Borgata’s online sites at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com racked up another double $10K week as our top jackpots at both sites hit $10,000.
Sure, there are a whole bunch of other jackpots for the week, but there’s just something nice about hitting the $10K mark.
At BorgataCasino.com, the Money Boat came in for Kenneth from Englishtown New Jersey, won $10,836.00 after placing a $7.20 bet on the Money Boat slot game.
Each week as we bring you the big online wins at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, we highlight the good fortune our players have at the best online casino sites in New Jersey.
And while we salute every winner, just like you, we love to see the big jackpots come through.
Like say, Prabhukumar from Edison New Jersey, who turned an $8 bet playing the Bier Haus slot game into a $7,259 jackpot. Or the three players who won better than $21K combined – led by a $10,000 win by MrWheat – at BorgataPoker’s Sunday $50K guaranteed tournament.
We love our winners at Borgata, but some wins, well they just make us all goose pimply.
What kind of win will you have this week at Borgata’s online sites?

Here at the Borgata blog, we like to point out from time to time how often some of the games at BorgataCasino.com hit bit jackpots. Games like Loot’En Khamun and Raging Rhino just seem to turn up a lot in the list of big online winners.
But our favorite has to be Yahtzee!. We just can’t get past the childhood memory of seeing those dice line up and yelling “Yahtzee” at the top of our lungs. Which is precisely what we hope happened when Vincent from Long Branch hit a $3,500 jackpot playing our Yahtzee! slot game. His bet – 40 cents. That’s worth yelling about.
Now that summer is underway, a lot of people are asking me about the proper “rules” for staking with the Borgata Summer Poker Open coming up (and that other little tournament going on in Vegas). I just wanted to post a blog outlining the ins and outs of staking deals to help people understand how each type of deal works
One of the many great things about playing Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s online sites is the flexibility we give players in choosing both the games we offer and the amount players want to bet.
A good example can be seen in the week’s big online winners at BorgataCasino.com.
Joan from Verona made a $10 bet on the Balloonies slot and won just north of $5,000 while Melissa from Jackson bet $1.80 and won $4,000.
The point? Bet a lot or a little at Borgata online, the big jackpots come either way.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for the week of Monday, May 23, 2016 through Sunday, May 29.
In recent years there has been a huge shift in the format of tournament poker. In the beginning tournament poker was always played with a freezeout format, meaning that once you were eliminated you could not get back into the tournament. You were required to lumber away from the table, defeated, and find something else to do with the remainder of your day.
Then, several years ago, casinos and online poker sites began offering players the opportunity to buy back into the tournament if they were eliminated early enough in the event. This enabled operators to boast gigantic payouts for a small buy-in. When you can offer a person the opportunity to win a life-changing sum of money for a relatively small buy-in it’s obviously a huge selling point. That’s one reason why you see Borgata packed to the brim with poker players every time they host the $560 buy-in opening event.
Most of us like round numbers. You know, like $5,000 and $10,000. Especially when it comes to big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
Lucky for all of us, that’s just how things worked out for our big BorgataCasino.com winner – who took home a $5,000 jackpot – and our big poker winner for the week of May 16, who won $10,000.
Now there’s nothing wrong with winning $3,992 at Borgata Casino.com and $5,550 (hey that’s round too) at BorgataPoker.com, as our second place winners for the week did respectively. Nothing at all.
It’s just always nice to see all those zeroes line-up – especially on your wins.
How many zeroes can you line up?
Recently the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood, FL hosted the World Poker Tour’s “Tournament of Champions” which was a $15k buy-in event exclusively for players who’ve won WPT main events. While the shot clock has been tried before in the occasional preliminary tournament and super high roller event, this marked the first time it has been used such a prestigious tournament and has led to a lot of discussion about the idea and implementation in poker circles.
Each dealer was given a tablet with a timer and players were given 30 seconds to act on their hand regardless of what street the decision was being made on. In addition to these 30 seconds to act, each player received 5 “time chips” which could be used to extend the amount of time they were given to act for tough decisions. Players who made the televised final table were reset to a total of 4 time chips whether they’d used their previous 5 or not. If you weren’t facing a bet and time ran out, your hand was automatically checked. If you were facing a bet and ran out of time, your hand was declared dead.
We like to give acknowledgement to our big online winners each week at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, because, well, who doesn’t like a big jackpot?
But there’s something to be said for the steadier wins that happen every day at our online sites as well. Take the Daily $10K Guaranteed tournament at BorgataPoker.com (and our partners at PartyPoker). That’s a daily tournament that paid six Borgata online winners almost $3,000 in jackpot winnings for May 9 through May 15.
That’s better than $18,000 in daily tournament wins for just one of our daily tournaments.
