Hang in there. We all can't wait to get back downstairs again. The employee's and us guest. The Governor did lift some of the restrictions on buffets. But I didn't see the " fine print of what is permitted. I was down last weekend. I thought the food was OK, except for the prime rib . It looked like they overcooked it. If you like your prime rib well down you're ok then.
IMO, I'm just guessing ( hoping ) that we will be downstairs by July 4th weekend. :up:
Just heard last night the Amphora Lounge will be moving back downstairs in a couple weeks and the buffet will open .
The food yesterday was good in the Amphora Lounge .

Me too. I had to saw the beef.
Options so limited, room service came in a box. I'm not a foodie but come on!
Last night the food was pretty good . :up: The prime rib medium rare. Here's a suggestion. when the prime rib looks to pink or rare for your taste. I'll ask the chef to cut me a THICK slice ( about a 1/2 inch thick ) and put it on the grill and cook it medium. It tastes GREAT. A steak off the grill just like at home. :up: :up:

On a more utilitarian note, how do you find Borgata VP? The only TR person with boots on the casino ground is Car, whose multi game predilections are too rich for my blood.

As VP free reports , Borgata video poker is still quite good ! I had a winning year last year so my opinion is slightly slanted !!

Yes, it's still good. 9/6 JOB, 9/5 SDB a 99.69% game. Next time down, I'll check on availability of the good games. They have been shrinking. A row of multi strikes, 4 Game Kings with SDB and a Bonus deuces game that is close to 99%. Also, one row of Multi denomination slant tops near the Amphora Lounge that have 9/6 JOB. Haven't checked the games at the B-Bar in a while, but they used to have Game Kings with 9/6 JOB and 9/5 SDB. Didn't like playing there because of the smoke and sticky buttons from all the spilled drinks.

Have you look at the BetMGM sports bar next to the horse betting room. I think the JOB is 8/5 there. I'm not sure what the other games are.
They also removed 5 of the triple play joker poker progressive machines. That progressive jackpot was over $110,000 when I left yesterday. They also removed 5 spin poker machines.
IMO with the new computer system they installed. A lot of the old machines that were there since they opened will be removed. You still can't download slot dollars into those old machines. :D

I play at borgata and after they integrated with new MGM software I am unable to use my slot dollars and bonus slot dollars in 9/6 jacks or better as I was able to prior to software integration. Any thoughts on this or information?

The multi strikes are the original machines that they had when they opened. Hope they stay.
