To be sure, sometimes it’s about pay lines and bonuses. Other times, it’s about the graphics. And sometimes it’s about the theme, you know, “I like kitties so I play the slots with cats on them.”
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?”
But really, do you think it beats taking a shower as a Wooly Mammoth sprays water on you–from its trunk–or having a Dictaphone that’s pretty much just a really smart talking bird?
How about disc brakes? Why, when you can just use your feet? Commercial air travel? You haven’t lived until you’ve flown on a giant pterodactyl (complete with flight attendants).
Now that tech–Stone Age Tech.
We, of course, are talking about life in that crazy town of Bedrock with the lovable Flintstones clan, which will now be a regular on Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s casino floor thanks to a new slot machine from WMS Games.
The Flinstones—immortalized in breakfast cereal and vitamins—was the most successful animated prime-time series ever before The Simpsons began its 88-year run. It ran from 1960 to 1966 and then in reruns pretty much until now. Kind of a prehistoric “The Honeymooners,” it gave us the catch phrase Yaba Daba Doo, a 1994 film and a pretty great version of “Bedrock Twitch” from the B-52s.
And now, it’s bringing you jackpots. The sights, sounds, and of course all of your favorite characters from THE FLINTSTONES television series make their debut on the Gamefield xD cabinet in this fresh take on the prehistoric wheel.
You’re walking alone in the forest because the evil queen has really got it in for you—so you pretty much just took off from the castle. She’s got this snarky mirror that’s been giving her a hard time just because you—the fairest of them all—are a lot better looking than her. Like that’s your fault.
Anyway, you’re in the forest when you see seven small shapes approaching through the underbrush. Are they friendly? Will they help you? You look closely as they come into view and realize that yes, they are … seven velociraptors.
Ok, no help there and they start moving on you pretty quick. So you’re running, trying to keep the electric fences on and dodging T-Rex’s and that one dinosaur that spit the poison on the guy from Seinfeld. It’s pretty hectic and all you can think of is it would be great to find some help, like say a big guy with an axe.
So around the bend you go and there he is … a giant white whale named after that bald guy who plays all the electronic music (or is it the other way around?).
Anyway, now there’s guys in boats with harpoons, dwarves, brachiosaurs, and a bunch of bad apples. It’s mayhem.
There’s only one thing it can all mean—bonus spins and jackpots.
Think about it. Instant coffee, instant ramen noodles, instant messaging, instant downloads, instant chemistry (between two people), instant gratification…
And for slots players, instant bonuses.
From November 14 to November 16, slot players at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa will receive instant bonuses of guaranteed slots dollars through their My Borgata Card. Each player is eligible for up to 10 wins.
Why? Hey, we’re all busy. And while BONUS SLOT DOLLARS® are great anytime, things are always better when they are instant.
So here’s a little Q&A on how the Borgata Instant Bonus works. Meanwhile, we have to go. Our noodles are ready.
But that’s not why it’s called Tuesday. The name actually come from a Viking god of war named Tiw, so it’s Tiw’s day. Kind of like Thursday is named after Thor and so on.
In Latin the name was associated with the Roman god Mars, so that’s why in Spanish its Martes. Because Spanish is a Latin-based language.
More than you wanted to know?
Well, we just mention it because Tuesday has another meeting this October at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa. In simple terms it’s just the greatest weekday ever to win big and party with us here in Atlantic City.
First up, slots players can enjoy 2X Slot Dollars every Tuesday all day at Borgata in October. Plus, it’s a whole month of Toll Free Tuesdays on the Atlantic City Expressway (inbound tolls only).
How many times have you been playing a progressive slot machine at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and you’ve thought to yourself, “If only we had some players from Deadwood South Dakota playing these slots, then these jackpots would get really serious?”
Well, the time has come.
In a first of its kind hook-up between states, Borgata has introduced “Powerbucks” from IGT games—a progressive slots jackpot that links multiple gambling jurisdictions (in this case the states of New Jersey and South Dakota) playing for a common jackpot.
