Live wagering is available online ONLY.
Live Lines are available for all major sports and consist only of straights wagers (no hookups) that vary between a spread, total and or moneyline depending on the event.
All Live lines are for the complete game score including overtime unless otherwise stated.
Live Lines will be offered at our discretion. We do not guarantee a line at any point in the game.
Live lines have the same rules as the regular lines for grading purposes.
All players playing live in game line agreed to the following RULES****
We reserve the right to refuse, restrict, cancel or limit any live game wager.
All live wagering tickets are subject for review during the duration of the game, for the wager to stand.
Past post tickets due to linechange and/ or score after tickets are submitted will not be acceped.
Any obvious or bad line as judged by us will be canceled regardless of when the wager was placed.
Do to the nature of the live lines there is a retention period after placing a wager for review to have action.
DEFINITION: If you have a ticket number, it means you submitted a request for betting that line and it does not mean your bet is CONFIRMED. Once we received that ticket it will then be subject for review for the wager to have action.
In the event of any particular infomation (line, score, and time of game etc) being incorrect we assume NO liability for this.
For the purpose of live in-game betting, customers should be aware that transmissions described as live by some broadcasters may actually be delayed. The extent of any delay may vary between customers, depending on the set-up through which they are receiving pictures or data.
Straight bets are bets placed on a side or a total or money line on any sport. As well as special wagers such as futures, propositions or match ups.
A straight bet on a spread (one of the playing teams) usually involves a point-spread. In this case you are wagering on a team to win the given time period on which you wager (game, halves or periods) after the score is adjusted by the particular point-spread. Normally point spreads are at a flat line, which means risking $110 to win $100. The favorite is denoted by the minus sign and the underdog by the plus sign. Home teams are always listed on the bottom, unless otherwise specified, for example Bowl games.
Colts -1 ½ Dolphins +1 ½, if you take the Colts, they must win by at least 2 points, in order to cover the spread, and if you take the Dolphins, they can lose by 1 point, for them to be covered by the spread.
When you wager on a total you are wagering that the score of the game for the given time period (game, halves or periods) will be over or under a designated number. This wager is for the combined total for both teams playing to go over or under the designated number. There is also Team Totals, in which case only the selected team's score will count towards the wager. Normally totals are at a flat line, which means risking $110 to win $100. Total wagers on the full game or 2nd half include overtime periods except in the case of Soccer when three way betting is offered ( the tie is offered as a betting option). If the tie is offered as an option overtime is not included in the calculation of the game total. Overtime is NOT included in 4th quarter wagers or 3rd period wagers.
Money lines are used to some degree in most major Sports. In a money-line bet you are wagering on the outright winner of the contest independent of any point-spread. For every money line there is one number for each of the two sides of the play, the underdog and the favorite. An example of a money-line in football is:
Colts -140 Dolphins +120
In this example the favorite is denoted by the minus sign and the underdog by the plus sign. You would wager $140 to win $100 on the Colts (the favorite) and you would wager $100 to win $120 on the Dolphins (the underdog). Because no point-spread is used to determine the winner you must risk more money to win less on the favorite and vice-versa on the underdog.
When wagering on baseball you can select the run line as your wager option. A baseball run line is a combination of a point spread and a money line. In a run line you lay 1.5 runs on the favorite and also you either lay or get money depending upon the degree of the favorite. The reverse is true for the underdog. You get 1.5 runs and again you either lay or get money depending on the degree of the underdog. An example of a run line is:
Yankees +1.5 -140
Dodgers -1.5 +120
In this example you get 1.5 runs with the Yankees but you must lay $140 to win $100. If you choose the Dodgers you must lay 1.5 runs but you get $120 for every $100 you lay.
You cannot take a parlay between the run line and the Total of the same game.
Run lines are always Listed Pitchers and the game must go 9 innings, 8 1/2 if the home team is winning.
At our site we offer proposition wagers on selected college and pro games. These can include individual player propositions and team propositions. Players and teams must start the contest for the props to be considered action and where applicable the game must go the official length for the prop to be action.
Future wagers can also be found at our site. These include wagers to win the championship, conference, division, etc. Over/Under on season wins are also available. All bets are paid at the conclusion of the event or season in question. In the event of a dispute not covered here Las Vegas rules apply.
There are different limits on the various propositions and they can only be played as a straight wager no hookups are allowed.
Teasers allow you to select multiple teams AND GIVES YOU A NUMBER OF POINTS THAT CHANGES THE LINE TO YOUR ADVANTAGE. Teasers are only for football and basketball. The number of points varies depending on the sport and number of teams selected. All special and super teasers (10 to 13 points) any tie is a loss. All claims on teasers please contact your Agent.
If bets are a chain of conditional straight wagers based on two possible conditions: If win (single action) and if win, tie or cancel (double action). In the first case, single action, the bettor will have action on the next wager in the chain only if the first one wins and so on down the chain. In double action the player will have action on the next bet and so on if the first bet wins, ties or cancels. You may hook up to 10 selections max.
If bets can contain 2 or more selections and cannot have any open spots. All parts of an individual if bet must be placed at the same time and be for the same amount or lower than the one before it. All bets are graded on an individual basis. This bet lets the player have action on a multiple number of games with minimal risk. You are using the money you wagered on the first game to wager on the second and so forth. Each bet is graded independently so you do not have to win all selections like a teaser or parlay.
REVERSES ACTION REVERSE
A reverse bet (also known as an action reverse) is a set of if-bets going both forward and in reverse order.
The First Part:
IF Miami Dolphins -3.5 $110 to win $100 Double Action
(If win, push, no action, or cancelled)
Phoenix Suns (-175) Risk $110 to win $63
IF Phoenix Suns (-175) $110 to win $63 Double Action
(If win, push, no action, or cancelled)
Miami Dolphins -3.5 Risk $110 to win $100
Total risk- $220 (maximum risk) to win $326
- If the Dolphins and the Suns both win, you will win $163 on the first part of the wager and $163 on the reverse part, for total winnings of $326.
- If the Dolphins win and the Suns lose, you will lose $10 on the first part of the wager and $110 on the reverse part, for total losses of $120.
- If the Suns win and the Dolphins lose, you will lose $110 on the first part of the wager and $47 on the reverse part, for total losses of $157.
- If one team pushes, is no action, or is cancelled and the other team is a loss, you will lose $220.
- If one team pushes, is no action, or is cancelled and the other team wins, you will either win $126 (63+63) for the Suns or $200 for the Dolphins (100+100).
- A parlay is a wager in which you choose 2 or more teams or totals together in one wager in order to receive a larger payout while risking a smaller amount of money.
- You can mix and match different sports into parlays, and even create parlays with the same game (with some restrictions).
- Correlated parlays are not allowed. An example of this would be a parlay with the 1st half and the game spread of the same game.
- A loss on any part of the parlay constitutes a loss.
- In the case of a push AND all other winners the parlay reverts down one level.
For example, a 6-team parlay with one push and five winning plays would revert to a 5-team parlay for purposes of payout.
- In the case of a 2-team parlay with one push and one winner the parlay will revert to a strait wager with the amount of the parlay used as the "risk" amount.
For example a 2-team parlay with both teams at the standard -110 would pay out 91% of the parlay amount.
- When a money line is used in the parlay it has the potential to alter the payout amount in either direction depending on the line.
- Open parlays are allowed and the open spot must be filled by Sunday at midnight the week the wager was placed.
- In the case of a push and all other winners the parlay reverts down one level. For example, a 6-team parlay with one push and five winning plays would revert to a 5-team parlay and will pay 5 team parlay odds.
- In the case of a 2-team parlay with one push and one winner the parlay will revert to a strait wager with the amount of the parlay used as the "risk" amount. For example a 2-team with one push would pay out as a straight wager, based on the odds of the winning choice.
- Buying points on parlays is allowed, you may buy up to 2 pts, Note that buying points will change the payout odds.
ROUND ROBIN BETS
Round robin bets are multi-team bets between three and ten teams. These teams are then used to create as many two team parlay combinations as possible. In a round robin bet, the amount you bet is the amount that is bet on each two team parlay. If you bet $200 on 6 two team parlays, you are betting a total of $1200. If one of your teams in the round robin bet loses, then all parlays associated with that team also lose. In the case of a push with one of your teams, all parlays associated with that team become a straight bet. The risk on this straight bet is the same as the parlay. Each two team parlay has a 13/5 (2.6/1) payout.
Round Robin Bet
|3 Team Round Robin|
|Outcome||Teams||Line||Odds||Amount||Max. Risk||Max. Win||Total|
|W||NY Giants||-3 ½||-110||$100||$300||$780||$60|
Let's analyze the above Round Robin bet by each two team parlay. To figure out how many two team parlays you have simply use this formula:
NT (NT-1)/2 where NT = number of teams
In our example we have 3 two team parlays.
- NY Giants and the Chicago Bulls. You lost this parlay because your Chicago Bulls bet lost.
- NY Giants and SD Chargers. You won this parlay because both your bets were winners.
- Chicago Bulls and SD Chargers. You lost this parlay because the Chicago Bulls bet lost. As stated above, all parlays associated with a losing bet lose.
In sum, you risked $300. The maximum you could have won was $780 if all your two team parlays were winners. However, only 1 out of 3 parlays won. You lost $200 and won $260 leaving you with a total of $60.
Open wagers allow our members to play teasers or parlays making one selection at different times or even different days.
3 Team Parlay $100 to win $600
* Any open wager left unfilled/pending must be closed within the same week of action.
Buying points moves the point spread in your favor by the number of points purchased. Customers may buy half points on football and basketball game sides and totals only. First half and half-time point buying is not available. Each half point purchased increases in cost for each additional point. The maximum amount of points allowed is 2 points.
The number "3" and "7" in the football are key numbers. It costs extra to buy on and off these numbers. The amount of the extra cost will vary from league and from sport.

- In the event a tournament does not go the specified number of completed holes (usually 72), and the tournament is shortened by tournament officials, the leader at the end of the number of holes determined to be official by tournament officials shall be the winner.
Example: A tournament is scheduled for 72 holes, but only 54 holes can be played because of weather. The leader at the end of 54 holes would be declared the winner of the tournament.
- In the event that two (or more) golfers are tied for the lead at the end of regulation play, a sudden death playoff is normally used to determine the winner of the tournament. In this case, the winner of the playoff is the winner for betting purposes. All other golfers in the playoff will be graded as 2nd place finishers.
Example: Fisher and Morris are tied at the end of regulation play, and a sudden death playoff is declared. Fisher scores a 4 on the first playoff hole, and Morris scores a 5. Fisher is the winner of the tournament, and Morris is awarded a 2nd place finish.
- In some tournaments, tournament officials may have the individuals play a specified number of holes to determine the tournament winner. In this case, the golfer with the lowest score after the specified number of holes completed shall be declared the winner, and all other golfers in the playoff will be graded as 2nd place finishers.
- Golf Match-ups:
In head to head match-ups, both golfers must tee off in order to have action. If both players tee off, the golfer with the most completed holes is the winner of the match-up; if both players complete the same number of holes, the one with the lower score is the winner.
Example: Match-up money-line:If Woods and Mickelson both tee off for the tournament in question, the above match-up is "in action". If both golfers fail to make the cut to advance to the final rounds of play, the golfer with the lower score wins.
Suppose Woods completes 36 holes with a score of +8; Mickelson completes 36 holes with a score of +9. In this case, Woods wins the match-up since he has a lower score than Mickelson does.
If Woods and Mickelson complete regulation play, and each has a score of -3, the match-up would be a tie, and monies refunded, except in the case where Woods and Mickelson were tied for 1st place at the end of regulation play (in which case a sudden death playoff would be used to determine the winner).
