One of the pure enjoyments of betting on jai alai is that moment
where you just won a trifecta and are sitting there for 30 seconds
awaiting to see what you won. Then every so often you get a nice
surprise, and a payout about double or triple of that you had
expected to get. I would actually hate to lose that moment..
.. also what would you do if you get some drunk placing a $100 bet on 7-6-5 tri and it comes out and the house must pay off whatever enormous fixed payout that was predetermined? Then this happens a couple more times where as Joe V states, where points are lost suspiciously so certain combos are just missed. Outcries of fixed would be shouted and talk of scandals and such would doom jai alai for sure. Shut the lights, the party is over for sure. The talk of fixed games would drive away more people then fixed odds could ever bring in.
