Is Gambling Legal in Oregon?
Yes. Most forms of gambling are perfectly legal in Oregon.
Is Sports Betting Legal in Oregon?
Before the federal law banning sports betting was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, Oregon already had laws permitting some forms of sports betting, but these forms were scuttled by the state itself to lure NCAA championship events to Oregon. So, while there are no forms of sports betting yet, prepare for virtual sports betting – a random numbers game akin to Keno in 2019, and real sports betting in Oregon by 2020. It is not clear yet whether the Lottery would be the only state outlet offering sports betting, or if Tribal Casinos will be permitted to offer it as well.
What is the Legal Betting Age in Oregon?
Casinos are open 24 hours and the minimum age allowed is 21 years old. Minimum age for bingo is 18.
Can I Bet Online in Oregon?
As of now, there are three forms of online gambling that are perfectly legal in Oregon. The first is Horse and Greyhound racing. The second is Daily Fantasy Sports on sites like DraftKings and FanDuel. The third is Skill-Based games where the game is determined by the player’s physical skill (like fast reaction or dexterity) or mental skill (logic abilities, strategic thinking, trivia knowledge). Everything else, including online poker, and online sports betting, is still illegal.
When will Oregon have Online Gambling?
There is no current legislation in place to fully legalize online gambling but the current laws on the books in Oregon are confusing at best. There are laws directed at online gambling but the forms of gambling that will get you in trouble are a bit complicated. Section 167.109 states that “it is a felony to accept payments from a person who is participating in unlawful Internet gambling”. That being said, there are no parts of the law that directly criminalize individuals gambling online. Oregon does not restrict any kind of online betting that is legal on the federal level.
