Borgata's New Video Poker Section

Post by JIMDUECE`SWILD »

:up: Good News : I notice today that the Borgata is putting in a Video Poker Section in the casino.
This section is located back in the corner of the casino. Across from the restaurants Angeline's, Bobby Flay, and Bread & Butter. They removed all those old slot machine and putting VP machine. Right now it's still under construction. They had the table top machines there with many more to install.
I ask the workers when will it be up and running . What the target date it will open up. Humorously he said " last week. :lol: :lol:

I have become such a creature of habit at the bar, and it's treated me well. But the machines have their unfortunate quirks. Something always seems to be wrong. Just worn down and old. I may have to switch over to the new undoubtedly quieter area. It's basically a raucous crowd letting its hair down on the weekend. They're a chore to block out.

I copied this from another site.

Just an FYI for Borgata video poker players - they're relocating the majority of the machines to the back, near Level One/sports bar. I was there Monday-Thursday and all of the machines in front of B-Bar and the cashier cage are moved, as are the banks of slant tops to the right of Amphora Lounge. Last night they moved a bank of Super Times Pay machines that have been near the Game Kings and Ultimate X banks. Surprised that they won't have the relocated machines working by the weekend, but when I left at 3 p.m. Thursday, the whole back area was still roped off and machines turned off or "out of service."

I always hated to play VP in that cage area. Too busy and distracting, so good riddance. Is the B Bar itself still the same? That’s my milieu. Keep it simple, MGM.

B-BAR now has live music on Saturday night. I'm not sure about Friday night.
The area that they are moving the VP machine to is a nice quite area with a bathroom close by.
I like like playing at the MGM Sportsbar because smoking is not permitted in the restaurant. They also play good music there.

I leave well before any music. Interested in patronizing the new area. Fully untethered from CET play with TC goal met. I can just play off FP there before leaving town.

FAA, what benefits do you reap in the CET Total Rewards program at the platinum level which are not available to you at the gold level? To me: you are chasing your tail if all you are trying to be is any level other than gold with CET.
