    I guess they did it again - send a streaker to the Olympics <yawn>

    The goofy thing is that they did this in spite of a fine and condemnation that they received for the Summer Olympic streaker interruption.

    From Kahnawake's news section:

    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.

    I guess Golden Palace couldn't care less of what their licensing jurisdiction thinks. Doesn't say much for Golden Palace or the Kahnawake Gaming Commission.

    Call me a cynic, but if I were a competitor of GP and had a massive todger*, wouldn't it be worth tattooing** their name on it and streaking at the olympics just to get them in more trouble***? :D


    * in no way implies that i haven't. Or have. Whichever ;)
    ** henna obviously!

    I did PM Ed and Pat to see if they wanted to take me up on a similar promotional stunt which read "32RED - The Best online Casino bar none, visit us today at You must register/login in order to see the link., you won't be disappointed"

    But they strangely never got back to me... :rolleyes:

    This isn't so much about Golden Palace, who have been beneath contempt for years. This really speaks volumes for Kahnawake: clearly, Golden Palace are well aware that they face no repercussions for this kind of behaviour; if they were to, they would be in serious trouble - Kahnawake has already said they must not do this again!

    What Golden Palace have done here is to rather kindly prove to us that the "Kahnawake Gaming Commission" is no more than another PR whitewash joke, who have no teeth whatsoever and are regarded by contempt as a genuine authority by their biggest seal-holders - because if they were anything else, Golden Palace would treat their "rulings" with respect, and while they might indulge in more baby-buying or whatever other stunts they've done, they most certainly would NEVER sail this close to the wind by sabotaging another olympic games, as this was the exact same incident that incurred the "warning" last time.

    Thanks for at least confirming this for us, Golden Palace.

    They also had some bozo jump up on stage during the closing ceremony.

    Maybe when they meant "never do this again" they meant never to do this again at the 2004 Summer Olympics :rolleyes:

    I find it hard to accept that Kahnawake will issue another slap on the wrist for this. They are trying to tie together with eCogra, so I would hope that a swift investigation will take place, and if found guilty of sanctioning this stunt, Golden Palace would be asked to find an alternative licensing authority.
    I am sure the US Senate have heard of this, and I expect this might influence the debate, and vote, of the next bill attempting to put a stop to online casinos.
    If Kahwanake simply roll over and take this latest insult, there reputation will be seriously harmed, and they will be seen as just another "juristiction of convenience" for the casinos.
    The UK will offer a more robust regulatory framework from 2007, Golden Palace need not apply:D

    You may have big balls slotster, but you probably need to cut the text length down for them to take you seriously ;) Either that or they've seen you naked and realised you aren't exactly Patsy Kensit :D


    Anyway....with all due respect to KGC, ECOGRA etc etc, we shouldn't deflect attention from the fact that GP is a business that has gone out its way to disrupt a sporting event that represents the dreams and years of hard work for lots of people. Its just totally disrespectful IMO.

    Maybe because all it would have read would have been "32pointed"???? :D

    Man, I couldn't resist that one, even this early in the morning for me.

    Geez, what about those of us how already have 32red "tattoes" on our bodies? Can we claim anything? Due to all my losing ways at the end of the '05 campaign, I could only afford to get "32" engraved in my left-ass-cheek. The part reading "red" will have to wait for the time being. :oops:


    Simmo!




    cont...





    About Golden Palace's oh-so-wonderful ways of grabbing our attention, I've been guilty of this myself. I always thought that each time I flip someone the bird, I'm actually giving G.P. the negative advertisement they are desperately in search of. ;)


    Side note: What's up with Golden Palace being able to pull that off at two successive Olympics? It makes the security at those games look shameful. Maybe the Canadian Legislation should pass a law whereby Canadian athletes should be allowed to down to the Quebec: Golden Palace offices, and torch the place to the ground (that is, AFTER the payout ALL of their winners of course).

    It'll be interesting to see what happens at the next Winter Olympics, which will be in Vancouver. That won't go over too well in Canada (my guess).

    You know....I work at the Toronto Wildlife Centre in Downsview Park here in Toronto. Right directly behind our building (they're old army buildings/barracks/refurbished)...is a building with a huge sign on top that says GoldenPalace.com. I'm not sure what's housed in there, but I just may just trot in there tomorrow morning when I go to work, and tell them I want to speak to the dipshit who handles their marketing. :)

    Now the wait to see what Kahnawake will do about this flagrant and as usual tasteless example of Golden Palace guerilla advertising. As a second Olympic offence I would hope that Kahnawake really lower the hammer on these clowns.

    I've already emailed my contacts at KGC giving them a heads up on another GP "slippage". I'll let you know how they respond.

    Hmmm, my guess is that it's probably where they store all of that auction crap they buy. Some of that junk was once worth something, but knowing that it's presently owned by Golden Palace must make the stuff completely worthless. "Sold for $2 MILLION USD, in 5-years will be worth $10,000 on eBay..."

    It must be worth their time in acquisitions to ignore the Kahnawake...

    Personally I don't see how or why you would want to. It's just Mad. Almost as mad as buying a really old GROTTY sandwich!

    :D LOL

    You have to admit though it is one casino that manages to get the most alternative exposure in our industry through these publicity games. Maybe they are taking it a bit too far now!

    (lol) On no my dear, PLEASE go there and do what should have been ages ago ;) . Do your best impersonation of Jack Torrance. As insane as that character was, he was still very much "sane" compared to the wide-range of "things" that Golden Palace had bought-up at those auctions. Kubrick WISHES he were alive to make that final masterpiece... and in-depth look into the horrors of "Golden Palace: The Insanity Commeth".

    I'll take a bet with you here and now that, six months down the line, Golden Palace will still be carrying the Kahnawake stamp. NO WAY will they lose that.
