    Is the Borgatta black card worth getting, me and the wife are entitled to these due to the CET tier matching, I was just wondering if it's actually worth bothering with as I don't expect to give them much business, unless of course through your experience you think I should give them some business, I always stay at Caesars for the week in AC fully comped and they give us both some decent free play, so I don't really want to lose that by giving the Borgatta business that could affect my Caesars comps.

    Borgata is easily the nicest property in AC.

    Black Card gives a separate check in and free parking.
    The best benefit is access to the Black Card lounge for food and drinks.There is a nice bar and it is spacious inside.
    I've had lunch there and Sunday breakfast the food is decent.IMO it is better than any DL Caesars has.

    You do need to "pay" $10 comp dollars per person to access the amphora lounge, so you would have to give them some play to use that benefit.

    New members get $100 bonus slot dollars or match play.

    I haven't played tons there, but just upgrading to black label has increased my invitations to slot tournaments and such, as well as free comedy club tickets and other tickets (few days before when seats still open)

    I think it is worth it. It is a twofer, show your Diamond card and get the Black card with premium lines, free valet, 10 comp dollar buffet, pretty decent offers for no extra effort. Plus the rooms at Borgata are better than many of the CET rooms.

    Interesting, thank you, I think it would make sense to pick up our cards on the first day and make use of the lounge after some play, thanks for the feedback.

    For what it's worth,a lot of the people who live in our complex that are"people of means" prefer Borgata. We're not crazy about some of these people so we're glad they go there instead of our favorite hotels.
    I cant knock it, it's a nice place and the only race book in AC.

    You can also get buffet passes for only $10 comp dollars when you have the black card, which is really nice since the Borgata buffet is fantastic. I love their breakfast buffet.

    I've only used the card for the buffet $10comp once ( buffet was ok ) but skipping the regular check in line was AWESOME. (Saves me 30mins every time)

    Best feature is going to head of the line at Noodles of the World, which is the best asian noodle place in AC in my opinion.

    And this. The regular check-in line can take an hour on a busy weekend.
