Borgata Online Casino now offers an exciting new option to give you even more ways to win. It’s the long-awaited but finally up and running online/mobile companion to the Borgata Race & Sports Book at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City–Borgata Sports.
On Wednesday, May 29, I told you all about a special welcome offer that the Borgata affiliated playMGM.com was offering first time sports bettors. However, starting Thursday, May 30, BorgataSports is also making you an offer you can’t refuse.
And best of all, this offer is valid for any registered BorgataCasino.com player making his or her first NBA Finals bet, even if you have already made other sports bets on the site.
Pick your team—Golden State or Toronto
The 2019 NBA playoffs teams that back in April numbered 16 are now down to the final two–the best in the East vs. the best in the West. On Thursday, May 30, starting at 9 p.m., the Golden State Warriors and Toronto Raptors will meet in game 1 of the NBA Finals. This Best of Seven Series will ultimately decide which team will be crowned this year’s NBA champion.
Who will it be? Will it be the highly favored Golden State Warriors, who are seeking a three-peat, or the don’t count them out Toronto Raptors, who have already demonstrated an uncanny way to “claw” their way back into games even when they are behind double digits?
As the showdown unfolds, all across the US, sports fans will be watching and following every step of the action. But for players on NJ gambling websites like BorgataSports, it’s especially exciting because for the first time in history, you can bet on these games legally.
Get More with Every Score!
In addition to betting on which team you think will win the NBA championship, BorgataSports accepts both moneyline and point spread bets, along with specialty bets like parlays, props and in-play bets on individual games and players. This special offer is for your first NBA Finals bet and is limited to moneyline bets only. The bet must be on a single game before the game starts.
Here’s the offer and how to access it:
- Log into your BorgataCasino.com account and go to BorgataSports.
- Place your first NBA Finals bet. This bet must be a moneyline wager of $20 or more on either Golden State or Toronto on an NBA Finals game.
- If your team wins, in addition to the payout you would get ordinarily, BorgataSports will pay you an extra $2 cash for each point that your team wins by!
Additional terms and conditions
If you want to make your qualifying wager on game 1 of the NBA Finals being played Thursday, May 30 you can, as long as you do so before tip-off time. Or, if you prefer, you can wait for a later game in the series.
However, unlike most bonus offers, where it doesn’t matter if your qualifying bet wins or loses or you can only get the bonus if you lose, this one only applies if your qualifying cash bet is a winner. So make your selection carefully.
It doesn’t matter if the team you bet on covers the point spread or not as long as it wins the game outright. If it loses the game outright, you not only lose your moneyline bet, but also forfeit the cash bonus, which could be even bigger than the moneyline bet (especially if it’s a small wager on the favorite).
Every point counts
However, if you pick correctly, on top of whatever your winning bet pays, you can win a lot more. How much more will depend entirely on the margin of victory. Every point your team wins by will put an extra $2 cash in your pocket. So, for example, if your team wins by 25 points, you win an extra $50. The maximum amount of extra cash you can win is $100. However, the team you bet on would have to win by 50 points, which is extremely unlikely.
If you’re eligible for the bonus payout, the money will be credited to your BorgataCasino.com account within 72 hours after the final score is official. No additional wagering is required. So the money is available to withdraw immediately. Or if you prefer, you can either wager it in on casino games or transfer it back into BorgataSports.
The bottom line: Is the BorgataSports NBA Finals Bonus Cash offer a good one?
This offer couldn’t come at a better time. How could you not want to have a bet riding on the NBA Finals, and this offer gives you an extra way to win. It’s also a great offer because you can make your qualifying moneyline bet any size you want from $20 on up. The amount of your wager has no bearing on the size of your bonus, which will depend solely on how many points your team wins by.
Another great feature is that BorgataSports will pay off not only the sports bet itself but also the bonus payout in the form of an immediately withdrawable cash credit to your account. Most bonuses that you receive on NJ gambling websites come with additional–frequently hefty–wagering requirements you have to meet before you can access either the bonus itself or any additional related winnings. This one doesn’t require any additional wagering at all!
One not so great feature of this offer is that if it’s a very tight game that goes down to the wire, the bonus payout will be tiny. Many games are decided by only one basket, and at this stage of the competition, such a result is very conceivable. In other words, you could wind up with only a $2 or $4 bonus! Moreover, if your team loses, besides losing your moneyline wager, your bonus is zilch.
On the other hand, a little advance handicapping could pay off in a big way. Try to pinpoint a game where logic tells you that one team will beat the other by a sizable margin. Then go ahead and make your bet with confidence that you will indeed get more with every score.
