Oregon’s sports betting app (called ScoreBoard) has launched. The program ran into some delays since it was announced earlier this year but apparently is now up and running.
The app was produced by SBTech, a company well known in the sports betting world. They have a large list of credentials in the sports betting arena.
Oregon approached the sports betting issue differently than have other states. The state has decided to run this venture through their lottery system. The program is run independently of the Casinos which are currently all owned and operated by Native American companies. You cannot use the app on native-American casino property. But , there is one exception: A native-American casino, Chinook Winds, is the only place where can place a bet in-person.
The state is planning on having betting kiosks that will be in place next year.
