There’s one thing tournament poker players love. And that’s winning.
OK, there’s another thing tournament poker players love. Namely chips, which go a long way towards getting to that first goal of winning.
The more you have, the better off you are and the more big blinds you can play.
So, it’s not surprising that one of the most popular types of tournament play at Borgata are our deepstack tournaments—tournaments that start players off with more chips than regular tournaments.
I mean starting with more chips can only help right? OK, that’s probably a theoretical argument for hardcore grinders to figure out, but a least having more chips gives you something to fiddle with in the early rounds. And they just make you feel good.
This June the Borgata Poker Room gives you the chips you love with a Deepstacks Challenge from June 8 – 20. It’s a major Borgata poker event with 13 separate deepstack events with either 25K (deep stack), 35K (deeper stack) or 40K (deepest stack) in starting chips.

DEEP STACK NLH (RE-ENTRY) $15,000 GUARANTEED MON, 6/8 11AM $100 + $20

This week’s look at the big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com reads like an endorsement of Borgata Poker’s weekly guaranteed poker tournaments.
By “guaranteed,” we mean that the total prize pool for the tournament will at least be a certain amount (it can go over depending on the number of players), so you can always be pretty sure of what you’re playing for. BorgataPoker.com, along with our partners at Party Poker, offer up a daily $10,000 guaranteed tournament and on Sunday’s we go whole hog with a $50K guaranteed tournament.
The result? About $16,000 in wins for BorgataPoker.com players this week. Add to that another about $13K in jackpot wins at BorgataCasino.com.
That’s a pretty good endorsement. Winning always is.
One quick note. As Monique from Spring, Texas knows, you don’t have to live in New Jersey to play Borgata Online sites, just physically located in New Jersey when you’re playing.
Here’s a look at the big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com for May 11 to May 17.
– On May 11, Michele from Galloway, New Jersey made a $25 bet playing the Aztec Gold slots game from her mobile device and won $3,265.
– On May 12, Monique from Spring, Texas, made a $19.20 bet playing the Glitz slots game and won $4,887.04 on one spin.
– On May 14, Jody from Hoboken, New Jersey, made a $5 spin on the Loot’EnKhamun slots game and won a $5,006 jackpot.
It was another week of big jackpots at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com and this week we’ve got a bit of a mixed bag—of cash.
There was another big video poker hit, the pixies of the forest put some cash in Jennifer from Sewell’s pocket and Aztec Gold lived up to its name for Sonia from Fair Lawn.
Meanwhile, BorgataPoker.com players kept racking up tournament wins and cashing in on our online tournament leaderboard promotion.
It’s all pretty routine—that is if you think more than $36,000 in cash and prizes is routine.
But then at BorgataCasino.com & BorgataPoker.com, it kind of is.
Here’s a look at our big online winners for May 4 to May 10.
– On May 4, Larry from Tabernacle, New Jersey, hit it big with a $10,000 win playing Game King Double Double Bonus Video Poker.
– On May 7, Jennifer from Sewell, New Jersey, made a bet playing the Pixies of the Forest slots game and won $8,751 on one spin.
– On May 9, Sonia from Fair Lawn, New Jersey, made a spin on the Aztec Gold slots game from her mobile device and won a $4,927 jackpot.
Love multi-table tournaments? You’re going to love them twice as much when you find out that playing in them could lead to thousands in extra cash and prizes. This May, we’re continuing our two big Tournament Leaderboards with lots to give away, including the chance to play in major live events in the east coast’s premier poker room at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.
It all starts with the Quarterly Freeroll Invitational Tournament. This June, up to 1,500 players will take a seat in an invitational poker tournament, just for qualifying BorgataPoker.com multi-table tournament players. The tournament prize pool features $20,000 in prizes for the top 36 finishers, and first place wins all this:
• A $3,500 Championship entry
• A $560 land-based entry
• A $200 Sunday $50k GTD entry
• 2-night accommodations at Borgata in Atlantic City
Second and third place also win that $3,500 entry, and there are lots more prizes like tournament dollars, online entries, and more land-based entries.
Every week we put together the list of the big online winners at Borgata’s online sites BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
And every week we learn a little something—like raging rhinos are good and online leaderboards for poker are pretty cool.
Speaking of poker, this week we have a great lesson in video poker from Michael in Wayne, New Jersey. Playing a jacks or better game (no wildcards) at BorgataCasino.com, Mike was confronted with three cards in a royal flush (spades) and a pair of deuces, one of which was the deuce of spades.
What do you do? Go for the royal where the odds are long but the payout is great. Hold the deuces and go for a much smaller payout (three of a kind, two pair), but get much better odds?
Or, hold the four spades and go for the flush, a medium payout?
Well, turns out Michael went for the big money—and hit the royal to the tune of $16K.
Pretty good lesson. What will you learn playing Borgata Online this week?
Here’s the big online winners for April 27 – May 3:
Every week we give you the list of our big online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com because, well, we just love to celebrate our players’ big jackpots.
This week, however, is cause for a major celebration as four—count’em four—Borgata online players scored a better than $10K jackpot. Ok, two scored big payouts at BorgataPoker.com, so technically not jackpots, but you get the idea.
In all, our big winners collected better than $80,000 in jackpots and tournament winnings this week (including a $15,400 entry into the WPT World Championship at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa). And that’s not counting all the Borgata online winners that didn’t make the list.
80 grand. Hey, we’re here every week. You could be too.
Here’s the big online winners for April 20 to April 26:
– On April 20, Cortney from Williamstown, New Jersey, made a bet playing the WMS Black Knight 2 slots game and won $15,295.50.

One of the great things about online slots these days are the cool themes the games employ. You get things like Kitty Glitter, Biker Pigs and Going Nuts (with an appropriate squirrel theme).
It’s all so much more creative than the old-school bells and cherries.
So you gotta love it when you hear that one of BorgataCasino.com’s newest games from Williams Interactive—Raging Rhino—scored one of our big online jackpots for the week of April 13-19.
Clearly, a relaxed rhino or a recalcitrant rhino wouldn’t have been the same.
It’s also the second time in two weeks that a WMS game has hit a big jackpot shortly going online. Just nine days after going live, the slot paid out close to $18K.
Now that’s a rewarding rhino.
Here’s the list of big online winners for April 13 – 19.
– On April 16, Scott from Mount Laurel, New Jersey, did a $6 spin playing the Monopoly Level Up Plus slots game and won $3,680.

April might be the month of the Borgata Spring Poker Open and its daily package of tournaments, but the Borgata Poker Room never rests, and the month of May is shaping up to have one of the best special tournament line-ups of the year for a non-Borgata Open month.
The daily tournament schedule resumes May 2 and Borgata has two featured tournaments on the first and last Sunday of the month. These are additional tournaments added to the daily Sunday schedule:
OE $5,000 GUARANTEED – SUN, 5/3 -12PM – $170 + $30 – DETAILS
DOUBLE STUD $5,000 GUARANTEED – SUN, 5/31 – 12PM – $170 + $30 – DETAILS
On May 9, we’ve scheduled a $10,000 Super Survivor Tournament at noon. It’s a $1,000 + $80 buy-in which awards approximately $10,000 to one in ten players. Here’s the structure.
Our $100,000 guaranteed Borgata Mini-series returns May 18 to May 22. The tournament is a $150 + $30 No limit Hold’em event with four opening sessions.
