Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa has re-opened its completely refurbished high-limit slot lounge adjacent to the hotel lobby. The 8,300 sq ft Miralto opened on December 23 after an extensive two-month, multi-million dollar renovation.
The high-limit lounge hosts 100 slot machines including the property’s exclusive $500 Red White, and Blue Wild Star as well as titles such as Dragon Cash and Lighting Cash.
The lounge opening came just one day after Borgata’s reopening of the legendary Old Homestead Steak House, which has been part of Borgata since the property opened in 2003. However, as a brand and experience, the premiere eatery was open in New York City for well over a hundred years before that. The original venue opened in 1868 in Manhattan. For two decades the experience has been available to denizens on both sides of the river.
Vice President of Hospitality, Anthony Caratozzolo said of the steak house: “This beautiful redesign brings a new vibe and energy to the guest experience from the moment of arrival to the conclusion of the meal. I think the restaurant team is as excited to welcome our guests back as they are to return.”
Complete Refurb of 160,000 sq ft Gaming Area in Progress
The new developments are also part of a complete revamp of Borgata slot gambling areas with a remake of the 160,000 sq ft mass gaming floor already under renovation.
“We are thrilled to return Miralto back to our customers after this long-awaited renovation,” said the resort’s Director of Slot Operations, Demi Adebowale. “Elevating the level of luxury Borgata offers demonstrates the ongoing commitment we have to remain the market leader.”
While located adjacent to the main lobby for the convenience of players, Miralto offers a secluded gambling experience in an atmosphere of opulence and elegance. The slot machines are encased in redesigned cabinetry set against colors of cream, gold, and green behind frosted window panes.
Adding to the atmosphere are multiple chandeliers made of hand-blown glass with a centerpiece electrolier of more than 8 feet in diameter at 100 inches. The chandelier comprises over 3,000 pieces of individually cut glass, each installed in the array by the hands of craftsmen.
The main slot floor is being transformed from its current layout of long rows crowded with machines to new game arrangements offering more space, dynamic flow, and comfortable seating.
Also coming to the gaming floor will be nearly a hundred 55-inch television screens.
After 19 1/2 Years, Borgata Leads Atlantic City Revenues
Borgata marks its 20th anniversary on July 2, 2023. The property has risen to the forefront of gambling in Atlantic City beginning with the Supreme Court throwing out a ban on sports betting, with casino revenue gains playing leapfrog with sports betting since then.
September gaming revenue across the city was $251.7m with Borgata accounting for the plurality of that number claiming $62.3m of the total.
Overall, revenues for the month year-over-year showed only a 1% increase across the city. Borgata’s numbers show another surge in online gaming which includes online sports numbers with $41.1m of its $62.3m revenue logging in an 8% monthly y-o-y increase for iGaming for September.
