Online Casino Goes to Prison.
After several years of outrageous public marketing spectacles online casino GoldenPalace.com has finally gone to jail. The Internet casino recently sponsored the Angola Prison Rodeo, the longest running prison rodeo in the country.
Since 1965, the Angola Prison Rodeo has been a staple of the Louisiana area and one of the most popular rodeo events in America.
GoldenPalace.com added its personal touch to the event by having the animals tattooed with its web address, and a last-man-sitting poker game in the middle of the rodeo ring. Four inmates were seated at a makeshift poker table while a bull was released into the ring. The last poker player to run for his life won $1,000.
Proceeds from the Angola Prison Rodeo cover rodeo expenses and supplement the Louisiana State Penitentiary Inmate Welfare Fund, which provides for inmate educational and recreational supplies.
