CHICAGO, IL, FEBRUARY 17, 2005 --, the Internet casino renowned for creative forms of marketing, is the winning bidder for the McDonald's "Lincoln Fry", the commercial prop that the fast food giant put up on Yahoo! Auctions to benefit Ronald McDonald House Charities'.

The prop was created for DDB Chicago's production of McDonald's "Lincoln Fry" television and Internet advertisements. Crafted from polyurethane, the Lincoln Fry stands approximately 4 inches tall and displays a partial bust of President Abraham Lincoln on one end.

The McDonald's ad campaign featuring the Lincoln Fry was viewed by millions of people when it was first aired during the Super Bowl.

"We are flattered that McDonald's recognized the success of our marketing strategy and chose to run a similar campaign. With the sandwich already in our collection, and our corporate philosophy of helping those in need, buying the Lincoln Fry was a given. This is a great day for marketing and a great day for Abe Lincoln." will be sending the $75,100 fry on a country-wide tour along with the Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese Sandwich to allow people to see these items for themselves.
