    Provincial governments operate their own 3 game/prop minimum parlays that are set serviced by a line service companies out of vegas. Due to Criminal Code of Canada, thats what we are stuck with. There is a 2 team parlay option in Ontario at even odds but fuk that. Ontario will take zero risk. Line moves 2 points in Vegas, they pull the game off the board , dont adjust the line just kill the game.

    If a particular combination of games puts the Gaming Commission at risk of hitting their $5 million max(all tickets) or $600,000 single ticket max they will not print the ticket. Max a person can wager in a day is $100. If you had 2 $100 tickets from the same day that payed say $50000 and $30000 each which means you need to cash them at the Toronto office because a store can only pay $990, you had best hope you printed the 50k ticket first because the second ticket is in violation of the max spend rule and will be seized & not honored for payment. Tickets that big, they will likely request the stores surveillance video to ensure other customers were not "delayed" in any way.

    I have zero love for the government run casinos/sports lotto monopoly and dont touch they absolute shit odds. I have asked numerous times why the odds are so low and their response is "We have no one to answer to and do not intend on changing our operation anytime soon" Canada needs to lobby the Part of the Criminal Code against single event wagering. Times have changed since that law was written

    I would be interested in something similar, but being US resident, should be in the US, or no matter where, if you can work from home, lol.
