Two More Borgata Online Casino Challenges


This week Borgata Online Casino is repeating the same popular Bonus Dollars Challenge I described for you two weeks ago when it ran from Monday January 14 through Friday, January 18.

It’s rare for a NJ online casino to offer the identical promotion again after such a short interval of time. Yet that is exactly what this casino is doing this week.

In addition, as if the Bonus Dollars Challenge isn’t enough to keep you busy, today, Tuesday, January 29 only, if you can earn 400 iRPs or more, you will receive a $100 dining credit at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City!

Can you meet this week’s two challenges. If you’re a player, there’s no time like the present to find out!

Bonus Dollars Challenge

This week’s Bonus Dollars Challenge got underway Monday, January 28 and continues until 11:59 p.m. Friday, February 1.

You don’t have to play every day of the promotion to qualify for a bonus, although it would be ideal if you can. As long as you play at least two days and earn at least 20 iRPs each day, a bonus is guaranteed. However, the more your play, the bigger your bonus!

How to Participate in the Bonus Dollars Challenge

If you’re a registered Borgata Online Casino player and have time to play at least two days during the promotion period, by all means take advantage of this offer. And feel free to play your favorite games, too, since all of your play will count. To get started, simply do the following:

  •  Log into your account during the Jan. 28 – Feb. 1 promotion period, but the sooner the better.
  • Go to My Promotions and opt into this week’s Bonus Dollars Challenge
  • Play your favorite online casino games.

No deposit is required, and making one will not necessarily entitle you to a bigger bonus. The size of your bonus will depend solely on the amount of your play. Therefore, if your account balance is low and you don’t think it’s enough to cover your play this week, consider making a deposit so you will be adequately funded. Otherwise, if you have enough funds in your account for your usual level of wagers, you don’t need to make a deposit.

Receiving Your Bonus

If your play during the five-day promotion period entitles you to a reward, Saturday, February 2, the day after the promotion period ends, is when you will receive it. All rewards are in the form of bonus dollars credited to your account.

The following chart shows the various possible bonus amounts you can receive. Keep in mind that these two factors are what will determine the size of your bonus:

  •  Number of days played (2-5)
  • How many iRPs you earn each day


Daily iRPs Earned Number of Days
2 3 4 5    
20 $5 Bonus


$8 Bonus


$12 Bonus


$20 Bonus


50 $15 Bonus Dollars $20 Bonus


$30 Bonus


50 Bonus


110 $30 Bonus Dollars $40 Bonus


$60 Bonus


$100 Bonus


225 $50 Bonus Dollars $60 Bonus


$90 Bonus


$150 Bonus Dollars    
400 $75 Bonus Dollars $120 Bonus Dollars $180 Bonus Dollars $300 Bonus




As the above chart shows, the size of the bonus can vary considerably. The smallest bonus you can receive is only $5. If you only play the minimum of two days, earning 20 iRPs per day, that is all your bonus will be. In order to get a bigger bonus, you will need to play more days and/or for a larger amount each day. If you play all five days of the promotion and also earn 400 iRPs each day, you will be rewarded with a whopping $300 bonus, the maximum amount possible.

Bonus Dollars Wagering Requirements

As with any other bonus money you might receive from Borgata Online Casino, the bonus dollars awarded to you in this challenge come with additional wagering requirements. Before you will be permitted to withdraw either the bonus itself or any additional winnings associated with it, you will need to wager the bonus 15x.

Feel free to play any game you wish, as all games count 100% towards clearing the bonus. Furthermore, on top of all of the iRPs you already earned to qualify for the bonus, you will earn more iRPs on all of your wagers to clear the bonus, including those made with the bonus money as well as your own money.

Now if only the Borgata Online Casino would also give you an extended period of time to clear the bonus, like most other NJ online casinos. But that is not the case. All of the required wagering must be completely by 11:59 p.m. on the day after you receive the bonus.

Assuming you are able to complete the wagering in time, the good news is that both the bonus and any resulting winnings (or whatever is left of this money) will be fully available for withdrawal. However, opting out, any premature attempt to withdraw unavailable funds, or failure to complete the wagering on time will result in forfeiture of both the bonus and any resulting winnings.

Play and Dine Offer

Whereas the Borgata Bonus Challenge offers a wide enough range of rewards so that smaller players can potentially benefit, too, this Play and Dine Offer, which requires earning 400 iRPs in a single day, is for high rollers only. If you think you can meet the challenge, here’s what you need to do to participate:

  • Log into your account on January 29.
  • Go to My Promotions and opt into the Play & Dine offer.
  • Earn 400 iRPs playing your favorite games.
Terms and Conditions

If your play qualifies, you will be notified via email within four days. You then have from January 30 to April 30, 2019 to redeem your reward for a $100 dining credit at any Borgata restaurant. Gratuities are not included.

Are this week’s two Borgata Online Casino challenges worth your time?

Play and Dine Offer

As mentioned above, this offer is only worth your time, if you can afford the considerable amount of play in a very short period of time necessary to qualify for the reward. If not, use some of the winnings from your play or comp dollars you accumulate from your play over a period of time towards dinner at a top Borgata restaurant.

Bonus Dollars Challenge

This is another promotion that is geared more towards high rollers than small players. However, in this case, there is a wide range of possible rewards, so even if a big bonus is out of reach, you can still qualify for a smaller one.

The one thing you should not do is play beyond your means just to try to qualify for one of the larger bonuses. Know your limits and stick to them. Remember that in addition to the wagering to earn a bonus, once you get it, within the next 24 hours, you have to wager the bonus 15x as well. So don’t take on more than you can realistically handle.

Rather than setting a uniform bonus for everybody, the casino is giving you control over how much you playing you will do and in turn the size of your bonus. So use this option wisely.

Another area where you have control is in which games you select for clearing the bonus. Since all games count 100%, your best bet is to play only games with a very low house edge. For example, if you know the correct basic strategy for blackjack or video poker, either one would be an excellent choice. Both of these games, played correctly, have a much lower house edge than even the best slots.

Lastly, even if your bonus award is small, you should still come away from this promotion with a lot of extra loyalty points, which you can think of as a bonus on top of a bonus.
