New Jersey Native Wins $2 Million Playing Slots at Borgata - Tuesday 21st of February 2006

ATLANTIC CITY, New Jersey Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa once again proves that it pays to play slots. A Roseland, New Jersey resident won more than $2 million last night playing a nickel Wheel of Fortune machine at Borgata. The winner was playing the slot machine for just twenty-minutes and had invested only $100.

Last night's jackpot marks the third slot payout of over one million dollars since the property opened in July 2003. Among Borgata's big winners is Guadalupe Lopez, the mother of superstar Jennifer Lopez, who was playing the Wheel of Fortune slot machine in 2004 and hit a $2.4 million jackpot.

Adding to the excitement and the winnings Borgata is in the midst of its biggest promotion ever, the PowerPrize Jackpot and Players Card Bonus. Within less than three months since its debut, the PowerPrize Jackpot has paid $2.4 million in cash to 19 lucky winners and has awarded 9,324 My Borgata cardholders with $366,875 in bonus slot dollars.

"Borgata has increasingly become known as the premier place in Atlantic City to stay, play, and win big," said Larry Mullin, President and Chief Operating Officer for Borgata. "It's always exciting when we have big jackpots, and with the recent addition of The PowerPrize Jackpot and Players Card Bonus, everyone with a My Borgata card is a guaranteed winner."

Debuting in early December 2005 as Borgata's biggest sweepstakes to date, The PowerPrize Jackpot starts at $100,000 and must pay out before the jackpot reaches $150,000. Every time the jackpot hits, one lucky customer playing slots with a My Borgata card will be randomly selected to win the PowerPrize Jackpot. In addition, everyone playing slots with a My Borgata card when the PowerPrize Jackpot hits wins the Players Card Bonus $25 or $50 in bonus slot dollars.
