How to play Sports Select lottery in Canada

Sports Select is a wonderful sports betting game played like lottery games brought forward by Western Canada Lottery Corporation. There are various sports game tickets you can buy at any Lottery retailer near you and wager on. The cost of tickets varies according to the game you choose.

The games are Pro Over Line Under, Pools, Props and Point Spread games.  Each has different set of games and different wagers.

  • In Pro Over Line Under you can bet on Football, Baseball or Soccer and the ticket costs range between $2- $100. In this game selection it’s not who wins or loses – it’s the total number of points that counts. Predict whether the total score of the game will be over or under the line. If all your picks are correct, you win!
  • The point spread games are also same as Pro Over Line Under games and wager is also same. Your team doesn’t have to win, to win! Predict whether the Favourite will cover the “spread”, or if the Underdog will prevent them from doing so.
  • The Pools offer College Football and Professional Baseball and you can wager $5 on single play. For just $5, you can compete against other sports fans in the West. Predict the outcome of every game on the POOLS Card; get the most correct to win or share the prize pool for that Card.
  • Props offers Baseball, Football and Golf and Hockey games and you can wager from $2 to $100. It’s like a game within the game! Two players go head-to-head in a specific challenge; which one will come out on top is what you have to prop.  If you predict all your picks correctly, you win.

You can wager $5 to play and compete against other sports fans in the West! Predict the outcome of every game on the Pools card – get the most correct to win or share the prize pool. Each card is for a separate sport.

  • Mark the Card Number you want to play – one digit for each vertical line.
  • Mark your Play Type, which determines the cost of your ticket. You can “box” up to four games, to select both Visitor Win (V) and Home Win (H) for those games.

  • Give the completed slip and your wager to the Retailer before the POOLS Card closing date. Check your ticket before leaving the store to make sure it’s what you selected.

If you choose the most correct in your pool, you win! The prize pool for a Card will be shared by all Selections matching the highest number of correct predictions. For example, if 12 games are on a Card, and no player correctly predicted all 12, the prize pool is shared by all Selections matching 11. If nobody correctly predicted either 12 or 11, the prize pool goes to all Selections matching 10 – and so on. There are no subsidiary prizes.

The total number of winners and the prize pool value for a POOLS Card will be printed on the next Card for that sport, on all tickets purchased for that next Card’s pool, on the POOLS Game List page and the POOLS Results page.
