With ties to the Garden State and Atlantic City since 2003, Borgata received their online gambling permit all the way back in 2013. The MGM-owned product also recently launched a sportsbook earlier this year, as they look to expand on their online gambling portfolio.
As one of the most trusted names in all of Atlantic City, coupled with being licensed and regulated by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, the Borgata is a location you should not fret over. Though they may be a safe entity, what does that mean for their product? Let’s dive in.

Although there is no PayPal, Borgata still has myriad banking options for you to choose from. PayPal is something that they could always add later if they choose to, but in the interim, what they do offer is more than OK. The only plus side to PayPal is that it’s user-friendly to access and spend your balance.
Borgata offers two different promotions for new customers.
For new customers, upon signing up you will receive $20 in bonus money. In order to access the bonus money, players must complete a 1x playthrough, but can only be spent on slot games. This means, to get the $20, you must wager $20 on the site. This initial bonus might not be of interest to live casino fans, however it is a good way to explore different elements of the Borgata Casino product.
On top of that, Borgata also offers a deposit bonus of a 100 percent match up to $600. In order to access this bonus money, players must complete a 10x playthrough. Meaning, if you deposit $100, in order to have access to withdrawing the bonus money, you must wager $1000 on the site. The good news is that this bonus is not limited to slots and can be spent on live dealer games as well.
To access both of these, players must Opt-In on their bonuses page.
For those coming from the playMGM casino, the signup process is exactly the same. It’s broken down into four steps and asks you all of the same questions you’re used to seeing on a registration process.
This means, you’ll need to give information such as name, address, zip code, last four digits of your social security number, an email, a password, and other contact information. Though this may sound like a lot of information, it’s all necessary in complying with Borgata’s geolocation software to ensure you are in the state of New Jersey when gambling and all winnings are taxable.
While Borgata doesn’t exactly say how long each method should take in order to get your money back, using the site personally, we got our money in a timely manner, using online banking—it took just a couple of days.

Equipped with an aesthetically pleasing color scheme on all of their platforms (desktop, Android and iOS), Borgata is immediately appealing to a new customer—the purple for their casino is a nice touch.
On their casino page, there are tabs to click on for their poker room and sportsbook. Below that, you can sort through the different games by clicking on the multiple types, including live casino, as well as a “More” drop-down menu that has information on promotions, banking options, loyalty stuff and much more. To the right of that is a search bar for games. Below all of these options, though, are the games in order of their type.
Going from desktop to mobile applications, users will find that they are nearly identical. Of course, mobile is squished a bit more to fit the mobile screen, but everything is laid out exactly the same, from how to icons are laid out to the different panes of information.
Of all their games, Borgata offers a solid variety of live casino/dealer games. With four titles to choose from, players can choose between both male and female hosted games such as Blackjack and Unlimited Blackjack, Roulette and Baccarat, all coming on an incredibly interactive and friendly high definition screen medium.
The tables are open every day from 10am till 4am and can be accessed on both desktop and mobile.
While Borgata doesn’t directly outline what their betting limits are, it’s safe to assume they are a wide range across all of their games. Borgata does not have an exclusive VIP Program, but they do have their iRewards Program.
Again, labeled as the iRewards Program, players can points based on cash spent on the site, which can be redeemed for bonus money, free wheel spins and other tangible items such as electronics. The program is broken up into five tiers:
Borgata offers a complete breakdown of how much cash equals one point in more detail on their loyalty page.
The transparency here will go a long way and is something we admired immediately when we saw it. Sometimes these things are tucked away in terms and conditions, but Borgata is up front with what they are offering, which was a nice change of pace.
Found at the bottom of the page, players can find not only the FAQ section, but the Contact Us button, which links you to a few options for 24/7 support. These include an email form, a live chat or even a telephone number to call them directly.
Responsible Gaming is something that online casinos and sportsbook are taking extremely seriously with the new laws in place. On their homepage, you will find the green “Responsible Gaming” logo which, upon clicking on, brings you to a page chock full of information on the subject.
With items such as definitions on problem gambling, warning signs, hotlines to contact, organizations and websites to visit and other in-house remedies such as deposit and session limits to assist in limiting yourself. This is an initiative we are proud to see in the online gambling community.
Borgata has everything you’d need in terms of live dealer and other gambling products. As mentioned, the only thing we wish they had was PayPal, but in the end, that’s such a minor concern. Borgata is your one-stop-shop for all your online gambling needs and we highly recommend them as an outlet to spend your time with.
