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.
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.
– On April 22, Debra from Marlboro, New Jersey, made a $4 bet playing the WMS Raging Rhino slots game and won $4,601.
– On April 24, Jonathan from New York, New York, won a $13,975 jackpot playing the IGT Siberian Storm slots game.
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.
BorgataCasino.com is always scouring the world for the best in online slots games and we thought we came up with a pretty good one when we introduced the new Lunaris slots from WMS Gaming. It’s based on lunaris moths and features some pretty cool wheel bonuses.
Well, just one day after it went live, Melody from Little Falls, NJ showed just how cool lunar moths can be when she hit a $6,930 jackpot.
So we’ll keep looking for cool slots and you guys can keep hitting big jackpots.
Oh, by the way, another big Loot’EnKhamun hit is in the books.
Here’s the big online winners for April 6 to April 12.
April Fool’s Day is one of those great quasi-holidays where we can all have a little bit of fun playing tricks on each other. Which does leave you wondering if Ellie form Linden, New Jersey—our big online winner for the week of March 30 – April 5–wasn’t just a little skeptical when five blue scarabs lined up for her on BogataCasino.com’s Loot”EnKhamun slots this April 1.
After all, that’s a $100,000 jackpot.
Regular readers of these online winner updates know, however, that the Loot’EnKhamun slots regularly hit big jackpots at BorgataCasino.com. And Borgata doesn’t fool around when it comes to jackpots.
The hit was legit, of course, and Ellie, well, she’s $100,000 richer.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for March 30 – April 5.
This week it’s all about Ellie from Linden, New Jersey who loves playing our Loot’EnKhamun slots game. On April 1, she made a fool out of us by spinning for 5 Blue Scarabs (including 3 wilds!) and took home $100,000 from this pay line.
– sansara52 was the big winner this week, taking first place in the Sunday $50K Guaranteed tournament on April 5 for $10,000.
– brownmagic had a good weekend winning $8,288 by taking first in the Saturday Daily $1,000 Guaranteed Rebuy, second in the Saturday Daily $10K, and second in the Sunday $50K Guaranteed.
We at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa like to say that “variety is the spice of life.” And that goes for our online offerings at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
Borgata online has scoured the earth for the best in online slots play, offering up a smorgasbord of slots choices from the online slots content providers such as IGT, WMS and bwin.party.
So our big online winners for March 23 – March 29 highlight just how much variety that is as all three turned small bets into big wins on three completely different slots experiences.
So, while variety may be the spice of life, jackpots are the gravy … which you can spice up with the variety … because playing Borgata online … uhm, is like a fine meal?
OK, that got away from us. Let’s just announce Borgata online’s big winners for March 23 – March 29.
– On March 23, Janine from Lincroft, New Jersey, made a $4 bet playing the IGT Battleship game and won a $15,870 jackpot.
– On March 24, Vincent from Middletown, New Jersey, made a $10 bet playing the WMS Invaders from the Planet Moolah slots game and turned it into a $3,616 win.
The first Borgata $10,000 Guaranteed Basketball Free Throw Tournament is in the books and it can be summed up in one simple word—swish.
Well, actually, a lot of the 1,022 contestants that turned out for the inaugural event on March 21 went the bank-shot route, but the winner, Al Callejas, 37 of Archbald, PA definitely went for the swish as he won first prize and $10,220.
Callejas told the Scranton Times Tribune that he got a little nervous watching competitors take advantage of the springy backboards used for the contest in Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa’s Signature room.
“It was the greatest strategy in the world,” Callejas said. “If you hit it square, the backboard falls back and ball drops right through. It started playing mind games with you. You wonder if you should be banking them.”
Instead, he stuck with the way his basketball coach father Al had taught him.
“He always said if you don’t hit the rim it will go in,” Callejas said.
The other key to winning was endurance as Borgata’s first-ever skill-based contest—the first anywhere really—proved a remarkable success with a turnout large enough to bump the $10,000 guaranteed prize pool to $20,000.
For Callejas, a day of foul shots came down to one last shot—the difference between an outright win and a tie with Wayne Nelson, local Cedar Creek High School boys basketball coach and Smithville resident.
He made it.
There are a lot of cute slogans that come to mind when announcing the top online winners at BorgataCasino.com and BorgataPoker.com.
You know, stuff like “It pays to play at BorgataCasino.com,” “We’ve got the best jackpots in New Jersey” and “You don’t even have to put on pants to win big at BorgataCasino.com.”
Well, how about “Take a ride on the Borgata Money Boat?”
Looking at the big online winners for March 16 – 22, BorgataCasino.com‘s Money Boat slots hit for $20,000 in jackpots. Add to that another big video poker win and you could say “There’s a lot of winning going on at BorgataCasino.com.”
See, they just come naturally.
Here’s a look at the big online winners for March 16 to March 22:
