Re: Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa (Atlantic City, NJ) -- FAQ in OP, updated 2016.02.13

Since the change to M-Life does anyone know if Borgata has still been doing the comp thing by the day? Meaning it was better to play 8 hours one day and 0 in the next than to play 4 and 4?

I've been playing a bit at Borgata lately and I have a trip booked next week, looking to maximize my time here instead of asking another hotel for a free room.

There's been no change to the room-comp system that we know of, which means the key is still daily average rather than gross hours.

From the VPfree2 link, it looks like there are only seven MS JoB machines, and five of them are 9/6. (The Super Triple Play ones are the two that aren't.)
Is there a minimum requirement to get tier credits on this? I played for 30 minutes once, an hour once, dumped 500 and got nothing.

Found with some googling:

It's the same 75 TCs per comp dollar as poker.

About $200 bet at video poker gets one comp dollar.

And at slots/VP you have to earn 5 comp dollars to get any (but you still get TCs if you earn less, maybe?).

anyone know how high you would need to bet in the racebook to get a drink ticket?

If not Is there anywhere in Atlantic City that does provide alcohol to race bettors?

I think they give a drink ticket for a $20 or $25 bet, I'm also pretty sure Borg is the only casino left in AC with a racebook.

Gold card will get you a free program and two free drink tickets a day.

Just show your gold card? Or have to place a bet as well?

Just show your Gold Card. Best to go to the right hand most window - where they keep the programs - the manager on duty will record your card number and hand you a free horse program and two drink coupons.

At the front desk when I check in, is there anything I can get from the front desk person? I tried asking for breakfast/buffet with no luck.

If you check in at the Water Club instead of Borgata (you can do it regardless of which tower you actually stay in), you can grab a free apple or two! That's about it though :-)

Are the waitresses still ridiculously hot? Do they still offer a good deal on the poker room?

The waitress? Always... And I must say at PARX too.

Deal on the poker room? If you mean for a room for the night, if you play a certain amount of hours, yes. Make sure you talk to a floor person.

Yes, I worded that terribly. I meant to ask if they offer a poker rate for the hotel rooms on weeknights.

Thanks for deciphering my post.

Anyone hear about the bad beat that was paid out recently? Only problem was that it wasnt a bad beat and a player was only using one card. Heard heads are rolling. Suspensions and terminations a plenty.

If people lose their jobs over mistake, its a pretty clear admission of a mistake and borgata will need to repay the funds into the bad beat fund.

Chances of that happening???
