Omni-channel sports betting and gaming solutions provider SBTech has launched its first online sports betting offering in the State of Oregon, in partnership with the Oregon State Lottery, which will be made available through the Scoreboard app.
Players will be able to wager bets across all major leagues and sports including the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS, PGA, NASCAR and more. Oregonians will also be able to access a number of different bet types, including live bets, futures and prop bets.
“We are thrilled to be working hand-in-hand with the Oregon Lottery to launch this exciting new form of entertainment in the state. The Oregon Lottery is true a pioneer in this space, being the first lottery in the US to launch on-line sports betting. We look forward to providing our innovative and experience-driven products, alongside our full range of managed services, to make this endeavor a huge success for the state of Oregon and its citizens,” said Melissa Riahei, President of SBTech US.
Land-based sports betting kiosks have been confirmed, and will be made available in 2020. Punters will be able to wager at either the kiosks or via the Oregon Lottery Sports website and Scoreboard app.
“This is an exciting time for the Oregon Lottery, as we leverage technology to enable Oregonians to legally and safely bet on their favorite sports. SBTech is an invaluable partner to us, and we look forward to using SBTech’s innovative products to provide an engaging, entertaining and seamless experience for our players,” added Oregon Lottery Director Barry Pack.
SBTech has continued to grow its presence across the US following the repeal of PASPA in 2018. The solutions provider has forged agreements with US operators such as Churchill Downs, Resorts Casino Hotel, and the Golden Nugget.
