The unusual eBay listing of actor William Shatner (best-known for his portrayal as Captain James T. Kirk, on TV’s Star Trek) saw the kidney stone he lost in August 2005 sold to Golden Palace Casino Online Casino. Golden Palace Casino paid $25,000 in order to acquire the organ from the Starship Enterprise’s Captain. The funds were quickly redirected towards the charity Habitat FOR Humanity that helps low-income families build homes.
Golden Palace Casino is synonymous with this publicity stunt in the world of internet gambling. This online casino also paid $1775 for a pierogi, a Polish dumpling, bearing the image Jesus Christ. The couple proudly added the item to their growing collection of modern oddities, which is becoming more notorious after they had won.
Some other treasured artifacts are:
Grilled Cheese Sandwich featuring the image of Virgin Mary ($28,000).
— 1999 Volkswagen Golf that belonged to Pope Benedict XVI
Britney Spears’ pregnancy testing (yes, it was used — yuck!)
A walking cane made of metal that an elderly woman sold to convince her young grandson his grandfather’s ghost would leave their house once and for all ($65,000).
In December 2005, an online casino purchased Babe Ruth’s allegedly damaged baseball bat from Lelands.com. The purchase cost $103,631. Richard Rowe of Golden Palace Casino says they now plan to cut the bat in half and end the long-running batted-around controversy vworld login.
Golden Palace Casino is the proud owner the White House property deed. This is the actual home of President Barack Obama. The Quitclaim deed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., which was purchased in an auction on eBid.tv, was only $43.45.
Golden Palace Casino even paid $2250 for its name to appear in the upcoming books of famous novelists, such as Hugo award-winning science fiction writer David Brin ( The Postman, River of Time Anthology), and David Eggers. Dave Eggers (bestselling author of a Heartbreaking Work of Staggering genius) received $5,471.78 for a guest appearance in his novel The Journey of the Fishes Overland. Like most of Golden Palace Casino Online Casino’s unique advertising spends, all proceeds will be donated. In these two cases, it is the First Amendment Project. This charity is free speech.
Online casinos are not content with just displaying an increasing number of bizarre modern oddities. Golden Palace Casino:
— Continues to pay thousands of dollars to individuals for tattooing the Golden Palace Casino Logo on different parts of their bodies.
It employs a growing group of shameless and brave souls to disrupt public sporting events by running naked along the arena with the URL and logo of an online casino on their flesh. Mark Roberts’ rear end is now more popular than his face. He has sprinted across the French and British Opens, the UEFA Cup finals. Ladies’ Day At the Royal Ascot. The World Figure Skating Championship. Super Bowl XXXVIII. And he has run with the Bulls in Spain. All in the name good, wholesome online casino gambling.
— Sponsored Dennis Rodman’s car at the Bullrun USA 2005 race, which matches the exact route taken by the Cannonball Run in Burt Reynolds’ 1981 film of the same name.
Sponsored rowboat teams that attempted to cross the Atlantic at 3,000 miles.
The team at Golden Palace Casino knows how to draw attention. It’s clear that they are able to raise money for charity.
