A reminder for fans of traditional jai alai

I suspect many love to watch long games, and even more so, partidos, where 80%+ of the games length is basically throw and catch between back courters. Quite consistent with many a match back in their old nations.

Well this is not a critique as all have a right to their pov, but bear in mind, the USA enjoyed the most business success with jai alai, and players mainly left their home nation to enjoy the ride and great US salaries. Not to maintain tradition, as from the start, Spectacular 7 was invented to be a great system for its US purpose-massive betting, but hardly what they played in their home nations. it pleased betters, and betters made US jai alai a booming business success.

Now we have MC whose court provides far faster action than traditional jai alai. I do not care about traditional jai alai 180 mph throws, as even that did not create a sustained, rushed pace the way the MC court does.

Now in an age of instant result gaming at casinos, I would add a faster result game at MC, a shorter program, makes the most business sense. I would imagine MC might get more casino gamblers to stop by than 18 minute games at Dania did, particularly with its frequent lighting issues, low key announcing, etc.

Simply put, always remember Traditional partido style Jai Alai was never the US norm, nor the reason frontons opened in large numbers in the USA. The business of America is always about what drives the business to succeed.
