Do you love seeing the slots spin and awaiting whether or not you've hit the jackpot? But the moment is ruined by the loud couple down the aisle or the smoke filling the air.

Do not despair! At Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, guests now have the ability to gamble right in their room, letting them pass on the hassle of the casino floor.

The new amenity is Borgata's first step in mobile gambling, with 46-inch LED televisions in its 2,000 hotel rooms.

With video slots and poker, checked-in guests with a player's card can access the in-room convenience.

Eventually, Borgata will have gambling available on your smartphone when sitting by the pool or in a restaurant at the resort.

The in-room gambling will go through a 90-day trial period of its mobile wagering software.

The upgraded software is part of a $6 million investment in in-room technology at the hotel as part of its $50 million hotel renovation.

"The incremental investment in in-room gaming was small," Borgata's president and chief operating officer Tom Ballance says in an interview with The Press of Atlantic City.

According to The Press, "Patrons must first check in to a Borgata hotel room, where - as long as they are not underage, not on a self-excluded gambling list and participate in Borgata's players program - they will be given a password for the television gambling software."

That password will last for the duration of the guest's stay and will be used with the PIN attached to the guest's player's card.

To gamble in your room, you have to pay a visit to the cashier's cage on the casino floor and deposit the amount of money you plan on gambling, with a $2,500-a-day limit.
