Betting on Lightning-Fast Jai Alai Players in Dania Beach, Florida
Florida is the only state in the U.S. where Jai-Alai is played live; to catch the fastest game on earth, head to the Jai-Alai Palace in Dania Beach after a day of sunbathing and antiquing. Originating in the Basque region of Spain, this sport is a combination of handball, racquetball and horse racing. Try to follow the balls (pelotas) blasted from hand-baskets (cestas) to reach speeds of 170 mph. There are a variety of legal wagers accepted, and the frenzied crowd at the fronton (arena) adds to the thrills.
