GoldenPalace's latest purchase

    New York, man :)
    An online casino offered $US65,000 for a metal walking cane that an Indiana woman put up for sale in hopes her son would believe his grandfather's ghost would leave their house with it.
    GoldenPalace.com will add the 'ghost cane' to a collection that already includes a grilled cheese sandwich said to bear the image of the Virgin Mary.
    The Antigua-based casino paid $US28,000 last month for the sandwich, which it bought - like the cane - on eBay.
    The cane - which Mary Anderson auctioned to ease her six-year-old son Collin's fears that his grandfather's ghost was haunting their home - will probably go on tour like the famous sandwich.
    The cane - and the story behind it - attracted 132 bids, dozens of imitators and landed the Andersons on NBC's Today show on Monday.
    'It becomes a pop culture phenomenon,' said Hani Durzy, an eBay spokesman. 'It may be just a few days or whatever but it's all everybody is talking about.'
    San Jose, California-based eBay Inc does not allow sellers to offer intangible items such as spirits or souls where delivery cannot be confirmed. Anderson's auction made it clear that she was selling her late father's metal walking cane as a ploy to ease her son's fears.
    Anderson made one request of the winning bidder: 'I would like to ask you to write a letter after you've received the cane [and the ghost] to my son letting him know that he's there with you and you're getting along great.'

    You know, whatever people say, this casino is at least consistent :D

    They are using the money that they are holding out on you and others to buy the sandwich and the cane.

    ** It's not true, they are holding your money in case they want to buy an old man for the cane and a dinnerset for the sarmy. **

    I like to throw this in every time Golden Palace is brought up even though it has been a year.

    I made a cashout with a very small win from their poker room. They required 2 pieces of ID (they insisted on a credit card or bank statement which I refused since it was Neteller) I had to send 2 utility bills and my drivers license twice, they claimed the first one was illegible even though the second copy was the EXACT same scan and it passed. During the time I waited they emailed me "reverse your cashout bonuses". After 23 days and endless hassle I finally had my win of just over $100.

    As far as I am concerned they lost my business forever as has any room associated with GC/VC and APEX, and anytime the question of their reputation comes up I will always bring this up.
