4.0 COMBINATION PLAY
4.1 Combination Play or Combo Play is a feature where a Player can break down an original PRO•LINE FANTASY Selection into smaller Selections. This is completed by checking the desired combo play box on the selection slip or checking the desired combo play box on the wagering section of the PRO•LINE Stadium website.
For example: A Player selects the following 3 pick ticket for a $2 Wager
Group 01-Selection 1; Group 02-Selection 2; Group 03-Selection 3
By choosing to play “Combo to 2 picks”, the Player will also receive the following selections on the same ticket. These are determined by using the 3 original Selections and creating all the possible 2 parlay ticket combinations.
Group 01, Selection 1; Group 02, Selection 2;
Group 01, Selection 1; Group 03, Selection 3;
Group 02, Selection 2; Group 03, Selection 3;
In this example, the total Wager placed will be $8. This is $2 for the original three (3) pick parlay, and $6 for the three (3) additional two (2) pick parlays.
4.2 In Combination Play, as is described above, a Player does not have to win all the Wagers on the ticket to have a Winning ticket. This is because 4 different sets of Wagers were created that are all independent of each other, therefore all have a different prize payout based on that combination on the parlay. In the example above, if Group 01 Selection 1 wins it’s group ,Group 02 selection 2 wins it’s group and Group 03 Selection 1 wins it’s group, the ticket above will have one (1) winning set of Selections of the four (4) listed and the Corporation will pay the one (1) winning set of Selections.
4.3 In Combination Play, the Corporation will limit the total Wager on a Combination ticket to $250. If the Selection and its Combination components have a combined total Wager of over $250, the Selection will be rejected.
