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.
Ah Tuesday. It’s the third day of the week and the second day of the work week.
But that’s not why it’s called Tuesday. The name actually come from a Viking god of war named Tiw, so it’s Tiw’s day. Kind of like Thursday is named after Thor and so on.
In Latin the name was associated with the Roman god Mars, so that’s why in Spanish its Martes. Because Spanish is a Latin-based language.
More than you wanted to know?
Well, we just mention it because Tuesday has another meeting this October at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. In simple terms it’s just the greatest weekday ever to win big and party with us here in Atlantic City.
First up, slots players can enjoy 2X Slot Dollars every Tuesday all day at Borgata in October. Plus, it’s a whole month of Toll Free Tuesdays on the Atlantic City Expressway (inbound tolls only).
Online players at BorgataCasino.com can also get 2X iRewards Points from noon to 8pm every Tuesday. Play any slots, classic slots or progressive slots and you’ll earn double iRewards Points (iRPs).
You 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.
In 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.
Things 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.
We think the My Borgata Rewards program is the best player’s rewards system in Atlantic City—and pretty much anywhere else, for that matter—and we’re always ready to back it up.
The My Borgata Red Label Card gives you the best in comp and slots dollars to start, but it’s the premium My Borgata Black Label Card, that we’ll put up against any premium card in the city.
Say you’re a premium card member at any Caesars Entertainment property, the Trump casinos and now, the Tropicana Casino & Resort. Bring your premium card in and we’ll upgrade you to a Black Label Card at Borgata.
We think you’ll appreciate the difference.
Here’s one of the worst kept secrets on the casino floor at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa—Penny slots can hit big.
This Sunday (July 13), a Pheonixville Pa. woman (who wishes to remain anonymous) was playing the penny slot Wizard Of OZ – Haunted Forest (Reel Adventure) when she hit the big jackpot.
How big? Try $290,260.06.
Yes, on a penny slot.
One of two Wizard of Oz themed slots from WMS games, the newly configured slot machine allows you to control the game by choosing symbols to award yourself credits or advance up the screen and features new wheel-based bonuses and Winged Monkey features will make this game one of your new favorites.
Whether you’re an old school Bob Barker fan or a new school Drew Carey follower, anyone who has ever watched the long-running game show The Price is Right knows the real stars are the Showcase Showgirls that present the fabulous prizes.
C’mon, who’s ever really looked at the new washing machine with Manuela, Amber, Gwendolyn or Rachel standing right there?
So, it’s fitting that Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa ’s newest slot machine will have those fabulous Price is Right models presenting you your prizes—well, in virtual video slots machine mode anyway.
Borgata introduces the Price is Right Showcase Showgirls slot from WMS games. It’s a 5×4 base game that features stacks of doors that can reveal big wins as well as an all-new Cloning feature. The game also features bonus rounds based on popular Price is Right games such as PLINKO and Cliffhanger.
Anyone who is an aficionado of progressive slot machines and their jackpots knows one simple truth—the more players playing on the machines, the bigger the progressive jackpot.
How many times have you been playing a progressive slot machine at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and you’ve thought to yourself, “If only we had some players from Deadwood South Dakota playing these slots, then these jackpots would get really serious?”
Well, the time has come.
In a first of its kind hook-up between states, Borgata has introduced “Powerbucks” from IGT games—a progressive slots jackpot that links multiple gambling jurisdictions (in this case the states of New Jersey and South Dakota) playing for a common jackpot.
