Oregon is preparing for the era of legal sports betting: on August 29, the first bookmaker's office will start operating on the state. It is reported by The News Guard.
Residents of the state will do legal sports betting in a casino Chinook Winds. Players will be able to bet on the outcome of professional and student competitions.
Unlike many other US states, Oregon did not have to enact special legislation to legalize sports betting. The local regulator said the legality of sports betting after the lifting of the ban at the federal level. However, during the time of the ban in the state, there were still quite legal sports bets that existed in the format of a sports lottery.
Chinook Winds will be the first gambling establishment with a traditional bookmaker in state history and the first in the country west of Nevada. According to local law, casinos can offer a bid only offline.
Earlier, we talked about legalizing sports betting in Iowa.
