A clump of Michael Jackson's hair is set to be turned into a roulette ball by an online gambling company.

Onlinegamblingpal.com has purchased the hair – which was collected at New York's Carlyle Hotel, after Jackson stayed there when attending a charity event – for $10,871 (£6,998) at auction and will use it to make a ball for a roulette wheel.

A press release put out by Onlinegamblingpal.com says:

As its proud new owners, we have decided to convert Michael Jackson's hair into a roulette ball – an appropriately unique way to immortalise a small part of a truly peerless entertainer.


It continues: "The ball itself will be made to the highest professional standards, ensuring it will be eligible for use at any licensed casino's roulette table. Indeed, considering Jackson dedicated his life to entertaining millions, the prospect of this very special ball captivating crowds at roulette tables seems like a fitting use for it."

They finish by saying: "We would therefore like to encourage any casino interested in using this unique ball at its tables to contact us. Together, we can ensure Michael Jackson continues to rock and 'roll' forever."
