ATLANTIC CITY, NJ (August 26, 2015) –  Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is calling all fans to pick, win, and cash in again this football season by bringing back its extremely popular Pick The Pros® football challenge, awarding $1,000,000 in cash and Bonus SLOT DOLLARS® over the 20-week regular season and division and conference playoffs along with a $100,000 Big Game Bonus for the championship game. In addition to the in-person promotion, Borgata is upping the ante by launching a second distinct sweepstakes through in which online gaming account holders can enter to win their share of a $200,000 prize pool.


“Borgata has continued to enhance and evolve Boyd Gaming’s Pick The Pros® football challenge since its implementation in 2011,” said Senior Vice President of Operations, Joe Lupo. “After successfully extending the campaign through the playoffs with last year’s $100,000 Big Game Bonus, we are thrilled to unveil a subsequent promotion that speaks to our online gaming community and allows anyone who signs up through our website to participate anywhere in the country.”


A total of $10,000 will be awarded weekly to online participants, with the highest number of correct picks receiving $2,000 Bonus Dollars. An additional 400 participants will randomly win $20 Bonus Dollars each week. Winners must have a verified or account and be physically within New Jersey to redeem their prize.


Borgata will give away a total of $50,000 per week in prizes, including $20,000 in cash to those entrants with the most correct picks, as well as $30,000 in Bonus SLOT DOLLARS® awarded in random drawings to 1,000 winners each week. The final week will see a $100,000 prize structure featuring $40,000 in cash and $60,000 Bonus SLOT DOLLARS® up for grabs.


Beginning Monday, September 7, 2015, and running through Monday, February 8, 2016, participants will have the opportunity to enter their picks via a touchscreen selection at any of the four Pick The Pros® kiosks located at the My Borgata Center and near Gypsy Bar.
