Parlays 101

In the world of sports betting, you must know your parlay slang to be respected. Without respect, your picks are worthless and you’ll be back on in no time. I’m here today to educate you on how to refer to certain parlays. We will start with the smallest and work our way up into the true lotto tickets.

The 1 game pick
• This is not a parlay and I’d highly recommend avoiding this type of bet, regardless of what my partner Señor may tell you. If you’re making a single bet then you should click the X button up top and leave this page immediately.

The 2 game parlay
• The classic 2 game parlay. In parlay circles it’s more commonly referred to as the “Peel-N-Win Ticket”. North of the 49th parallel they are also known as “Safeway Peel-N-Wins” or “The Gail Mcdonald Special”. These are typical bankroll-builders and are the backbone of any parlay obsessed gambler.

The 3 game parlay
• One of my favourite parlays, the 3 gamer is known as the “Scratch-N-Win” or the “$1 Western”. One of the most common parlays out there, and quite possibly the most profitable, the Scratch-N-Win offers great value to gamblers of all shapes and sizes. The only problem with the Scratch-N-Win is once you see what a 3-game parlay pays out, you’ll have trouble not adding in some more picks for bonus cash. Which leads us to….

The 4-6 game parlay
• The parlayers dream. The 4-6 gamer will either have you dancing on cloud 9 making it rain, or waking up in a pool of sweat after a dreadful bad beat. This type of parlay is commonly referred to as the “Little Lotto” or the “Children’s Hospital Sweepstakes”. The payouts for these will usually be notable. You may receive a congratulatory tweet or even a mention from a degenerate gambler on Facebook for a job well done. Although these are harder to win than the Peel or Scratch-N-Wins, I recommend sprinkling these bets throughout your portfolio to ensure maximum profits.

The 7-9 game parlay
• There are plenty of names for this type of parlay. Some of the most common are: the simple “Lotto Ticket”, the “6/49er”, the “Lotto-Max”, and the “Grab Your Passport, Don’t Ask Why” ticket. This ticket is a tough one to bink, but it’s not impossible. With regular usage, this parlay WILL come through for you, albeit usually on your last few dollars. A win on this parlay will blow up your Twitter feed for a few hours and will have old friends coming out of the woodworks asking for a few peel-n-wins for “old times sake”. Just ignore these stragglers and soak up the good times and retweets while they’re there.

The 10+ game parlay
• The Big Daddy Gachio of parlays, binking one of these is one for the ages. Numerous names for this parlay have been thrown out there so I will try to narrow it down to the most commonly used ones. The name I use most is the “Powerball Lotto Ticket”. Others include the “Macau Maker”, the “Set Up An Anonymous Trust Fund Ticket”, and the “Set For Generations Ticket”. Your name and picture will appear frequently in newspapers and tweets for the “luck” you possess. These are generally regarded as a once in a lifetime bink, so you can consider retirement if you’re lucky enough to win one. A 10+ game parlay winner should be kept in total secrecy until you have collected the winnings and put them in a safe and secure location. If not, local degens have been known to scour the neighborhoods in search of the winning Powerball Lotto Ticket. Local degens aside, the celebrations on a 10+ parlay winner usually includes an all-inclusive ticket to Macau with the fellas.

Hopefully you’ve learned enough here to know what I’m talking about in my future posts on parlays.

As always, gamble responsibly.
