Re(12): What makes Magic City so Appealing..Answer is easy....

I completely agree and I have heard of some current legal efforts to expand OTB opportunities into States whose pari-mutuel laws do not specifically strike "Jai-Alai" as an option for OTB / ISW wagering. These efforts are thankfully above my pay grade and I do not have any other specifics. I remember that years ago when we explored this at Florida Gaming a huge barrier was thoroughbred favoring legislation across the country. Separately I do know that industry lobbyists are working on the bigger sports-wagering issue and I believe some specific effort is being made by Casino Miami in this regard (but that is a one-source rumor at this point - very much something I overheard). As for days and times there has been some talk among Jai-Alai operators about staggering days & times so that we don't compete with each other for the same OTW / ISW dollar. With respect to Sundays we have no plans to bring back the Sunday evening performance - it was by far our worst in terms of income and attendance and 9 performances is about as hard as we can push the players for now. But your assessment is spot-on.
