Governor offers bill to expand online sports betting in Oregon, but at what cost Derek Helling, PlayOregon · January 14, 2021 at 6:33 am Since the Oregon Lottery introduced its Scoreboard online sports betting service in October 2019, the results have been underwhelming. Gov. Kate Brown may have a solution for that, as she’s pushing for mobile wagering expansion with a new bill. If the bill becomes law as is, it could change the landscape of legal online sports betting in Oregon greatly. In many ways, it could be a marked improvement. There are some questions to answer about the potential future as well. HB 2127 would immediately change state law in several ways. First, it would hand regulatory duties to the Oregon Racing Commission. That wouldn’t mean Scoreboard, overseen by the Oregon Lottery, would cease operations. But it could have new competition.
