Buzzer Beater Week at Borgata Casino


 In 2016 Villanova edged out North Carolina in a thrilling buzzer beater to be crowned the National NCAA Men’s Basketball Champion. However, last year, North Carolina made up for that huge disappointment by triumphing over Gonzaga to take the title. Will the Tarheels repeat as champions in 2018, or will the honor go to one of the other 63 participants?

It’s March Madness time again. But today is only day 1, so the crowning of this year’s champion is still a long way off. Meanwhile, fasten your seat belts for two straight weeks of fierce competition. Then follow along as the field gets narrowed down to 32, 16, 8, the final four, and finally the last two teams remaining. Along the way, there will inevitably be some blowouts, but also more than a few nail-biters.

That’s why the special promotion that is currently underway at Borgata Online Casino could not be more perfectly timed. Much like different teams in the NCAA tournament are scheduled to play at different times on different days, the Borgata Buzzer Beater promotion also has specific days and times. Each day, and only during the specified hours, the casino has a different special offer. Therefore, in order to take advantage before it’s too late, you really have to be on the ball. Just like the teams on the court, if you want your play to count, you have to be a buzzer beater!

Dates for the Borgata Buzzer Beater Promotion

The Borgata Buzzer Beater Promotion actually started two days before the start of the March Madness basketball action, Tuesday, March 13. If you were aware of that fact and took advantage, great. Otherwise, the Mystery Prize and Play and Earn Promotions, for Tuesday, 3/13 and Wednesday, 3/14, respectively, are over. But here’s the good news. still has four more exciting buzzer beater offers: a brand new one for each remaining day this week, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Here is a description of each offer and how and when to opt into it.

Buzzer Beater for Thursday, March 15: 3x iRPs

This promotion is valid on Thursday, March 15 only from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.

In order to participate, here is what you need to do:

  • Log into your account on Thursday, March 15 between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m.
  • Go to the Promotions tab and opt into the Buzzer Beater 3x iRPs
  • Play your favorite games.

You will earn 3x the usual loyalty points (iRPs) on all of your play between 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. Note that the total number of iRPs you can earn is capped at 5,000.

Buzzer Beater for Friday, March 16: Deposit Match

This promotion is valid on Friday, March 16 only from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

The terms and conditions were not entirely clear as laid out on the website. However, Customer Support was very helpful in answering all of my questions, so I can now share this information with you. If you would like to participate in this promotion, you need to do the following.

  • Log into your account on Friday, March 16 between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m.
  • Go to the Bonus tab and opt into the Buzzer Beater Deposit Match.
  • Read carefully the notice that will then appear regarding the minimum deposit to qualify for a bonus, the percentage of your deposit that the casino will match, and the number of times the bonus must be wagered. Also note any specified maximum deposit that the casino will count to determine your bonus. If you deposit less than the minimum, you won’t get any bonus. If you deposit more than the minimum, you may receive a larger bonus, but only up to a point (the bonus cap).
  • Make a single qualifying deposit. Your bonus will be credited to your account instantly.

After receiving your bonus, you will have to wager it the number of times indicated. You can play any game you wish, and it will count the full 100%. However, you will have to start playing ASAP. All of the necessary wagering must be completed before 11:59 p.m. the following day.

By the way, players earn loyalty points on all of their wagers, including those made with the bonus money as well as their own money.

While the bonus playthrough is in progress, your deposit, bonus, and any resulting winnings are all locked into your account and unavailable for withdrawal. As soon as all of the required wagering is completed, however, provided it is within the allotted 24 hour time frame, these funds (or what’s left of them) will become available to you. Any attempted premature withdrawal of unavailable funds or failure to complete the wagering in time will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any related winnings.

Buzzer Beater for Saturday, March 17: Bonus Back

Saturday is St. Patrick’s Day, so hopefully, the Luck of the Irish will be with you all day.  But even if it isn’t, from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Borgata has you covered with a 20% playback bonus. Here is what you need to do to opt into this offer.

  • Log into your account on Saturday, March 17 between 8 a.m. and 11 a.m.
  • Go to the Promotions tab and opt into the Buzzer Beater Bonus Back
  • Go to the Cashier tab and make a single deposit of $100 or more.
  • Play any game you wish.

If your total play during the promotion period results in a net loss, you will receive 20% of your net losses back as bonus dollars, up to $100 (on a net loss of $500 or more).

If you qualify for a bonus, you will receive it as soon as the promotion period ends. The bonus is then subject to a 15x wagering requirement (on any game), which must be met by 11:55 p.m. the next day.

Players earn loyalty points on all their wagers, including those made with the bonus as well as their own money. Then, as soon as the wagering is completed, provided it is within the specified time period, your deposit, bonus, and any winnings from the bonus will all become available for withdrawal.

Buzzer Beater for Sunday, March 18: Slot Tournament Leaderboard

Usually when you play slots, it’s just you against the house. But on Sunday, March 18, is giving you three chances to compete against other players. If you’re lucky enough to be in the top 25 in any of these tournaments, you make the final Leaderboard and you’re in the money!

But first, you need to opt into the Slot Tournament Leaderboard promotion, as indicated below:

  • Log into your account on Sunday March 18.
  • Go to the Promotions tab and opt into each of the following Buzzer Beater Slot Tournament Leaderboards:

12 p.m.-12:30 p.m.

1 p.m.-1:30 p.m.

2 p.m.-2:30 p.m.

For each dollar you win playing, you receive one point in the Leaderboard for that tournament. The top 25 places in each tournament each receive a share of $250 bonus dollars. The following matrices show the payouts for each tournament.




Prizes will be awarded 24 hours after the end of the promotion. However, prior to being available for withdrawal, all bonus dollars won in the tournaments have a 15x bonus wagering requirement.

You can play any game you wish. However, all wagering must be completed within 24 hours.


 If you’re a player, all of these promotions are worthwhile. However, you will need the time and funds to play every day to derive the maximum benefit. Otherwise, pick the promotions you like best and save your playing time for those days.

The casino allows you to access more than one promotion at a time. So you will be able to claim the next day’s offer even if you haven’t finished all of the wagering to clear the previous day’s bonus. However, you can only clear one bonus at a time.

This promotion is aptly named. It’s a Buzzer Beater in every sense of the word. Not only must you beat the final buzzer when you opt into the promotion. You have another buzzer to beat to satisfy the related wagering requirements. 24 hours is not a lot of time to wager a bonus 15x, but that is all you get.

If you think you’re up to the challenge, this week’s daily Borgata Buzzer Beater promotions could be very profitable.. At the very least, you will have a lot of fun trying.
