*The gambling website OnlineGamblingPal.com recently purchased a lock of the late pop singer Michael Jackson’s hair from an online memorabilia vendor, Gotta Have Rock and Roll, for $10,871.
But here’s the kicker—the website plans to turn Jackson’s hair into a roulette ball!
The hair was reportedly collected at New York’s Carlyle Hotel, where Jackson once stayed while attending a charity event.
“As its proud new owners, we have decided to convert Michael Jackson’s hair into a roulette ball—an appropriately unique way to immortalize a small part of a truly peerless entertainer,” the gambling site announced during their plans for their new acquisition.
The site said the roulette ball will be eligible for use at any licensed casino’s roulette table.
“Indeed, considering Jackson dedicated his life to entertaining millions, the prospect of this very special ball captivating crowds at roulette tables seems like a fitting use for it.
“We would therefore like to encourage any casino interested in using this unique ball at its tables to contact us. Together, we can ensure Michael Jackson continues to rock and ‘Roll’ forever,” stated a spokesperson for OnlineGamblingPal.com.
Geez—anything to make a buck
