Is there a limit to what you can and cannot bet on? If you are playing no limits poker at an online casino then there may not be, but betting on the future of someone's life may be going beyond the limits of good taste. Recently some sites have been cashing in on the notoriety that seems to follow Michael Jackson like a bad omen. Personally I think an online casino should be used for betting on sports events or for playing your favorite games.

The fact that Michael Jackson's life is already a like a bad scene from a tragic accident at a circus doesn't seem to deter some of the online casinos from posting odds and taking bets on where he will end up in a few years. It doesn't take a fortune teller to know that his future looks fairly bleak and that he is already well on the road to financial ruin. As the frenzy of gambling at the online casinos was starting to wind down after his recent acquittal, they seem to have started up again based on the outcome of his future.

It may just be my opinion but aren't there enough events going on in the world of sports and entertainment to be able to find something more interesting to bet on other than the certain doom of a celebrity turned circus freak? Can't the man be left in peace? Personally I'd rather play a game of blackjack at my favorite gambling site rather than bet on someone's chances of bankruptcy.
