Though the last farewell has been paid to Michael Jackson, the legendary pop star will live for ever through his music. On August 29 Michael Jackson would have turned 51. Golden Casino is celebrating that birthday by hosting an online slots tournament titled "Remembering The Legend".
Remembering The Legend will be a separate one-off event and not a part of the regular tournament schedule at Golden Casino. It will start on August 21 and end on August 29. A guaranteed prize pool of $15,000 is being offered for the tournament, which will be shared by 200 players. Out of this prize pool the first place winner will get $1,500. Golden Casino is powered by software from Vegas Technology and this special online tournament is being arranged in partnership with them. It will be played on one of their most popular online slot games Real Deal.
Announcing the online slots tournament a statement from Golden Casino read, "Although it may seem unfitting to dedicate a slot tournament to the late and great Michael Jackson, GoldenCasino.com chose to something that it knows how to do best. Online casino players can pay their respects while making a small change for themselves."
Controversy has dogged Michael Jackson all his life and has not left him alone even in his demise and this tournament arranged as a tribute to Jackson is already being mired in controversy. Though Golden Casino has managed to stay clear of negative publicity, its sister site, Golden Palace Casino has controversy for its middle name. Apart from outrageous initial marketing campaigns, Golden Palace Casino boasts of a museum that has in its collection the infamous Virgin Mary grilled cheese sandwich and the Pope Mobile. Now Golden Casino is being accused of exploiting the late Michael Jackson’s name and fame to draw traffic to its online casino. A suggestion has been made at one online portal that if Golden Casino really wants to pay a tribute to Michael Jackson it should donate proceeds of the tournament to some worthy cause supported by the pop star. Whether Golden Casino will do that or not is not known. But it must be said that the controversial Golden Palace Casino has not shied away from charity. A statement on their web site reads, "GoldenPalace.com has also used their items and marketing reach to raise awareness and over $1,000,000 for various charities worldwide."
Hopefully the players at Golden Casino will take the online casino’s intent at face value and will turn up in large numbers to pay their tribute to the King of Pop. Golden Casino is powered by Vegas Technology and licensed by the Curacao Internet Gaming association.
