Borgata has been tier matching for years now. Someone correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think they ever stopped. Before they went MLIFE, I always just went with my TR 7* and got the Borgata Black card. I went with several friends since they went MLIFE and they were able to get upgraded to MLIFE Plat/Gold from TR Diamond/Plat even if they were a member already. With the current competition and fight for players, I don't see them stopping the tier matches any time soon.
