Sports betting in Oregon is, indeed, legal. But it’s one of the quirkiest markets in the US for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, there is only one sports betting platform available to bettors in the state: DraftKings, which joined forces with Scoreboard. Scoreboard was the state-run platform that originally launched in Oregon because the state allows for one sports betting license.
There are a lot of wonky details to get into with regard to Oregon sports betting, so let’s start with the basics.
As mentioned, there’s only one sportsbook: DraftKings. Sure, it’s brutal that bettors only have one option. But on the flip side, DraftKings is among the best of the best in terms of functionality and ease of use. Everything about it is near-perfect, and it outshines most of the competition in any given market.
The other thing to note: Oregon’s sports betting age minimum is 18. That’s a major bonus for bettors living in or traveling to the state.
To bet online in Oregon, you need to be 18 or older and physically located within the state (sadly, being in an “Oregon state of mind” won’t do the trick). This means you don’t need to live in Oregon; you can bet online there even if you’re just visiting or passing through.
Though the actual sportsbook options are limited to a single platform, there are still plenty of sports to bet on in Oregon. We’ll dive into the options later on this page.
Now that you have the basics, let’s explore Oregon sports betting in more detail.
