  • General Sports Rules

    The General Sports Rules as listed below apply to all sports unless otherwise stated in the specific rules for individual sports and events.

    Odds
    Odds on PlayNow are dynamic and always potentially subject to change (or removal) without prior notice.

    Venue Changes
    If an event is no longer taking place at the venue advertised, bets will still stand as long as the venue has not been changed to the opponent's ground (or in the case of international matches, as long as the venue remains in the same country).

    However, the Corporation reserves the right to void any bet where it is determined that a change of venue has had a significant impact on the odds of the match.

    Competitors with the same name
    Where there is more than one competitor with the same surname and a selection has not been identified by either first name, team (where applicable), or qualifying odds, the competitor with the lowest advertised odds will be taken as the selection. In the event of one or more competitors being offered at the lowest advertised odds then the wager will be divided between them.

    Related contingencies (Correlated bets)
    Parlay bets are not accepted where the outcome of one event contributes wholly or partly to the outcome of another. The Corporation has the right to restrict or allow certain selections to be parlayed at its discretion. If taken in error, the bet will be settled at the "special odds" for the parlay at the time of the bet.

    Example:
    A $20 2-event parlay (double) for the Canucks to win the Western Conference Finals @ odds of 3.00 and Canucks to qualify for the Stanley Cup Finals @ 1.50 is settled as a $20 double at odds of 3.00. (If Canucks have won the Western Conference Finals, then they would automatically qualify for the Stanley Cup Finals)

    However, where the related parts of the bet are resolved at different times the bet will be settled as instructed, with the odds for the second or subsequent bets within the parlay being determined at each individual stage.

    Example:
    A $20 2 event parlay (double) on Canucks to win the Western Conference Finals and Canucks to win the Stanley Cup Finals is settled as instructed with the odds for Canucks to win the Stanley Cup Futures being the next odds offered by the Corporation after the Western Conference Final has been concluded. Should Canucks lose either the Western Conference Final or Stanley Cup Final then the bet is a non-winner.

    If any bets are accepted in error on the same selection or team to win multiple events we reserve the right to void such bets or to place them at a special odds for the parlay as indicated above.

    Power Picks
    All outcomes within a Power Pick must be correct (as specified in the terms posted) in order to win. Power Picks cannot be parlayed with any other bets. The Corporation has the right to void any Power Pick or bet with enhanced odds that is comprised of an event that is not completed (e.g. abandoned, postponed).

    Championship, League/Tournament, Cup/trophy competitions
    Unless the Corporation specifies other terms, we will settle Futures betting on the player or team that lifts the trophy.

    Point Spread (Handicap) Bets
    In the event that the outcome of a Point Spread (or handicap) bet settles on the exact spread (line) offered in a bet, that selection is deemed void (or a 'push').

    For a parlay bet where one (or more) picks have been deemed void and there remains at least one valid pick within the original parlay, those void picks will be reassigned odds of 1.00 and the bet will stand. For bets in which all picks have been deemed void, the players wager on those bets will be returned.

    Top Goal Scorer/ Point Scorer bets
    Top goal scorer/point scorer in a competition will be settled in accordance with dead heat reduction rules if players finish on the same number of goals/points scored, regardless of whether an official result is determined by other means by the sports ruling body.

    Fraud or Suspicious activity, Event Rigging or Fixing
    Where there is evidence or suspicion of illegal or fraudulent activity, or of odds, race, game, match or event rigging or fixing, we reserve the right to suspend your account and/or withhold payment, pending the outcome of any subsequent investigation and ultimately to declare bets on that event as void. Where evidence of rigging exists or where there is evidence of a series of bets each containing the same selection(s), having been placed by or for the same individual or by a syndicate of individuals, we reserve the right to require claims for payment to be made to our customer support department.

    In the event of an official inquiry in relation to suspicious betting activity surrounding an event, we reserve the right to disclose confidential information to the sport's governing body or their representatives, on the condition that they consent to keeping such information confidential.

    Live Scores and Statistical information
    Live scores and other statistical information displayed on PlayNow.com are supplied through a third party and are indicative only; no responsibility will be accepted by the Corporation for bets placed on their basis.

    Injuries
    In the event of any injury news being announced which can significantly affect the odds, (e.g. Top Goal Scorer/Top Run Scorer) the Corporation reserves the right to either void bets, apply the Dead Heat Reduction Rule, or revert bets to the next odds offered after the offer has been revised due to that injury news. This could apply to bets placed between the release of the injury news and the revision of the offer in question.

    Live Betting Rules

    'Live Betting' refers to betting that takes place while an event is in progress.

    The Corporation reserves the right to void any part or all, of any bets, on any event that is not completed (e.g. abandoned, postponed), on which Live Betting is offered.

    Where we have reason to believe that a bet is placed after the outcome of an event is known, we reserve the right to void the bet. Pre-Event betting (non-Live) rules will apply except where otherwise implied by a difference in selections, prices or bets offered. Where a blatant error is made in offering a Point Spread (e.g. The line or spread reads as '-' instead of '+' or vice versa ) on any event on which we are offering Live Betting, we reserve the right to settle bets at the correct Spread at the time at which the bet was placed.

    Please note that in the case of Live Betting, you may not at any time be able to see or otherwise be provided with the most up-to-date information in relation to the relevant event for reasons outside of our control, including for example (but without limitation) a slow connection or equipment, or other system flaws, faults, errors or service interruption. The Corporation shall not be liable for any delay in relaying up-to-date information.

    Also, when placing a Live bet, a built-in delay is added at the time of bet confirmation. This delay ensures player fairness by mitigating any potential differences with individual Internet connection speeds or varying broadcast delays of the event.

    Rounding
    Normal mathematical rounding (round up for a half cent or more and round down if less than a half cent) is used to present numbers that are more than two decimal places long. To avoid potential rounding issues, odds and winnings are calculated out to 12 decimal places.

    Limits/Maximum Payouts

    All bets are subject to a maximum payment to any one Player in any one calendar day (Pacific Time), irrespective of wagers, odds or number of winning selections as listed below. A bet is accepted on the basis that it is the investment of one Player. The onus of responsibility rests firmly with the Player to stay within the limits outlined below. Maximum bet limits may vary on an individual basis, and by sport, league, and/or selection.

    Maximum payout values are set for each sport (below) and are stated in CAD($). The Corporation will manage liability by limiting the amount that can be wagered on a given event. Winnings will not be pro-rated, nor will accepted wager amounts be reduced after a bet is placed, except in the instance of a Dead Heat Reduction and/or if the Non-Starter Deduction Rule is applied, or other circumstances as otherwise stated in the Rules. The maximum amount that could potentially be won at the time the wager was placed will always be shown on the bet slip when placing the bet.

    The Corporation has the right at its discretion to "delay" or "withhold" during an investigation of a payout.

    As well, The Corporation reserves the right to limit the number of picks in a parlay for the purposes of liability management.

    North American sports
    The maximum that can be won on any Hockey/ Football / Basketball / Baseball bet is $100,000.

    Unless otherwise stated, listed pitchers must start for bets to stand.

    If a game does not start on the day of the officially listed start time, as announced by the relevant league's governing body (i.e. mlb.com), then all bets are void. The day of the event will be considered the day according to the time zone in which the game was to be played.

    Money Line (Side, Game Result) betting:
    Winners and non-winners for betting are official after five innings of play (or 4 1/2 innings if the home team is leading). If a game is called, the winner is determined by the score after the last full inning (unless the home team score a run to tie, or takes the lead in the bottom half of the inning, in which case the winner is determined by the score at the time the game is suspended). If the game is suspended and continued to a conclusion within a 24 hour period of the official suspend time, the game will then be settled according to this result and all bets will be deemed to have action.

All first half bets (five innings) must list both pitchers. If either listed pitcher does not start, wagers on the first half (five innings) will be voided.

    Exhibition/Pre-season baseball:
    Winners and non-winners for betting are official after five innings of play (or four and a half innings if the home team is leading).

It will also apply should a team be leading by 15 or more runs after the opposing team has batted in at least the fifth inning. In the event of either of the above circumstances (or any other designated Mercy Rule run lead) arising all bets on the event (including Live Betting bet), will stand.

    Both players must complete at least 2 two legal moves each. Otherwise, all bets will be voided.

    We won't consider results changed by a regulatory body, more than 6 hours after the end of the game.

    Overview of specific markets
    Game betting: This is the final result of an individual match. Three results are possible: Win/draw/lose.

    Match betting: This bet is the result of the sum of the results of several games. Winning each game counts as 1 point, the draw is worth 0.5 points and losing is worth no points.

    Handicap game betting: The winner of this bet will be the player with more points after the addition of the handicap to one side (and only one side).

    Example: Player A -0.5 -v- Player B +0.5

    Player A wins the handicap if he wins. Player B wins the handicap if he wins or draws.

    Handicap match betting: Same as handicap game betting, but applies in a match.

    Number of moves (total or odd/even): the number of moves in a game is considered to be the number of valid moves made by the player who manages white pieces.

    White/black piece moved on xth move: If the move is a castle, the winner of this bet will be "king". If the xth move is not played because the game finished before, the bet on this market will be voided.

    Live Betting:
    All markets are subject to their respective pre match rules for purpose of Live Betting. Where a handicap or total points 'tie' price is offered, the push rule does not apply. When scores are displayed for Live Betting, every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the score and game time, however no liability is accepted for incorrect information displayed.

    Where the result of a match is a draw - all bets placed after the last move will be void.

    Cricket Rules

    Team Total Runs
    If a team's innings in a test match or county championship match lasts less than sixty overs due to external factors then wagers on this bet will be void. This does not apply if the innings has reached its natural conclusion (e.g. due to a bowl out or declaration).
    For limited overs matches, this bet will be settled on the final score achieved by the batting side including any extras or penalty runs awarded during the innings. Should there be a reduction in the scheduled overs then settlement will still apply provided the reduction is no more than 10% of the entire innings allocation at the time the bet was struck, including any overs the team has already faced. Should the reduction be greater than 10% then all bets shall be void regardless of the final total made by the team. If a team is due to face less than 10 overs, then all bets will be void should there be any reduction in overs whatsoever.

    If the match is tied and the official competition rules do not determine a winner, dead heat rules will apply to bets on the Futures result unless the outcome is settled by a bowl off or super over, in which case the result of the bowl off or super over will stand for match betting. If the competition rules determine the winner by a toss of a coin or drawing of lots, then bets will be void.

Even if three or more contestants take part such a play-off has the sole purpose of deciding the winner of the tournament and the relative finishing positions of unsuccessful contestants is not affected.
    For Win/Place bets Dead Heat rules apply. For example, if Win/Place terms offered for a tournament are for the first 4 places, the 3 players tying for third place will be deemed to have dead-heated for third, fourth and fifth place with 1/3 wager lost and 2/3 wager settled at full place odds for each way bets on those players.
    In a DEAD HEAT the wager money on a selection is divided by the number of Starters involved in the dead heat. The full odds are then paid to the divided wager with the remainder of the wager money being lost.
    If a revised tournament Futures betting includes players who have completed their round and the tournament winner is presented with the trophy after the rest of the field have completed that round, bets placed on those players will be deemed void, provided another round is not fully completed.

If both players miss the cut, then the one with the lowest score will be deemed the winner. If a player withdraws or is disqualified after making the cut, when his opponent has already missed the cut, the disqualified player is deemed the winner. If a player withdraws or is disqualified before the cut is made the other player is deemed the winner.
    In the event of a tie dead heat rules apply. In tournament match betting in the event of a tie wagers are refunded.
    In the event of a listed player being withdraws prior to the first round then the Non-Starter Deduction Rule will apply.

    Odds for a tie are offered in 2 ball betting, therefore in the event of a tie bets on both players are non-winners and bets on the tie are winners. Dead heat rules apply in the event of a tie in 3 ball betting.

  • Dead Heats and Dead Heat Reduction

    What is a Dead Heat?

    • A dead heat refers to an outcome where two or more competitors are tied for the same winning position (according to terms of your bet). In this instance your bet is settled under the 'dead heat reduction rules' for that event.

    What is a Dead Heat Reduction and how is it calculated?

    • A Dead Heat Reduction is calculated by dividing the wager amount proportionally between the number of winners in the event. So, in a two-way dead heat (two competitors tied for the same final position) for example, your return will be half of what was originally projected.

    Example 1: Dead Heat involving two competitors

    You have wagered $2 Win/Place (total of $4) on 'Golfer F' to win the US Open at odds of 16/1 (17.00). The terms stated in the bet are 'five places at 1/4 of the odds'. The leaderboard looks like this at the end of the tournament:

    Position Golfer Score
    1 Golfer A -8
    2 Golfer B -6
    3 Golfer C -5
    4 Golfer D -4
    5 Dead Heat Golfer E -2
    5 Dead Heat Golfer F -2

    The top four places are undisputed; however there are two competitors level on fifth place. Dead heat rules state that your wager amount should be divided by the number of competitors involved in the dead heat. This means that the example bet above would be settled as follows:

    A Win/Place bet is essentially two bets, a bet on the selection to Win and a bet on the selection to Place. The $2 'Win' part of your bet is NOT a winner, as Golfer A won the tournament. The wager amount for the 'Place' part of your bet is also $2 - but in this case IS a winning bet as Golfer F finished in the top five places (although tied with Golfer E).

    Place Terms: Odds divided by Places = 16/1 divided by 4 = 4/1 (5.00)
    Dead Heat: Two players divided by one place = a dead heat of 2
    Wager Amount: Wager divided by # of competitors in Dead Heat = $2.00 is reduced to $1.00
    Total Win: Reduced Wager Amount ($1) x Place Terms (5.00) = Total Win = $5.00

    Example 2: Dead heat involving more than two competitors

    Following from the above example, a different situation occurs if the leaderboard finished like this:

    Position Golfer Score
    1 Golfer A -8
    2 Dead Heat Golfer B -6
    2 Dead Heat Golfer C -6
    2 Dead Heat Golfer D -6
    2 Dead Heat Golfer E -6
    2 Dead Heat Golfer F -6
    2 Dead Heat Golfer G -6

    In this situation, six players are tied for second, however Win/Place terms on this bet are to five places (and there are seven players filling these places). Settling this bet is a little more complex.

    All bets on Golfer A are 'Winners' and not affected by any dead heat. This leaves six more competitors that must be distributed across four places (or winning positions). This means that the dead heat terms are six divided by four.

    As an example, we'll use $2 Win/Place bet on Golfer F to win at 16/1. The calculation is similar to the first example (it's easier to explain if we work out the dead heat terms first, in this instance).

    Place Terms: 16/1 (17.0) divided by four = 4/1 (5.00)
    Dead Heat: Six players divided by four places = 1.5
    Wager Amount: Wager divided by # of competitors in Dead Heat = $2.00/1.5=1.33
    $2.00 stake is reduced to $1.33
    Total Win: Reduced Stake ($1.33) x Place Terms (5.00) = $6.65

  • Single Bets

    Bets designated as a 'Single' can be placed without the requirement of combining with an additional selection. The Criminal Code of Canada currently prohibits single-event betting; however PlayNow.com can offer some "single" bets in as much as those bets are comprised of a parlay embedded within a single bet. For example, a 'Correct Score' bet can be offered as a 'single', as it requires the prediction of the correct score of BOTH teams (or players) in order to successfully win the bet. All Single bets are highlighted with a S icon next to the offer. Types of bets that are often offered as a single bet include Futures, Correct Score, Scorecast, Wincast and Power Picks.

  • Parlay Bets

    A parlay is a bet that links together two or more individual predictions and is also dependent on all of those predictions being correct in order to have a winning bet. Parlaying picks is a great way to increase the amount of potential return of your sports bet but is also mandatory in Canada according to the Criminal Code.

    Below is the list of available parlays:

    • Double
    • Treble
    • 4-Fold to 20-Fold
  • Full cover bets

    As an extension of parlay betting, Full Cover bets include all possible combinations of parlays available. Full Cover Bets may also include single bets (when available).

    Below is the list of available Full Cover bets:

    • Trixie
    • Patent
    • Yankee
    • Canadian
    • Heinz
    • Super Heinz

  • Power Picks

    A 'Power Pick' is a great way to make a quick parlay bet in a single click - AND get a higher payout if you win! A 'Power Pick' is a single bet featuring multiple outcomes and an increased odds value then creating your own parlay. A Power Pick CANNOT be parlayed with any other bet. All event results within the Power Pick must be correct (as specified in the terms posted) for a winning bet. The cut-off time for placing a Power Pick bet typically corresponds to the start time of the Event that starts first within the Power Pick. Any Power Pick (or parlay bet advertised with enhanced odds) that is comprised of an event that is not completed (e.g. abandoned, postponed) will be Void. As with all bets, Power Picks are subject to change or removal without prior notice.

  • Win/Place bets

    A Win/Place bet (or sometimes known as an 'Each Way' bet) is basically two bets; one bet for your Pick to win, the other for your Pick to 'place' (finish in 2nd - or as many places as specified in your bet). The 'place' part of the bet is essentially a backup bet. You will receive a return on your bet if your Pick wins but also if it places. The place part of the bet will always be a fraction of the odds you have taken, usually 1/4 or 1/5. Terms for each Win/Place bet may vary and are always listed with the offer.

    When betting Win/Place with Golf 'Outright Winner (Must Finish under Par)', selected golfer must finish Under Par for bet to be a potential winner.

    For example, a Golf Tournament may feature the Win/Place terms as a quarter the odds for Four Places which is written as:

    These terms mean your bet can win be a winner to if your selection finishes within the first four places (first, second, third and fourth) at a quarter of the odds (divide the winning odds by 4).

    If the Golfer you have selected wins the tournament, you get returns for that player winning and also for placing. If the golfer finishes 2nd, 3rd or 4th then you get returns for the 'place' part only - your 'win' portion of the bet is not a winner.

  • How to place a live bet

    PlayNow.com now offers Live Betting which means you can now bet on events while the game is in progress. Due to the fast pace of Live Betting, Live odds are dynamically changing throughout the course of event according to the action in the game. As odds change, they will either temporarily change to a GREEN colour as odds increase (drift) and RED when odds decrease (shorten).

    Typically when there has been a significant change in a game (e.g. A goal has been scored) some (or all) selections will be 'Suspended' temporarily until the revised odds can be posted. A suspended selection will be signified by the words 'suspended' appearing above the selection and betting on this selection will not be possible until the suspended notice is removed.

    You can view all live betting events by clicking 'Live Betting' from the navigation at the top of the page. This will display the full range of available Live events.

    All Live events are grouped by sport and league and then displayed according to the most recent start time.

    On the Live Event page, you can follow along with the Live scoreboard (for most sports) while you choose the selections and make your picks.

    To view all events that will be offered later today or tomorrow, click the 'Upcoming' tab.
    For added convenience, you may also choose to navigate the available Live Events using the side bar on the right hand side of the Live Home page, especially convenient when making multiple picks when creating parlays.

    When you add a pick to your bet slip that is part of a 'Live Event', there is a green indicator in the bet slip to indicate this.

All-in Play

All-in play means bets having odds reflecting that the competitor may not play or take part in the event. If the Selection does not play or take part in the event, the bet stands as a non-winner.

American Odds

Also sometimes referred to as "Money Line Odds". American odds reveal the amount you must wager or can win on any selection based on $100 increment. If the odds offered on a particular event result are -110, it means that in order to 'win' $100 you would need to bet $110. If the odds are +110, it means that if you wagered $100, you would win $110. In this example you would calculate your payout by also adding your initial stake (wager).

Ante Post

Dead Heat

A Dead Heat refers to an outcome where two or more competitors are tied for the same winning position (according to terms of your bet). In this instance your bet is settled under the 'dead heat reduction rules' for that event.

Dead Heat Reduction Rule

A Dead Heat Reduction is calculated by dividing the wager amount proportionally between the number of winners in the event. So, in a two-way dead heat (2 winners) for example, your return will be half of what was originally projected.

Decimal Odds

The odds expressed as a decimal number. Total odds are determined by multiplying the value (odds) of each selection, and then multiplying by the wager amount. Example: With decimal odds for a two event parlay with 2.50 for one selection, 2.00 for another selection and wager amount of $10, this bet would return $50.

Double

A Double (parlay) is one bet on 2 picks in different events. Both picks in a Double must be correct for a winning bet. (Similar to Sports Action Combo Play -Go for 2).

Double Chance

A "Double Chance" bet requires choosing one of the three selections offered. Each Double Chance selection covers two out of the three possible outcomes (Home win or Draw; Home win or Visitor win; Draw or Visitor win). With a Double Chance bet, you are hedging your bet by betting on TWO of the three possible outcomes in one bet.

Double Result

Also known as "Half Time/Full Time" as it pertains to Soccer betting, this bet requires the prediction of the outcome at half time AND at full time (end of 90 minutes). Double Result rules vary based on sport. Refer to the specific sports rules for full details regarding settlement.
For Soccer - Pick the team to be winning at Half-Time (or tie) AND the result after 90 Minutes.
For Hockey betting- Pick the result at the end of the first period combined with the result at the end of regulation (60 minutes).
For Football and Basketball betting- Pick the team to be winning at Half-Time (or tie) AND the team to win the game at the end of regulation (or the tie).

Forecast

A straight forecast is a bet on two selections to finish first and second in a particular order.

Fractional Odds

Fractional odds: Display is shown as a fraction, where numerator represents amount to win from wager amount shown in denominator.
For example: Odds of 1/3 mean that bettor wins $1 for each $3 staked (thus equal to 1.333... in decimal format), and 2/1 mean that bettor wins $2 for each unit staked (thus equal 3.00 in decimal format). So, with a stake of $100, profit on first bet is $33.33, and on the second bet, profit is $200. Profit is calculated as: wager amount multiplied by the fractional odds.

Full Cover Bet

A Full Cover Bet is a bet which consists of various combinations of parlays available from all picks on the bet slip (e.g. Trixie, Patent, Yankee, etc.).

Half Time/Full Time

Also known as "Double Result". A bet placed on the result at BOTH half time and full time. For soccer matches, it includes a total of 9 outcomes, as compared to 3 outcomes in standard Match betting. Subsequently, odds are significantly higher, especially for outcomes with one team to win at half time and other team to win at full time.
There is often confusion with "Half Time/Full Time" and with the bet "Team to Win Both Halves". For example, if the result of the match Vancouver vs. Portland was 4-0 at half-time and 5-2 at full time, the bet "Vancouver Half Time/Vancouver Full Time" would be a winner; however, the bet "Vancouver to Win Both Halves" would not be a winner, as the result of second half was 1-2 in Portland’s favour.

Heinz

A Heinz consists of 57 bets on 6 picks in different events (15 Doubles, 20 Trebles, fifteen 4-Folds, six 5-Folds and one 6-Folds). Two or more picks must be correct for a winning bet.

The first goalscorer part of the bet is governed by the same rules as first goalscorer single bets - own goals do not count and if your player either comes on before the first goal is scored or goes off without scoring, the entire bet is deemed as a non-winner.

    What does this error mean?

    You must have at least TWO picks to place the bet.

    PlayNow.com is unable to offer single-event betting because it is currently prohibited by The Criminal Code of Canada.

    PlayNow.com can offer some "single" bets in as much as those bets are comprised of a parlay embedded within a single bet.

All Single bets are highlighted with an icon next to the offer. Types of bets that are often offered as a single bet include Futures (Outrights), Correct Score, Scorecast, Wincast and Power Picks.

  • Two or more picks are correlated and/or are from the same event and cannot be combined in a bet.

    What does this error mean?

    You are not allowed to combine two (or more) picks that are considered related and/or come from the same event. PlayNow does not accept bets where the outcome of one event contributes wholly or partly to the outcome of another.

  • A pick on the bet slip has been suspended and is no longer available.

    What does this error mean?
