Talking about games that could attract people who bet on sports, he said he could “create 10 games in 15 minutes.” He want on to describe his concept in detail, in which you could pick five Major League Baseball players for tonight’s games, and if they outscore everyone else who plays, you could win life-changing amount of money.
