Borgata Weekly and Monthly Cash Prizes


May is a great month to be playing at, as the casino has just launched an exciting month-long $40,000 Cash Leaderboard promotion. All month long, weekly and monthly cash prizes will be given away. If you play enough to place on the leaderboard, you’re in the money!

How the May Cash Leaderboard Giveaway Works

This promotion started on Tuesday, May 1. Your last chance to earn a spot on one of the four weekly leaderboards is Monday, May 28. However, you have three more days after that–May 29, 30 and 31–to try to earn a spot on the monthly leaderboard.

Leaderboard standings will be calculated strictly on the basis of number of iRPs earned through play during the qualifying period. All games count, with the exception of certain designated new games. Additional iRPs earned through point multipliers do not count.

How Much Can You Win?

Weekly Cash Prizes

Each week in May, the casino will give away $5,000 in cash prizes. This is not bonus money that comes with additional wagering requirements, but actual cash you can withdraw from your account immediately! The top five players each week will share in the bounty.

The earning periods for the four monthly leaderboards are as follows:

  • Week 1: Tuesday, May 1 through Monday, May 7
  • Week 2: Tuesday, May 8 through Monday, May 14
  • Week 3: Tuesday, May 15 through Monday, May 21
  • Week 4: Tuesday, May 22 through Monday, May 28
Monthly Cash Prizes

In addition, all month long, all of your play counts towards earning a spot on the Monthly Cash Leaderboard, with a whopping $20,000 prize pool--quadruple the size of each of the weekly prize pools!.

The monthly leaderboard is separate from the four weekly leaderboards. At the end of the month, cash prizes (not bonus money) will be awarded to the top 10 players.

The two charts below show how the cash prizes on the weekly and monthly leaderboards will be distributed to the top 5 and top 10 players, respectively.


Tuesday – Monday 1st $2,500 CASH
2nd $1,000 CASH
3rd-5th $500 CASH


May 1 – 31, 2018 1st $10,000 CASH
2nd $5,000 CASH
3rd-4th $1,000 CASH
5th – 10th $500 CASH


All together, between the four weekly leaderboards and the monthly leaderboard, will be giving away $40,000 in cash prizes!

How to Participate and Possibly Win One or More Cash Prizes in the $40,000 Cash Leaderboard Giveaway

This promotion is open to all registered Borgata Online Casino players. Here is what you need to do to participate.

  • Log into your account every day in May, or as often as possible.
  • Play your favorite games.

There is no need to opt into this offer specifically. Simply by logging in, you are automatically entered and all of your qualifying play that day will count.

When the Leaderboard Winners’ Cash Prizes Will Be Awarded

Every Tuesday in May, starting with May 8 and ending with May 29, the five players who have earned the most iRPs during the previous week (Tuesday through Monday) will win a share of the weekly cash prize pool of $5,000, as indicated in the above chart.

Then, on Friday, June 1, the top 10 iRP earners for the entire month of May will each win a share of the $20,000 in cash prizes up for grabs (as per the chart) in the monthly cash leaderboard.

All cash prizes so awarded are available for immediate withdrawal. Players should also note that the cash prizes in this promotion may be reportable as taxable income.

Opportunity to Win a Mother’s Day Spa Getaway or Bonus Money, Too

At the same time that you are earning iRPs toward one or more great cash prizes, your play from May 1 through May 4 also counts towards possibly winning an overnight stay at the Borgata in Atlantic City and/or bonus money, as well.

Bonus Dollars Challenge

Your play over the first four days of May may qualify you for from $5 to $300 in bonus money. See my post of May 2 for the details.

Mother’s Day Spa Package and Bonus Money Giveaway

Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 14, so you still have some time, but not a lot. It’s certainly not too soon to start thinking about it now, especially if you’re undecided about what to get your mom or other special person in your life.

Borgata Online Casino is giving you a chance to win the perfect gift, too–an overnight stay in a classic room at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City plus a $200 spa credit plus a $150 fine dining credit.

That’s the Grand Prize in the Mother’s Day Spa Package and Bonus Dollars giveaway, but the remaining prizes of $50 or $25 bonus dollars are far from shabby as well.

As you will see in the following chart, a total of 25 prizes will be awarded.



How to Earn Entries for the Mother’s Day Spa Package and Bonus Money Giveaway

There’s still time to participate in this promotion. But you will have to hurry because the period for earning entries ends tomorrow. Here are the steps to follow.

  • Log into your account between May 1 and May 4.
  • Go to Account – My Promotions and opt into the Mother’s Day Spa Package Giveaway

You will automatically receive one free entry into the drawing. However, you can earn additional entries based on play, one entry for each 20 iRPs earned. Only slot play counts.

Players are limited to 10 entries per person.

Terms and Conditions

On Monday, May 7, the casino will hold a random drawing among all eligible entries, at which time the 25 winners will be determined. All winners will be notified via email the following day.

Grand Prize

The Grand Prize winner will have up to 30 days to redeem the prize and until July 31 to use it. The room, fine dining credit, and spa credit must all be booked for and used on the same day. All bookings are subject to availability, and no cash substitute is available.

Bonus Dollars

Any bonus money awarded in this promotion is also non-exchangeable and non-transferable. Prior to being permitted to withdraw either the bonus itself or any winnings therefrom, the bonus must be wagered 1x. Only slot play counts, and the necessary wagering must be completed by 11:59 p.m. the day after receipt.

As always, players receive loyalty points (iRPs) on all wagers. However, opting out, attempting to withdraw unavailable funds prematurely, or failing to complete the wagering within the 24 hour time period will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any resulting winnings.


May has barely begun, and already is offering not one, not two, but three great promotions at once. Even if you missed the first two days and start today, there’s still time to put yourself in a possible position to win a prize. And don’t forget–you have the rest of this week plus three more weeks in May to rack up iRPs for the leaderboard cash prizes.

Small players will be at a disadvantage in all of the promotions. However, you might still qualify for a bonus in the Bonus Dollars Challenge and/or get lucky in the drawing. While your chances for winning any of the cash prizes are slim, whatever iRPs you earn from simply playing as usual will, of course, count towards other rewards. That makes all three promotions a WIN – WIN – WIN deal for everybody!
