How to Play (Click here to download the How to Play brochure. You will need Adobe Acrobat to view this file)
A parlay is a single wager that links multiple wagers; to win the bet, the player must win all the wagers in the parlay. If the player loses one wager, he loses the entire bet. However, if the player wins all the wagers in the parlay, he wins a higher payoff than if he had placed the wagers separately.
On Parlay Cards the odds are fixed. The minimum wager is $2. Please see the Parlay Cards for more information.
Parlay cards are available at all Sports Lottery locations on Wednesdays.
The lines for each week's coming games are posted every Monday at the Sportsbooks and Sports Lottery Retailers. Off-the-Board Parlay wagers may be made all week long (at Sportsbook locations only).
Parlay cards must be completed with a blue/black pen or a pencil. No red ink, please. Remove the perforated stub from the card prior to presenting to the sports terminal operator.
Wagers are accepted until the kickoff of a scheduled game. Tickets go as written. Please check your ticket(s) for accuracy before leaving the Lottery terminal.
NEW FOR 2013
Totals (Over/Under) Wager - The Total is the combined amount of points scored by both teams during the game, including overtime. A player may wager Over or Under the total. In an Over wager, the player wagers that the total combined points scored by the two teams will be more than the total. In an Under wager, the player bets that the total points scored by the two teams will be less than the total. There will be no totals during the preseason.
The Half-Point, Teaser and Super Teaser Parlay Cards will carry all totals. The $100,000 Parlay Card will have select totals on occasion. There is not a Totals-Only Card.
"For" includes the amount wagered.
"To" does not include the amount wagered.
For example: 20 for 1 is 19 to 1;
a $25 wager is: $25x19=$475.
Parlay Payoffs (PDF's - you will need Adobe Acrobat to view these files)
- Early Bird Card (Early bird cards are the only card available during preseason.)
Early Bird Parlay Cards may be played daily throughout the preseason and on Mondays and Tuesdays during the regular season. To play Early Bird Cards, refer to the designated separate sheet for teams and point spreads. A new sheet will be available each Monday and Tuesday. The payoffs are the same as the Half-Point Card. *Click here for the most current sheet.
The Half-Point Parlay card is the most popular type of card in Las Vegas and will offer payoffs ranging from 6.5 for 1 on a three-team parlay to 2,500 for 1 on a 12-team parlay. All point spreads use half points, eliminating the possibility of a tie.
On a Teaser Card, the point spreads differ from those on the Half-Point card. The favored teams have to cover fewer points in order to be winning selections. The underdog teams receive more points. The payoffs on the Teaser Card are lower than they are on the Half-Point card because of the advantage the player gets on the point spread. On a Teaser Card, players may parlay from 3 to 20 teams and receive payoffs ranging from 13 for 5 to 1,000 for 1. All point spreads use half points, eliminating the possibility of a tie.
On the Super Teaser Card, the point spreads are adjusted even more so than the Teaser Card. The favored teams have to cover even fewer points in order to be winning selections. The underdog teams receive more points. The payoffs on the Super Teaser Card are lower than they are on the Teaser Cards because of the additional advantage the player gets on the point spread. On a Super Teaser Card, players may parlay from 4 to 20 teams and receive payoffs ranging from 11 for 5 to 80 for 1. All point spreads use half points, eliminating the possibility of a tie.
On the Reverse Teaser Card, the point spreads are adjusted so the favored teams must cover a larger point spread and underdog teams must cover a point spread that is smaller, and, in some cases, even minus points. In some cases both teams in a game may be minus points and you may not bet both teams in that game. Because of these point spread adjustments, the payoffs are much higher than those found on the other teaser cards. On a Reverse Teaser Card, players may parlay from 3 to 8 teams and receive payoffs ranging from 20 for 1 to 5,000 for 1. All point spreads use half points, eliminating the possibility of a tie.
- $100,000 Parlay Card
Players wager $5 and select 15 games against the point spread. If a player correctly picks 15 out of 15 games, he wins $100,000. If there is more than 1 winning ticket, the $100,000 prize is divided equally among the winning tickets. The $100,000 Parlay Card will have a few select Totals (Over/Under) Wagers upon occasion.
Pro Football Championship Futures
Note: The Delaware Lottery reserves the right to refuse any wager/multiple cards or delete or limit any selection(s) prior to the acceptance of any wager.
No card required. This wager is available during preseason (a new sheet will be provided each Monday). Players may wager on any or all of the 32 pro football teams to win the Championship Game. This wager is offered for the entire current season. To place a bet, the player simply selects a team. The odds fluctuate during the season, but are locked in at the time the wager is placed. For a team to win the Championship Game, it must win three games: at least two playoff games and the Championship game. A new sheet is provided each week during the regular season.
The following wagers are available only at the Racetracks:
In Off-the-Board Parlays, the point spreads may fluctuate from the opening line. Players can parlay from three to eight teams and receive payoffs ranging from 6 to 1 to 160 to 1. There is a $5 minimum bet on Off-the-Board Parlays.
The players can select 6, 6 1/2, 7 and 10-point Teasers. A Teaser allows the player to add extra points to an underdog’s point spread or subtract points on a favored team.
For halftime wagers, point spreads apply to the final score of the game and not to second half scoring alone.

*Delaware Lottery Sportsbook and Sports Lottery Retailer Wagering Rules apply to parlay cards unless otherwise stipulated on the cards. The Delaware Lottery reserves the right to add, delete, or change its Wagering Rules and/or payoff odds at any time.
