Oregon sports betting launches in time for NFL season

The Oregon Lottery announced sports betting will launch through the Oregon Lottery Scoreboard and players will finally be able to place their wagers.

US.- Every state discussing sports betting wanted the industry to be ready by the start of the National Football League (NFL) season. Oregon is one of them and managed to pull it off, the Lottery announced.

Through the Oregon Lottery Scoreboard, sports betting will be available in the state, after the authorities revealed the sportsbook.

“Oregon Lottery Scoreboard is an online sports book allowing players aged 21 and over, to wager on most professional sports. This is the Oregon Lottery’s first entry into online sales and gameplay,” the body said. 

Furthermore, they announced “plans to add in-venue sports betting at select Oregon Lottery retail locations in the coming months.”

Players must first register and will have their identities verified before being cleared to play. Afterwards, they may bet on “a variety of professional sports including NFL, NBA, MLS, NWSL, MLB and even NASCAR.”

“Geolocation services will ensure Oregon Lottery Scoreboard play occurs within state boundaries, and not on Tribal lands,” the Lottery explained.

The testing period is now underway, but the Oregon Lottery plans sports betting to be ready by the regular season. That way, the segment will likely launch by September.
