Yeah, Ok, it’s already winter and all, but just go with us here.
Winter is coming to Borgata. And for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa slots players that means the adventurous can delve into the world of Westeros, a land of dragons, treachery and an amazing amount of unexpected major character deaths.
Yes, “Game of Thrones” fans, the ultra-popular HBO show has been adapted to a slot machine by Aristocrat Games. And that means you can try your luck at getting a jackpot with the help of characters such as Daenerys Stormborn, John Snow , Little Finger and Tyrion the Imp. (Note for non-“Game of Thrones” fans, those are not made up names)
You can also look for characters like Rob and Ned Stark, Robert Baratheon and Joffrey and hope you had better luck than they had on the show.

You have to figure that sometimes, it would be pretty ridiculous.
Like say when Seth MacFarlane pitched the idea for the 2012 hit movie “Ted.”
“It’s about this little boy who makes a wish and his teddy bear comes to life. No, really, but the movie’s about years later when they grow up and now Ted is a hard-partying, hard-swearing, wickedly funny sidekick to the guy. And that’s messing stuff up with his girlfriend …”
You have to figure the producer who backed that was a little like the guy who ate the first raw oyster—guts enough to take a big risk and then got a big reward.
“Ted” became a colossal hit, has already spawned a sequel and had millions of people looking at their stuffed animal toys in a new light (not to mention the 1980 cult classic film “Flash Gordon”).
For Aristocrat Games, however, pitching the idea of a slots game based on “Ted” was probably a no brainier and we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa were pretty quick to add it to our line-up of Borgata slots.
Playing the slot, you can expect all the themes so delicately brought up in the film, including these bonus features:
But say it in the United States and one thing springs instantly to mind—will Ralphie get his BB gun?
The 1983 film “A Christmas Story” has become an American classic up there with “It’s a Wonderful Life” and “Miracle on 34th Street.” Better yet, it’s in color.
So, being as that Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is in America and in Atlantic City—an American classic in its own right—what better way to celebrate the holiday season than with a new slot based on “A Christmas Story?”
From Aristocrat Games, A Christmas Story slots features all the iconic aspects of the film in this themed slot, from Ralphie fighting off marauders as Black Bart to the Triple Dog Dare that went so badly for Flick.
Check out these bonus features on the 40-line slot:
You know, bells are nice, but they’re just bells. Cherries, ok, but just cherries. Even stuff like dragons and tigers, fierce sure, but not that cute.
Hey, you know what would be great? OMG—puppies.
Like, for sure, a whole slot machine of OMG, puppies. Little puppies on the reels. Little puppies on the bonuses. Little puppies on the jackpots.
White ones, brown ones, a sort of pink one named Lady.
OMG, that would be sooooo cute.
The inspiration for OMG! Puppies was the success of the earlier OMG! Kittens slots (cat people, jeesh) on WMS’ special 5×4 reels slots presentation.
Built from a foundation of extensive research and Player Driven Innovation™, 5×4 themes are exclusive to WMS’ CPU-NXT®3 platform and provide unmatched video reel slot action designed to engage players.
Here’s some notes on game play for OMG! Puppies.

Who knows what makes a slot a favorite—well, hitting jackpots might be a factor—but when a slot is hot, it’s hot. And Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has just added one of the hottest and most popular slots anywhere—88 Fortunes from Bally Technologies.
Just the title alone has got to make you feel good. “Are there 88 Fortunes to be won on the machine? Will I hit 88 times? Let’s see.”
88 Fortunes is an exciting 4-level progressive that features five reels, 234 ways with 10 Free Games that can be endlessly re-triggered. The Fu Bat Jackpot Feature gives you the opportunity to pick three coins for a chance to win up to the Grand Progressive Jackpot.
With authentic Chinese artwork, the game also features the All Up game style, which gives players the chance to buy gold symbols to increase their winning opportunities. As players buy more symbols, they become eligible for more jackpots.
That was a long time ago, but not much has changed for Mercedes since Janis sang that. The Mercedes Benz remains one of the great cars and great status symbols in the world.
And we here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa think you should have one. So we’ve declared May 17 Mercedes Day in May. We’ll be giving away five Mercedes Benz ML350s from 12pm to 8pm. To enter, just insert your My Borgata card into any slot machine or open a table games rating.
Then, just listen to the announcements as one winner will be named every two hours.
If you’re wondering if you would like to own a Mercedes ML350, consider this:
The ML350 is an SUV with a 3.5 liter V-6 engine, 302 horsepower and a towing capacity of 6,600 pounds. Standard features include a heated front seat, hands-free Bluetooth interface, 9-way air bag protection and a power lift gate (and that’s just naming a few).
Take for example three of Borgata’s newest slots, Tarzan of the Apes from Aristocrat games and LooseGoose and SuperGoose from Ainsworth games.
We all know that Tarzan is the creation of American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs, who wrote about a small boy—that would be Tarzan—who was raised by apes in the African jungle and became a great jungle hero. But did you know Burroughs toyed with other settings for the story, including having Tarzan raised by wild geese? Tarzan would then grow up to hang around golf courses and storm-water retention ponds basically annoying everybody until … No wait, that’s not it.
Actually Tarzan of the Geese protected mythical lost cities where Super Geese protected the Golden Goose that lays the Golden Egg from unscrupulous geese and gold egg hunters with a taste for pâté that threaten scenic waterways … wait, this isn’t right either.
Ok, we admit it. There’s no connection.
Tarzan is Tarzan, Geese are geese. The only connection is that all three of our new slots offer up great slots action and jackpots to players.
Anyone remember New Coke? Didn’t think so.
Sure, Ms. Pac-Man had better game play than plain old Pac-Man and the CGI King Kong created by Peter Jackson took the old stop/action puppet version Kong of the 1933 original to school. But most of the time, originals stand the test of time.
And that’s especially true of classic old slot themes such as Wicked Winnings from Aristocrat Games. It’s one of the most popular titles ever put out by the Australian game maker. Why would you mess with it?
Well, because they gave it the old Peter Jackson treatment.
Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, in a national exclusive, is proud to debut Aristocrat’s new Wicked Winnings Legends game, a class III slots dual game package which takes all the fun of the original classic title to the next level. And by national exclusive, we mean that you’ll only find it here in Atlantic City at Borgata.
Wicked Winnings has become a favorite of players mostly because of its … well, wicked features. Filled with flaming skulls, ravens and the famed She-Devil who takes you to the bonus rounds, the game has some of the most vivid graphics, brightest colors and coolest music you’ll find on a slots games.
And you don’t have to lose a bit of it in Wicked Winnings Legends.
Through the long ages of daytime TV (you know, starting back in, like, the 50s) there have been a handful of shows that break through to become more than just hits, but become full-blown pop culture phenomenon.
Stuff like “Howdy Doody,” “General Hospital,” “People’s Court” and “The Oprah Winfrey Show” for example.
For our age, however, the daytime TV phenomena is “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Some of us (read Old People) can remember when DeGeneres was just a simple stand-up comic who later had her own sitcom in the 90s. But it was in 2003, when she launched her daytime show that DeGeneres passed into the pop culture phenomena category.
That’s 11 years of Emmy awards, dancing and singing with her live-studio audience and her famous giveaways. And let’s not forget how internet savvy she is, as she’s being credited with the most retweeted tweet of the year with the superstar packed selfie she tweeted when she hosted the Oscars.
So what could be the next world left for DeGeneres to conquer?
Slot machines, of course. Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa proudly announces the addition of two new “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” themed slot machines on our casino floor. After all, a show famed for giveaways makes a perfect slot machine theme.
The two new slots are The Ellen DeGeneres Show™ Featuring Ellen’s Dance Party Video Slots and The Ellen DeGeneres Show™ Featuring 12 Days of Giveaways Video Slots from IGT games.
“I’m so excited to have my very own line of slot machines,” DeGeneres says of her new slots. “People are gonna have the chance to play really fun games, have their own mini dance parties and win actual cold, hard cash. I mean, honestly, what more do you want from me?”
