On the Trail no more: Oregon launch online sports betting

18 October 2019

Framework in Beaver State first of its kind!

A pre-football season launch failed to materialize but online sports betting in Oregon is now alive and kicking. Better later than never, as they say.

In implementing a regulated industry, The Beaver State becomes the eighth state to introduce online wagering, and notably, the first on the West Coast.

Scoreboard, run by the Oregon Lottery will allow sports bettors in Oregon (but not on tribal lands) the freedom to wager on their favorite sports online.

The offering will also be the only option for sports bettors as per the regulatory structure.

Here are the answers to the most common questions regarding the newest online state:

  • Do I need to be an Oregon resident to bet?

No, this is not a requirement. You can travel to Oregon or through Oregon and use the app to place a wager. However, bettors must be located in state lines at the time a bet is made. Geolocation will kick in to make sure of this.

  • How can I download the app?

Scoreboard is available for download for both Android and Apple via the respective online stores.

  • How do I set up an account with Scoreboard?

First, you need to provide personal and contact information and and then verify your identity using your SSN.

  • Can I bet on all sports?

The Oregon Sports betting bill permits betting on professional sports only. So no NCAA games, for the moment at least. Lines are available for the four major leagues (NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL) and sports of medium to low interest such as Golf, Motorsports, Rugby and Tennis.

  • Will we see any other online sportsbooks launch in Oregon?

For the minute, no. Scoreboard will remain the only online app for sports bettors in OR to use legally. It is thought tribes will be able to apply to launch mobile betting at some stage. But don’t be expecting FanDuel, DraftKings etc. to turn up anytime soon.
