Top Pick:The Borgata poker room

Cash game players can expect to find games with blinds of $1/$3, $2/$5 and $5/$10 with Texas Hold’em and other poker variants available, including fixed limit hold’em (FLHE), 7 card stud, Omaha hi/lo split, Pot-Limit Omaha (PLO) and mixed games.

Usually 90 poker tables are spread at Borgata, but since the global health pandemic about 2/3rds are currently in service. The max players per table is eight, with face-masks optional.
