"Our guests can enjoy a complete gaming, entertainment, and hospitality experience including our recently opened $200 million dollar expansion featuring restaurants, casino space, and an 85-table poker room," he added.
Borgata has also announced that it will be giving away $250,000 in cash prizes and Sunday will mark the continuation of the Borgata Summer Poker Open Tournament which runs through July 20th as scheduled prior to the state imposed shutdown.
Borgata is a joint venture of Boyd Gaming Corporations and MGM mirage located ar Renaissance Pointe in Atlantic City.
Borgata joins the 12 other casinos in Atlantic City in opening their doors following the announcement that Gov. Jon Corzine has signed the executive order lifting the government shutdown allowing the casinos to resume operations.
