Knock, knock, knock … Penny.
Knock, knock, knock … Jackpot.
Except for that last bit, is there anyone in America that doesn’t instantly see Sheldon Cooper knocking on Penny’s apartment door when reading that?

Hello slots players. Today Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa would like to take you on a nostalgic trip back in time to the early days of video gaming.
The time was 1981 – long before smart phones, the internet and for that matter personal computers. It was a simpler time, with Ronald Reagan in the White House and only three networks on the TV. And it was also a time when young people were crowded around a bright flashing screen in arcades and pizza parlors around the nation trying to perform one seemingly impossible task.
Namely, trying to get a bunch of frogs across a busy highway without getting them splattered by a semi. Once you got them across the highway, it only got worse as a gator-filled river awaited.
It was called Frogger, and in a video game world where Space Invaders and Pac-Man still held sway, it was a revelation. Yes, it was tough being a frog in the game having to face both traffic and alligators, but for those who developed the proper skills, it was the next big step in video gaming – the game used more than one computer processor, big stuff in 1981.
Almost since the dawn of gaming, people have loved to watch a wheel spin and land on a big payday. We play the big wheel at carnivals, Boardwalk arcades and even on one of the most popular game shows ever made, “Wheel of Fortune” (with a dose of hangman built in.) On casino floors, there’s the Big Six wheel and the spinning of the roulette wheel (not to mention several “Wheel of Fortune” themed slots at Borgata).
And now at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, there’s the 7 Spins slot game from Everi Games. This slot uses Everi’s new Tower 370™ premium top box featuring a wheel option for exclusive game themes. It’s a big wheel at the top of the game that spins during bonus rounds to give players jackpot multipliers…
Regular players of Borgata Slots know that today’s slot machines have a lot more going for them than just some spinning reels. Slots today have themes, whether it’s based on a movie, a TV Show, or general theme like cats or medieval dragon fighting.
As diverse as those themes are, however, all of Borgata’s Slots have one main theme – money.
So when Incredible Technologies – great name for a company, by the way – was looking to launch its Money Rain slot machine with the new Infinity Super Sky Box, it was only appropriate that it make its world premier on Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa’s casino floor where our slots make it rain every day.
