A parlay is a single wager that links multiple wagers; to win the bet, the player must win all the wagers in the parlay. If the player loses one wager, he loses the entire bet. However, if the player wins all the wagers in the parlay, he wins a higher payoff than if he had placed the wagers separately.


Point spread basics:

If there is a plus next to the team you selected - add those points to the final score for your team.

If there is a minus next to the team you selected – subtract those points from the final score for your team.


On Parlay Cards the odds are fixed. The minimum wager is $2. Please see the Parlay Cards for more information.

Parlay cards are available at all Sports Lottery locations on Wednesdays.

The lines for each week's coming games are posted every Monday at the Sportsbooks and Sports Lottery Retailers. Off-the-Board Parlay wagers may be made all week long.

Parlay cards must be completed with a blue/black pen or a pencil. No red ink, please. Remove the perforated stub from the card prior to presenting to the sports terminal operator.

Wagers are accepted until the kickoff of a scheduled game. Tickets go as written.

Please check your ticket(s) for accuracy before leaving the Lottery terminal.
