Online Casino to pay $5 million for Charging Bull

Casino Fortune bids for Wall Street sculpture

Wednesday 22nd December 2004



An online Casino wants to fork out over $5 million to put its name on a 7,000-pound bronze sculpture near Wall Street.

Casino Fortune wants to buy the Charging Bull, but city officials may not accept the bid to put a gambling company’s logo beneath a statue closely linked with capitalism and the stock market. Famously, the State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer has tried his best to make business hard for the online gambling industry.

The city and artist Arturo Di Modica will have to approve the buyer, who will have to donate the bull and keep it in its current home at Bowling Green.

'There'll come a time when Casino Fortune won't go quietly into the night,' said Kevin Mercuri, a spokesman for the company. 'They'll fight for something they truly want.'

Casino Fortune, which has 2 million American customers, and offers roulette, blackjack, slots, poker and other games, has been rebuffed in other ventures.
