GoldenPalace.com is an online casino, hosted by the Kahnawake Mohawk First Nation near Montreal. It is well-known for its publicity stunts.
The casino has paid many boxers to wear temporary tattoos on their backs promoting the site. GoldenPalace.com has been accused of far more disruptive stunts. The casino is widely believed to have sponsored serial streaker Mark Roberts in several of his escapades, including his "performances" at the 2003 UEFA Cup final and Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004; at both events, he wore a temporary GoldenPalace.com tattoo. Individuals have also disrupted other sporting events, including the 2004 Summer Olympics and the 2006 Winter Olympics. Famed free climber Alain Robert also wore such a tattoo when he climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 2003.
