Online Gaming Winners for April 11 – 17

Loot'EnKhamun Slot MachineThose of you that regularly check out our weekly big winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com already know about the magic that happens on particular online slots games.

We’ve certainly noticed it in bringing you the winners list and the magic comes through again this week on our BorgataCasino.com slot game Loot EnKhamun. Our players had another great week of simulating the riches of King Tut as two winners – Rocco from Belmar and Virginia from Rahway – made a combined total of $6 in bets and won more than $8,000 in jackpots. And both on April 14.

At BorgataPoker.com, our Sunday $50K guaranteed tournament remains the gold standard as the top Borgata finishers (the tournament is also played at PartyPoker) took in better than $20K.

Who will the magic happen to this week?

Here’s a look at the big online gaming winners for April 11 to April 17:

BorgataCasino.com

– On April 14, Glenn from Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, bet $6 playing the OMG Kittens! slot game and won $3,937.50.

– On April 14, Rocco from Belmar, New Jersey, won $5,006 after placing a $5 bet on the Loot’EnKhamun mobile slot game.

Rise and Shine, Poker Players!

Matt StoutThe World Series of Poker recently announced that many bracelet events this summer in Las Vegas will start at 11am rather than the usual noon start time. I expected to hear complaints from poker players, pros especially, when this change was announced but I couldn’t have predicted just how much backlash there would be from the poker community.

I personally would prefer to keep the noon start times, but as with any change that impacts many people it’s important to look at the overall effect(s) of the change rather than one’s personal preference. I believe it’s a bit short-sighted to complain about the change in start times in much the same way that it’s short-sighted to complain about the slower pace of play, bright lights, showing your cards to the camera/RFID reader, and other annoyances associated with being on a streamed or televised table. When you look at the big picture, tournament poker has flourished in the past 13 years mainly due to televised poker bringing in masses of people who watched poker on TV, especially the WSOP and WPT.

When it comes to the 11am start times, I think it’s important to consider which demographics are more likely to prefer which start time. I can tell you from many years of experience playing Borgata tournaments, which typically start at 11am, that recreational players tend to be on time much more frequently than pros and they don’t seem to mind the earlier start time. The earlier start time at WSOP is accompanied by an earlier bagging time, which is a big consideration for recreational players who aren’t used to being up until 2am, much less playing high stakes tournaments at that hour. I think Borgata has been getting this right all along and I’m glad the WSOP has caught up from a “good of the game” perspective.

Online Gaming Winners for April 4 – 10

High Hand ChallengeThe Sunday $50K Guaranteed Tournament at BorgataPoker.com had a pretty lucrative run on April 10 for our regular listing of big online winners for April 4 – 10.

Let’s go over that again. The big winner for the week came in second, the second place winner for the week came in first (Hint: the big winner cashed in four different tournaments).

Hey, that’s just how it goes sometimes at BorgataPoker.com as you’ll see below in our list of online winners for April 4 – 10.
