Sunday’s last game at Magic City had a Trifecta pool of $2,687. That may not seem like a large number, however, it was the largest Trifecta pool for Magic City Fronton since 8/14/2022. The Average Trifecta pool for the 8-games at Sunday’s matches was $2,052.
Not only are the Trifecta pools showing promise, but the Average $1.00 Trifecta payoff for the first 6-performances, 48-games, at the Magic City Fronton is a whopping $272. Now the casual observer might say “so what” but let’s put these figures into modern day “Jai-Alai perspective.” Let’s compare the first 48-games (6-performances) of the Magic City Fronton, now in their 6th year of pari-mutuel Jai-Alai wagering games, with the long-standing Dania Jai-Alai which opened 70-years ago. Dania Jai-Alai recently operated a short meet from December 2022 through January 2023.
First 48-games Average Trifecta Handle:
- Dania Average Trifecta Handle = $2,708 per game
- Magic City Average Trifecta Handle = $1,831 per game
Dania Average Trifecta Handle (full meet Dec-Jan) = $3,405 per game
Magic City’s Sunday Trifecta handle of $2,687 in game 8 is less than a cheap steak dinner away from Dania’s Average Trifecta handle of $2,708 for their first 48-games. Now I find that impressive!
First 48-games Average $1.00 Trifecta Payoffs:
- Dania Average = $221 per game
- Magic City Average = $272 per game
Magic City payoffs are trending 23% higher than Dania payoffs for the start of the meets.
Most Recent Full Meet Comparison on $1.00 Trifecta Payoffs:
