Articles On Casinos Must Contain Phrase "Rolling The Dice"

The list of potential investors on this "gamble," reads like a comic book super hero round-up gone wrong. We've got a radio host, a Four Tops Singer and a boxing promoter tied up in this venture, along with someone whose nickname we are hoping quickly becomes "The Undertaker." That's right, Detroit Funeral Home leader O'Neil Swanson wants in on this too. We can't wait to see him in the ring with the fifth investor: "Detroit Radio Personality and one-time Cablevision partner Wade (Butterball) Briggs."
