more than 70 restaurants around the city will participate by offering prix fixe meals (French for fixed price) for both lunch and dinner for the week. The lunch price is $15.16 and the dinner price is $33.16. Diners get to make choices from the prix fixe menu to create their meal.
And Borgata is offering the same deals for Restaurant Week.
For example, at Wolfgang Puck American Grille, your entrée choices for dinner are (along with a first course and dessert):
We’ve all heard the phrase “Waiting for our ship to come in.” But at the same time, we know that there isn’t just some money boat floating around waiting to dump, oh let’s say $13,545 at our feet.
Au contraire. At least when you’re talking about BorgataCasino.com. Just ask Susan from Park Ridge, New Jersey, who made a $9 bet on BorgataCasino.com’s Money Boat slot game and won $13,545.
We’d have to say that’s one of the most appropriately named slots at BorgataCasino.com.
Meanwhile, our top winner for the week at BorgataPoker.com had three great tournament showings for a win of $12,300.
That’s close to 26K for our two top winners for the week of February 22 – 28.
Is that your ship floating out there? Bring it home at Borgata’s online casino sites.
Here’s a look at the top online winners for February 22 – 28, 2016:
– On February 22, Donnamarie from Ringoes, New Jersey, won $3,389.44 after placing a $2.40 bet on the Going Nuts slot game.
– On February 25, Nicholas from Wall, New Jersey, bet $7.20 playing the Zeus III slot game and won $4,466.52.
