I thought it may be just a joke after the toasted sandwich incident.

No it isn't. WTF? Sorry GP. Crossed my line big time! Streakers or sandwiches may be funny but children into the equation? What idiots run your promotions?

Never mind. I will not promote you any longer.

Children are precious.

Who needs affiliates when you have babies? They are much cuter :D

Guess I need to update the "Stupid Casino Tricks" section...

WTG, Deaning. Good for you.

Part of the fallout from Golden Palace's sabotage of the 2004 Athens Olympics was the following directive from the Kahnawake Gaming Commission:

Golden Palace will not use, promote, encourage or fund this type of marketing ever again

Presumably what amounts to a form of child abuse is as serious, if not more so, than sabotage of a sporting event.

Since Golden Palace have disregarded the above directive from the KGC, what censorship will the KGC be considering?

Anyone with an opinion on the subject would do worse than to drop them a line and sound them out.

They can have the next few thousands of visitors.

Golden Palace has been widely promoted by ourselves and we had been earning good money on the poker alone.

You cannot put a price on a kids head. GP have and wrong does not do justice to the utter thoughtlessness of the act.

If you want to play there then I hope your conscience at least gives you a good kick in the arse by sparing a thought for a kid having to face what is a tough enough battle already.

When and where did this appear? I'd like to check out this statement.

And Doctor Carlos, this has everything to do with online casinos (the title of this topic section). The way a casino chooses to market themselves has a direct correlation on how it conducts all forms of its business - to include player fairness and treatment. The eBay funny ha ha's are just about it - stupid funny, and it gets them exposure. But when it comes down to serious business, they lack credibility IMO. For instance, take a look at the auction that Casinomeister and Got2bet conducted last January for Tsunami relief. We raised $111,000 dollars with an auction that lasted 10 days - Golden Palace never made a bid, and believe me they new about it. The problem was that it wasn't something that was a funny ha ha.

Sure, some of the money that they pay for stupid things at eBay is supposedly going to charity - but there are other ways to do this without waving your arms screaming for attention.

Exactly. However I would also like to add that stunts like this one that Golden Palace has pulled off, does not put the industry in a good light, if anything it tarnishes the industry.

As casino portal webmasters, it is imperative that we ensure our visitors are informed of some of the more dubious activities carried out by casinos that in all intents and purposes can bring the industry under an unwanted spotlight.

Also I am a great believer in responsible gaming as should all online casinos be.

By buying the right to name a baby after an online casino in my view shows the disdain Golden Palace hold for responsible gaming. The message I am reading into this sick marketing ploy by GP is that the bottom line is the increasing of their profit margin and at any cost.

GoldenPalace just offered the opportunity to call a baby with their name, it was a decision of the parents to accept this!
They've been paid to do this, and maybe they needed that money!
I'm not saying such an advertising strategy is not sick, but actually anyone get its goal: GP made people talking of em, and the parents got the money...it's a winning strategy, this means that the whole advertising market is sick!
GP know that many gamblers do not approve such a decision, but they are trying to catch the attention of new clients, and they did (many newspapers reported the fact)!
BTW I've heard even worse name given to chidren for free!!! :eek:

While one should undoubtedly question GP's ethics in this case, thats where the ultimate responisibility lies IMHO too. :thumbsup:

Clearly the parents are responsible and are a party to it. You can say this about any of the stunts that involved other people: our friend who sabotaged the Olymics, he's an individual with his own mind, right? Noone forced him, right? So it's his fault, right? So Golden palace aren't responsible, right?

Bullshit. Golden Palace are the moving force behind all this sabotage / stupidity. But hey, let's blame everyone else, why don't we?

LMAO.

No idea when - I only stumbled across it two days ago myself. It's in the "news" section, in case you missed it:

News

KGC Investigates Golden Palace

In the past two weeks, the Kahnawake Gaming Commission (KGC) has received numerous complaints concerning an incident at the Olympic Games in Athens involving a person who streaked an event displaying the name of one of the KGCs permit holders: Golden Palace.

The KGC did not approve or condone the incident in question and does not approve or condone this type of marketing by its permit holders.

After investigating the Athens incident and meeting with representatives of Golden Palace, the KGC has directed that:

1. Golden Palace will not use, promote, encourage or fund this type of marketing ever again, and

2. Given the seriousness of the incident and the negative effect it has had on the communitys reputation, Golden Palace will make a substantial donation to Kahnawake organizations to be identified by the Mohawk Council of Kahnawake.

The KGC is satisfied with Golden Palaces cooperation throughout and considers the matter closed.

For further information, contact the Kahnawake Gaming Commission at 450-635-1076.

Publicity works both ways. I will be in Vegas in September at the aff conference. I may dress as a baby, diaper, bib and dummy with "Golden Palace F**KED UP MY LIFE" on my back.

I am not a happy chappy.

** Well-well well!! I thought that putting the image of Lara Croft on a 'diet' was harsh, but this!! I think, that in this case, there are two parties to blame to this. The parents AND the casino. Yet, as much as it is a 'moral' issue, they have not done anything against the law (as far as I can figure). As a parent myself, I believe that it is the PARENT's responsibility to protect their child against harm to the best of their ability! In this case, the casino exploited this child, and the parents did not protect it at all. Although no physical harm has come to the child like (say) in a porno industry, the phsycological damages could be seen as child-abuse too. The parent's actions will leave this child scarred for life - even when it is old enough to change the name .... on the other hand... the kid might actually grow up as a strong individual, riding this name for his own financial gain as it gets older!
Either way. I truly believe they were both at fault here, in a way that society predict moral standards. At least my own. In the end, who is to make this call? Not everyone subscribes to the same moral values as set by 'society'. This is a hard one, and I find myself torn on this issue... As a parent, I say "Crusify them, Group AND Parents" as a business person i say "Well, it is a clever idea, is it against the law?" Very hard indeed. **

This is going to be a great promotional piece for Senator Kyle's latest bill.

Golden Palace probably doesn't want online gaming to be legalized and regulated in the US, it would just add competition to their landscape, but if Kyle's latest goes through than GP is going to see a significant hit as American banks block all online gambling related transactions.

One of the big criticisms of online casinos is that they don't block access by minors.

Golden Palace do not give a damn about the industry, this latest sick stunt proves that. God knows how they treat their players.

To even come close to defending GP at all is well.....nevermind.

Sure the parents probably needed the money, but I can guarantee you that the $15,000 MIGHT make a dent in this child's therapy bills over their lifetime....really doubt it though.
