We had two ace pools that were getting close to $300 each and they both got hit within the span of four days. One was the Sunday league and it had been building since October. The other was our Spring/Summer league which happens on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday with a combined Ace Pool. The first one that was hit was the Spring/Summer league. Four days later the Sunday league was hit. Predictably we have had a much smaller turnout this week.
Maybe I will get an ace tonight. Last year we had a large pool hit and then the very next week I got an ace (on the same day my car got plowed into). The guy earned over $500 the previous week and I walked with just over $20 but hey an ace is an ace. And I just bought beer for my friends anyway. Funny how nobody will get an ace for a long time and then all of a sudden they will come in batches.
After our monthly ace pool reaches $100 we begin keeping half the amount each month to make a little and keep it from growing too fast.
Some of our areas ace pools last summer grew to be in the $1,500 range. Folks came from all around to get their chance to grab it. I was hit by 2 people (if I remember correctly) that particular league pays out %50, it took them a month or so of people hitting aces for it to drop back down and much fun was had by all.
IMO ace pools are paid out on par with what the leagues in the area pay.. I.E. the standard in our area is %50-%60. if you area is %100 then so be it.. opions are what they are.
