Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is now part of the same MGM “family” of resorts as the Bellagio, Aria, Mirage and others in Las Vegas, the Beau Rivage in Biloxi, Miss., and, later this year, MGM National Harbor, across the river from Washington, D.C., in Oxon Hill, Md. MGM also has resorts in…

June is LGBT Pride month. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is recognizing the occasion with a special room package and an entertainment line-up to appeal to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

One of the questions I’m most frequently asked is, “What do you play?” When I reply, “Mostly lower-denomination slot machines, but frequently at max bet,” I generally get a surprised look, especially from video poker players.

You’ve probably seen them scurrying through the casinos mid-morning, looking sharp in their black tuxedos and bowties. No, they’re not maître ’ds arriving early for their dinner shift, they’re butlers — a benefit reserved exclusively for the highest end players in Atlantic City casinos.
