The Michael Jackson Hair Roulette Ball Acquaints the King of Pop to Lady Luck

— December 18, 2011 — Unique
The Michael Jackson hair roulette ball may soon be coming to a casino near you. Gambling website Onlinegamblingpal.com purchased a lock of the King of Pop's hair for $10,871 and plans to turn it into a roulette ball.

The site isn't planning to make a novelty roulette ball with the hair. They intend to make it professional grade so that it can actually be used in casinos. Purchasing a lock of celebrity hair is nothing new, but this may very well be the first instance that hair was ever turned into a roulette ball. Online Gambling Pal has not revealed which casinos will be renting the Michael Jackson hair roulette ball, but I'm sure it will make big news wherever it lands.
