The Borgata poker room has more than 80 tables, which means that there is usually a seat open to jump into a game quickly. Widely regarded as the cleanest and most modern poker room in Atlantic City, The Borgata embraces new technology by running the My Borgata card system. This ensures that rebuys, registrations, and tournament winnings can be correctly allocated via the digital system.
Currently owned by MGM Grand, the Borgata has joined with Bwin.Party Partners as the land-based half of a new online poker offering to residents of Atlantic City. As part of this fully legal and regulated business, online customers can choose to buy chips and cash out winnings in person by visiting the Borgata. This partnership is unsurprising given PartyPoker’s sponsorship of the World Poker Tour, which annually comes to town with the WPT Borgata Poker Open. Autograph hunters know that this brings big names to the casino, such as Daniel Negreanu, one of many high rollers to have captured the title at The Borgata. You can easily join his ranks, as The Borgata hosts regular WPT satellites, plus weekly $15,000 and $25,000 guaranteed tournaments. Even better, the fading of the leaves brings the Borgata Fall Poker Open, where $1 million in guaranteed cash is scattered among the participants. No-limit hold’em is the main game at the Borgata, with the majority of their tables spreading different stakes of no-limit hold’em cash games, plus 24-hour single table sit-and-go tournaments. Pot-limit Omaha and stud are also available on request.
Our members report that the Borgata experience is a thrilling one, even for seasoned players. The seven dozen or so tables of players generate a loud and buzzing atmosphere, especially during major tournaments. As mentioned, the My Borgata card scheme gives players access to the casino comp scheme. At entry level, new players earn comp dollars which can be exchanged for food and premium drinks. These can be banked for future use, or combined with friends or family to make joint orders. Registration to the My Borgata scheme immediately guarantees access to hidden benefits such as email discounts and vouchers, plus access to private parties and hospitality. Regular players will quickly improve their My Borgata membership to Black Label level, which gives access to VIP rooms and buffets, as well as priority service in restaurants and check-in queues. Other privileges include free valet parking and access to very exclusive parties.
