    Hi everyone!

    I've been lurking for a couple days now trying to get some last minute advice/information. Going on my first ever trip on the 22nd and planning a girls only summer trip. Super excited!

    So glad I found this site :)

    Welcome, and you'll get to bet on hockey (or o-key, if you're from Quebec) when you go.

    You can pick a team straight up and the payout will determine the odds. Say the Jets are +115. You can put $10 on the team and if they win you get 21.50 back...10+11.50. If they are -110 that same $10 win would give you about 19 total back. You can also bet over/under total goals. So If you think combined goals by both teams are going to be more than what the board (in the sports book part of the casino), say 5.5 goals, and you bet the over and the score final is 5-3 (or 8 combined goals) you double your money.

    As a big hockey fan I regularly place bets, then sit at the sports bar and enjoy the game and the wager while I lose my shirt at video poker.
