Sports Betting FAQ
Can I still place a Sports Betting wager?
Sports Betting is available during the Pro Football Season Only. Sports Betting windows are located on Club 1.
Can you tell me the current line on a specific game?
Federal laws do not permit us to give odds over the telephone. We have to recommend that guests come in to the Sports Book to review the board odds.
Is there anyway to wager on just one or two games with your ‘total’ options?
No, see BELOW: the rules are specific in that we have to wager on at least three separate games. Example:
1 Seahawks * -7 ½ 2 Packers +7 ½
3 Sea/GB Over 46 ½ 4 Sea/GB Under 46 ½
5 Patriots * -6 ½ 6 Colts + 6 ½
7 NE/IND Over 53 ½ 8 NE/IND Under 53 ½
9 Team Carter – ½ 10 Team Irvin + ½
11 NFC -2 ½ 12 AFC +2 ½
13 NFC/AFC Over 49 ½ 14 NFC/AFC Under 49 ½
In the above example, there are four games but there are 14 total choices in which you could choose up to 7 for a maximum payout of up to a 7 play parlay. Again, you must touch upon at least three separate games. A selection of 1, 3 and 5 would NOT constitute a wager and neither would a selection of 1,3,5,7 because even though there are four selections, the above only involves the outcome of two games. A 3rd and separate game such as a selection on #10 would need to be used to make a 3rd and separate game. A selection of 1,3,5,7,10 if all were correct, would payout on 5 selections but again, only involves, and has to involve, 3 separate games.
Is there a cut off time to make a bet?
You can place a bet up until kickoff, however, if the guest is placing a large bet that must be approved then we recommend that the guest allow a few extra minutes before kick off so they don’t get locked out.
