BorgataPoker.com’s regular doubling of our $50K Sunday tournament—to a $100K guarantee—is the most impressive online poker tournament offered in New Jersey. And for proof, all you have to do is look to our big online winner for the week of January 25 – 31.
Poker player llevenson took home the top jackpot of the week with a $16,100 second place finish in the January 31 $100K. That’s right, second place. Our tournaments are run with our partner PartyPoker. Combined with a $3,600 win in a Daily $10K tournament, llevenson finished the week with $19,700 in winnings.
Only BorgataPoker.com can deliver guaranteed prize pools like that.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for January 25 – 31:
You know what a dream bet is? Consider making a bet and then getting paid off 1,000 times what you bet.
Never happens, you say? Well, it did happen to Dean from Phillipsburg, NJ when he made a $10 bet on BorgataCasino.com’s Double Diamond slot game. He hit a $10,000 jackpot.
That’s a 1,000 to one payout. In fact, when looking at our big online jackpot winners for January 18 – 24, the lowest return was better than 500 to one.
That’s what we call dream bets at Borgata’s online gaming sites. What are you dreaming of?
Here’s a look at the big online winners for January 18 – 24:
It’s not just the Borgata Winter Poker Open in Atlantic City that’s seeing sky-high prize pools. This weekend at BorgataPoker.com, we’re supercharging the guarantee in our Sunday Major.
On Sunday, January 31st at 5pm, step into our $100K Guaranteed No Limit Hold’em Tournament for $200+15. That’s double the guarantee of our regular Sunday $50K GTD for the same $215 buy-in.
You can register for the tournament right now, or win your way into it through a low buy-in satellite.
Don’t forget, just like our regular Sunday Major, the $100K Guarantee comes with one re-entry option. So load your account just in case you bust out early. You’ll be able to jump back in with a fresh chip stack in a snap.
The $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship event gets underway this Sunday, January 31st at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City. Seated among a large field of would-be champions, you’ll find New Jersey resident Vinny Pahuja proudly wearing a BorgataPoker.com patch. If Vinny looks familiar to you, it’s not just because you might have dined next to him at Fornelletto, one of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s exceptional restaurants. Most likely, it’s because you’ve seen him stacking his way to victory in countless Borgata Poker Open events for the good part of a decade.
“I’ve been coming to Borgata for live events since 2008,” says Vinny from the tournament floor of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. “I don’t think I’ve missed a major tournament in seven or eight years. I’ve always loved the product. I spend so much time here throughout the year that everyone from the floor staff to the dealers are like family. Everyone is so welcoming that there’s a nice comfort level every time I play at Borgata.”
If describing an Atlantic City casino and the people behind the poker room as family sounds a bit bizarre, take a look at Vinny’s tournament success list and his sentiments start to make a whole lot of sense.
Most recently, Vinny, who has won nearly $2 million playing live poker, finished 60th in Borgata Winter Poker Open’s event #1, a $2 Million Guaranteed Deep Stack NLH tournament that saw 5,101 entries compete for a $2,550,500 prize pool. But that’s just one notch on Vinny’s Borgata bedpost.
Vinny’s top tournament win came back in the 2008 Borgata Summer Poker Open when he finished 2nd for $289,000. He also notched a first place victory in September 2014 in the Borgata Poker Open’s $1,500 No Limit Hold’em tournament for $58,491. That win followed his April 2014 first place finishing the Borgata Spring Poker Open’s $1,000 No Limit Hold’em tournament for $43,648.
It was another big week for poker play at Borgata’s online gaming sites, with a player at BorgataCasino.com even taking home a $4,000 jackpot on video poker.
The big winner at BorgataPoker.com was sign-on overthetop with two tournament wins and $14,000 in winnings. That’s thanks to the $50,000 prize pool guarantee on our Sunday tournament and a $4,000 prize pool guarantee in the Daily Turbo tournaments.
That’s what we like to do at BorgataPoker.com—guarantee winners.

Even we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa have to get a kick out of our own slot machines as we bring you the big Borgata online winners for December 28 – January 3.
For example, Edward from Woodbury Heights was the big jackpot winner for the week at BorgataCasino.com scoring a $7,706.60 jackpot on the Mini Goingnuts slots. Sounds pretty maximum to us, but hey, it’s the Mini Goingnuts slots.
And once again the Looten Khamun slots paid out another better than $5,000 jackpot. Try getting that out of a real Egyptian mummy.
Our big winner for the week, however, came at BorgataPoker.com where the Sunday guaranteed $50K paid the winner Bobby_Digital $13,400.
We get a kick out of our poker winners as well. Our players just get a kick out of winning.

It’s no secret that BorgataPoker.com enters 2016 as the #1 online poker site in New Jersey. Ongoing promotions like The Grind coupled with frequent leaderboard competitions and contests have made choosing BorgataPoker.com over the competition a no-brainer.
But as impressive as Borgata’s online offering is, it’s what’s happening at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City that’s pushing more and more players to shuffle up and deal on their Macs, PCs, smartphones, and tablets.
New Jersey’s top live casino is home to five Borgata Poker Open events each year that have attracted players from all over the world — including big names like Daniel Negreanu, Anthony Zinno, and Jason Mercier.
There’s the Borgata Spring Poker Open (April), Borgata Summer Poker Open (June/July), Borgata Poker Open (September), and the Borgata Fall Poker Open (November). Kicking off each year is the Borgata Winter Poker Open (January 19 – February 5, 2016).
The 18-day live tournament series features millions of dollars in prize money, including the live-streamed $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Winter Poker Open Championship, live streamed $2 Million Borgata Winter Poker Open Deep Stack kick-off event, a $1 Million Borgata Winter Poker Open Deep Stack event, and more. It’s arguably one of the most anticipated live poker series of the season and BorgataPoker.com has tickets to all three big events.
Starting January 4th, online poker players can snowball a $5 online poker entry into a seat in a live tournament with multi-million dollar prize pools this month. Or perhaps seats — multiple seats — just like Asher Connif, a poker player who won his Borgata Spring Poker Open seats online and conquered not one but two tournaments at Borgata in Atlantic City. More on that in a minute.
First, let’s talk about the future — one that’s going to include a record number of online poker players from BorgataPoker.com seated in several events at this year’s Borgata Winter Poker Open. BorgataPoker.com has put together a daily qualifying schedule to help funnel more players into the live series:
Our big online winners for the week of December 21 – 27 have the added fun of getting a nice holiday win right at a time of year when a lot of us could use it most.
