Oregon gets its first sportsbook ahead of the betting season. Moreover, along with the opening date of NFL, Chinook Winds casino resort is now the first gaming operator in the area.
This news comes in time for the football betting session to begin. Moreover, there are several other casinos that had been thinking about doing something similar but haven’t been able to carry out their plans. It is necessary to note that the casino is not completely convenient to the users since it is a long way from the Portland city, and the customers will have to drive there to place bets. However, it is being hoped that this is a major stimulus for those casinos that have been thinking about beginning online betting, but their plans were falling through.
Moreover, now Oregon has become a state that allows sports betting to take place without any interruption from the lawmakers. Because it is a native casino, it now has permission to take sports bets from the local tribes. This, inadvertently, puts pressure on the other local casinos to obtain permission for sports bets. However, it is yet to be determined if they will do something on similar lines.
Even as the opening date of the casino has been set and the manner in which wagering will be conducted ahead of the NFL season, it is yet to be determined what will be the opening wager of Oregon. Even as suspicions are being raised about the scope of the native casino, because of its limitations compared to the other legal betting casinos in the state, it is positive development that the people in Oregon would be able to place bets as the hyped up NFL season is all set to begin soon.
