As another season comes to a close and we all begin to count the days until training camp begins again, we’d just like to pause to recognize all of our loyal customers who participated in this year’s Pick the Pros football promotion. Borgata awarded over $1 million in cash, plus $660,000 in Bonus Slot Dollar Prize Money throughout year. The popular contest, which challenges My Borgata card members to pick the most weekly winners in pro football, received over 520,000 entries this season via our many Pick the Pros kiosks located on the casino floor. That’s some Super Bowl sized game playing!
Another week, another list of players who have every reason to rave about online gaming in New Jersey. This week, we saw lots of slots players turn tiny bets into big payouts — on their desktop and on the go. And on the poker side, we saw one player make a name for himself as he stormed through multiple tourneys. Here’s a snapshot at what happened this week at BorgataPoker.com and BorgataCasino.com.
We don’t claim to have the cure for the January blahs, but if there’s one place that comes pretty close, it’s Borgata. Every week, we watch players from all over New Jersey win big playing online casino games and online poker. Here’s a look at who can’t stop smiling this week.
There was something magical about the number 10 the week of January 15th. From a $10 bet that netted one player thousands in cash to two separate $10,000 payouts at the slots, this week can only be described as a perfect 10. Here’s a look at this week’s big online gaming winners:
If you’re a fan of playing Borgata’s wide assortment of slot machines, we have some very interesting information for you. A new infographic shows just how successful Borgata players were in 2016, and might give you some motivation to visit the East Coast’s premiere gaming and entertainment destination.
In 2016, Borgata awarded $329,733,889 in jackpots! That’s a lot of coins! Better yet, we had 121,667 hand pays throughout 2016. Our biggest jackpot of the year? One lucky winner on February 13, 2016 walked away with $510,379.
Video poker takes center stage this week as we present the top online winners at BorgataCasino.com, where we had a pair of $4K jackpots and three big wins totaling over $10,000 in prize money.
And that includes a Christmas Day hit for John from Toms River on the Deuces Wild game.
Holiday jackpots … is there anything better?
It was another big week for online slots at BorgataCasino.com as about $23,000 in jackpots were won by Borgata players—and right in the middle of the holiday season to boot.
The big jackpot of the week was won by Jason from Sawaren New jersey who pocketed $11,771 on the Zeus III slot game. That seems appropriate as there was another Jason who had some dealings with Zeus back in the day, but things went a lot less pleasantly for him.
Every day Borgata’s online sites hand out impressive winnings, but when it comes to BorgataPoker.com, Sunday may be the most impressive day of all. On Sunday’s we offer up guaranteed tournaments such as the Sunday $40K Guaranteed, the Sunday Seconds $10K Guaranteed tournament and the Sunday Wrap-Up $5K Guaranteed Six-Max tournament.
Those tournaments alone gave BorgataPoker.com players more than $25,000 in winnings this week led by an $8,000 win by pure_reason ( a great screen name) in the Sunday $40K.
We’ve talked before about the excitement of hitting a $10,000 jackpot at BorgataCasino.com in our weekly look at Borgata’s big online winners for the week. Well, how about $12,000?
That was the big jackpot at BorgataCasino.com for November 28 through December 4 as Jakki from East Rutherford, New Jersey, made a $15 bet on the Triple Play Draw Poker video poker game and won $12,000. That’s video poker of course, but the trusty Loot EnKhamun slot also hit again for $7,500 for the big slot jackpot.
All in all, the big jackpots this week totaled better than $24K. Now that’s exciting!
BorgataPoker.com players had another sweep – in this case the top four finishes – of the $40K Guaranteed Sunday tournament with combined winnings of more than $23,000. The tournament is played in conjunction with our partners at PartyPoker.
The popularity of our Sunday $40K tournament is keeping it at one of the highest guaranteed prize pools for online play in New Jersey.
