Re(1): Magic city wps pools

I like your thinking.

I have made a number of posts over the years to the effect that jai-alai management has made a major blunder by allowing those pools to languish in an unplayable state.

My guess is that the total amount of creative energy that has been applied to, "Is there anything we can do to ensure that those pools stay healthy?" would be approximately zero.

Which means that as things stand, any newcomer who would like to get his feet wet with tentative WPS bets is all but guaranteed to have a losing experience. A $5 or $10 ticket in any of WPS pools automatically depresses the price to an underlay level. What an unfortunate introduction to jai-alai.

It's really preposterous that jai-alai desperately needs new fans and yet the obvious WPS entry path for first timers is completely broken.

Right now Magic City has momentum with lots of chat and reaching 100+ viewers at times. It would be very interesting to me to see what would happen with attractive WPS pools.

Another consideration is that sometimes when you don't have a strong opinion on a game, you might pass but make a small WPS wager just to have an interest. Possible yesteryear, but not today. Unless you are ok with constantly losing owing to short payoffs.

As for your suggestion, legality aside, funny thing is that I have often imagined doing that myself for a limited time, just as an experiment. Maybe I will drive over to here to see if my ship has come in.

Seriously, somebody needs to try something to promote WPS betting. When I look at the win pools at PBKC, it is staggering.
