The Jetsons Slots Debuts at Borgata

jetsonsYou know the funny thing about nostalgia? It isn’t always about the past. At least where TV is concerned.

Doesn’t make sense? Well, have you ever felt nostalgic about “Lost in Space“, “Star Trek” or perhaps the best sci-fi show ever—yes, we’re talking “The Jetsons“.

Shows like that may be 50 years old, but they still paint a picture of a future you can believe in. because anyone who has ever seen “The Jetsons” is still waiting to go to work—for two hours a week—in their flying car, leave the housework to Rosie the Robot and pretty much push a button to do anything—like say, play a slot machine.

Ha! Now that’s a segue (or seugeway if you prefer).

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa proudly announces the introduction of THE JETSONS themed slot on our casino floor.

You can meet George Jetson, his boy Elroy, daughter Judy and his wife, Jane in a new slot game from WMS Gaming. THE JETSONS slots features the sights, sounds and characters from the classic TV show in some pretty cool scenarios. For example, players can watch Rosie vacuum up low-paying symbols and replace them with WILDS in the Rosie Feature, or spin the wheel for one of five character-themed bonuses.

‘True Blood’ and ‘Bridesmaids’ Slots Hit Borgata

blog-bridesmaids-truebloodIn Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s never-ending quest to keep things lively on the Borgata Casino floor, we recently came up with a great idea.

What if we had a slot game themed around a group of young vampire bridesmaids living in a spooky southern town that get together for a friend’s wedding and things dissolve into chaos?

Then we thought, “Hey, what if we split the theme into two completely different slots – one with vampires and one with crazy bridesmaids? If only there were some TV shows and movies we could base it on.”

Turns out we’re brilliant.

Borgata proudly announces the addition of two new slots on the Borgata floor themed after HBO’s “True Blood” (that’s your vampires) and the 2011 film “Bridesmaids” respectively.

OK, maybe it wasn’t our idea, but the folks at IGT games that came up with the slots based on two of the biggest hits in pop culture.

The point is that they are cool slots and they are available for your playing pleasure starting this week.

ZZ Top and Sex and The City Lead Borgata’s New Slots

Sex and the City Slot MachineThings are getting very interesting on the casino floor at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

Panthers are prowling, a white lion has been spotted, butterfly swords are being deployed and snow maidens are talking of an eastern promise.

And all while Carrie Bradshaw and friends stroll through the aisles to the sounds of ZZ Top.

Ok, enough of that goofiness. The bottom line is that Borgata is introducing seven new slots to the casino floor and like most modern slots, they each carry a distinct theme.

The days of simple bells and cherries are gone—though those symbols aren’t necessarily—as modern slots offer up themes from our new Prowling Panther slots to the Asian fantasy of our Butterfly Sword slots.

In this new batch, however, all eyes will probably be on Carrie and the women of “Sex and the City” in IGT’s Sex and the City Platinum slot.

Well, the time has come.
