1. Set your play budget

Savvy sports bettors know there’s no way to guarantee a win. That’s why they set aside a play budget and only use money they can afford to lose. To do this, set aside a separate play budget and think of it as money you would spend on entertainment. Like tickets to a game.

2. Choose a sport

PROPS lets you bet on American and Canadian Football, Professional Baseball, Professional Hockey, and Professional Basketball. PROPS allows you to bet on outcomes for teams, individual players, overall games, both team total points, and more.

You can view the sports list at PRO•LINE.ca, on the PRO•LINE App or at any OLG retailer. Once you’ve chosen your Card, you can select the number of events you want to wager on. Each Card features up to 16 events on which you can wager.

TIP

For PROPS, you must wager on a minimum of 3 events and a maximum of 6 events for your ticket to be valid. The more events you wager on, the higher your cost of play.

  • The game on which the event(s) are based
  • The game date and time
  • The team(s) and/or participant(s)
  • The event(s)
  • The Over/Under number for each event
  • The odds for each event

3. Choose your wager

Once you’ve made your predictions, you can choose to wager as little as $2 or as much as $100 per ticket per day.

TIP

Remember, the more you wager, the more you stand to win – or lose. Be sure to stick to your play budget and only bet money you can afford to lose.

4. Choose your outcomes

Refer to the number below the “#” on the sports list. Then, choose one of the two outcomes:

  • OVER (OV): the total result will be higher than this number
  • UNDER (UN): the total result will be lower than this number

Mark your chosen outcomes on the selection slip available at your OLG retailer or use the PRO•LINE App.

5. Buy your ticket

Take your completed selection slip or your PRO•LINE App picks to your OLG retailer to pay for your picks and get your ticket.

How much can I win?

Your potential payout is calculated by multiplying all event odds together and then multiplying that total against your wager. It looks like this:

(EVENT 1 ODDS X EVENT 2 ODDS X EVENT 3 ODDS X EVENT 4 ODDS) X WAGER = PAYOUT

Tip

While it’s fun to imagine how much you can win ahead of the actual outcome, upsets are common in sports and there’s no way to know for sure how a game will play out.

How do I know if I’ve won?

To find out if you’re a winner, check your ticket in one of the following four ways:

1. Scan your ticket barcode using the ticket checker at a participating OLG retailer
2. Ask a participating retailer to scan the ticket barcode using the lottery terminal
3. View winning results by event at PRO•LINE.ca
4. Scan your ticket barcode using the OLG Lottery App

Check event results at PRO•LINE.ca

How to claim your prize

A dollar bill is exchanged between two sets of hands.

You can claim your prize, up to a certain amount of money, at your local OLG retailer. Prizes over the amounts redeemable at individual retailers must be collected at the OLG Prize Centre.

What is a PUSH?

What if an event is incomplete?

What is a PUSH?

A “PUSH” occurs when the combined total points in a completed event matches the Over/Under number exactly. The event is considered a “PUSH” and the odds for that event for the Over and Under wager will be assigned an odds value of 1.00. For example, if you bet $2 on either the Over or the Under option and the result is a PUSH, you win $2.

What if an event is incomplete?

When an event selected by a player is deemed incomplete, both Over and Under shall be deemed correct outcomes and the Odds for that event changed to 1.00. Like in a “PUSH” outcome, if you bet $2 on either the Over or the Under option and the result is incomplete, you win $2.
