NBC South Florida ran a story on the closing of Dania jai-alai last night. Near the end of the story, Benny Beuno suggested that perhaps Dania could be “rebranded or repackaged” and be profitable. That would be great news if it could be pulled off. Could he be possibly talking about jai-alai sports betting on partidos like Magic City Jai-alai is converting to? Could that area be converted into a sportsbook with live jai-alai and a string of TV’s showing various sporting events where legal sports betting can take place in the state of Florida October 15th? Of course a lot of things have to get approved first with the State of Florida and the Tribe before anything like this could happen. And more importantly, would it be profitable? Stay tuned for more details.
NBC Channel 6 South Florida WTVJ was the first TV station to go live on the air in the state of Florida in 1949. Dania Jai-alai opened their doors just 4 years later.
