Atlantic City: Borgata opens renovated, multimillion-dollar high-limit slot lounge Miralto

Following the completion of a multimillion-dollar renovation, Miralto, Borgata’s high-limit slot lounge, will reopen Friday, December 23. Adjacent to the hotel lobby, renovations to the 8,300 square-foot lounge will unveil new decor, “embracing the elegance and sophistication synonymous with Borgata.”

Demi Adebowale, the resort’s Director of Slot Operations, said: “We are thrilled to return Miralto back to our customers after this long-awaited renovation. Elevating the level of luxury Borgata offers demonstrates the ongoing commitment we have to remain the market leader.”

In a press release, the new space was described as featuring a “vast gold in-color framework combined with frosted window panes to offer a secluded high-limit slot experience.” The colors of cream, gold and greens surround redesigned cabinetry to encase the collection of more than 100 slot games such as Dragon Cash, Lighting Cash, and the $500-dollar Red, White and Blue WildStar.

Located in the center of the high-limit slot lounge is a collection of custom glass chandeliers. The centerpiece spans 100 inches in diameter and it comprises 3,456 individually cut pieces of glass, requiring each piece to be meticulously installed by hand. 

In addition to the Miralto renovation, the transformation of the complete slot gaming floor is underway. The traditional lengthy rows of slot machines are transitioning into “a dynamic, spacious experience” with the introduction of new game arrangements and comfortable seating. 

The property will also make enhancements for table game enthusiasts with the installation of 92, 55-inch televisions throughout the gaming floor so that there is no need to move to catch a big game.

The renovation comes as Atlantic City’s market keeps rebounding. The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement recently posted its financial results corresponding to November, showing a 4% increase in revenues from in-person gamblers at casinos, compared to 2021.

The revenue for November was $214.5 million, despite the fact that most of the properties continue to trail the levels at which they were performing before the Covid-19 pandemic hit. As for total gaming revenue, including online and sports betting, it amounted to $41 million, a 0.3% increase year-over-year.

The data shows the destination’s nine casinos collectively took in $214.5 million from in-person gamblers – an increase of 3.7% from November 2021. However, only two of them won more money last month from these customers when compared to November 2019, which remains a source of concern for the New Jersey casino industry.
