We all love a bonus and want a bonus. Let’s face it, most of us could really use a bonus. But did you ever think about the word “bonus?” We mean really think about it.
Now, of course a bonus can come at work or be an extra free throw when the other team has gone over the foul limit. But this is the definition that we’re talking about today.
“Something welcome and often unexpected that accompanies and enhances something that is itself good”—from whatever they call the Google dictionary (which is possibly Google dictionary).
That’s the kind of bonus we like here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Especially when we talk about BONUS SLOT DOLLARS®.
Starting today, Thursday, January 22 through Saturday January 24, slots players at Borgata can receive instant bonuses while playing. Think about it. You’re just playing Borgata’s wide selection of slots, enjoying the action and Bam … you win a bonus between $1 and $100 in BONUS SLOT DOLLARS®.
That’s something good, kind of unexpected (well, this blog post aside) and it definitely enhances something already good, which is playing at Borgata.
Among the many different slot themes that can be found on the casino floor at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, you can often find connections that bring the themes together.
Take for example three of Borgata’s newest slots, Tarzan of the Apes from Aristocrat games and LooseGoose and SuperGoose from Ainsworth games.
We all know that Tarzan is the creation of American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs, who wrote about a small boy—that would be Tarzan—who was raised by apes in the African jungle and became a great jungle hero. But did you know Burroughs toyed with other settings for the story, including having Tarzan raised by wild geese? Tarzan would then grow up to hang around golf courses and storm-water retention ponds basically annoying everybody until … No wait, that’s not it.
Actually Tarzan of the Geese protected mythical lost cities where Super Geese protected the Golden Goose that lays the Golden Egg from unscrupulous geese and gold egg hunters with a taste for pâté that threaten scenic waterways … wait, this isn’t right either.
Ok, we admit it. There’s no connection.
Tarzan is Tarzan, Geese are geese. The only connection is that all three of our new slots offer up great slots action and jackpots to players.
New Year’s Eve is here.
Now for those people out there who are good at planning—you know the kind of people who made reservations for a Time’s Square hotel six years ago—that’s no big deal.
But for everybody else, it’s time to panic. Where do we go? Where’s the best party?
One answer—Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
Even the plan aheaders (those who plan ahead?) know that. Just check out this New Year’s lineup at Borgata.

When it comes to a classic, you have to be pretty careful when you start talking about upgrades.
Anyone remember New Coke? Didn’t think so.
Sure, Ms. Pac-Man had better game play than plain old Pac-Man and the CGI King Kong created by Peter Jackson took the old stop/action puppet version Kong of the 1933 original to school. But most of the time, originals stand the test of time.
And that’s especially true of classic old slot themes such as Wicked Winnings from Aristocrat Games. It’s one of the most popular titles ever put out by the Australian game maker. Why would you mess with it?
Well, because they gave it the old Peter Jackson treatment.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, in a national exclusive, is proud to debut Aristocrat’s new Wicked Winnings Legends game, a class III slots dual game package which takes all the fun of the original classic title to the next level. And by national exclusive, we mean that you’ll only find it here in Atlantic City at Borgata.
Wicked Winnings has become a favorite of players mostly because of its … well, wicked features. Filled with flaming skulls, ravens and the famed She-Devil who takes you to the bonus rounds, the game has some of the most vivid graphics, brightest colors and coolest music you’ll find on a slots games.
And you don’t have to lose a bit of it in Wicked Winnings Legends.
Through the long ages of daytime TV (you know, starting back in, like, the 50s) there have been a handful of shows that break through to become more than just hits, but become full-blown pop culture phenomenon.
Stuff like “Howdy Doody,” “General Hospital,” “People’s Court” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show” for example.
For our age, however, the daytime TV phenomena is “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Some of us (read Old People) can remember when DeGeneres was just a simple stand-up comic who later had her own sitcom in the 90s. But it was in 2003, when she launched her daytime show that DeGeneres passed into the pop culture phenomena category.
That’s 11 years of Emmy awards, dancing and singing with her live-studio audience and her famous giveaways. And let’s not forget how internet savvy she is, as she’s being credited with the most retweeted tweet of the year with the superstar packed selfie she tweeted when she hosted the Oscars.
So what could be the next world left for DeGeneres to conquer?
Slot machines, of course. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa proudly announces the addition of two new “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” themed slot machines on our casino floor. After all, a show famed for giveaways makes a perfect slot machine theme.
The two new slots are The Ellen DeGeneres Show™ Featuring Ellen’s Dance Party Video Slots and The Ellen DeGeneres Show™ Featuring 12 Days of Giveaways Video Slots from IGT games.
“I’m so excited to have my very own line of slot machines,” DeGeneres says of her new slots. “People are gonna have the chance to play really fun games, have their own mini dance parties and win actual cold, hard cash. I mean, honestly, what more do you want from me?”
You probably think you live in the greatest Hi-Tech age of all time, what with the smartphones and cars that can find any address in the world.
But really, do you think it beats taking a shower as a Wooly Mammoth sprays water on you–from its trunk–or having a Dictaphone that’s pretty much just a really smart talking bird?
How about disc brakes? Why, when you can just use your feet? Commercial air travel? You haven’t lived until you’ve flown on a giant pterodactyl (complete with flight attendants).
Now that tech–Stone Age Tech.
We, of course, are talking about life in that crazy town of Bedrock with the lovable Flintstones clan, which will now be a regular on Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s casino floor thanks to a new slot machine from WMS Games.
The Flinstones—immortalized in breakfast cereal and vitamins—was the most successful animated prime-time series ever before The Simpsons began its 88-year run. It ran from 1960 to 1966 and then in reruns pretty much until now. Kind of a prehistoric “The Honeymooners,” it gave us the catch phrase Yaba Daba Doo, a 1994 film and a pretty great version of “Bedrock Twitch” from the B-52s.
And now, it’s bringing you jackpots. The sights, sounds, and of course all of your favorite characters from THE FLINTSTONES television series make their debut on the Gamefield xD cabinet in this fresh take on the prehistoric wheel.
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.
When it comes to Willy Wonka movies, the world is basically split into two camps—those who love the 1971 film “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” with Willy played by Gene Wilder, and those who love the 2005 film “Charlie & the Chocolate Factory” with Johnny Depp in the Willy Wonka role.
The 2005 film has the original title of the Roald Dahl 1964 children’s book, but the 1971 film figured out that Willy—especially when played by Wilder—was the true star of the story (with all apologies to Charlie). Well, he and the Oompa Loompas.
So the question is, when you sit down to play Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s new Willy Wonka slots, which Willy do you want smiling down on you as you hit the big jackpot?
Yeah, yeah Depp is all dreamy looking and specializes in quirky roles like Willy, but Borgata is going old school on this one. We’re in the Gene Wilder camp.
The Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Pure Imagination Slots is the latest WMS Gamefield xD™ cabinet slot themed after a song title in the 1971 film. Everything from the goose that laid the golden eggs to Veruca Salt’s tantrums are covered in this bonus-heavy game.
This new theme takes the mechanics that players love from previous Willy Wonka-themed WMS games, adds a unique twist, and then displays them on the seamless screens of the Gamefield xD cabinet for a scrumdidilyumptious gaming experience.
Collect three or more eggs in order to trigger the Egg Bonus, where each egg collected drops into one of three buckets: The Fizzy Lifting Drink Bonus, The Veruca Tantrum Bonus, or The Pure Imagination Free Spins. The bonus with the most eggs then pays out.
