Of all the states in the union looking to legalize and regulate sports gambling, Oregon may have taken the simplest course of action. Of course, this simplicity also comes with some limitations. An online sportsbook is available in the state.
However, it is run by the state lottery. Also, although there are dozens of casinos operating in the state, only one has opened a sportsbook.
Furthermore, college sports are completely banned from wagering in the state. Yes, the industry is up and running, but it seems to have come at a cost.
Statewide Brick and Mortar Sportsbooks
As mentioned, there is only one brick and mortar sportsbook operating in the state, The Chinook Winds Casino in Lincoln City is your only option for now.
However, when the state legalized sports betting, they essentially left it up to the Tribal Casinos to decide the details. There are nine other Tribal Casinos in Oregon that may join in.
Available Betting Apps in Oregon
The only legal sports betting app available in Oregon is via the state lottery. Interestingly, there are thousands of places offering lottery games in the state, and many foresee these facilities offering sports bets in the future as well.
Do not look for more sports betting apps anytime soon in Oregon as the state has decided not to offer any competing online licenses.
Best Bonuses and Promotions
Obviously, with such limited avenues for sports betting, there isn’t much reason for any bonuses or promotions. Especially from the state lottery.
However, the Chinook Winds Casino has promotions all the time in the form of raffles and giveaways.
Sports Available for Betting
As mentioned, college sports are completely out in Oregon. This leaves only professional endeavors available for wager. That said, there are still plenty available such as:
- Football (NFL Only)
- Basketball (NBA, WNBA)
- Baseball (MLB)
- Hockey (NHL)
- Soccer (MLS, Premier League, World Cup)
- Combat Sports (UFC and Boxing)
- Golf (PGA, LPGA)
- Auto Sports (F-1, NASCAR)
The payment options at the Chinook Winds Casino are very straightforward and industry-standard as cash, debit card, credit card and bank transfer can all be used. Funding your online account is just as easy as it also accepts bank transfers and debit/credit card payments.
Legal Betting Age
Anyone in the state of Oregan who is also 21 years of age and older will be able to legally wager on sports in a brick and mortar sportsbook or via the Lottery app.
