1.2 In these rules, words in the singular shall include the plural and words in the masculine gender shall include the feminine.
1.3 If there is a discrepancy in the content of these Rules between the English and the French versions, the English version shall prevail.
2.1 The following apply to and govern the PRO•LINE Lottery Game offered by the Corporation in participating Atlantic Provinces. To the extent of any discrepancy or inconsistency between these documents, they shall be interpreted in accordance with the following order of precedence:
a) The Rules and Regulations of the Corporation, with necessary modifications;
b) these Rules and Regulations;
c) conditions, explanations and instructions appearing on PRO•LINE selection slips, games lists, How to Play content and tickets;
d) terms or conditions governing play on ALC.ca or ProlineStadium.com (or any replacement sites).
2.2 The Corporation may amend these Rules at any time and in any manner.
2.3 The Corporation, in its sole discretion, may at any time refuse to issue tickets bearing any Selection or refuse to issue tickets based on the Payout Threshold. The Player will receive an error message at retail or online when the projected payout on the ticket is greater than the Payout Threshold.
2.4 The Corporation, in its sole discretion, may delay entering the Results of any Event.
2.5 All Results entered by Atlantic Lottery Corporation are final. The Corporation does not recognize protests, overturned decisions or amended results for wagering purposes. All Results are final as entered, when entered.
2.6 The Corporation may, in its sole discretion, suspend sales (temporarily or permanently) on an Event.

a) An Event where the teams are not correctly entered as the visiting and home teams.
Events taking place at a neutral site will have visitor and home designations arbitrarily assigned. PRO•LINE identifies as many of these as possible (with a neutral site message) on the games list, but results will stand regardless of whether this designation is noted. Events played as part of a tournament, where the location of the games does not determine visitor and home designations, are considered neutral site and may not have an identifier on the PRO•LINE list.
Similarly, Props are offered with arbitrary visitor and home designations and are not subject to be cancelled based on the order in which they appear.
b) An Event where the teams are not correctly entered as competing against each other in an Event scheduled by the governing body of the applicable league for same date.
In cases where the participants entered were correct but the date of the Event was not, all bets will stand should the official date assigned by the governing body be within two (2) days of the date posted by PRO•LINE (whether before or after), and there are no other Events scheduled between the two teams or players participating in the Event during those two days. Past-posting rules will still apply where applicable.
c) An Event where the details of the offering are determined by the Corporation to have been entered in error, such as (but not limited to) the criteria for one or more Selections within the offering being unattainable.
2.12 Unless otherwise stated for specific bet types within these Rules and / or on the Event list, a competition must have started for it to be resulted with winning and losing Outcomes. Walkovers or other conditions where a winner is determined by the governing body as a result of withdrawal from the opposing competitor(s) will result in all Markets being cancelled and odds values for all possible Outcomes set to be 1.00.
2.13 When there is a forfeit (or other forms of teams or players withdrawing) after an event has started where a winning Outcome is declared by the league which governs the event, and the situation is not specifically covered within these Rules, all Spreads, Totals, Outrights and 3 Outcome Moneyline Markets will be Cancelled, along with all associated Props. Only head to head two (2) Outcome Moneyline Markets will be resulted with winning and losing Outcomes. The Outcome would also be applied to game winners for any associated Odds Boosts Events.

All other Events will be cancelled, with odds values for all possible Outcomes set to be 1.00. Exceptions may apply by sport and will be noted in these Rules and / or on the event list.
An exception to this rule (2.14) is Baseball. All wagering markets on Postponed Baseball games, along with any Prop Selections offered as part of a Postponed Baseball game, will be cancelled with odds values for all possible outcomes set to be 1.00
Additional Exceptions may apply by sport and will be noted in these Rules and / or on the event list.
2.15 Suspended events which are replayed from the beginning will be treated the same as Postponed events.

Exceptions may apply by sport and will be noted in these Rules and / or on the Event list.
2.16 Unless otherwise stated, if a Selection (such as a team, player, scoring option, or other option), not listed as a potential Outcome wins a PRO•LINE Event in which there is no “Field” option available, all Selections which were listed will be considered non-winners.
2.17 Markets which have a “Push” as a Result will be treated as Cancelled with the Odds reverting to 1.00.
2.18 Season long offerings based on criteria such as the accumulation of wins and player point totals are based on an entire season being played. A shortened season will result in all bets being Cancelled unless otherwise stated. If PRO•LINE Events are created and sold based on a shortened season, it will be indicated on the wagering list and bets will subsequently stand.
Bets will also stand, regardless of whether the season is shortened, on season long offerings where the winners of such bets are not dependent on the number of games played. This would include bets on offerings such as (but not limited to) league champions and player awards, so long as the governing body officially recognizes these accomplishments and awards.
Should the end date of a season change from what was originally scheduled, but this date does not impact the offering itself, all bets will stand.
2.19 If the name of a player or team has been spelled incorrectly, bets placed will stand.
2.20 If a game or Event changes venues, all bets will stand unless the venue change results in home field advantage changing from one team or player to the other. When the home field advantage does change, all wagers on the Event will be Canceled with Odds values for all Markets set to be 1.00.
2.21 Unless otherwise stated, all Events and Markets include extra play, but do not include shoot-outs. Exceptions will be noted within these Rules and / or the wagering list.

Players should also understand the PRO•LINE Tie Rules by sport. These can be found in the How to Play section on prolinestadium.com, as well as under Rule 3.0.
PRO•LINE Tie Rules are only applicable to games with three (3) Outcome Moneyline Markets. For all sports and Propositions which do not have a specific PRO•LINE Tie Rule, the following applies on Events which include a three (3) Outcome Moneyline Market:

All Markets (Moneyline, Spread and Total) on these Events include extra play. Shootouts are not included.

3.9 COMBAT SPORTS
a) Combat Sports (including, but not limited to Boxing and MMA) may be offered as two (2) or three (3) outcome wagering events for Moneyline, with "Visitor" and "Home" values being arbitrarily assigned for wagering purposes. The winning outcome is assigned regardless of how the fight was won, whether by KO, TKO, DQ, decision, technical decision or otherwise. For three (3) Outcome Events, a bout ending in a Draw (after all rounds completed) or a technical draw (going to scorecards before all rounds are complete, typically due to an accidental injury) will be scored as a PRO•LINE tie. For two (2) Outcome Events, a Draw or Technical Draw will be considered a "push" (Cancelled) with Odds reverting to 1.00 for both Selections. In the case of a Draw, all bets on Totals markets will stand. Should the bout end as a “no contest”, all betting Markets will be Cancelled.
b) When a Player selects a Combat Sports Event, all bets stand once one second has come off the fight clock to start the first round. The decision as announced and verified at ring or cage-side will be used to grade all betting Markets, subject to these Rules.
c) Additionally, all bets stand if in the following situations:
i- Fights that involve an extra round(s) or a “sudden victory” round(s);
ii- The number of scheduled rounds is changed *exceptions for “Totals” found below;
iii- Any situation where the fight is held at a different weight class than originally scheduled or is changed to a catch-weight bout;
iv- Any situation where the fight is held despite a fighter missing weight;
v- Any fight where there is a change in venue or country.
d) General Rules (2.0) apply to conditions not listed under Combat Sports. Some exceptions may apply and can be found articulated on the wagering list.
e) For Totals Markets offered on a Combat Sports Event, the Total value listed represents the total number of completed rounds. When this total ends with a “.5”, this indicates the exact midpoint of a round. For example, a Total listed as “3.5” for a fight which involves 5 minute rounds, the Total represents a value of 2 minutes and 30 seconds into the 4th round. If the fight involves 3 minute rounds, this same total would represent a value of 1 minute and 30 seconds into the 4th round. Should a fight end at the exact second of the posted Totals value, this Market will be Cancelled for all wagers.
Should the scheduled number of rounds change prior to the commencement of the fight, all bets will stand if the new number of rounds still exceeds the Total value listed. For example, if the Total was listed at “2.5” and the bout changed from 5 rounds to 3, or vice versa, a result will be entered. Should the new number of rounds be less than the Total, this Market will be cancelled for all wagers.
All Markets (Moneyline and Totals) for a Combat Sports Event will be considered incomplete and shall have an Odds value of 1.00 assigned to all Markets should one or both fighters withdraw, for any reason, prior to the start of the fight.
Auto-racing is based on team competition. The team is identified by a driver of the team. While both drivers listed in a head to head match-up on the PRO•LINE List must start the race for bets to stand, they may be replaced with another driver from the same team during the race.
a) Auto-racing Events are offered as two (2) Outcome Moneyline Markets. The winning Outcomes are determined by the Corporation in the following order or priority:
1 - The team with the higher finishing position in the race will win the Event;
2 - If only one team is credited with a finishing position, that team shall be declared the winner;
3 - If neither team is credited with a finishing position, the team with the most completed laps shall be declared the winner of the Event.
b) If the official association for the race declares a tie between the two (2) teams involved in the PRO•LINE Event, the Event will be treated as a “push” and the Odds will revert to 1.00.
c) Final Results include penalties or disqualifications incurred during and / or after the race by any driver. PRO•LINE results will not be entered by the Corporation until the official governing body declares the results as official.
d) If a driver offered on the PRO•LINE List withdraws or is forced to quit a race before the start of said race, the Corporation will treat the match with that driver as incomplete and all Odds will be set to be 1.00.
a) Horse racing wagers are specific to the horse. In the event of a jockey change all wagers will stand. Horses listed head to head in two (2) Outcome Moneyline and in “Finish Top 2” matchups on the PROLINE list must start the race for bets to stand.

3.13 OTHER SPORTS
As new sports become available for wagering, Rules that do not fit under General Rules (2.0) will be added under OTHER SPORTS and / or to the PRO•LINE List for clarification.
HANDBALL AND WATER POLO
When a Player selects a Handball or Water Polo game for a Money Line selection, a Visitor Win means that the visiting team must win by one (1) or more goals; a Tie is a game which ends with each team having the same number of goals at the end of regulation time, before overtime; and a Home Win means that the home team must win by one (1) or more goals. All outcomes for a Money Line, Totals or Spreads selection do not include overtime or shootouts.
4.0 PROPOSITION BETS
Proposition Bets are subject to the Rules found under General (2.0) and by Rules by Sport (3.0).
4.1 ALC will determine the Results for each Proposition offered based upon the criteria established by the Corporation for each such Proposition and the official Results or information from the official body of the game(s) to which the Proposition Wager is related to. Proposition Events, unless otherwise stated, include extra play but do not include shootouts.
4.2 The winner of the Proposition Event will be determined by the participant or team that meets the criteria of the question, situation or Proposition offered by ALC on the PRO•LINE List.
4.3 All Results entered by Atlantic Lottery Corporation are final. In the case where the official body of the league concerned changes the Results of the Proposition after Results have been entered by the Corporation, the original entered Results (as defined by the Corporation) must and will stand.
4.4 All rules applying to incomplete Events for PRO•LINE also apply to PRO•LINE Proposition play. For example, if a Baseball game is defined as incomplete by ALC, all Proposition play relating to that incomplete Event will also be considered incomplete and the Odds will be reverted to 1.00 for all outcomes.
4.5 For Winter Sports To Win Gold offerings, athletes or teams must compete in the competition listed for bets to stand. All bets stand regardless of whether the athletes or teams listed complete their event or competition.
5.0 SERIES PLAY
5.1 For Series Play, the Corporation will assign both a Visitor Win and a Home Win Money Line to correspond to the possible outcomes of the Series play offered on the PRO•LINE List. The Player selects the team or participant he predicts will win the majority of the pre-designated games for that Series. When wagering on Spreads for a Series, the spread posted refers to the number of games won or lost by (as opposed to the points, goals, runs... used by traditional Spreads). Series Totals refer to total games played within the series regardless of which team wins the series. The Corporation will determine the Results of each Series play offered based on the Results of the official governing body of the league to which the Series play relates.
5.2 For Series play, the winner is defined by the team or participant that wins the majority of the pre-designated games offered. For example: for a seven game baseball series, the team that wins at least four of the seven games offered is declared the winner. In the case of a rainout or any form of suspension of a game in that Series, a team must still win four games.
5.3 If a Series is Cancelled by the governing body of the league, the Event will be considered incomplete and the Odds reverted to be 1.00.
6.0 COMBINATION PLAY
6.1 Combination Play or Combo Play is a feature where a Player can break down an original PRO•LINE 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
Original Wager - Event 1-Home; Event 2-Home; Event 3-Away;
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 tickets possible.
Event 1, Home; Event 2, Home;
Event 1, Home; Event 3, Away;
Event 2, Home; Event 3, Away;
In this example, the total Wager placed will be $8 ($2 for the original 3 game parlay, $6 for the three additional “2 game parlays”).
6.2 In Combination Play, as is described above, a Player does not have to win all the Selections on the ticket to have a Winning ticket. This is because 4 different sets of Selections 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 Events 1, 2, and 3 have a Home result, 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.
6.3 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.
