Proline Stadium is the blanket term for the sports betting lottery games offered by the Atlantic Lottery Corporation. The sports betting options offered under the Proline Stadium name by the ALC include Proline, Proline Fantasy, Proline Futures and Stadium Bets.
On this page I’m going to outline how to bet on each of the Proline Stadium betting options and follow it up with a breakdown of the typical Proline Stadium odds and other differences between Proline Stadium and our recommended online betting sites.
How It Works
If you want to bet on Proline Stadium you can either head to your local ALC retailer and fill out a selection slip to receive your betting ticket or create an account at the Proline Stadium website, make a deposit and place your bets online similar to how you would at one of the sportsbooks I recommend.
Each of the bets offered through Proline Stadium is different so I’ve broken them down below.
The Proline option at Proline Stadium is very similar to that of the other Proline options with a few major differences. The V, T, and H mean different things than other Prolines. For example, with Proline Stadium hockey games are considered to be over after 60 minutes of play. If the game is tied after regulation only the T selection is a winner. Stadium Bets is the version that includes overtime and shootouts in hockey. I suggest you understand the tie rules for every sport before betting on Proline Stadium.
Proline Stadium also offers a lot of player vs player prop bets that you can include on your ticket. For example I’m seeing a Joe Burrow over/under of 272.5 passing yards while I’m writing this.
Proline fantasy requires that you make between 2 and 5 picks on a parlay ticket. The difference is that you are picking between pools of players. Each group is made up of between 3 and 4 players and you choose which player will have the best statistical night.
Click here to see the fantasy scoring for the various sports. As an example, in hockey goals (worth 2), assists (worth 1) and plus/minus are counted towards a players stats for the night.
In the event that two players from the group end up leading with the same number of points the odds associated with the player that you chose will be divided by 2 and applied to the parlay bet.
The Proline Futures bets work in the same way as the would at a regular online betting site. The easiest example here would be betting on which team will win the Stanley Cup in hockey. You can make this bet at any time throughout the season and you are able to cash the bet if your team does lift Lord Stanleys Mug at the end of the playoffs.
It’s great for Proline Stadium to offer futures bets, but you would still likely receive better odds through an online betting site.
Stadium Bets is basically the same as Proline except there are no ties. In hockey both overtime and shootouts are included when determining an outcome. Stadium Bets also offer spreads on the games, as well as the regular over/under totals that you will find with Proline.
Odds – Proline Stadium vs Online Betting Sites
Proline Stadium has updated to dynamic odds, which allows them to offer odds that are comparable to odds you would see at online sportsbooks. The odds are not static, so they will change throughout the day based on the lines provided by their odds provider. This is a positive change and it lessens my main issue with Proline Stadium, which was that their odds were far worse than online betting sites.
**The odds are still worse, but not as significantly as the previous iteration.
The dynamic odds do pose an issue for anyone who likes to buy their ticket at a retail store. The odds of your selections may change before you can pay for your ticket.
The odds for the the Fantasy parlay’s are still very poor, so I would advise against playing that option with Proline Stadium.
Even with the improved odds there are still other major disadvantage to betting with Proline Stadium rather than through one of our recommended betting sites, which I will get into below.
Disadvantages of Proline Stadium
Proline Stadium has a couple distinct disadvantages when compared with betting online.
Proline Stadium has significantly fewer bet offerings than SportsInteraction.com or any of our other recommended betting sites for Canadians. Proline Stadium takes bets on major leagues such as the NFL, NHL, NBA, and MLB, but if you’re looking to bet on less main stream events you will not be able to find betting lines in the Proline Stadium products.
Even with the recent updates, Proline Stadium is still a very antiquated betting site that has none of the bells and whistles you will find at a reputable online sportsbook. Betting line variety, cash-out options, loyalty rewards, live betting, and more cannot be found at Proline Stadium.
Even though Proline Stadium has a sportsbook that allows you to place your bets online they don’t provide any sign up bonuses or other promotions for their players.
Online sportsbooks, on the other hand, work hard to entice new players to try out their site. They also work hard on player retention by offering great promotions and loyalty programs for current sign ups. Simply put, online sportsbooks work hard to ensure that you have an enjoyable betting experience.
