Now that many states have licensed sports betting, you may be wondering about Oregon online sports betting.
Online sports betting has revolutionized the sports betting industry in the United States, including in OR.
Sports betting rules in OR
Now, in order to get started with OR online sports betting, you will need to learn the sports betting laws in the state.
In many states, retail sports betting and online/mobile sports betting were legalized separately.
So, we will have to look at both types of sports betting in the state to see just what is allowed.
As of this year, sports betting has been legalized in the state of Oregon.
This includes online sports betting, OR sports betting apps, and sports betting in tribal casinos.
Fantasy Sports or Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) is already regulated in OR. Totally distinct from sports betting, it’s another way to add a layer of entertainment to sports. Claim the Monkey Knife Fight promo code to start playing DFS.
Mobile sportsbook from OR Lottery
Online sports betting in the state will be called the Oregon Lottery Scoreboard.
The OR sports betting app will be called the Scoreboard app. Residents of Oregon who are 21 years of age or older will be able to download and use the Scoreboard app.
The Scoreboard app will be available for both Android devices as well as iOS/iPhone devices. Interested users must make sure they have sufficient memory on their device to download and install the app. They will also want to make sure they have an updated operating system on their device.
OR betting apps and online sports betting websites will not allow bets on college sports.
However, land-based OR sportsbooks like the one at Chinook Winds Casino will accept bets on college sports.
So, it is important to keep in mind the limitations in place on online sports betting.
Retails sportsbooks in OR
However, retail sports betting bars have not yet launched at casinos other than the Chinook Winds Casino in Lincoln City, OR.
So, that means you will not see many active OR sportsbooks at retail/tribal casinos in the state just yet.
OR Sports Betting Roll-out
Sports betting in the state will be regulated by the Oregon State Lottery.
In April 2019, SBtech was awarded the state’s sports betting contract. Online sports betting is set to launch before retail sports betting widely launches across the state.
SBtech already has online sports betting up and running in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Mississippi, so it is expected to have a smooth launch in Oregon.
Residents of the state can look forward to legal online sports betting very soon.
The plan for the launch of OR sports betting in three separate phases:
- First, OR online sports betting will launch.
- Then online sports betting will include OR sports betting apps.
- Lastly, self-service sports betting kiosks will launch, followed by a sports betting version of the lottery.
How to sign up at online sportsbooks
Now, even though there are no online OR sportsbooks currently active, you will want to know how to sign up for one.
So, once the online sportsbooks launch in the state, you will know what to do. And, we can look at online sportsbooks in other states to see what you will need to do.
In order to sign up for an online sportsbook, you will need to go to the sportsbook’s website.
Then, you will need to fill out a registration form. A registration form will ask for personal information like your name, address, email address, phone number, age/date of birth, and social security number.
Once this information is verified, you will be able to create an account.
Typically, you will need to choose a username or your username will be your email address.
You will also want to check out for any sign-up/welcome offers that the online sportsbook has.
