What a way to cap off our 15th birthday!
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa was named the 2018 “Property of the Year” during the Global Gaming Awards at this year’s Global Gaming Expo.
This honor caps an already historic year for us at Borgata. Celebrating its 15th year of operations, the unparalleled East Coast resort destination continues to raise the bar in Atlantic City years after its momentous debut, offering guests an electrifying summer season of the biggest names in entertainment, exclusive culinary experiences, and unique casino promotions and special events.
In June, Borgata made history, becoming the first Atlantic City casino to accept legal sports wagers under New Jersey’s new sports betting law, which followed a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in May that struck down a federal ban on sports wagering.
“Congratulations to the team at Borgata for this remarkable achievement. This award is a testament to Borgata’s world-class offerings and showcases MGM Resorts’ leadership in markets throughout the United States and around the world,” said Jim Murren, Chairman and CEO of MGM Resorts International. “We are committed to being the industry leader in every market in which we operate, and we look forward to creating new, innovative and groundbreaking opportunities in New Jersey and nationwide.”
Fifteen years after blazing a trail as a leading entertainment destination, Borgata continued the tradition this summer with a line-up of world-class artists and events, including performances by Britney Spears, Cher, Barry Manilow, Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle, Camila Cabello, and Ringo Starr, as well as a full calendar of Savor Borgata Culinary Series events featuring exclusive celebrity-chef hosted dinners and tasting events and an outdoor food festival.
Marcus Glover, President and Chief Operating Officer for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa said, “This award is welcome validation of the hard work contributed by every member of our Borgata team as we celebrate 15 years of leadership and innovation in Atlantic City. Since entering the market in 2003, Borgata has made it our mission to grow and invest in not only our property and product, but in our team members and guests; offering an unrivaled experience to anyone who walks through our doors.”
