Team Totals and Special Spreads
The game must be completed up to within 5 minutes of normal duration. Meaning if they play all but 5 minutes or less left in the game wagers are good, but if the game gets suspended with more than 5 minutes left, wagers will be cancelled.

Hockey

NHL (National hockey League). A minimum 55 minutes of play is needed for wagering purposes. Player must play for action and overtime counts.
If a game requires a shoot-out to determine the winner, One goal will be awarded to the winner for the final score (regardless of how many goals scored in the shoot-out) which will be recognized for the total goals scored as well as the winning team.

Wagering on hockey is done by laying or taking goals and money odds. The minus sign (-) indicates the favorite; the plus sign (+) indicates the underdog.

For example, let us say the Carolina Hurricanes are (+ 1/2 even) and the Red Wings (-1/2 -1.40). You must lay 1/2 goal, and wager $140.00 to win $100.00 on the Red Wings. You must wager $100.00 and take 1/2 goal to win $100.00 on the Hurricanes.

Baseball

MLB (Major League Baseball) games are official after 5 innings of play or 4.5 innings if the home team is leading. If a game is subsequently called, or suspended, the winner is determined by the score after the last full inning. That is, unless the home team ties the score, or takes the lead in the bottom half of the inning. In that case, the winner will be determined by the score at the time the game is called.

When wagering on total runs or run lines, the game must go the regulation nine innings, or 8.5 innings if the home team is leading. Otherwise, it will constitute a no action wager and all money will be credited accordingly.

Wagers on total runs will be no action if a pitcher change occurs prior to both listed pitchers throwing at least one pitch.

Baseball wagers are accepted as listed. In the event of a pitching change prior to the game, all wagers on a team are considered no action. All wagers will be refunded to the player's account. For betting purposes, each team's starting pitcher is defined as the pitcher who throws the first pitch.

Any and all baseball series wagers must have all three games played by the end of a specified date for the wager to have action. If all the three games are not played by the specified date, then all wagers are no action. This is true even in the case where one of the team has two wins. All three games must be official as per the rules governing what constitutes an official result. Bets on series are based on the FIRST 3 games played of each series.

All baseball props must go the full nine (8½) innings, unless otherwise stated. They also must start the listed pitchers. Extra Innings count.

Wagering on baseball is done by laying or taking money odds. The minus sign (-) indicates the favorite; the plus sign (+) indicates the underdog. On money odds, whenever there is a minus sign (-), you lay that amount to win a dollar. Where there is a plus sign (+), you get that amount for every dollar wagered.

For example, let us say that the Yankees are listed at (+1.50), and that the Expos are listed at (-1.60). You must lay $160.00 to win $100.00, or $16.00 to win $10.00, on the Expos. You must lay $100.00 to win $150.00, or $10.00 to win $15.00, on the Yankees.


World Baseball Classic Rules:

Pool Wagering - In the event of a tie between 2 or 3 teams within a pool, whoever wins the tiebreaker according the world baseball classic (whichever team is considered the number 1 team from that pool in the next round) is considered the winner.

Soccer

All soccer wagers will be settled on a minimum of 90 minutes plus any injury time added by the referee. Extra time, golden goals and penalty shoot-outs do not count.

Money line wagering on soccer offers a draw line as well as side lines. In the event of a draw example: (1-1), all bets on either of the sides will be graded as losers. Again, in the event of a draw, only wagers placed on the draw line will be graded as a win. This rule does not apply to bets placed on the spread.

To win a parlay wager each of your selections must be correct. Keep in mind that, for wagering purposes, a game can end in a tie. When that happens, only wagers placed on the tie will be winning wagers. All other wagers will be losers.

Wagers taken on first goal scorer will be void if the player does not take part in the game, or comes on after a goal has already been scored. Wagers taken on last goal scorer will be void if the player does not play, or comes on as a substitute.

If any match is abandoned, or postponed, all wagers will be void, unless the relevant market result has already happened. For example, if a goal has already been scored the first goal scorer wagers will stand.

Where a venue is changed, wagers will stand, unless the game is to be played at the original away team's ground, in which case, all wagers will be void.

Golf

Should a tournament be shortened, or otherwise affected due to weather conditions, the official result will be used when settling, regardless of the number of rounds played. However, should there be no further play, after a wager is struck, that wager will be void.

For match-up betting, all of the players, listed in the match-up wager, must tee-off for your wager to have action. The player with the most completed holes wins. If the players complete the same number of holes, then the player with the lowest score wins. If the players are still tied, then the wager will be no action, and all wagers will be refunded. If both golfers in a match-up are in a playoff, then the winner of the play-off wins the match-up, and all other playoff participants tie each other.

Single day match-ups are wagers on 18-holes on a particular day (hence, term, single day match-up). Holes played as part of completion from the previous day's round, and playoff holes, are not included in single day match-ups.

Should a day's round be shortened, or otherwise affected due to weather conditions, and the round is continued the next day, the full 18 holes will be considered in determining the outcome of the wager (even if they are played over two days). If both members of the match-up do not complete the full 18 holes, all bets are no action. If both players end the 18 holes in a tie, the bet is considered a no action wager.

Motor sport

In the event that the driver, or team you wager on for the outright championship, does not start the race, your bet is considered no action, that is, there will be no refunds on the wager.

The start of any motor race is defined as the signal to start the warm-up lap. The official winner at the conclusion of the race will be the winner for wagering purposes. Both drivers in a match-up wager must start the race for the wager to have action. Races must be run within one week of the scheduled date for your wager to have action.

If a match is shortened, or otherwise affected by weather conditions, wagers will be governed by the official competition rules. If a match results in a tie, wagers will be deemed to be no action.

Tennis

All tennis wagers on the individual matches or sets. Betting must be fully completed without player's withdrawal, incapacity or disqualification for bets to stand. If a match is rescheduled due to scheduling, weather problems, bad light, etc. then all bets will have action and all wagers will stand.

All tennis future bets are placed as *"All In"* unless otherwise stated. If a player withdraws before participating, then all bets on that player are settled as a loss.

Boxing

Fights must take place within one week of the specified date for a wager to have action. A full round is only considered for wagering purposes when the bell sounds signifying the end of that round. The official stopping of a round, before the sounding of the bell, does not constitute a full round. If the fight ends in a 12 round draw, all wagers lose. If one or both fighters fail to answer the bell for a round, the fight is judged to have finished in the previous round. If the scheduled number of rounds is changed, all wagers on pick the round are void.

Horse Racing
All wagers have action unless of there are scratches. Maximum Payouts are based on a $2 ticket: 30 to win, 20 to place, 14 to show and 100 on exotic wagers. Unless specified.

All horse wagers must be placed 3 minutes before the race starts.

Other Sports

To be considered official for wagering purposes, all other sports events, that is, those that involve a scheduled length of play or time limit, must play to conclusion, or have five minutes, or less of the scheduled playing time remaining, when the event or contest concludes.

The above mentioned policy is meant as a guideline. The policy is subject to change by Management.
Payout and Wagering Rules
Baseball
Baseball wagers will be accepted in the following manner:

  • Payout odds are based upon a money-line.
  • Both Specified Pitchers: a wager that specifies both starting pitchers, any variation constitutes "no action." The starting pitcher for each team, for wagering purposes, is he who throws the initial pitch.
  • A pitcher is deemed the starting pitcher after throwing one pitch.

Straight Line Payoffs (Football and Basketball)
Member wagers 110 to win 100 unless otherwise specified.
Soccer Rules
1) Moneyline or Win Price -This is listed under the spread column and is sometimes referred to as a 2-way line. Here the bettor wagers on their team to win the match, weather it happens in regulation time (1st 90 minutes), overtime, or penalties. In the case of a tie, all money is refunded.

2) Moneyline involving a Tie -This is listed under the moneyline column and is sometimes referred to as a 3-way line because the bettor has three choices: Team A, Team B, or a Tie. This type of wagering makes sense because during the regular season it is possible for a match to end in a tie. If you wager on a team in this scenario and the outcome of the match at the end of 90 minutes is a tie, the wager is a loss. If you wager on the tie, and one of the teams wins at the end of 90 minutes, the wager is a loss.

3) Proposition Wagering -All proposition wagers are for 90 minutes only. This includes:

    a) Correct Score - Where you must correctly predict the final score of the game.
    b) First Goal Scorer - Where you must correctly predict who scores the first goal
    c) This also applies to props such as red card, yellow card, corners, first substitute or others that may be added.

4) Total Goals - Wagering on game totals (over/under) only includes goals scored in regulation time (First 90 minutes). The match must reach full-time for wagers on the total number of goals scored in the match to be valid.

5) Postponed Matches - If match is postponed and rescheduled to occur within 48 hours of the original start time, all bets stand. If the match is rescheduled for more than 48 hours later, all single bets are void and wagers refunded, while affected multiple bets will be recalculated excluding that match.

6) Abandoned Matches - Should a match be abandoned before 90 minutes of play, then all bets will be declared void and wagers refunded. Bets on propositions that have not been decided shall also be voided and wagers refunded. Bets on propositions that have been decided (examples include, but are not limited to: first goal scorer, if a goal has been scored; first half wagering, if the first half is complete; first card, if a player has been sent off or booked) will be settled and paid.

7) The terms full-time, first 90 minutes of play and normal time are used to denote the period of play that includes two halves of play plus any time the referee adds on to compensate for injuries and other stoppages. It does not include periods of extra time or penalty shootouts.

8) Different sportsbooks apply different sets of rules with regards to soccer betting. Please make sure you understand PARADE SPORTS Sports full set of rules before wagering on soccer.

  • .

Straight Wagers

This is the most common type of sports wager, based on the results of a single game. One team is favored over another by a point spread. The favorite is indicated by a minus sign (-3) and the underdog by a plus sign (+3).

The result of the bet is determined by taking the actual score and subtracting the spread of the game chosen.

Totals Wagers

The totals wager is based on the combined total number of points or goals scored by two teams in a single game. A player bets on whether the combined total number of points or goals scored by the two teams in the game will be over or under the total set by the odds maker/handicapper.  

Money Line Wager

A money line wager, instead of a point spread, may be used to bet on a match-up between two teams. In effect, if a match-up is determined by a money line, like Major League Baseball, then it will cost the player more to wager on the favorite.

For example, the Texas Rangers may be a (-150) favorite over the Detroit Tigers. In this example, the player must lay $150 in order to win $100. That is, if the Rangers win, the player wins $100. If the Rangers lose, the player loses $150. On the other hand, the player could have bet on the underdog, in which case the player would lay $100 in order to win $140 (10 cent line). If Detroit loses, the player only loses $100, but if Detroit wins, the player would win $140.

Parlay Wager

A parlay wager is a bet on two or more teams or selections. It is one of the more versatile forms of sports wagering. The player can combine different sports, point spreads and money lines. In a parlay wager the original stake and winnings are re-invested on the next game, and all selections must be correct, that is, one loss and the parlay loses.

In the event of a push (tie), game cancellation, or a pitcher who you have specified as not starting, actually starts, the parlay reduces to the next lower number. A four team parlay becomes a three team parlay. A winning parlay wager will pay many times greater than the initial wager.

No parlay wagers will be accepted where individual selections or propositions are connected.
For example, you cannot parlay the over of the first half of a football game with the over of the total game, because the two are connected.

Teaser Wager

A teaser wager is a wager on two or more teams or selections. The difference between the teaser wager and the parlay is that the player can adjust or tease the line in his/her own favor. For example, if the Denver Broncos are favored by seven points in one game, and the Seattle Seahawks are favored by 10 points in a second game, a teaser could very well favor the player. That is, a six point two team teaser would adjust the point spread six points in favor of the player. In effect, Denver would now be favored by one point (7-6 = 1) and Seattle would be favored by four points (10-6 = 4).

In this particular example the player is wagering that Denver will win by more that one point (7-6 = 1) and Seattle will win by more than four points (10-6 = 4).

IF - Win Wager

An if - win wager is a bet that carries over to a second team if the player wins on his initial selection. For example, the player has to wager a fixed amount on one team. If that team wins, or the game is tied, then another fixed amount, up to the original amount wagered, shall be placed on a different team.

The player must win his/her first wager in order to continue the action on the remaining wagers. If the first wager loses, there is no subsequent action. Note that the player cannot have duplicate teams in the same if - win wager.

Let us look at each of the following examples :

Example One:

Place a fixed wager on Denver Broncos to win with spread of (-7).

If Broncos win, a fixed wager (up to the original amount) is placed on Seattle Seahawks to win with spread of (-3).
If Seattle also wins, the player would collect $200 .00 on a stake of $110.00.

Example Two:

Place a fixed wager on Denver Broncos to win with spread of (-7).

If Broncos win, a fixed wager (up to the original amount) is placed on Seattle Seahawks to win with spread of (-3).
However, if Seattle loses, the player would lose $11.00 on a stake of $110.00.

Example Three:

Place a fixed wager on Denver Broncos to win with spread of (-7).

If Broncos lose, and Seattle wins, the player would then lose $110.00 on a stake of $110.00

Reverse Wager

A reverse wager is the same as two if - win wagers. This means that if wager A wins, the bet goes to wager B. Likewise, if wager B wins, the bet goes to wager A. On the other hand, if wager A loses, the bet does not go to wager B. And again, if wager B loses, the bet does not go to wager A. If wager A wins, the bet goes to wager B, but if wager B loses, the bet does not go to wager A.

All standard reverse bets are double action, therefore, in the event of a tie, the bet is still active.
When wagering on SAN FRANCISCO you must win by at least 7 points to win the bet. When wagering on SEATTLE you cannot lose by more than 6 points to win the bet. On the other hand if the line was a solid -6 and SAN FRANCISCO wins by exactly 6 points then the bet is a "push", and the stake or money is returned to your account.

Total (over/under)

Wagering on the total points combined on the game: To win on the "over", the total score for each team will be added together and it must exceed 40 points. When betting the "under", the total score for each team is added together and cannot exceed 39 points to win the wager, if the total score a "push" and the money is credited to your account.

Money Line Wagering

When wagering on the money line, you must win the game on the field in order to win your bet. Wagering on SAN FRANCISCO $-290, just wagering on them to win, the point spread does not matter. You must risk $290 to win $100. Wagering on SEATTLE $+240, you stake $100 to win $240.

Parlays *
Baseball and Hockey

  • Baseball and Hockey parlay odds are determined by combining the individual money-line odds for each bet comprising the entire parlay wager.
  • Please not the max you can key one  team is 8 times.

Football and Basketball



2 Teams pays 2.2/1

3 Teams pays 5/1

4 Teams pays 10/1

5 Teams pays 15/1

6 Teams pays 25/1

 7 Teams pays 50/1
8 Teams pays 75/1

  • In case of no action or tie, the parlay is reduced to the next lowest number of teams. A parlay reduced to a single game becomes a straight bet. The risking amount remains the same and the winning amount will be adjusted to the odds of the team in the straight play.
