All participants will be registered on a first-come, first-served basis, with no additional seating options available.
Adding to the excitement, Borgata NJ offers a $5,000 Mystery Easter Egg Hunt for cash poker players. Scheduled for April 14th and 15th, the event will feature a staggering $60,000 prize pool.

Moreover, the additional daily prizes are set between $3,000 and $250.
In case of a tie, where multiple players hold the same qualifying high hand within the same interval, the first player dealt the qualifying high hand will choose the Mystery Easter Egg. The prize will then be equally split among eligible players.
Among other Borgata poker events you can’t miss this spring is the Bad Beat Jackpot. To qualify for a bad beat, you must hold a four-of-a-kind tens or better, using two cards from your hand. The losing hand receives 40% of the casino jackpot, while the winning hand secures 20%. The remaining 40% is distributed among other players dealt into the hand.
