Reviews and ratings for top online sports betting sites and bookmakers in OR.
The biggest winner in Oregon Lottery history might just be DraftKings Sportsbook. The renowned sports betting operator officially assumed control of mobile wagering in the Beaver State in early 2022, the culmination of more than two years of preparation following DraftKings’ acquisition of the Oregon Lottery’s sportsbook platform. Here's a look at the top sports betting bonuses available to Oregon-based players.
New customers with DraftKings can place an initial deposit and wager of $5 or more on any pre-game moneyline to receive $150 in bonus bets should they win. The reward will be delivered as six (6) $25 bonus bets that are non-withdrawable, non-transferable, non-refundable, and will expire after seven days.
The offer is available until May 28, 2023.

It will come as no surprise to see a rather extensive list of major professional and amateur sports available to Oregon bettors; here are the marquee sports on which Oregonians can wager:
Oregon is known for having a strong NCAA football presence – but most people who love college football almost certainly have a fondness for the NFL, as well. And DraftKings has a reputation for offering one of the most robust selection of NFL bets in the industry, whether your interest lay in futures wagers, spreads and totals, team and player props, or in-game action.
With DraftKings Sportsbook likely to remain the only mobile sports betting operator in the state, you can understand why outside sportsbooks might be hesitant to enter into any partnership with the Portland Trail Blazers. That said, many sports betting companies will use agreements in states where they don’t operate to increase exposure through signage and branding.
I spoke above about Oregon's love of college sports action – but unfortunately for the state's college-mad bettors, wagering on collegiate athletics is prohibited. Oregon is one of the few states with legal sports betting to completely outlaw NCAA wagering, and it doesn't appear that this will be changed anytime soon. Sorry, Oregonians.
Imagine watching with excitement as your favorite Major League Baseball team earns a thrilling win on a walk-off home run in the ninth. Now, imagine doubling your delight because you also had a bet on that team. That scenario is in play for Oregon bettors who have access to hundreds of markets for nearly every game during the MLB regular season and road to the World Series.
Between hosting a storied Canadian Major Junior hockey franchise and having the NHL's newest franchise just one state over, there are plenty of reasons for Oregon residents to have a soft spot for hockey. And while DraftKings doesn't have the widest selection of NHL markets, there is still a lot for Oregon puckheads to choose from on their sports betting apps.
With one of the shortest offseasons of any professional sport in the world, it's easy to see why golf is growing in popularity as a betting opportunity. Oregonians will often have multiple tourneys to choose from in a given week, and DraftKings rewards their loyalty with plenty of markets, along with boosts and promos often built around the major championships.
Golf might be the most popular individual sport for Oregon bettors, but tennis can't be far behind. This is another sport with a short offseason and a bounty of betting opportunities across the majority of matches. And as with golf, you'll be treated to even more chances to build your bankroll via DraftKings when the major tournaments come around.
Unsure about how to thrive at soccer betting? It's worth spending a little time on research. DK Oregon is loaded with soccer betting opportunities, both state-side (primarily via Major League Soccer) and abroad (with notable markets like the Premier League and the Bundesliga). And soccer bettors have an extra opportunity in 2022 with the return of the World Cup.
Like most U.S. states, Oregon has put safeguards in place to ensure that bettors have a way out of any potential trouble spots.
