It was all about gigantic payouts at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com the past two weeks. We saw casino players win big on Jack and the Beanstalk and poker players take down some of the biggest online tournaments in New Jersey. Here’s a look at what happened in the world of Borgata online gaming.
BorgataPoker.com may have its famous $40,000 Guaranteed Sunday Major, but BorgataCasino.com takes the spotlight this week after surprising one player with more than $50,000 at the online slots. It was a rewarding week at both Borgata online gaming sites as dozens of players won at the slots, conquered the felt, and qualified for a multi million-dollar land-based tourney. Here’s a look at our big online gaming winners for the week of January 8th.
With the incredibly popular $560 buy-in, $2 million guaranteed opening event of the 2017 Borgata Winter Poker Open upon us, I figured now would be a good time to give the readers of the Borgata Blog a few pointers on how to approach tournaments with fields so large they almost seem insurmountable. You’ll frequently hear players refer to big field tournaments as lotteries, luck fests, and other names that imply that skill somehow isn’t a factor like it is in tournaments with smaller fields.
It’s a new year and we have a whole new list of winners here at Borgata. As soon as the ball dropped, we got the ball rolling the first week of 2017 by turning ordinary online casino and poker players into extraordinarily big winners. Here’s a look at who was on fire at the online slots, who stacked their way to victories at the poker tables, and which games and tourneys should be on your radar if you want to be next.
We’re kicking off 2017 in style with two big promotions that run each and every week this January. You could win up to $150 Bonus Dollars and a hilarious night away at Borgata Casino Hotel & Spa. This is big, so set a repeating alert on your calendar because you won’t want to miss what’s happening every Tuesday and Thursday this month.
On a few different occasions I’ve heard players wonder what all of the backpack-toting poker pros are carrying in their bag. Cash game players have the luxury of getting up and leaving the table any time they get hungry, have a headache, start to lose focus or go on tilt but with tournament days often lasting 12-14 hours or more it’s important to stay prepared in order to remain focused and avoid distractions at the table. Here’s a list of what I consider the essentials when I pack my bag for a tournament.
NEW BORGATA ONLINE MEMBERS: By finishing in the money in the $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship event, you’ll win a Tournament Dollar prize to use online at BorgataPoker.com. The higher up you finish, the more TDs you’ll earn — as much as your land-based buy in back (that’s $3,500 in tournament dollars added to your new Borgata online account)!
Playing poker online at BorgataPoker.com is always a realistic experience. The sounds of the chips stacking. The table layout. The whole deal. But on September 17th, we’re taking things to a whole new level by blurring the lines between online poker and live tournament play.
On Saturday, September 17th, up to 64 players will take a seat at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City to play in a live heads-up tournament using their laptops or mobile devices. And now’s your chance to be one of them.
Just log in to your BorgataPoker.com account and register for the Borgata Poker Open – Event Center Online Heads Up Tournament NL Hold’em event (a $500+35 buy-in).
Hey all, definitely been a while since I checked in on the blog. I’m going to try and get a lot more of these out there from now on … I’m hoping to find a nice mix of writing about some things poker strategy-related, some things BorgataPoker.com-related (there are so many cool promotions being run by them right now, and some amazing new additions to the live casino as well!), and some things related to life traveling as a poker player. For now, I thought it would be smart to start with a quick recap of my recent World Series of Poker experience…
