While online gambling in New Jersey is only available to players physically inside the state, Borgata Casino has launched a full-featured website that allows patrons to play a select number of play money games from anywhere in the world, with the possibility of earning comps which can be redeemed at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.
The site, BorgataFreeCasino.com, went live late last week and offers the chance for players to win coins by playing dozens of slots, along with a handful of table games, video poker machines and bingo games.
How to Earn Free Coins
Upon signing up, patrons initially receive 5,000 coins and can earn another 5,000 by personalizing their account. More coins can be earned in promotions, like the Daily Login Bonus, which awards up to 2,800 coins for logging in on consecutive days.
In addition, players can compete in hourly slot tournaments, which feature a range of buy-ins and prizes:
- Opal Mountain: 3,000 coin entry to win 13,500
- Girls Day out: 5,000 coin entry to win 45,000
- Enchanting Pixie: 10,000 coin entry to win 40,000
- China Shores: 20,000 coin entry to win 180,000
Placing on hourly, daily and weekly slot leaderboards is yet another way to earn extra coins.
Keep in mind, of course, that Borgata Free Casino coins cannot be redeemed for cash, and are to be used purely for entertainment on the games featured on the site. Even so, the play money titles are a fun way to hone your skills, explore new games and enjoy your favorite machines without risking your own money.
Earn Real Borgata Comps
When you add your first and last name along with your birthdate to your account, you’ll receive a $10 bonus in the form of Slot Dollars, which can be used to play real money slots at Borgata’s brick-and-mortar property.
What’s more, if you lose your initial Borgata Free Casino coins, you can purchase additional coins using your credit card and earn points which can be traded for Borgata Comp Dollars, overnight stays at the hotel, and more. Currently, the site offers a 100% coin bonus when you purchase one of the following coin packages:
Points earned on Borgata Free Casino will be incorporated into Borgata’s new M life Rewards loyalty program, which launches June 7th.
Borgata Free Casino Mobile App
Patrons can also play at the Borgata Free Casino on mobile devices with the site’s free android and iOS apps, which are separate from the site’s regular real money apps. While game selection is limited on mobile, there is still a wide selection of titles to choose from. Currently there are 36 slots featured, a blackjack and roulette game, 11 video poker titles and a few keno and bingo games.
Through the app, players can enter slot tournaments, buy coins, view leaderboards, check their messages and view their points level. You can also view a history of your wagers, check your account balance, see current promotions and contact the site directly from the app.
With its play money casino, Borgata joins apps like WSOP.com, Zynga Poker and Jackpot City Casino, all of which spread free games with the option to buy more chips with real cash. The fact that no real money is directly wagered inside these casinos is what allows them to operate inside states where online gambling is not yet legal.
While players can’t bet directly inside Borgata’s new app, it gives patrons the opportunity to continue to play their favorite games outside of the casino, or even the state, and earn real comps which Borgata hopes will entice players to make a trip back to its casino the next time they are in town.
