Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Hair Will Be A Roulette Ball

Strands of Michael Jackson's hair are set to be turned into a roulette ball.

OnlineGamblingPal.com bought the locks of the late singer's hair - which were retrieved when he stayed at the Carlyle Hotel in New York before his 2009 death from a Propofol overdose - for $10,871 and plan to use them to create the unusual tribute to Michael.

The company said in a statement on their website: "OnlineGamblingPal.com is delighted to announce that is has acquired some of pop legend Michael Jackson's hair for $10,871, which will now be transformed into a one-off roulette ball.

"As big Michael Jackson fans, we were left deeply saddened when he passed away in 2009. And to thank him for the years of entertainment he gave us, we wanted to create a unique tribute to the undisputed King of Pop. 

"So when we found out that a sample of his hair was to be auctioned off, we seized this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do just that."

The company added it is fitting that the roulette ball will be used to entertain people as the 'Thriller' hitmaker did throughout his life.

They said: "As its proud new owners, we have decided to convert Michael Jackson's hair into a roulette ball - an appropriately unique way to immortalise a small part of a truly peerless entertainer.

"The ball itself will be made to the highest professional standards, ensuring it 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."

Onlinegamblingpal, your company is one sick puppy. As a huge "fan" of Michael's, your company should have greater RESPECT for him than rolling a part of him around on a roulette table. Again, it's all about someone making money off of Michael, your company spent $10,871.00 for a lock of Michael's hair only to turn it in to a roulette ball and eventually make a profit by selling it at auction, hoping to at least double or tripple your "investment". The thought of a part of Michael rolling around on a roulette table is stomache churning, even if it is only his hair. I have this sickening vision of what the roulette ball is going to look like(with Michael's face on it) and I hope I am wrong as that would be truly sickening but again, it's all about the money right Onlinegamblingpal?

Tribute my a$$. This is a disgrace and disrespect for MJ's family and fans. Making a roulette ball from his hair is a very odd and sick thing to do. Bottom line, it's a publicity stunt for the money......call it what it is gamblingpal!
