BorgataPoker.com Review

When New Jersey opened up its online poker market to land-based casinos, a lot of Atlantic City properties scrambled to get up and running, trying to get there first and beat the punch. Not BorgataPoker.com. Yes, they were one of the first poker sites to launch. But they didn’t scramble. The online poker site took its time to package an online poker experience that those who used to play online would love, assembling a team of professionals who get the online poker market and understand exactly what players want. Today, they’re one of the largest online poker communities in New Jersey and a true favorite among new players and seasoned pros alike. We’ll tell you why, right now.

Getting Online
Online poker is legal and regulated in New Jersey, but to play, you need to physically be within state borders. There’s a bit of misconception that you need to be a resident of New Jersey to play. That isn’t true. You can be from California, Washington, Oregon, Florida, or anywhere else to play online poker at BorgataPoker.com. But you need to physically be present in the state to play. It’s a lot like an Atlantic City casino when you think about it. You’re free to play at the Borgata live poker room wherever you’re from.

The poker site uses a variety of technologies to confirm that you’re in state lines before you can play for real money. But they’ve done a great job integrating the technology into the experience so you don’t have to do anything or think twice.

Signup Bonus
And now , when you sign up for BorgataPoker.com at www.houseofcardsradio.com, you will get $20 in cash and bonus when you first sign up. $10 will be credited to your account in cash and the other $10 will be credited as a poker bonus, which will be released after you’ve earned 40 iRewards Points.

 

If you’ve ever played online poker before in the US before the market was regulated in New Jersey, you’re probably familiar with deposit bonuses. BorgataPoker.com remembers them too and they deliver in a big way with a 100% bonus on your first deposit up to $600. Bonuses are released in cash increments of 10% of the deposit amount. To see the 10% bonus released, you need to earn just 8 iRewards Points. More on that in a sec. It’s a very simple release process that everyone can understand.

Game Variety
Borgata Poker offers everything a poker player is looking for, regardless of whether you’re a serious cash game grinder or a casual tournament player. You’ll find multi-table tournaments, Sit & Go’s, and cash games. And the poker site offers Limit Hold’em, No Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Hold’em, Pot Limit Omaha, and Pot-Limit Omaha Hi-Lo.

Tournament Info

In addition to Sit ‘n Go tourneys which run whenever a table fills up, BorgataPoker.com offers a number of scheduled tournaments. Players can choose from shootouts, heads-up tourneys, and more. The site is famous for its $50,000 Guarantee that costs $200 to get into. There’s also a satellite schedule available to help players win their seats to smaller events. That means you can turn just a few bucks into a seat in the $50,000 Guarantee.

Promotions
Borgata Poker has a great VIP Rewards program, but they don’t rest on their laurels. The marketing department is constantly upping the ante with great promotions to entice new players and thank existing ones for being a part of the community. With Poker Happy Hour, players can earn 2x iRewards Points during certain hours of the day. And with a New Depositor Freeroll, new players get entered into a $1,000 Freeroll where tournament tickets are on the line.

VIP Rewards
BorgataPoker.com recognizes that there’s competition for new customers in New Jersey. But they’ve gone all in to give new players a good reason to never play anywhere else. And it goes beyond just great promotions, big guarantees, and great tournaments.

The online poker site offers My Borgata iRewards. In a nutshell, you earn iRewards Points just for playing in real money online poker games. You’ll earn 2 points for every $1 you spend in poker tournament fees and rake. As you collect iRewards Points, you’ll improve your loyalty tier. There are 5 tiers to the program—Red Label, Red Label Plus, Silver Label, Black Label, and Black Label Elites—with each one offering additional incentives.

You can spend you’re iRewards Points on all kinds of things, including tournament entries, clothing, and even hotel rooms and spa packages at Borgata’s Atlantic City property. There’s also a special iRewards Store where you can spend your points on hotel packages, electronics, and more. Or use your iRewards Points to buy into cash tournaments online or satellites at Borgata Resort Casino & Spa. You can satellite into WPT events, the Borgata Poker Open, and others.

Banking
Being a New Jersey online poker site that’s open exclusively to those playing from the Garden State, BorgataPoker.com accepts US dollars only. That means you can deposit in US dollars, play in US dollars, and withdraw your poker winnings in US dollars.

For deposits, Borgata accepts the following payment methods:

• Guaranteed ACH/Bank Transfer
• Online Bank Transfer
• MasterCard
• Visa
• A Borgata Online Prepaid Card
• Payments at the Borgata Cashier at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa
• Neteller (coming soon)

For withdraws, players can take advantage of all of the same methods they use to deposit, with the exception of Visa, MasterCard, and payments at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

Minimum Deposits & Free Play
Borgata Poker offers a lot of great things for the serious poker player, but it’s equally great for players just starting out. New players can test the waters and get in the game with a minimum $10 deposit. What’s more, those who aren’t quite ready to play for real money can access all kinds of free tables where real money isn’t required.

Mac/PC Friendly
BorgataPoker.com works from your web browser. That means whether you’re on a Mac or a PC, all it takes is a WiFi connection to start playing poker. If you don’t have the right plugin installed, you may be asked to install one. But it only takes a minute.

Mobile Offerings
If you’ve got a tablet or a smartphone, you’re likely ready to play on the go. BorgataPoker.com offers a mobile poker platform for iOS and Android. You can download the apps directly on the App Store and Google Play, respectively. The downloads are completely free and give you access to all the same tables and stake levels as what you’ll find on your desktop version. And the apps are fast and smooth, so serious poker players will be impressed.
