We’re fast approaching the one-year anniversary of online gaming in New Jersey and at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. Yep, it was in November 2013 when BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com first went live and since then, we’ve crowned tons of winners.
At BorgataCasino.com we have the best selection of online slots in New Jersey, and as regular readers of this blog know we are always updating our software and adding new games.
And that just means more winners.
So as a new feature, we at the Borgata Blog are going to highlight the big winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
Here’s a look at some of our jackpot and poker tournament winners for the week of October 6 through October 12.
Who says you have to wait until Halloween to score a Texas Hold’em-sized treat? We’re doubling the guarantee in Sunday’s $200 buy-in tourney. Normally, the prize pool is guaranteed at $50K, but this Sunday, we’re doubling what’s on the table to bring you a sweet $100K event.
The tournament gets underway at 5pm on Sunday, October 19th and $20,000 is guaranteed for first place. If you miss buying in right at 5pm, don’t worry. Late registration is available for the first 180 minutes.
Win big on Facebook
If you haven’t followed us yet on Facebook, now’s the time. That’s because by uploading a photo or video of yourself telling us about your #NowThatsAWin moment, you’ll be entered for a chance to win big prizes – including a grand prize package that features an overnight stay at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, a $200 dining credit, and your choice of Bonus Slot Dollars or a $500 tournament entry at Borgata.
How deep will you go this October for a trophy? Enter a Deep Stacks Challenge tournament at Borgata in Atlantic City and play for a piece of over $100,000 in guaranteed prize money, spread out over six separate events. Win one of the tourneys and you’ll walk away with a coveted Deep Stacks Challenge trophy.
From Monday, October 13th through Saturday, October 18th, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City has a big Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em tourney on the schedule at 11am daily. The buy-in for each tourney ranges from $125 + $25 to $350 + $50, with guarantees ranging from $15K to $40K.
You’ll start each tournament with between 25,000 and 40,000 chips (depending on the tournament). If that seems like a lot, it’s only the start. Busting out early isn’t a big deal because there could be more chips in your future. In these Deep Stacks, you can re-enter the tournament as often as you like up to the end of Level 8.
Good news. Now you can Sit & Go – on the go. We’ve just added Sit & Go tourneys to our mobile app, so as long as you’re within New Jersey, you can hop into a Sit & Go on your iOS or Android device.
To get started, all you need is the latest version of BorgataPoker.com. If you’ve got an iPhone or iPad, just hit the App Store to grab the latest update. If you use an Android, head to BorgataPoker.com and look for the Android link to get started.
While Sit & Go games are great, we didn’t stop there. The new app also includes all these improvements:
- Seamless device transition, so you can move from one device to another and never miss a beat.
- Easy table filtering and quick play options to help you find the game you want to play, quickly and easily.

You know that feeling you get when you’ve been dealt Aces and you think things can’t get any better? Then the flop drops two more Aces to give you quad bullets and an unbeatable hand?
Well, that’s the feeling we’re hoping you get when you see our new software. The BorgataPoker.com software just got a major upgrade. We’ve taken our already-great poker experience and upped the ante with new features that we know you’ll love, including all this:
• Improved Geo-location—Playing near the New Jersey border? Our improved geolocation technology is better at pinpointing your location so you can get online without hassle. That’s especially good when you’re playing from a mobile device.
• A more Intuitive Tournament Lobby—It’s now easier to find the right tournament you want to play in. We’ve added more real-time tourney info to help you buy into the right event.
If you’ve ever played online poker at BorgataPoker.com, you know that there’s always something big happening, no matter what time of day it is, what games you’re into and what your bankroll is like.
We’ve got guaranteed tournaments running ‘round the clock. We’ve got cash games that you can drop in and out of whenever you like, 24/7. And we’ve got Sit & Go tourneys too.
If you’ve never played a Sit & Go, the basics are simple. You register for the small tourney and as soon as enough players have joined, the game begins.
They’re pretty lucrative, but they’re even more incredible from now through September 14th with Borgata’s Sit & Go Leaderboards.
For every Sit & Go you play, you’ll earn points. The amount of points is calculated based on how much you win and we’ll keep track of everything along the way. Using a point calculation system, we’ll rank you on our weekly leaderboards.
We don’t mean to spoil your weekend, but it’s August 1st and that means summer is pretty much halfway over.
The good news? That “Sizzlin Summer” feeling can last all year long with Borgata’s $100K sweepstakes. We just drew 10 weekly winners earlier this week for our latest cash draw. There’s another draw for $4,500 in cash next week, and then five more weekly draws. With each draw, the prize pool grows – all the way up to $10,000.
Cash is great, but for the ultimate summer, you want cool prizes. That’s why on Tuesday, we’re pulling names for our first monthly draw. First place wins a Sea- Doo Spark + Trailer. Second place wins a Beach House Rental. Third and fourth place get a Borgata Luxury Weekend. The prize giveaways continue until 45 winners are crowned.
We’re into the third week of Sizzlin Summer, and while we’ve already handed out $5,500 in cash to 240 lucky winners, there’s still plenty of time to cash in. There are seven more weekly draws happening, but we won’t keep repeating ourselves and tell you that you’ve got a new chance to win every Tuesday, just by playing casino games and poker games during the week leading up to it.
At Borgata, we’ve hammered that point home several times. But what we haven’t talked about so much are the two big monthly giveaways.
On August 5th, we’re drawing 45 winners and awarding them with big prizes – the kind that will make this their most “Sizzlin” summer yet. First place gets a Sea-Doo Spark & Trailer. Second place walks away with a beach house rental. Third and fourth place will get to head to Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa for a luxury weekend away. There’s a foosball table, tennis set, pool table, kayak, another hotel stay and so much more.
Have you entered this week’s cash draw for $3,000? Your Sizzlin Summer entries are free, just for opting in to the promo. You can score free entries every 24 hours.
Believe us, it’s definitely worth it. Here’s a look at our Week 1 winners, who shared in $2,500:
