Mise-o-jeu Rules

Mise-o-jeu General Rules  |  Mise-o-jeu Specific Rules


Mise-o-jeu is governed by the BY-LAW RESPECTING FORECAST CONTESTS AND NUMBERS GAMES which includes limitation of liability.

I) General Rules, applicable at any time as long as they are not modified by the specific rules applicable to certain types of events (section II).

SELECTIONS

1. For each selection, make your predictions by answering a maximum of 8 questions contained in the Mise-o-jeu Betting offer in force. Each question concerns the performance of individuals, teams or other contingencies related to sports or other events. For the purposes of these rules, "event" means any event or part of an event (e.g., a period of a hockey match, first half of a football match), as determined by Loto-Québec and being the subject of a question.

2. In order for a selection to be a winning selection, and subject to the following, at least one prediction of the selection must relate to a completed event as defined below, and all of your predictions on "completed" events must be accurate according to Loto-Québec's Official Results. If no event referred to by a selection is "completed", the selection is void and the participant is only entitled to a refund of the amount wagered on that selection.

Moreover, a prediction may be accurate only if at least two individuals or teams concerned by a single question have taken part in their respective "completed" event, failing which that prediction is void and cannot be a part of a winning selection. In cases where this condition is met but where one or several individuals or teams referred to by such prediction do not take part in their respective "completed" event in accordance with the specific rules stated below, only the predictions on such individual(s) or team(s) shall be considered void and cannot be a part of a winning selection.

An individual who takes part in an event for another team than the one he is associated with is deemed not to have taken part in the event referred to in the question. Moreover, whenever a question concerns the performance of an individual during several events, that individual must take part in at least one event for the team with which he is associated.

For questions related to opposing individuals who should take part in a same event consisting of only one match, where the two individuals don't face each other during a same event consisting of only one match, any prediction on such individuals is considered void and cannot be a part of a winning selection.

3. For the purposes of these rules, an event is "completed" in all cases where a result or final score or a score that is considered final is determined as such by the authorities in charge of the event in question and Loto-Québec issue an official result for that event. All other event is deemed to be not completed and a prediction on such event is void and cannot be a part of a winning selection.

However, and subject to the specific cases provided below, an event will be deemed to be not completed in case of a delay, rescheduling or any other similar circumstance rendering impossible by Loto-Québec the determination of a result within seven (7) days following the date on which this event was to end. However, and subject to the rules of the "Total" and "Action performed during a match" sections as well as the specific rules stated below, for the sports listed below, in case of an event taking place on a maximum of one day, this event will be deemed not completed if:

  • in hockey, basketball, football and rugby: no final result is issued at 7 a.m. two days after the date indicated in the Mise-o-jeu Betting offer; 
  • in baseball : no final result is issued at 7 a.m. the day after the date indicated in the Mise-o-jeu Betting offer;
  • in soccer: no final result is issued at 7 a.m. two days after the date indicated in the Mise-o-jeu Betting offer. However, the results or final score resulting of a disciplinary sanction are not considered as a final result for the purposes of these rules. In such a case, the event will be deemed to be not completed and any prediction on such event is void and cannot be a part of a winning selection;
  • in fighting and E-Sports events: no final result is issued at 12 p.m. the day after the date indicated in the Mise-o-jeu Betting offer.

Any prediction on such event deemed to be non completed is void and cannot be a part of a winning selection.

4. Where a question relates specifically to a part of an event (e.g., the 2nd period of a hockey match, the first five innings of a baseball match, the first half of a football game, or a portion of a non-sport event), the outcome of the question is determined solely by what occurs during that part of the event, without considering what happens in the remainder of the event.

5. Unless otherwise indicated, the continuation of a suspended event started on a previous date is never part of the daily Mise-o-jeu Betting offer.

SPREADS

6. For questions with spreads, Loto-Québec sets out in the Mise-o-jeu Betting offer a number (the spread) used to determine by how many goals (points, strokes or other) a team or individual must beat his opponent for a prediction to be accurate. The favourite of an event is indicated by a negative (-) sign in front of the spread and the underdog, by a positive (+) sign. The favourite is deemed to be the winner if he wins the event by a margin that is greater than the spread. For example, in a match Montréal vs. Boston and where the spread attributed is 1.5 and for which Montréal is named the favourite (by a negative sign), Montréal must win by two goals or more. Furthermore, Boston is deemed to be the winner if: (1) Montréal wins the match by one goal, (2) the match is a tie, or (3) Boston wins the match.

TOTAL

7. For questions related to the total number of goals (or points, hits, rebounds or other) during one or several events that are specified in the question, Loto-Québec sets out a number of goals in the Mise-o-jeu Betting offer. Loto-Québec then determines the outcome of these questions based on whether total number of goals scored during the event or the events concerned is greater (+) or lesser ( - ) than the indicated number.

Where an event is interrupted and considered non completed in accordance with these rules, if the total number of goals (or points, hits, rebounds or other) made at the moment of the interruption is greater than the total indicated in the Mise-o-jeu Betting offer, the event will be deemed to be completed regarding these questions and the result or score at the moment of the interruption will be considered final for the purposes of the determination of the results by Loto-Quebec.

ACTION PERFORMED DURING A MATCH

8. For questions asking if "Yes" or "No" an individual or team will perform, during an event, the action(s) referred to in the question (e.g., score a goal, make a touchdown or other) and for questions asking which individual or team will perform, during an event, the action referred to in the question (e.g., first goal, first touchdown or other), where the event is interrupted and considered non completed in accordance with these rules, if, at the moment of the interruption, the answer to the question is "Yes" or if the action has been performed, the event will be deemed to be completed regarding these questions and the result or score at the moment of the interruption will be considered final for the purposes of the determination of the results by Loto-Quebec.

DEAD HEAT RULE

9. Unless otherwise specified, the Dead heat rule applies when a question's outcome constitutes a tie between two or more individuals or teams and such an outcome is not offered for said question. In such case, the odds indicated in the Mise-o-jeu Betting offer regarding those individuals or teams will be divided by the number of individuals or teams tied, the resulting odds not being less than 1.00.

10. However, if a question's outcome constitutes a tie between all the individuals or teams having taken part in their "completed" event, any prediction relating to the question are considered void and cannot be a part of a winning selection.

OTHER GENERAL PROVISIONS

11. Dates and times specified in the Mise-o-jeu Betting offer in connection with a question indicate the time limit by which a prediction on this question can be registered ("the time limit").

12. If a match (including a part of a match) or a non-sport event referred to by a question starts before the time limit or if a result associated with a question is announced or known before the time limit, only the predictions regarding that match or that event, registered before the actual beginning of the match or before the announcement or knowledge of the result are valid.

13. The prize to be won for a winning selection is equal to the product of the odds indicated in the Mise-o-jeu Betting offer (subject to the application of the "Dead heat rule") with respect to accurate participant predictions, multiplied by the amount wagered (e.g., 1st odds X 2nd odds X wager).

However, Loto-Québec reserves the right to limit to $2,000,000, at any time, the prize amount payable for each winning selection. In such case, if there is more than one winner for the same winning selection, the prize to win for each of them is determined in proportion to the amounts wagered on the winning selection.

14. Loto-Québec may, at any time and at its discretion, modify the odds of the betting offer. The odds applicable at the time of the transaction take precedence over any other odds previously associated with any of your predictions. For the purposes of these rules, "transaction" means a transaction made at a Loto-Québec retailer or online, leading to the registration of a selection in the central computer system.

15. The results are determined by Loto-Québec in accordance with the present rules, and at a time of its own choice. Loto-Québec does not recognise protest(s), overturned decisions or amended results after it has entered the final result of the event into the on-line system.

16. Loto-Québec may, at its discretion and at any time, refuse to accept bets and to perform a transaction bearing any selection or any question which it may determine.

17. Check all your selections information. ONLY SELECTIONS REGISTERED IN THE CENTRAL COMPUTER SYSTEM PARTICIPATE IN THE GAME.

18. A selection registered as part of a transaction made at a Loto-Québec retailer can be cancelled only within thirty (30) minutes of its registration, but never after the first time limit pertaining to the selection or never after midnight the day of its registration. A selection registered as part of a transaction made online or by means of a mobile device, such as a smart phone or a tablet computer, cannot be cancelled.

19. Mise-o-jeu is in no way authorized, sanctioned or sponsored by a sports league or any of its teams, nor by any player, athlete, personality or other person or entity connected thereto.
