Odds of Winning
Atlantic Lottery offers a wide variety of entertaining games that offer a chance to win prizes ranging from a free ticket to millions of dollars. Part of Atlantic Lottery’s mandate for offering our products responsibly is to help players understand the odds of winning our games. The one thing all games have in common is that winning or losing is based on randomness. While the dream of winning is exciting, it’s important to keep in mind what the true chances of winning the top prize are.

The odds for the sports games PRO•LINE, FANTASY, FUTURES and STADIUM BETS fluctuate with the sporting events selected by the player. Players can choose to wager on outcomes with higher odds (underdogs) or lower odds (favorites). They can also choose to wager on more events (up to eight on PRO•LINE) or fewer events (as few as one on FUTURES) per ticket. Choosing more underdogs and playing more events on a ticket will increase the potential payout, but it also means a lower likelihood of winning.
ALC offers a wide variety of video lottery products, each with a unique pay table. The frequency of wins and odds of winning vary by game, but all games are designed to return a specific percentage of wagered dollars back to players over time. The payout percentages for each game are identified by province under the Video Lottery section of the website. The top prize amount is dependent on the amount wagered; however, the maximum prize on any single game play is $500. The average odds of winning the top prize on video lottery games are 1 in 50,664.
