Overview & General Details
The Borgata was one of the first online iGaming sites to go live in New Jersey back in November 2013. It uses the software package from Party Gaming. This partnership with one of the longest established poker sites has given the Borgata customers access to one of the better software packages available in New Jersey.
Access to the games are limited to those inside New Jersey, to comply with the State Regulations.
Software & Interface
The Borgata Casino client offers one of the better software packages currently available in New Jersey. It is a rebranded version of the international Party Gaming software that has had some changes made to it to comply with New Jersey regulations.
The client itself is very easy to use, and the casino is shown as a tab on the Borgata Poker client itself but it is also possible to play using your browser and the Borgata website. If you want to use your browser, you will need to use a location plug-in to allow the Borgata software to verify you are in the state.
The games available are the same, regardless of which avenue you use to play, with the exception of standard Blackjack, which is only available through the browser.
You are able to select which type of game you want to play by clicking on the game categories menu in the box on the right of the window.
The options are for Jackpot Slots, Slots, Video Poker and Table Games, and once selecting one of these categories the page is filled with the game options. When you place your mouse cursor over these game options, the picture changes, giving you a brief explanation of the game type. The rules for each game type are also available on the gaming tables. Just click the “rules” tab on the bottom left of the table to bring up the rules of the game you are playing.
In all, the software is easy to use, clear, and with Party Gaming’s experience, has a long history of use.
Variety is the spice of life, and the Borgata Online casino is spicy enough for most with about 50 different games available. This means that nearly everyone will be able to find the game type they are looking for, whether it’s Blackjack, Roulette, Video Poker or the Progressive Jackpot Slot Machines that could payout up to $1,000,000 on a single spin.
The offerings include 3 (4 through the browser) types of Blackjack, 3 types of Roulette, 4 Types of Video Poker, and more Slots than you could shake a decent sized stick at.
Borgata Casino currently supports six different deposit options in MasterCard, Visa Card, Online Banking Transfer, eCheck, and the Borgata Online Prepaid Card.
The smallest amount you can deposit at one time is $10, and the largest amount is $1,000.
It very easy to use these deposit methods and as you have already had to give your details to set up the account, it’s usually pretty quick as well.
You may run into issues using your credit or debit card if you bank doesn’t support gaming transactions, and this is a policy issue from the banks involved.
Depositing is a pretty easy process to go through, and Live support is available if you encounter issues.
Bonus & Promotions
You can earn up to $120 in bonus cash at Borgata!
$20 No Deposit Bonus
If you’re from New Jersey and don’t yet have an account at Borgata Casino, you can snag some free money to the tune of $20. This money will be given to you without you having to make a deposit and no Borgata Casino bonus code is required!
Simply create a new account, and upon completion, $20 will be added to your account.
Upon doing so you will receive $20 to play with, but you won’t be able to cash out until you wager 1x the bonus, or $20 total. Only play on Slots counts towards this wager requirement and must be met within 14 days.
100% up to $100 Deposit Bonus
Borgata Casino also offers new members a 100% up to $100 match bonus. In other words, if you deposit $50, you will receive a $50 bonus. In order to qualify, you must use the Borgata Casino bonus code FREE when making your deposit. An example of a deposit screen using the code is below:
The $100 bonus has a 1x rollover requirement of the bonus amount only. So a $100 deposit, which receives a $100 bonus, will require $100 to be wagered. Only slots count towards the wagers and must be cleared within 14 days.
The support for the Borgata Poker client is provided by Party Poker, and offers the same options as their own client.
