Hi guys,

In the last 6 years or so, I have cashed more than 10K betting mainly on NFL. Always picking about 6 games on a $5 or $10 ticket.
This was before the option to select Combo to 2`s ,Combo to 3`s and so on.
I admit, I don`t understand it.
Is playing this way a money maker or is it something like insurance, where you still get a small payout even if you don`t get all your games right?
Can someone give me an explanation using the example below?
I`d appreciate it.

Select the favorites straight up for the sake of this example or use the ties or underdogs but include your explanation ...

N.E 1.80   3.40    2.60  Den
CHI 2.00   3.60   2.20  Indy
GB 1.60   4.25   2.90  TB

best way to explain it is say you pick 4 games , so you pick n.e 1.80, chi 2.00, g.b 4.25, and den 2.60, say you combo it to 2 , so say only the packers and pats won, so where you had a combo 2 you would win 4.25 x 1.80 depending on ur bet, so its kinda like insurance in a way , but if ya pick big odds you can profit b only hitting 2 of the 4 of ur games , ya get it. just go read this

The Combo Play option is something that can be chosen if you would like to play additional plays with a smaller # of picks. These smaller plays use the same selections already made on the base transaction, and are placed into all of the possible combinations of the given Combo Play level selected. By doing this, you can still win some money on your ticket, even if every pick is not correct. The chart below tells you the additional amount of transactions that will be added to your ticket given: a) how many events you pick, and b) the combo option(s) chosen. Use this chart as a quick reference to determine how much any ticket with Combo Play will cost:

Combo PlayAdditional ticket price with Combo Play will be:  Multiplier x your Wager 3
events
4
events
5
events
6
events
7
events
8
events
Combo to 2’s  3x6x10x15x21x28xCombo to 3’s   4x10x20x35x56xCombo to 4’s    5x15x35x70xCombo to 5’s     6x21x56xCombo to 6’s      7x28xCombo to 7’s       8x

As an example, let’s say you make picks for 3 events, choose ‘Combo to 2’s’, and select $5 as your wager amount. You can see that under the ‘3 events’ column in the Combo Play table above, you will be adding another 3 transactions for choosing ‘Combo to 2’s’. Your total transactions for this ticket will be: 3 + the 1 base transaction = 4 transactions. The total price of this ticket will be: 4 x $5 = $20. The total ticket price will always appear near the bottom of your printed ticket.

Please be aware that if you choose to purchase Combo Play for your ticket, it is possible to win some money if you do not get all picks correct. If the number of correct picks equals or exceeds a Combo Play level you have selected (e.g. you selected ‘Combo to 2’s’ and got 2 out of 3 picks correct) then your ticket will win you some money. The final prize amount will be dependent upon the combo level(s) chosen, the odds of the correct picks, and your wager amount selected.

Once you have completed the selection slip, give it to the lottery retailer and pay the total amount. In return, you will receive a PRO•LINE ticket. (Note: All plays will be held on one printed ticket, per selection slip submitted, even if Combo Play is selected.)


How To Play PRO•LINE Online

The PRO•LINE game is fundamentally the same online as it is in retail. All of the rules are the same, as are the types of purchases you can make. To see visual detail on how to place a wager online, check out the Wagering Help page.

To place a PRO•LINE wager online via ProlineStadium, follow these steps:

1. Click the selections you would like to play. You can play between 2-8 selections from any of the 3 wager formats (MONEY LINE, SPREAD, or TOTAL). Only one selection per event can be picked, for a given transaction.

2. Decide how much you would like to wager, from $2-$25, per play.

3. Click the “BET CARD” button to bring up the Bet Card. Here you can review your picks, remove picks, change your wager amount, and also add Combo Play if you would like to conveniently play additional smaller combos. See above for more on how Combo Play works. Within the Bet Card, you will also see the “TOTAL COST” you will be charged for this transaction, as well as the amount you could potentially win in the “ALL CORRECT PAYS” row.

heres a way to say it too

say i played a 4 game and combo 2's.
i won 3 of my 4 games so i would win

game A
game B
game C
game D

if i won games a,b,and c i would win this

A x B= whatever both odds are times my bet
A x C= same thing as above
B x C = same thing , so i won 3 times which is defiantly a profit .

its a good thing to do if ya like the thrill of any win , like me .

Couldn't have explained it better. newfieboy nailed it. They are a bit more expensive but you are purchasing insurance, so it can really be worth your while.

Thanks Newfieboy for the great explanation! I did see where it is more expensive when you play Combos but understandable seeing as where you have the chance, at the very least, to make some of your bet back.

I always thought about trying that option considering I always play up to 4 games and last week won $203 on a $3 buck bet which prob means if I would of combo 2 that ticket i would had to pay $12 for my ticket?  and woulda won alot more?  Not to brag at all but i would say on a nightly basis I get 3 out of 4 right which to think about is nothing to brag about cause i dont win lol but I'm thinking alot about starting to do combo 2  what do you guys think about it?

Combo 2s is great when you want to cover a lot of ties.  For instance last night, there was 6/11 NHL games tie, if you were to place 3 simple bets, 4 Ties combo 2s, 4 ties combo 2s and One ticket 3 ties combo 2, you would have essentially made at least 65% of your money back if not 100s more .

 combo's are good if you dont want to go broke and have been consistently been close to winning and want to be rewarded for only getting one or two wrong. combo's are bad because the ticket costs more itself and the payout is less than it would have been with the same wager without the combos. having combo's available grants the gambler a bit more freedom with how they wish to wager their money

Take that and combo that to 2s and combo it to 5s on the same ticket, for a 2$ wager it will come out to a 44$ ticket.. this tickewt is sweet, cause if it hits all 6 u get bank, and then if its just 5/6 right u still will get about 200 bux or so, i ca't do the exact math right now, but combo 2s is the best, then another combo incase youre close..

i always get a 5 pick with combo to 2s.. combo 2s is the best but most expencive.. but its the most holestic approach if u want to make sure to get back all youre Value odds that you've earned.. 

I use to hate getting 5/6 and loosing that value i earned.. GL i hope i helepd busy day xo GL lol

u can increase the wager to 3$ then for the 5/6 combo it would be . 1.8 x 2x 1.6 x 2.6 x 2.2  X 3= which is good for a combo 5to get 100$ back, , but u need that combo to 2s too in case u just get like 3/6 right.. which will pay back doube yore wager (OR THERRE ABOUTS U CAN DO THE MATH)

dont get into spending 120-220$ on a ticket, i got this guy into playing combos and now hes addicted to using it with high wager ,  i hope he wins, well he always gets like 4/6 or 5/6 but u DONT NEED TO SPEND THAT MUCH ON A COMBO, 22-44$ is the most.. u only need a small 2$ wager.. . IMO

anddd, High odds are the best obvioujlsy, I usually look for ties or underdogs for my combos, but that said favroites are fine too as long as u get 80% correct on the night..

Ya goose is right 5 game and a combo 2 or 3 is the way to go if your going to combo cause with nhl the odds are always decent either way like 2.30 or 2.10 then throw in a nba tie or 2 . seems this year there afe alot of nba ties and also ncaab ties are easy to spot. Goose knows i never used to play ties but i have won 6 tickets this week alone all picking ncaab and nba ties. So again gl everyone . happy hunting
