Borgata Poker - Legal website in the U.S.
While the PokerStars and WSOP websites garner a lot of the online poker action in Pennsylvania, it is good to see that Borgata has been able to carve out a nice little niche for online poker players.
The Borgata Poker home landing page features everything a new poker player could want to start their poker playing experience. That would include advertising related to bonuses and tournaments and direct access to poker playing tutorials where players can learn how to play any of the available poker variants.
The website is well organized and easy to navigate. The actual software platform is powered by PartyPoker. It is available online with a PC and standard web browser or through a downloadable mobile app for iOS and Android devices.
By most measures, the Borgata online poker site is small in terms of traffic. At peak hours, there might be as many as 200 players jockeying for a seat. In non peak hours, players could have trouble finding a full table of poker action. What they will fine is the usual variety of games. The list of poker options includes:
- No limit Hold’em
- limit Hold’em
- Seven Card Stud
- hi-lo and hi-only versions available
- Short Deck Poker
As for stakes, Borgata has something for players at all levels, covering all poker variants. Most games offer stakes that range from 1 cent/2 cent through $25/$50 while some variants have much higher limits for high rollers and poker pros.
Finally, all variants are available as cash games. If players wish to participate in tournaments, Borgata proudly offers daily/weekly/monthly Sit N Go and standard tournaments. On occasion, Borgata will step forward and offer high-stakes special events.
Bonuses and Promotions
Like most online poker websites, Borgata puts most of its bonus focus on intermittent deposit bonuses and the welcome bonus. The welcome bonus features a 100% matching deposit based on the amount of the player's initial deposit up to a maximum bonus of $1000. For a little extra value, new players also get another $20 on the house.
Banking and Customer Service
Borgata poker players benefit from the fact they get access to a number of popular banking options. The list includes credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, AMEX, Discover), PayPal, online banking options, and Paynearme.
If players need assistance, they can contact customer service by calling, email or the website's live chat option.
Verdict: While the Borgata PA poker site is small based on industry standards, they do offer a very nice range of poker variants and stake levels.
