At home in the Atlantic City, New Jersey area since 2003, Borgata has brought its brick-and-mortar, prestigious casino to the online space, along with a sportsbook, too. Partnering with bwin.party, Borgata became the first online casino to be approved for an online gambling license in the state.
With all of that said, let’s look past the prestige of Borgata and see if its product matches up.
As you can see, Borgata offers plenty of ways to manage your funds at their online casino and sportsbook. Personally, we recommend e-wallets like PayPal and Skrill for quick and secure transactions.
Borgata has a two-part welcome offer that is definitely generous for new users. First, new users will get $20 free. You get this by simply creating an account. It’s that cut and dry.
Next, you will get a 100 percent match up to $600. The most notable part of this is that the playthrough amount is just 1x. To put that in perspective, some online casinos have a 35-40x playthrough. Here, if you deposit $250, bet $250 on the site and you’ll get $250.
Borgata is available not only on desktop, but also mobile browsers and iOS and Android applications, too. The desktop site is beautiful, with a black and purple color scheme.
At the top of the page are the different game types which function as filters, as well as a search bar if you want to look for specific titles. Below this, the games are all listed, broken up by type as well if you just wanted to scroll up and down the page.
Also, going back to the game filters, there is a “More” button which has information about its promotions, loyalty program and banking options.
In the upper-right-hand corner of the screen, this is where you can login or sign up for the site as well as access information about Responsible Gaming. Adjacent to that is a “Help & Support” button, too. It’s simply laid out, yet extremely aesthetically pleasing.
The mobile apps are no different. Everything is smaller of course for the smaller scale screen, but there is also not all of the games on the desktop version. This could be due to such a vast library of games and not wanting to overload the mobile app.
Here are some of the promotions that were offered at Borgata Casino during our reviewing process:
With over 400 games to choose from, here is a breakdown of the options:
Again, not all of these titles are available on iOS and Android, and different games on each platform.
Borgata partners with software companies such as GVC Holdings, IGT, NetEnt, WMS and IGT.
The betting limits at Borgata are not exactly laid out and crystal clear until you enter the game you’re interested in. The different limits vary so widely from game to game the only way to really figure out what the limits are is by visiting each game.
For live dealer games, the hosts will tell you this information prior to playing.
One of Borgata’s biggest downfalls is having no live chat customer support feature. With that said, Borgata does have an expansive FAQ section as well as 24/7 email and phone support. Adding live chat would add more peace of mind for customers, having instant access to help, too.
This is something that can always be added in the future, and should be. This is a must-have in this online gambling landscape.
In the upper-right-hand corner of the screen there is a green “RG” logo for “Responsible Gaming”. Here, Borgata breaks this subject down into different sections. This is page that assists with those feeling like they are experiencing a gambling problem:/p>
All of these sections of the page are totally dedicated to helping the customers. Borgata puts the mental well-being of its customers before anything else and it’s apparent reading this section of the site.
Borgata is a trusted and well-known brand in the casino world. Borgata may have some minor issues such as no live chat and not having all of the games on the mobile app, but at the end of the day, the name recognition is what will encourage users to flock to Borgata.
It also helps that Borgata does have a wonderful library of games, welcome offer and banking options. If you’re in New Jersey, you must check out Borgata. You cannot hang out in Atlantic City and not explore Borgata.
