5. WHAT IS A “PUSH”?

When the combined total score of both teams matches equal to exactly the Over/Under number, the event will be considered a "PUSH" and the odds for the event, for the over and the odds for the under wager, shall be assigned an odds value of 1.00.

6. WHAT DE THE O, U OUTCOMES MEAN?

The "O" represents the total score of a game to be "Over" the number set by OLG. The "U" represents the total score of a game to be "Under" the number set by OLG.

7. CAN I SELECT A V+ AND V OUTCOME OR AN H+ AND H OUTCOME ON THE SAME EVENT?

No, a player can only select one of the V+, V, T, H, H+ outcomes. However the player can make an O or U selection on the same event.

8. DO I HAVE TO MAKE AN O/U PICK WHEN PLAYING PRO•LINE?

No, the Over/Under wager is an option on PRO•LINE. Players can make a ticket with the V+, V, T, H, H+ outcomes for a minimum of three events.

9. CAN I MAKE A PRO•LINE TICKET BY SELECTING ONLY OVER/UNDER OUTCOMES?

Yes, a player could make a wager using just Over/Under outcomes. You must select at least three outcomes to place a wager.

10. DO I HAVE TO WAGER ON AT LEAST THREE, AND UP TO SIX, SPORTS EVENTS?

Players must select at least three OUTCOMES. That means a player can make a PRO•LINE wager and an Over/Under wager on the same sport event for a total of two OUTCOMES. The player would then have to make at least one wager on another sport event to have the minimum of three outcomes.

11. CAN I SELECT TWO OUTCOMES FOR ONE EVENT?

Yes, players can select one outcome from the V+, V, T, H, H+ outcomes and one from the O, U outcomes.

12. HOW MANY EVENTS ARE OFFERED FOR WAGERING AT A TIME?

There can be a maximum of 99 events offered for wagering at any one time.

13. IS THERE A LIMIT TO THE WAGERS THAT PRO•LINE WILL ACCEPT?

Yes. We have various controls in order to protect the financial integrity of PRO•LINE. These controls include the limits on PRO•LINE sales to individual customers, daily maximums for each retail account, and maximum payouts. We must be able to limit the financial risk. For individual customers, the limit is $100 wagered for both PRO•LINE and POINT SPREAD on any one day.

14. IS THERE A LIMIT ON PRIZES PRO•LINE WILL PAY?

Yes, but the limits for prizes are well above what has ever been won, and so we don't expect to have to invoke these limits. For each of the sports games, the maximum we will pay in a day is $5 million plus two times the sales for those tickets for which the final event takes place that day. The most we will pay on any individual sports game ticket is $600,000. The most a player can spend on sports is unchanged at $100 per day for each of PRO•LINE and POINT SPREAD.

15. What happens to my wager when an event is postponed or cancelled?

For most sports, under PRO•LINE rules whenever an event offered for wagering is postponed or cancelled, the odd for that selection on your wager reverts to 1.0 and that selection counts as being "correct". If you are correct with all the other selections on your wager, then you still win.

16. WHAT HAPPENS WITH PRO•LINE PRIZE MONEY THAT IS NOT CLAIMED AFTER ONE YEAR?

Unclaimed prizes from PRO•LINE are directed to OLG profits paid to the provincial government to benefit the people of Ontario.
