“I was playing the nickel slots so I never would have imagined that I’d win
the PowerPrize Jackpot,” said My Borgata customer, Judi DeSilva of
Springfield, PA. “It was so exciting when the jackpot hit! Borgata
associates rushed to my side, brought me champagne, and arranged for me to
stay in a suite with the most magnificent views.”

As the inaugural PowerPrize Jackpot winner, Mrs. DeSilva received her
jackpot win of $129,799 cash and 691 My Borgata cardholders won $31,375 in
slot dollars.

The PowerPrize Jackpot starts at $100,000 and must pay-out before the
jackpot reaches $150,000. Every time the jackpot hits, one lucky customer
playing slots with their My Borgata card will be randomly selected to win
the PowerPrize Jackpot. Everyone playing slots with their My Borgata card
when the PowerPrize Jackpot hits wins the Players Card Bonus — $25 or $50
in Bonus Slot Dollars.

Borgata associates are included in the excitement as well. Every time the
PowerPrize Jackpot hits, one Borgata associate will be randomly selected to
win an extra one percent of the total PowerPrize Jackpot amount, courtesy
of Borgata. The most recent winner, a housekeeping shift manager and
day-one Borgata associate, received $1,297 in cash.

“For over one million customers, Borgata has become their place to stay,
play, and win,” said Larry Mullin, Chief Operating Officer for Borgata.
“With the addition of The PowerPrize Jackpot and Players Card Bonus, all
customers with a My Borgata card are guaranteed winners. On behalf of

to provide our customers the best rewards.”
