When you verify and accept your betting account balance, you agree that all previous transactions are correct and you do not have any claims. Claims or disputes must be settled at this time.

Rollover Conditions

  • The term "rollover" simply means you must wager the specified amount at least that many times before requesting a payout.  For example, if you deposit $50 and receive a 10% Re-Up Bonus with a 4 times rollover requirement, you would only need a minimum of $150 ($50 x 4) in action prior to requesting a payout.  Once you have accepted a freeplay bonus, you cannot request a payout before the rollover requirement is fulfilled.
  • When calculating the betting action required to fulfill a rollover, the lower of the two values (to risk / to win) is always used.   For example, if you bet $20 on Team A to win $30, and you bet $20 on Team B to win $10, and you bet $10 on Team C to win $5, the total betting action applied toward fulfilling the rollover requirement would be $35 ($20 + $10 + $5).  Following the guidelines in this example, you would only need to place $115 more in betting action before requesting a payout. Only bets made on odds from 1.5 (-200) to 4.0 (+300) will count towards the Rollover, unless otherwise specified.
  • Bets that push count for the rollover.

Straight

Straight bets are made when you choose a team and the point spread. The cost of the bet is 10/11 or $110 to win $100.

Example:
Toronto Raptors +6
Chicago Bulls -6
  • If the straight bet is on the Bulls -6 then the Bulls must win by more than 6 points for the bet to win.
  • If the straight bet is on the Raptors +6 then the Raptors cannot lose by more than 5 points for the bet to win.
  • If the game lands on 6 pts. then your bet is a "push" and will result in "no action". i.e.: Final Score: Rap 90 and Bulls 96

Parlay

Two or more teams or totals can be combined to make one wager. All teams must win by the point spread margin. Circled games cannot be parlayed. Proposition plays, and future bets cannot be parlayed.

You may estimate Parlay Payoffs by following steps (example provided):

Let's say you play the Pirates +150 and the Pirate game over 8 -120 in a two team parlay and you bet $100. Use the following steps to determine your winnings or should we say potential winnings.

  • 1. Calculate Parlay Factor for each piece: if the price of the piece is positive - simply add one to get factor, if the price of the piece is negative v calculate reciprocal, multiply by -1, and then add one.
  • 1.50 + 1 = 2.50
  • -1.20 (take reciprocal or divide one by the negative price) 1/1.20 = 0.83 + 1 = 1.83
  • 2. Multiply all factors - then multiply this factor times the bet amount - the result is the payoff (including your bet)
  • 2.50 x 1.83 = 4.57 (now multiply this times your bet) x 100 = 457
  • $457 is your total return if both pieces win (including your bet amount)
  • 3. Subtract your bet from the figure calculated in 2 - Result is your winnings.
  • 457 - 100 = 357 Winnings

This will also work for three, four, five,... team parlays, simply follow the steps. Note: This is will provide you with a rough estimate; actual winnings may differ due to rounding.

  • In case of tie or no action the parlay will revert to lower level payoff, except in a 2 team parlay where a tie reverts to a straight bet.
  • (!) All parlays are based on a true odds format except for parlay cards.

Note: Maximum parlay payout is $ 150,000

Note: Maximum parlay payout will be enforced when duplicating the same exact parlays.

Teaser

Teasers are wagers in which 2 to 7 teams are selected together in one wager with an adjusted point spread. In a teaser you can add points to the sides or mix both sides and totals adding or subtracting to the totals. If one selection loses the teaser is considered a loss.

Example: 2 team teaser 5pts for $100
Lakers +4 +5 pts = the teased line is now +9
Knicks -3 +5 pts = the teased line is now +2
  • The payout in a 2 team teaser for 5 pts. is 10/11 In this case you will lay $110 to win $100.

If Bets

If bets help customers who want to have action on more than one game but based on the result of the 1st wager. There are 2 types of if bets, “If Win Only” and “If Win/Ties or cancelled.

If Win Only example:
Dallas Cowboys -5 $110 to win $100
If Win Only
Carolina Panthers +4 $110 to win $100
  • If the Cowboys lose, the wager stops there and is scored a loser -$110.
  • If the Cowboys win +$100 the wager continues to the Panthers wager.
  • If the Panthers win, the wager is a $200 winner
  • If the Panthers lose the wager is a $10 loss.
  • If the Cowboys win by exactly 5, then there will be no action on the Carolina Panthers and the 110 will go back to your account.
If Win/Ties or cancelled example:
Dallas Cowboys -5 $110 to win $100
If Win/Ties or cancelled
Carolina Panthers +4 $110 to win $100
  • In this case, customers will have action on the second part of the wager if Dallas wins by 5 or more points.

*The risk amount of the the second part of the if wager, may not exceed the risk amount of the first part.

Reverse

A Reverse wager connects two contestants in two separate IF bets. The first IF would connect contestant A to contestant B, the second bet would connect contestant B to contestant A. Keep in mind Reverses are If bets where you need to select if win only or if win/ties or cancelled.

Example:

A customer wants a $100 Action Reverse with the New England Patriots -9, and the Denver Broncos +6… the play would look like this.

Part A:

New England Patriots -9 Risking $110 to win $100, If that play wins or pushes then there will be action on the Denver Broncos +6 risking $110 to win $100. If the New England Patriots don't cover the -9 spread then there will be no action on the Denver Broncos +6.

AND

Part B:

Denver Broncos +3 risking $110 to win $100, if that play wins or pushes then there will be action on the New England Patriots -9 risking $110 to win $100. If the Broncos don't cover the +6 spread then there will be no action on the Patriots -9.

  • The total risk amount is $220.00, but the player has a possibility of winning up to $400.00.

Action Points

Action Points are available for football and basketball. Action Points are for the bettor who not only can predict which team will win the game, but by how many points. Your action point wager is capped from 1 point to a maximum of 10 points, and the wager you risk cannot exceed your available balance. On this type of wager, you risk $110 for every $100 wagered.

Example:
Atlanta Hawks 191
Houston Rockets -5
  • Suppose you wager $100 a point on the Houston Rockets and ask for a cap of 10 points. Houston must win by at least 5 points, and for every point over the point spread of 5 that they win by, you win $100. You have the chance of winning between $100 and $1,000.
  • If Houston wins by 9 points, your net winnings would be $400. On the other hand, if Houston fails to cover the point spread, you risk $110 for every point that they fall short of the 5-point spread. You can also use totals either over or under, or the underdog in the game, getting 5 points.
  • Action points can only be placed through our call center.

Money Line

Football and Basketball betting you are given the option to bet a point spread or a moneyline bet. With money lines you wager which team is going to win. Disregarding the point spread.

Example:
Orlando Magic -280
Houston Rockets +240
  • If you wager on Orlando -280 you lay $280 to win $100.
  • If you wager on Houston +240 you lay $100 to win $240.
  • The line values are determined based on the point spread. When betting money lines you are betting on a team to win the game outright.

Open Wagers

Open wagers allow the customer to play teasers or parlays making one selection at different times or even different days.

Example: 3 Team Parlay $100 to win $600
Cowboys -8
Dolphins -14
OPEN*
  • Any open wager left unfilled/pending for more than 90 days will be cancelled.
  • No open spots on 10 pt teasers. No open spots on 4 team or more parlays.
  • The minimum amount for a bet placed online with 1 or 2 open spots is $50 and customer must call to fill the open spots.

Example:
Green Bay Packers -7
Denver Broncos +7

Betting on Football | Football Totals (Over/Under)

This is a wager on the combined scores (total) of a game. That being over or under the posted line. If you place a wager for UNDER 38, the combined total score of both teams must fall UNDER 38 pts.

Example:
Baltimore Ravens VS Atlanta Falcons
TOTAL IS 38

  • If the combined total score falls on 38 pts., the wager is a "PUSH" and there is "NO ACTION".
  • Overtime counts for wagers placed for the game and for the 2nd half
  • Overtime does not count for 4th quarter wagers

Betting on Football | Football Money Line Wager

With this type of wager you stipulate which team is going to win. Disregarding the point spread.

Example:
Green Bay Packers -7
Denver Broncos +7
  • If you wager on Green Bay -280 you lay $280 to win $100.
  • If you wager on Denver +240 you lay $100 to win $240.

Betting on Football | Football Parlay Wager

This play is a selection of teams in no particular order, in one play. All teams must win by the pointspread margin. The more amount of teams, the greater the payoff.

Example:
2 team parlay for $100
Green Bay Packers -7
Denver Broncos +7
  • The payout in a 2 team parlay is 2.64 this means you are risking $100 to win $264. In case of a tie or no action the parlay will revert to the lower level payoff, except in a 2 team parlay where a tie reverts to a straight bet laying the original amount at risk.

Betting on Football | Football Teaser Wager

In case of a tie or no action the Teaser will revert to the next teaser of fewer teams, except in a 2 Team Teaser where a tie and win will be no action. If one selection loses the teaser is considered a loss.

Example:
2 team teaser 7pts for $100
Green Bay -7+7 pts = the teased line is now "pick"
Denver Broncos +7+7 pts = the teased line is now +14
  • The payout in a 2 team teaser for 7 pts. is 10/13 In this case you will lay $130 to win $100.

Betting on Football | Football Pleaser Wager

This is a wager in which 2 to 6 teams are selected together in one wager with an adjusted 6 point spread in favor of the house. In a pleaser you subtract points from the sides (no totals allowed). If one selection loses the teaser is considered a loss.

Example:
2 team pleaser 6pts for $100
Green Bay -7-6 pts = the teased line is now -13
  • Denver Broncos +7-6 pts = the teased line is now +1
  • The payout in a 2 team pleaser is 6 to 1. In this case you would lay $100 to win $600.

Basketball

Official Game Times

Bets are considered official after 43 minutes of play (NBA) or 35 minutes of play (NCAA). If the official time of play is not conducted, a bet on the team is treated as no action, and a parlay bet will be reduced accordingly.

Game must be played on scheduled date and site.

Team Totals and Special Spreads

The game must be completed up to within 5 minutes of normal duration.

Player Props

All players must take the court and play for action. Results are based on the official stats from the game.

Basketball Betting | Straight Bet

This wager is made when you choose a team and the point spread. The cost of the wager is 10/11 or $110 to win $100.

Example:
Toronto Raptors +6
Chicago Bulls -6
  • If the straight bet is on the Bulls -6 then the Bulls must win by 6 or more points for the wager to win.
  • If the game lands on 6 pts. then the game is a "push" and will result in "no action".
  • If the straight bet is on the Raptors +6 then the Raptors cannot lose by more than 6 points for the wager to win.

Basketball Betting | Totals (Over/Under)

This is a wager on the combined scores (total) of a game. That being over or under the posted line. The cost of the wager is 10/11.

Example:
Dallas Mavericks
Indiana Pacers
TOTAL IS 178
  • If you place a wager for UNDER 178, the combined total score of both teams must fall UNDER 178 pts.
  • If you place a wager for OVER 178, the combined total score of both teams must go OVER 178 pts.
  • If the combined total score falls on 178 pts. the wager is a "PUSH" and there is "NO ACTION".
  • Overtime counts for wagers placed for the game and for the 2nd half
  • Overtime does not count for 4th quarter wagers

Basketball Betting | Money Line

With this type of bet you wager which team is going to win. Disregarding the point spread.

Example:
Orlando Magic -280
Houston Rockets +240
  • If you wager on Orlando -280 you lay $280 to win $100.
  • If you wager on Houston +240 you lay $100 to win $240.

Basketball Betting | Parlay

This play is a selection of teams in no particular order, in one play. All teams must win by the pointspread margin. The more amount of teams, the greater the payoff.

Example:
2 team parlay for $100
Portland Trail Blazers +4
San Antonio Spurs -10
  • The payout in a 2 team parlay is 2.64 this means you are risking $100 to win $264. In case of a tie or no action the parlay will revert to the lower level payoff, except in a 2 team parlay where a tie reverts to a straight bet.

Basketball Betting | Teaser

In case of a tie or no action the Teaser will revert to the next teaser of fewer teams, except in a 2 Team Teaser where a tie and win will be no action. If one selection loses the teaser is considered a loss.

Example:
2 team teaser 5pts for $100
Lakers +4+5 pts = the teased line is now +9
Knicks -3+5 pts = the teased line is now +2
  • The payout in a 2 team teaser for 5 pts. is 10/11 In this case you will lay $110 to win $100.

Baseball

Official Game Time

Winners and Losers are official after 5 innings of play unless the home team is leading after 4½ innings. If a game is called or suspended, the score after the last full inning determines the winner. If the home team scores to tie - or takes the lead in the bottom half of the inning and the inning is not completed, the score at the time the game is called determines the winner. Events will not carry over to the following day (unless otherwise specified). BetCRIS does not recognize suspended games, protests, overturned decisions, etc. for betting purposes.

When betting on the total runs (over/under) the game must go 9 innings (8½ if the home team is ahead) to have action. Wagers on total runs will be refunded if a pitcher change occurs prior to both listed pitchers throwing at least one pitch. Rules for the run line wagers are the same as those for baseball totals.

Game must be played on scheduled date and site. **During the MLB Playoffs, games all wagers will have action until the game is played to completion, regardless of their duration or the day on which they end.**  

Pitcher Selection

Baseball wagers will be accepted in the following manner:

Action
Team against team, regardless of the starting pitcher. "Action" bets will be computed by the opening price with the new pitcher. A pitcher is deemed a starting pitcher after throwing one pitch.
Overnight Baseball
Due to scheduling changes an overnight game may become a part of a doubleheader. When this occurs, Unless both pichers from the overnight matchup start in GAME 1, then the original matchup from overnight will be treated as an off pitcher matchup. Game 2 will be treated as a completely 'new' matchup.
One specified pitcher
A wager on or against a specified pitcher, regardless of the other starting pitcher.
Both specified pitchers (listed)
If starting pitchers are not exactly as listed on betting display board and/or your ticket, your bet will be deemed "no action".
Note:
If there is a pitching change prior to the game, money odds may be adjusted. If one scheduled pitcher starts against any unscheduled pitcher, "action" wagers will be computed by the opening price with the new pitcher. A pitcher is deemed a starting pitcher after throwing one pitch.

Baseball Betting | Money Line

Betting on baseball is done by risking more money than the win amount on favorites (Mets) or risking less to win more on dogs or underdogs (teams not favored to win).

Example:
Mets - 140
Reds + 120
  • If you wager on the Mets -140 you lay $140 to win $100. If you wager on the Reds +120 you lay $100 to win $120.

Baseball Betting | Totals Over/Under

There is a standard 20 cent line.

Example:
Mets 7 over -120
7 under Even Money
  • If you take the Mets over 7 runs you lay $120 to win $100. If you take the Reds under 7 you lay $100 to win $100 (even money). The team doesn't matter. You are only betting on the total runs of the game.

Baseball Betting | Run Line Betting

A baseball Run Line bet is a combination of the point spread and the money line. The team wagered on must win by the point spread while the amount wagered is determined by the money line odds.

Example:
Braves -1 1/2 +130
Pirates +1 1/2 -150
  • If you wager on the Braves you must win by 2 or more runs. You would lay $100 to win $130.
  • If you wager on the Pirates they cannot lose by 2 or more runs. You would lay $150 to win $100.

Baseball Betting | Parlays

The following chart can be used to calculate the payoff on baseball betting parlays. You can select from 2 to 15 teams. Use the factor corresponding to the line if you are betting on the favorite; if betting on the underdog add 1 to the line. Maximum parlay payout is $ 150,000

Example:
Taking the Pirates +220 and the Braves -135 in a 2 team parlay for $100 100(wager) x 3.2 x 1.74 - 100(wager)= $457
Example:
3 team parlay taking the Red Sox +148, Mets EVEN and Texas -119 for $100 100(wager) x 2.48 x 2.00 x 1.840 - 100(wager)= $813

MLB - SERIES

Bets on series are based on the FIRST 3 GAMES PLAYED of each series. Neither team can play another opponent between scheduled games. If one of the first three games gets postponed, all wagers stand (ACTION). If less than 3 games are played, the team with the advantage is the winner of the series.

All wagers are based on action. (no listed pitchers)

Soccer

Money line wagering on soccer offers a draw line as well as sides. 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 bet placed on the spread.

The result of the game is decided after 90 minutes of play plus injury time. Extra time / overtime / golden goal is not taken into consideration for soccer bets unless otherwise stipulated.

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

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

Teams will be ranked on the following criteria:

1. Advanced the farthest
2. Greater number of points in all group matches
3. Goal difference in all group matches
4. Greater number of goals scored in all group matches
5. Greatest number of points in matches between tied teams
6. Goal difference in matches between tied teams
7. Greatest number of goals scored in matches between tied teams

"Handicap" (same as "spread" in the American sports) means a fictive head start given to one of the teams (by default the underdog) - virtually leading the game by 0.25 goal, 0.5 goal, 0.75 goal , 1 goal, 1.5 goal, etc. The punter must either back the favorite to beat this handicap or the underdog to hold it. The default handicap could be also 0 goals (level ball) when both teams are estimated as more or less equal. It looks abstract at first glance but not hard to comprehend.

The Asian Handicap bet is settled by adding the handicap to the actual result of the game.

For example if Wigan have received 0.5 goal advantage against Blackburn (Wigan +0.5) and the game ends with a draw, the bet on Wigan wins by half a goal. Bets on Blackburn are winning if Rovers just win no matter with what result, that simple. When we have -1.5 handicap the favorite must win the game at least by 2 goals margin, otherwise the underdog (+1.5) is winning by half or more goals. For 0, 1 and 2 goals handicap the bet result could be a virtual draw and in this case all stakes are refunded. For example if Man United are set one goal down to Middlesbrough and they win exactly by 1 goal, the Asian Handicap result is draw and all bets are settled as void.

In fact many Asian Handicap lines cover exactly the same thing as other betting options - no need to mention what -0.5 means, the 0 goals handicap is equal to "Draw No Bet", +0.5 is same as backing the underdog at "Double Chance", -1.5 is same as Euro Handicap (0:1). Odds are usually higher though as we underlined one of the main advantages of AH betting.

Before going further it is very important to note that in live (in-play) betting Asian Handicap bets usually apply only to the remaining time of the game and NOT to the whole 90 minutes. Anyway be sure to check the bookmake’rs rules first.

We got the base of Asian Handicap betting which is certainly not hard to be figured out. The only challenge in AH comes with the so-called "split" handicaps because lines like -0.25 or +1.75 look weird and confusing. Lacking a clear standard to display split handicaps doesn`t help, various bookies and sites use different formats to show one and the same thing so you can see 0.75 as "3/4" or "0.5, 1" ; 1.25 as "1 1/4" or "1, 1.5" etc. Not a problem though once we get the idea.

Now this is the key - note that 0.25 is average value between 0 and 0.5, 0.75 is average between 0.5 and 1, 1.25 is average between 1 and 1.5. Most bookies give a hint in the way they display handicaps like 0, 0.5 or 0.5, 1. In these cases the bet is virtually split in two separate handicap bets. For example, if you bet 10 EUR on -0.75 (-0.5, -1) goal handicap in fact you bet 5 EUR on -0.5 and 5 EUR on -1 goal handicap. If your team wins by 2-1, half of your bet (5 EUR) is winning with the given odds (that going for the -0.5 handicap) and the other half of your stake will be refunded.

One more example - lets say we bet 50 EUR on Torino +0.25 (0, +0.5) against Parma, odds 1.80. If Torino wins, it is clear that we will take 90 EUR. If the game ends with a draw, half of our stake is winning (25 EUR x 1.80 = 45 EUR) and the remaining 25 EUR are refunded, overall we get back 70 EUR. On the opposite, if we bet on Parma -0.25 (0, -0.5) and the game result is draw, half of our bet (-0.5) will be lost and the other half (25 EUR) will be refunded.

Asian goal lines (betting on the total number of goals scored in a game) are quite alike the classic under / over bets but here you can find more different lines as 1.75 goals, 2.25 goals etc. which work with the same idea as the split handicaps. Just something that must be mentioned, in live betting unlike Asian Handicap goal lines apply to the whole 90 minutes.

Line Types

We offer 3 different types of lines for Hockey; The Canadian Line, 3 Way Option), and Straight Money Lines.

Hockey Betting | Canadian Line

The Canadian line is a combination of a goal and money line. The money line is a 20 cent line for straight bets.

Example:
Boston Bruins +1 1/2 -140
L.A. Kings -1 1/2 +120
  • If betting on the Kings the customer would give up a goal and a half and would risk $100 to win $120; the Kings would have to win by at least two goals. If betting on the Bruins, the customer would get a goal and half but would risk $140 to win $100.

Hockey Betting | Money Line

All money line options are prices to win the game outright, according to NHL rules.

Example:
Boston Bruins +110
L.A. Kings -130
  • If you select the Bruins to win the game, betting $100 would win you $110. If you select the Kings to win, you would need to risk $130 to win $100.

Hockey Betting | Totals Over/Under

Example:
Bruins +1 1/2 -140 5 OVER -130
Kings -1 1/2 +120
  • As well as having favorites on sides you also have favorites on totals, in this example over the total of five goals is indicated as the favorite in which case the customer would lay $130 to win $100. If betting on the game to go under five goals the customer goes with the underdog so he/she receives a larger return in this case risking $100 to win $110. If there is no money line indicated the total has a "FLAT" line or -110 whether betting over or under, in which case the customer would lay $110 to win $100 either way. When you wager on total pucks, if the score falls on the number in this case five, it will be "no action".
Hockey Parlays Betting

Hockey Parlays

With hockey parlays you can combine anywhere from 2 to 15 teams into a single wager resulting in higher betting payouts as in baseball parlays. Note: Hockey parlays are calculated as they are in baseball. Maximum parlay payout is $ 150,000

Streak Challenge FAQ

Can I make more than one pick at a time?
No. The game is designed so you can only make one pick per day. Note that once you have a matchup picked you can NOT change it even if the match up has not started yet. All picks are final.
If my pick ends in a PUSH is my streak reset back to 0?
No! Any matchup that goes final with a PUSH result is scored as if the event didn't happen.
How many matchups will be on the board each day?
It depends on the day’s sporting schedule. There is no fixed limit to how many or how few each day.
Can a matchup be pulled off the board after I've picked it?
Yes, matchups can be removed from the board at anytime. There are a number of different circumstances which can lead this happening. The most common are weather delays. In most cases this will not happen after a significant amount of time has taken place, or the outcome is mostly already decided. Matchups can also be pulled off the board if a significant change in the winning probability is determined. An example of this can be player injuries or suspensions which are announced day of the event.
How are matchups scored if a player or players in a listed prop do NOT end up playing?
Any prop that states a player or players must start will be cancelled and pushed for all pickers if one or more of the players doesn't start. (i.e. Which QB will record MORE PASSING YARDS in the FIRST HALF? (Both Must Start). If one or both of the QBs do NOT start the game, the prop will scored as a PUSH). If a player is scratched from the lineup prior to the game, the prop will be scored as a PUSH.
