Oldest Online Casino Offers to Buy Seat on Shuttle and Award to Tournament Winner; Action will Subsidize Huge NASA Budget Deficit Spending
April 8, 2004; New York, NY - Plans to send one of the first civilians into space were accelerated today when Casino Fortune (www.casinofortune.com) executives learned that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) is unable to account for billions of dollars.
In the effort to support America's return to space and support the embattled agency, Casino Fortune submitted a letter of intent yesterday to NASA Administrator Sean O'Keefe requesting that arrangements be made for a Shuttle seat to be reserved in their name.
Casino Fortune - the oldest casino on the World Wide Web - intends to award the seat to one lucky - and skillful - client following an exhaustive series of online tournaments.
"We originally planned to go to the Russian Space Agency (the Central Research Institute of Machines) for a seat on the International Space Station," said Casino Fortune senior vice president, Dennis Rose. "Our strategy shifted when we read the breaking news about NASA. A majority of our clients are in America and it makes sense to have a connection with America."
Casino Fortune is making arrangements for a Summer tournament that will be open to all American citizens. Winners will be subjected to the rigorous screening process performed by NASA. One lucky person will be awarded a seat on a future mission.
