The Borgata Bonus Dollars Challenge is Back!


Borgata Online Casino loves to give out bonuses to its loyal players, and last month proved no exception. The casino went above and beyond to make Christmas week play extra rewarding. Players were challenged to earn as many IRPs as they could each day of the promotion. The more days you played and the more iRPs you earned each day, the more bonus dollars you received!

Now is back with another Bonus Dollars Challenge. The earning period runs from Monday, January 14 through Friday, January 18. So it’s for five days rather than eight. But otherwise, the January  Bonus Dollars Challenge works the same way as the December challenge.

Play as many days as you can during the promotion period–preferably every day, but at least two days–and earn at least 20 iRPs each day. Everyone who plays at least two days and earns at least 20 iRPs per day will receive a bonus. However, the more you play, the bigger your bonus dollars reward will be!

How to Participate in the Borgata Bonus Dollars Challenge

This promotion is open to all registered Borgata Online Casino players. As long as you plan to play at least two of the five promotion days, you should definitely participate. Here’s what you need to do to get started:

  • Log into your account between January 14 and 18, the sooner the better.
  • Go to My Promotions and opt into the current Bonus Dollars Challenge
  • Play your favorite games.

No deposit is required. However, if the balance in your account is low, you might wish to make one to ensure that you have enough funds available to cover your wagers.

What will your bonus be?

All rewards from this promotion will be in the form of bonus dollars credited to your account. The amount will depend on two factors:

  • How many days you play (2-5)
  • How many iRPs you earn each day

The following Bonus Dollars Challenge Rewards Chart shows you specifically how many bonus dollars you will receive based on your play.


Daily iRPs Earned Number of Days
2 3 4 5
20 $5 Bonus Dollars $8 Bonus Dollars $12 Bonus Dollars $20 Bonus Dollars
50 $15 Bonus Dollars $20 Bonus Dollars $30 Bonus Dollars 50 Bonus Dollars
110 $30 Bonus Dollars $40 Bonus Dollars $60 Bonus Dollars $100 Bonus Dollars
225 $50 Bonus Dollars $60 Bonus Dollars $90 Bonus Dollars $150 Bonus Dollars
400 $75 Bonus Dollars $120 Bonus Dollars $180 Bonus Dollars $300 Bonus Dollars


As the chart shows, the smallest bonus you can receive is $5. That is the amount you will get if you only play two days and earn 20 iRPs per day. The largest bonus you can receive is $300. That’s if you play all five days of the promotion and on each of those days earn 400 iRPs.

Bonus Dollars Wagering Requirements

All bonuses earned in this promotion will be determined and awarded on Saturday, January 19.

However, before you will be permitted to withdraw either your bonus dollars or any additional resulting winnings, you will need to meet the casino’s wagering requirements of 15x the bonus.

All games count 100% towards clearing the bonus, so feel free to play any games you wish. You will also continue to earn iRPs on all of these wagers.

However, as with all other bonuses awarded at this casino, you won’t have the luxury of a lot of time to complete the wagering. The casino is giving you only till 11:59 p.m. on the day after the bonus is received.

As soon as the 15x bonus wagering requirement is completed, as long as it is within the very limited 24 hour time frame given you, both the bonus and any resulting winnings (or whatever is left of this money) will be available for you to withdraw. However, opting out, attempting to withdraw unavailable funds prematurely, or failure to complete the wagering on time will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any resulting winnings.

Should you take on the January Borgata Bonus Dollars Challenge?

This is the type of promotion that is geared more towards high rollers than small players. If you have the time and the funds to register the amount of play that will allow you to earn a big bonus, by all means go for it. However, no matter how tempting a large bonus at the end of this promotion would be, don’t chase it if you can’t afford it. Know your limits, and if you have to settle for a small bonus, you need to be okay with that. Keep in mind that on top of the playing you need to do between now and Friday to qualify for a bonus, you will also need to wager the bonus 15 times and only have 24 hours to do so.

That said, as long as it is convenient for you to play this week, you should opt into this offer because it has multiple great features, including all of the following:

You choose your bonus

Many NJ online casino bonuses are for a single fixed amount. If it entails making a large deposit and/or comes with steep wagering requirements, smaller players will be unable to access it. On the other hand, high rollers probably won’t want to bother with a bonus that is only a small fraction of their average wager.

The amount of this bonus is quite flexible. You control how much you wish to and can afford to play.

All games count 100% towards clearing the bonus.

Most NJ online casinos increase the wagering requirements substantially if you choose to clear a bonus with a game other than slots. However, in this Bonus Dollars Challenge, all games count 100%, including those with a much lower house edge than even the best slots.

It’s not unusual at other casinos to face a wagering requirement of 50x the bonus if you choose to clear it with blackjack or video poker. So, as long as you know how to play these games properly, you are getting a real bargain only having to wager the bonus 15x.

Great opportunity to rack up more loyalty points

From the time you start playing to earn your bonus to the time you complete the wagering to clear the bonus, every wager you make counts towards earning more iRPs. So that’s another reward you can look forward to besides the bonus money.

The Bottom Line

At the end of this promotion, whatever your bonus winds up being, assuming you know your limits and don’t exceed them, the bonus will probably also be an amount that makes sense. So clearing it–even though you only have one day–shouldn’t be a problem.
