When we bring you our big online winners for the week, we have a tendency to look at our slots jackpots first.
After all, the slots jackpots at BorgataCasino.com can add up quickly, as Carlo from Kearny, New Jersey, found out by hitting an $8,096 jackpot on the Raging Rhino Slots Game last week.
But most weeks, it’s our tournaments at BorgataPoker.com that really impress as one winner brings down a $10K tournament win every Sunday in our $50K Guaranteed tournament (also run with PartyPoker). This week it was moefarah99. Poker players and their screen names, so cute.
Even at BorgataCasino.com, poker pays off as it did for Victor from Woodland Park, New Jersey, who won $4K playing Game King Double Double bonus video poker.
Yes, we love our slots, but poker rules at BorgataPoker.com.
We have a lot of fun with the various themes our online slots have at BorgataCasino.com, but when we see a big hit on a slot like Elvis the King Lives, we actually get a little reverent.
Because he does. Elvis lives – if only as a $3,300 jackpot for Robert from Elwood. Thank you very much.
Of course, it’s a little disconcerting that a bigger jackpot went to James form Somers Point playing the Goldfish slot game. Not that we begrudge James his about $4K, jackpot, perish the thought.
But it’s not like a goldfish ever had a No. 1 song, or danced with Ann Margret, or made us cry with “In the Ghetto,” … you know, ‘cause Elvis the King Lives.
But hey, if a goldfish is good for $4K, then that just proves BorgataCasino.com has the best slots anywhere.
Where will you be playing this week?
Here’s a look at the top online winners for September 14 – 20:
When Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa first launched its online brands BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, we expected there would be a lot synergy between online play and live play at Borgata.
You can usually see that in our promotions tabs with Play and Stay promotions and others, but where it really comes home is in online satellite play at BorgataPoker.com. The Borgata Poker Open got underway here in Atlantic City September 8 and BorgataPoker.com has been offering up ways to get into the big events—like the $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Open Championship—since August 24.
And that paid off for JOEYdaMUSH and Flawlessbinkage, who each won $3,500 seats into the televised $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship event through our online satellites.
So that’s a $3,500 win online that could lead to a huge payout at the championship, along with the chance to play alongside some of the best pros in the country.
Now that’s synergy.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for September 7 – September 13:
– On September 7, Alan from Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey, made an $5 wager on the Loot’Enkhamun slot game and won $5,115.50.
If you think our weekly $50K Guarantee is big, wait until you see what’s happening at Borgata in Atlantic City on September 20th. That’s Day 1A of the televised $3 Million Guaranteed WPT Borgata Poker Open Championship. It’s the big one in the Borgata Poker Open and lots of online poker players have already secured a spot in it.
The buy-in for the tournament is $3,500, and BorgataPoker.com is guaranteeing a minimum of one seat for each of the five remaining online satellites.
On the first weekend of online satellites, two players secured seats into the Championship. With five more chances this weekend to steamroll a $405 entry in an online Super Satellite into a coveted seat in the live tournament, there should be a lot of online action.
This weekend, you’ll find Super Satellites on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 5:45pm, with each one guaranteeing at least one seat for every 10 players in the tournament. Can’t make it for 5:45? There’s another Super Satellite at 7:30pm on Saturday and Sunday with the same 1 in 10 shot at moving on.
For all the important info, check out the Borgata Poker Open page.
We hate to say it, but sometimes the names of our online slots games don’t always live up to their promise at BorgataCasino.com.
Hear us out.
Michale form Newark was playing Double Diamond slots when he made a $10 bet. So he was probably hoping he’d double his money, ala the name Double Diamonds.
Nope. He multiplied his money 1,000 times and hit a $10,000 jackpot. Kevin from Colonia edged him out by winning $10,006 on Super Luck Spin mobile slots, which did live up to its name.
Sorry Michale, you’ll just have to live with your $10K.
Here’s a look at Borgata’s big online winners for August 31 – September 6:
– On September 1, Kevin from Colonia, New Jersey, made an $18 wager on the Super Lucky Spin mobile slot game and won $10,006.
– On September 2, Robert from Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey, made an $0.80 bet on the Yahtzee slot game and won a $3,500 jackpot.
– On September 5, Michale from Newark, New Jersey, made a $10 bet on the Double Diamond slot game and hit a $10,000 jackpot.
Looking over the top online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com, we came close to hitting a headline writer’s dream.
We all know how creative online poker players at BorgataPoker.com are in choosing their screen names. So when we saw that Turkeyleg was the winner of $10,000 in the Sunday $50K tournament, we started thinking of the possibilities.
Turkeyleg outruns the field at BorgataPoker.com’s $50K.
Turkeyleg kicks it for a $10K win.
Turkeyleg walks away with the top prize.
But alas, the big jackpot of the week went to Patrick of Plainsboro who turned a $3 bet on the Candy Store slots at BorgataCasino.com into $25,768.50.
So we’ll have to go with Patrick is like a kid in the candy store—a kid with $25K.
It’s just not the same. But hey, congrats all around. What headlines will they make this week at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com?
We welcome Asher Conniff as a guest blogger to Borgata Poker Blog! Asher made Borgata history by winning Borgata Spring Poker Open Kickoff event and Borgata WPT World Championship, both of which he qualified for on BorgatPoker.com online satellite events.
Coming into Sunday, I had already had one of the best weeks of my life. Ten days before, I had turned a $60 satellite on BorgataPoker.com into a $560 seat in the Borgata Spring Poker Open $1 million guaranteed kick-off event, a seat which I then turned into the first place prize of $203,231. After years of grinding poker tournaments full-time, both live and online, it was wildly fulfilling to see the fruits of my labor. Needless to say, between the large sum of money I won and the sweet, sweet vindication of beating my good buddy Matt Stout heads up, I was pretty damn happy!!
Back to “that” Sunday. I was at my next-door neighbor’s apartment in Brigantine, NJ, a stones throw away from Borgata. As we often did, a group of 6 or so of us had gotten together that day to hang out while we all played online poker tournaments. Our ritual: we order food, watch sports and talk through hands on our breaks. Armed with a freshly renewed bankroll and sense of confidence, my levels of relaxation were extremely high, and how could they not be!? I also was overjoyed to be heading to Europe the next week with my mother and sister, a vacation that was to span over 2 weeks and had been planned over 6 months prior. Having never been to Europe, I was super excited, and this was obviously the ideal time to be going on vacation. I even skipped the $3500 buy-in Borgata Spring Poker Open Championship event in anticipation of this trip, knowing that if I was to win/nearly win the tournament I would miss my flight!
You know what’s the coolest thing about online slot machines? The bonus spins.
You’re just chugging along making your bets and suddenly something lines up just right, and the game takes on a life of its own. Graphics start appearing, characters in the game start talking to you and suddenly the game just starts spinning turns—and hitting payoffs—you didn’t have to bet on.
And it’s all just a bonus, money won without risking a bet.
Just ask Calvin from Piscataway, who hit the biggest slot jackpot of the week at BorgataCasino.com during the bonus round of Super Monopoly. A few bonus symbols line up, the game goes on a little side trip and the next thing you know Calvin has $8,180 in the bank.
Without betting, because, you know, Bonus.
What bonuses are waiting for you at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com?
Here’s a look at the big online winners for August 17 – 23:
There are a lot of great things we get to yell when we win or score in a game. You know, stuff like “Bingo,” “Gooooaaaal,” “We’re No. 1” etc. But one of the coolest has to be when you get to yell “Yahtzee.”
Anyone who has ever played the classic dice game knows the feeling when all the dice line up just right. Well guess what? You can get your chance to yell Yahtzee playing online at BorgataCasino.com, as Anthony from Somers Point found out playing our newest slots game “Yahtzee.” His $2 bet won him $3,500, which is a little more than we ever won playing Yahtzee in the living room.
Hey we like to keep you yelling—and winning—here at BorgaataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
Of course as much as we love yelling Yahtzee, the real story this week may be the $100,000 jackpot won by Donna from Franklin Lakes on our Double Diamond Slot game. We don’t know what she yelled when she hit the $100K, but she’s probably still yelling.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for August 10 – August 16:
