Have you ever noticed that the traditional symbols that you see on slot machines aren’t always that cute?
You know, bells are nice, but they’re just bells. Cherries, ok, but just cherries. Even stuff like dragons and tigers, fierce sure, but not that cute.
Hey, you know what would be great? OMG—puppies.
Like, for sure, a whole slot machine of OMG, puppies. Little puppies on the reels. Little puppies on the bonuses. Little puppies on the jackpots.
White ones, brown ones, a sort of pink one named Lady.
OMG, that would be sooooo cute.
Hey, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa—with a little help from WMS Games—delivers. We’re Introducing OMG! Puppies slots to Borgata’s casino floor.
The inspiration for OMG! Puppies was the success of the earlier OMG! Kittens slots (cat people, jeesh) on WMS’ special 5×4 reels slots presentation.
Built from a foundation of extensive research and Player Driven Innovation™, 5×4 themes are exclusive to WMS’ CPU-NXT®3 platform and provide unmatched video reel slot action designed to engage players.
Here’s some notes on game play for OMG! Puppies.
Everybody who plays online at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com is hoping for a lucky day. Hey, everybody who gets up in the morning and runs errands is looking for a lucky day (‘Hey, look at that, there’s no line at the bank”).
But it’s especially true when you’re playing BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com and apparently Saturday, June 20 was a lucky day as two of our big online winners for the week at BorgataCasino.com hit jackpots and took home (Well, they were probably already home) a combined $7,300.
Or maybe it was Father’s Day, June 21 when two of our online poker players at BorgataPoker.com won about $17,500 combined playing our Sunday tournaments.
You know what? That’s a bona fide lucky weekend at Borgata’s online sites.
You never know when things are going to run hot. Who Knows? Maybe today is your lucky day.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for June 15 – June 21:

This week’s big online wins at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com include two big slots hits of $10,000 or more.
Let’s say that again. Two Borgata online players had slot hits of $10,000 or more. In one week.
One game was Aztec Myths where you get to travel deep into the Mexican jungle to track down the mythical treasures amongst the pyramids and palaces of the Aztec civilization.
The other was Double Diamond from IGT, which is a simpler game based on a classic casino feel and single pay lines. It actually hit twice for big jackpots last week, including one for $10,000 and another for $3,000.
The moral? Whether you want to indulge in an intricate slots theme or just play traditional bare bones slots, Borgata’s online slot offerings have something for everyone.
And jackpots are cool on any machine.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for June 8 to June 14.
This Sunday, we’re saying thanks to all the Dads in the world — and everyone who appreciates them.

We’ll randomly pick 20 winners, and if you’re one of them, we’ll load your account with $20 in Bonus Dollars.
There’s a lot happening this weekend at BorgataCasino.com, so be sure to visit our Promotions page for all the info.
Slots players often have some interesting ways in deciding which of the about gazillion slot themes that are out there they like to play.
To be sure, sometimes it’s about pay lines and bonuses. Other times, it’s about the graphics. And sometimes it’s about the theme, you know, “I like kitties so I play the slots with cats on them.”
Who knows what makes a slot a favorite—well, hitting jackpots might be a factor—but when a slot is hot, it’s hot. And Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has just added one of the hottest and most popular slots anywhere—88 Fortunes from Bally Technologies.
Just the title alone has got to make you feel good. “Are there 88 Fortunes to be won on the machine? Will I hit 88 times? Let’s see.”
88 Fortunes is an exciting 4-level progressive that features five reels, 234 ways with 10 Free Games that can be endlessly re-triggered. The Fu Bat Jackpot Feature gives you the opportunity to pick three coins for a chance to win up to the Grand Progressive Jackpot.
With authentic Chinese artwork, the game also features the All Up game style, which gives players the chance to buy gold symbols to increase their winning opportunities. As players buy more symbols, they become eligible for more jackpots.
Another week of online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com and another about $14K in jackpots and poker tournament wins to report.
And once again, you have to marvel at the steady beat of the jackpot players of the Loot’EnKhamun slots experience as Steven from Toms River scored another $3,000 jackpot.
Loot’EnKhamun Slots from PartyGaming is an “All-ways” slots game with 243 virtual paylines in the base game and an amazing 1,024 ways to win during the free spins bonus round.
So there’s a lot of ways to hit and it hits a lot of the time.
Still, the biggest jackpot of the week went to the Zeus III Slot, which is themed after the mythical Greek king of the gods.
Remember when slot machines just had bells and cherries and you tried to just get three in a row? How things have changed.
It’s just a wonderful time to be a slots player at BorgataCasino.com.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for the week of June 1 to June 7:
Now that we’ve made it a pretty steady weekly thing to check out the big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, some fun favorite things about the list are emerging.
For example, it’s fun to think of cool headlines for the slots winners. You know, the Money Boat came in for Theresa from Cherry Hill. Or the Raging Rhino ran down a jackpot for Maria from Hazlet.
But one of the most fun highlights of the list has to be the different ways the Royal Flush can hit for video poker players—the Royal is often the big jackpot on video poker games.
Most of the time, players get three cards in the Royal, but are tempted to hold something else, like a pair or a non-Royal flush draw.
But sometimes it works out perfectly, as it did for Nicole from Freehold. She got four cards in the Royal playing Game King Double Double Bonus video poker. That’s a no brainer. You go for the fifth card even though she did have a pair.
Seeing that last ace fall into place … well, we think we can still hear her celebrating.
What will you be celebrating at BorgataCasino.com & BorgataPoker.com this week?
Here’s a look at the big online winners for May 25 – May 31:

We like to look for trends here at the Borgata Blog when we look at the big online winners for the week at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
And for the week of May 18 – 24, the trend seems to be about a $4,000 jackpot. Three of our five winners for the week won about $4,000 and change.
Except of course for Goran from Patterson New Jersey who messed up the trend by winning better than $37K at the Monopoly Level Up Slots at BorgataCasino.com.
We bet he (she?) feels terrible about it—Not.
Hey, there’s no rule. When you play Borgata’s online gambling sites, you can shoot for as big a jackpot as you can. No need to be trendy.
