Oregon Sports Betting

In 1989, Oregon allowed some forms of sports wagering by giving the Oregon State Lottery Commission the authority to operate games allowing the public to bet on the outcome of NFL football games. Because the state permitted sports pools before the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act was enacted, the state was exempted from the Act. The Oregon Lottery launched a betting game called “Sports Action” that allowed players to wager on the NFL and NBA in a parlay format that required them to get three picks right to win.

In 2005, the Oregon legislature passed a bill (HB 3466) that banned sports wagering effective 1 July 2007.

In January 2019, the Oregon state legislature introduced H 2288, which requires a percentage of net lottery proceeds from sports betting be applied against unfunded actuarial liability of the Public Employees Retirement System.

In April 2019, the Oregon Lottery Commission approved the lottery’s recommendation to award the state’s sports betting contract to SBTech. Lottery officials expect to start installing sports betting games in the restaurants and retailers that currently sell lottery games by the fall.

In August 2019, sports betting was officially introduced at Chinook Winds Casino. The Oregon Lottery hoped to roll out its sports betting app in time for the start of the 2019 football season, but agency officials announced in early September that it wouldn't go live until the fall.

In August 2019, sports betting was officially introduced at Chinook Winds Casino, the lone location in the state that offers retail sports betting. In October 2019, the Scoreboard sports betting app from the run by the Oregon State Lottery was launched.

In June 2020, ROAR Digital announced it will open a BetMGM Sportsbook at Spirit Mountain Casino, which is owned and operated by the The Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde.
