San Jose, Costa Rica, May 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- A diehard Michael Jackson fan and avid slots player won $170,000 dollars and bought a rhinestone glove that once belonged to the late singer Michael Jackson sold at an Australian Michael Jackson memorabilia auction.
After a few spins of the reels, the 47 year old player who works at a local spa company and plays exclusively slot games
was astonished to confirm she had managed to win $170,000 dollars at a new low stakes slot machine at PalaceOfChance.com
The player identified as MbadMuzz, her online casino
nickname, purchased 3 gloves including a right-hand white glove embellished with hundreds of minuscule original Swarovski rhinestones, identical to the custom-made glove Michael Jackson wore during the 1983 Motown25 television special where he first showed the world his famous moonwalk and sealed it as his acclaimed signature dance move.
MbadMuz has now joined the ranks of other Michael Jackson’s memorabilia celebrity collectors like Tracy Morgan, the star of the NBC’s hit show 30Rock, who paid $17,000 for another one of the King of Pop’s famed jeweled gloves, very similar to the one he wore in 'Thriller’. For MbadMuzz the price came much higher as the auctioneer -and self-declared fan of slot machine games - paid a total of over $163,000 after final fees and purchase taxes.
"To me, this is more than pop culture memorabilia: this is history, the items belonged to Michael Jackson and I know I could’ve spent all that money on something else. I could've paid off my mortgage but maybe the gloves will pay for it over time although I doubt I’d sell them," said the lucky MbadMuzz.
Michael Jackson clothes up for auction included an autographed "Beat It" jacket and other assorted accessories like a fedora hat and a pair of the many sunglasses the King of Pop wore during his last world tour. The transaction took place in an auction house in Australia behind closed doors where an unidentified Hong Kong businessman also purchased more Jacko memorabilia for a total of $57,600.
"I’m one of the many people around the world who love Michael Jackson, I feel proud for preserving his legacy. I don’t really collect things because I don’t have the means but it was one of my biggest desires to own Michael’s famous gloves. As soon as I hit that jackpot, I almost fainted but then I knew what I was going to do with the prize money," stated MbadMuzz via telephonePalace of Chance Casino
