Here’s some takeaways from looking at last week’s (December 8 – 14) big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
For video poker players, nothing matches the thrill of hitting the Royal Flush, Borgata’s Melon Madness progressive slots continue to hit big and Borgata has the best online promotions in New Jersey.
You’ll see what we mean by checking out the week’s winners list.
- On December 8, Danielle from Brigantine, bet $10 on Melon Madness at BorgataCasino.com on her mobile device and won an $8,330 jackpot.
- From December 10 – 15, six players each received winners letters and $1,000 cash in the 12 Days of Win-ter Sweepstakes: John L. from Carteret, Sam C. from West Caldwell, Matthew M. from Hamilton Square, Jeffrey P. from Basking Ridge, Richard K. from Brick and Anthony H. from Egg Harbor City.

That’s a lot of early Christmas presents from BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com. How many more will be won this week?
Through the long ages of daytime TV (you know, starting back in, like, the 50s) there have been a handful of shows that break through to become more than just hits, but become full-blown pop culture phenomenon.
Stuff like “Howdy Doody,” “General Hospital,” “People’s Court” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show” for example.
For our age, however, the daytime TV phenomena is “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Some of us (read Old People) can remember when DeGeneres was just a simple stand-up comic who later had her own sitcom in the 90s. But it was in 2003, when she launched her daytime show that DeGeneres passed into the pop culture phenomena category.
That’s 11 years of Emmy awards, dancing and singing with her live-studio audience and her famous giveaways. And let’s not forget how internet savvy she is, as she’s being credited with the most retweeted tweet of the year with the superstar packed selfie she tweeted when she hosted the Oscars.
So what could be the next world left for DeGeneres to conquer?
Slot machines, of course. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa proudly announces the addition of two new “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” themed slot machines on our casino floor. After all, a show famed for giveaways makes a perfect slot machine theme.
The two new slots are The Ellen DeGeneres Show™ Featuring Ellen’s Dance Party Video Slots and The Ellen DeGeneres Show™ Featuring 12 Days of Giveaways Video Slots from IGT games.
“I’m so excited to have my very own line of slot machines,” DeGeneres says of her new slots. “People are gonna have the chance to play really fun games, have their own mini dance parties and win actual cold, hard cash. I mean, honestly, what more do you want from me?”
One of the best things about BorgataCasino.com is that you can take the fun with you, wherever you go in New Jersey. Our mobile casino is your ticket to winning on the go, and today we’ve added 5 IGT new games to the mix. Go ahead and play from your iPhone, iPad, or Android smartphone or tablet.

Dungeons and Dragons: Crystal Caverns
Ready for the adventure of a lifetime? Grab your sword and step into a surreal world where big payouts are lurking around every corner. There are loads of gems and jewels buried in the crystal caverns, so grab your mobile devices and search for them.
They say that it’s good luck to see a monarch butterfly on a sunny day, but this takes things to a whole new level. Grand Monarch puts you into a breathtaking forest with caterpillars, flowers, and beautiful monarch butterflies. There are lots of ways to win in this one so give it a try.
You probably think you live in the greatest Hi-Tech age of all time, what with the smartphones and cars that can find any address in the world.
But really, do you think it beats taking a shower as a Wooly Mammoth sprays water on you–from its trunk–or having a Dictaphone that’s pretty much just a really smart talking bird?
How about disc brakes? Why, when you can just use your feet? Commercial air travel? You haven’t lived until you’ve flown on a giant pterodactyl (complete with flight attendants).
Now that tech–Stone Age Tech.
We, of course, are talking about life in that crazy town of Bedrock with the lovable Flintstones clan, which will now be a regular on Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s casino floor thanks to a new slot machine from WMS Games.
The Flinstones—immortalized in breakfast cereal and vitamins—was the most successful animated prime-time series ever before The Simpsons began its 88-year run. It ran from 1960 to 1966 and then in reruns pretty much until now. Kind of a prehistoric “The Honeymooners,” it gave us the catch phrase Yaba Daba Doo, a 1994 film and a pretty great version of “Bedrock Twitch” from the B-52s.
And now, it’s bringing you jackpots. The sights, sounds, and of course all of your favorite characters from THE FLINTSTONES television series make their debut on the Gamefield xD cabinet in this fresh take on the prehistoric wheel.
You’re walking alone in the forest because the evil queen has really got it in for you—so you pretty much just took off from the castle. She’s got this snarky mirror that’s been giving her a hard time just because you—the fairest of them all—are a lot better looking than her. Like that’s your fault.
Anyway, you’re in the forest when you see seven small shapes approaching through the underbrush. Are they friendly? Will they help you? You look closely as they come into view and realize that yes, they are … seven velociraptors.
Ok, no help there and they start moving on you pretty quick. So you’re running, trying to keep the electric fences on and dodging T-Rex’s and that one dinosaur that spit the poison on the guy from Seinfeld. It’s pretty hectic and all you can think of is it would be great to find some help, like say a big guy with an axe.
So around the bend you go and there he is … a giant white whale named after that bald guy who plays all the electronic music (or is it the other way around?).
Anyway, now there’s guys in boats with harpoons, dwarves, brachiosaurs, and a bunch of bad apples. It’s mayhem.
There’s only one thing it can all mean—bonus spins and jackpots.
Ok, ha ha, we’re having a little fun again with the varied themes you can find in the slots area on the casino floor of Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
There are few things as great in our modern world as things that are “Instant.”
Think about it. Instant coffee, instant ramen noodles, instant messaging, instant downloads, instant chemistry (between two people), instant gratification…
And for slots players, instant bonuses.
From November 14 to November 16, slot players at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa will receive instant bonuses of guaranteed slots dollars through their My Borgata Card. Each player is eligible for up to 10 wins.
Why? Hey, we’re all busy. And while BONUS SLOT DOLLARS® are great anytime, things are always better when they are instant.
So here’s a little Q&A on how the Borgata Instant Bonus works. Meanwhile, we have to go. Our noodles are ready.
Great news. We’ve got an entire forest filled with rewards waiting to be uncovered. But don’t worry about digging through piles of dirt to find them. Just let the pixies lead the way.
We’re thrilled to introduce Pixies of the Forest, a new, magical 99-payline (yes, 99!) online slot game from IGT that’s a lot of fun to play. It’s even more rewarding with free bonus cash for our Facebook friends. More on that in a sec.
In Pixies of the Forest, there are loads of rewarding symbols that lead to big payouts but our favorite part is definitely the Tumbling Reels™ feature. With Tumbling Reels, all winning symbol combos disappear from the reel window which makes room for new symbols to drop down from above. It’s huge and it could lead to way more rewards than you’d expect.
That’s just the start. This 99-payline game also has something called Connected Lines™. It offers you 3 for 1 betting, so you can play all 99 Connected Lines for just 33 coins.
Reading our blog from your iPhone or Android? Then you’re going to love this. We just launched three new IGT games for our mobile casino — Golden Goddess, Monopoly Dream Life and Rich Girls.
If you’ve played at BorgataCasino.com on your PC or Mac, you’re probably already familiar with these great online slots games. If not, here’s a recap of what’s in store.
Monopoly Dream Life
You can now play Monopoly on a screen that’s about the size of Monopoly money. Monopoly Dream Life, which launched on BorgataCasino.com for Macs and PCs back in August, is now available to play on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device. With 20 paylines, there isn’t too much clutter, so the game is perfect for the small screen. But don’t let screen size fool you. Monopoly Dream Life is packed with big rewards.
When it comes to Willy Wonka movies, the world is basically split into two camps—those who love the 1971 film “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory” with Willy played by Gene Wilder, and those who love the 2005 film “Charlie & the Chocolate Factory” with Johnny Depp in the Willy Wonka role.
The 2005 film has the original title of the Roald Dahl 1964 children’s book, but the 1971 film figured out that Willy—especially when played by Wilder—was the true star of the story (with all apologies to Charlie). Well, he and the Oompa Loompas.
So the question is, when you sit down to play Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s new Willy Wonka slots, which Willy do you want smiling down on you as you hit the big jackpot?
Yeah, yeah Depp is all dreamy looking and specializes in quirky roles like Willy, but Borgata is going old school on this one. We’re in the Gene Wilder camp.
The Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory Pure Imagination Slots is the latest WMS Gamefield xD™ cabinet slot themed after a song title in the 1971 film. Everything from the goose that laid the golden eggs to Veruca Salt’s tantrums are covered in this bonus-heavy game.
This new theme takes the mechanics that players love from previous Willy Wonka-themed WMS games, adds a unique twist, and then displays them on the seamless screens of the Gamefield xD cabinet for a scrumdidilyumptious gaming experience.
Collect three or more eggs in order to trigger the Egg Bonus, where each egg collected drops into one of three buckets: The Fizzy Lifting Drink Bonus, The Veruca Tantrum Bonus, or The Pure Imagination Free Spins. The bonus with the most eggs then pays out.
You may already know that koi represents prosperity. But you haven’t seen anything quite like this. In Water Dragons, our new game from IGT, you’re transported to a world unlike anything you’ve seen before – one where wealth is in abundance thanks to rewarding pearls and koi that comes in a variety of colors.
You’ll love the bonus round in Water Dragons because it’s really easy to play. When you land on three bonus scatter symbols you’ll automatically earn 15 free spins. You can also retrigger the bonus for up to 225 spins. As you play, collect pearls to turn a colored koi wild on the reels and qualify for even bigger payouts!
