SBTech powers the first on-line sports betting platform operated by a US Lottery
SBTech, a global leader in sports betting technology and solutions, today launched the first online sports betting offering in the State of Oregon, in partnership with the Oregon State Lottery.
Oregonians can now place bets on a broad range of events through “Scoreboard,” the Oregon State Lottery’s new sports betting platform powered by SBTech. Players will have access to markets across all major leagues and sports including the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, MLS, PGA, NASCAR and more, with a variety of bet types on offer including live bets, futures and prop bets. Fans may wager via the Oregon Lottery Sports website and Scoreboard app, with land-based sports betting kiosks set to launch in 2020.
“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.
“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.” Said Oregon Lottery Director Barry Pack.
While the Oregon State Lottery is SBTech’s first lottery partner in the US, the award-winning company has extensive experience working with tier one lotteries around the world, including in Denmark, the Czech Republic, and Azerbaijan, and most recently entering into lottery partnerships in South Africa, Finland and Sweden.
Since PASPA was repealed in 2018, SBTech has established a strong foothold in the US, partnering with leading US operators such as Churchill Downs, Resorts Casino Hotel, and the Golden Nugget. The company has quickly become the ‘go-to’ multi-channel sports betting supplier for market leading brands, providing its partners with best-in-class, regulation-ready, flexible technology and software to power sports books, self-service kiosks and mobile devices.
