Re(1): Where are the crowds?

Magic City has done many things outside the box and I applaud them for that. Magic City understands that the old jai alai business model is tired and doesn't work. $.10 superfectas wont attract new fans, just appease old ones. I don't think its legally approved, however, in order for jai alai to make a resurgence in my opinion you have to switch to fixed odds betting. First, it would have to be legal. Then you would have to have someone qualified to create the odds and a system to take the wagers. Finally, you would have to have someone with deep pockets to back the wagers. At least until you created enough interest to have a large enough fan base to create action on all sides of the betting pool. Drop the win place show bets and make it more like professional sports betting with win odds and parlays. I think parlay cards are where the money is at. The more teams you pick the more risk you take the higher the payouts. It would allow for the money being wagered on jai alai to grow exponentially by bringing in a totally different type of gambler.
