PartyPoker and Borgata Launch New Online Gambling Apps in New Jersey

The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa and its online gaming partner bwin.party, owners of PartyPoker, are off to a fast start in the New Jersey online gambling market and they’re not letting any grass grow under their feet.

The two companies announced last week that new apps for both company’s gambling platforms—PartyPoker.com, BorgataPoker.com and BorgataCasino.com—have been developed for iPhones and are available for free.

A gambling app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch supported by iOS 4.3 or later, is now available at PartyPoker.com and is free to download and install. The same apps are available at BorgataPoker.com and Borgatacasino.com.

The tool allows players to engage in poker and casino games while moving from room to room or as they roam around within the Wi-Fi enabled areas of New Jersey, the companies said in separate press releases.

The poker apps include a “Quick Seat” feature that allows players to find a seat when choosing from hundreds of real money Texas Hold ‘em tables accessible at the sites. It also has the “Fast Forward” feature, designed for players who prefer to compete with a pool of players for fast and intense poker action, as opposed to seating in fixed cash games.

The iOS mobile gambling app also has play money poker tables to offer if players want to practice their skills, the companies said.

With BorgataCasino.com, players have access to their favorite slot games and jackpot promotions, including Borgata’s $1 million progressive slots as well as a variety of table games, such as blackjack and roulette all on an easy-to-navigate interface.

The mobile gambling apps also enables users to access the site’s cashier and process transactions using payment methods like Visa, MasterCard, Skrill or direct bank transfers.

PartyPoker’s mobile app comes complete with additional features, including the availability of hand history and setting options for auto-post blinds, four-color decks and for choosing between vibration or sound for event notification alerts.

Players on BorgataPoker.com and BorgataCasino.com qualify for loyalty rewards that can be redeemed at Borgata. iRewards points earned on both sites can be redeemed for cash, bonuses, entertainment, retail shopping, and world-class room accommodations at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, the company said.
