Re(1): Fronton with the most..

This is a great question. Milford had four levels of betting windows as well as more windows open in the International Room. Bridgeport's levels were bigger, though, and they had three betting levels, plus ticket windows on level 2 next to the front wall.

If you remember back in the old days when Jai-Alai first started in CT and they still had the cardboard tickets, you had to get in different lines for different types of bets. You could bet $2 quinelas at certain windows, had to get in different lines for Tri's and Tri-Boxes and Exactas. There was a $10 window, and there were only a few windows that sold WPS tickets. You also had to get in a separate line for the cashiers to cash winning tickets. There were lines all over the place between every game.

There were also tele-bet ladies walking around for those who wanted to stay in their seats.

At Bridgeport, whenever there was a Tri that paid over $1,000, it could only be cashed at one window. Jeff Brand said it so many times that I still can remember it word for word.

"A reminder that all winning trifecta tickets must be cashed at verification window 101 on the main line. And federal law states that for any winning trifecta ticket over $1,000, the association must deduct 20% for tax purposes."
