SBTech launches sports betting with Oregon Lottery

18 October 2019

Legal mobile wagering is now available in Oregon, after the state lottery rolled out its SBTech-powered sportsbook offering Scoreboard.

Scoreboard, the first mobile betting product launched by a US state lottery, allows players to bet on a range of different sports, with a range of bet types such as live bets, futures and prop bets all available.

The contract signed by SBTech and the Oregon State Lottery in June this year also covers land-based wagering, with retail kiosks to be rolled out early next year.

“We are thrilled to be working hand-in-hand with the Oregon Lottery to launch this exciting new form of entertainment in the state,” SBTech US president Melissa Riahei said.

“The Oregon Lottery is true a pioneer in this space, being the first lottery in the US to launch online sports betting,” she continued. “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.”

Oregon Lottery director Barry Pack said the launch marked an exciting time for the business.

“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,” he explained.
