Borgata’s online casino offers a fun experience where beginners can jump in with next-to-no experience and minimal commitment. Whether you’re playing on a browser (desktop or laptop) or a mobile device (Android or iOS mobile app), it’s a pretty easy four-step process: just download the software; create and fund your account; and confirm that you’re inside the state of New Jersey.
There are plenty of player perks—sign-up bonuses and rewards based on a tiered system (Red Label, Silver Label, Black Label, etc.), says Steve Nathan, Borgata’s vice president of online gaming.
“We offer deposit match bonus, bonus slot dollars, click card, etc. Players can earn rewards points based on their online play and redeem in our online loyalty store for online or land-based rewards (express comp dollars),” says Nathan.
Reward tier levels are based on monthly earning levels, and each tier provides additional discounts in the loyalty store.
As online gaming gains ground in New Jersey—revenues now hover around $20 million per month, with the record being $21.7 million in March—Borgata’s online gaming arm “is performing to our expectations, growing the market while not cannibalizing land-based gaming revenue,” says Nathan.
He agrees it may take more legal states and intra-state compacts before online gaming takes off for everyone—especially the players.
“Intra-state compacts will definitely help,” says Nathan. “However, online gaming revenues have continued to increase month-over-month and year-over-year.”

Borgata is one of few online casinos that offers craps and Texas hold’em Bonus Poker. Is that still true?
Nathan: Borgata online does offer craps and many variations of Texas hold’em bonus poker.
You have a big selection of blackjack games. What’s the difference between European and American blackjack? Do you have to be an expert to go for the side bets?
Nathan: On casino.theborgata.com, you’re able to play a variety of blackjack games including micro-limit games for low-stakes players, classic single-player blackjack or multi-hand and side-bet blackjack for more experienced players.
If it’s your first time playing online, I’d advise you to start small with a micro-limit game in order to familiarize yourself with the game play. As you feel more comfortable, you can work your way up to different games and higher stakes.
