Operator does not appear to have the approval of pop singer's estate
The owners of Betsoft-powered Michael Jackson Casino.com face legal action from the famous and recently departed pop singer's estate, reports the entertainment publication TMZ.
The online gambling website uses the pop icon's image and name extensively - apparently without the knowledge or approval of the estate's lawyers, who have intimated that they will be taking legal action.
Howard Weitzman, lead attorney for Jackson's estate, is adamant the website has not been given official approval to use Jackson's image, and told TMZ.com that he will "take whatever legal actions are necessary to shut this operation down."
The online casino features an image of Michael Jackson and allows customers to play both casino games and bet on sports. A message on the site reads: "The King of Pop is proud to bring you the most exciting Vegas style online casino betting experience on the Net!"
