Responsible Gaming

Oregon Lottery knows the best sports bettors set strategies for how they play – and stick to them. With that in mind we have included tools and tips on Oregon Lottery Scoreboard that will help you develop strategies for how much, how often and when to bet.

  • View the How to Bet and Betting Rules pages for detail on how all the games work and insight on the odds of winning over time.
  • Try Self-Check, a gaming risk rating tool to help you assess your play habits.
  • Use the Budget Tools like betting, deposit and loss limits to remind you of your gaming goals.

We also know that the best players sometimes take a break from gaming to think about where they want to be with their play. Oregon Lottery Scoreboard offers three different tools for taking a break, so players can decide for themselves what works best for them.

  • Time Out: Is like a short holiday from gaming, a time to recharge and reassess.
  • Self-Exclusion: Is a complete break from gaming on our site, a time to think about change without the pressure of checking lines or your wallet.
  • Account Closure: Let’s you simply close your account – you can always reopen if you decide to.

We recognize that some players will have issues with their play. Resources for help are available for players and concerned others. This includes access to free, professional and confidential gambling counselors 24/7.

Budget Strategies & Tools

Limit Setting

Setting limits is a great strategy for managing your gaming budget. Think about your entertainment budget and decide how much of it you want to spend on gaming, then select a limit that feels right for you. Oregon Lottery Scoreboard offers you the ability to set a variety of limits directly from your account:

  • Betting Limits: Play like a pro and monitor your spend! Setting a betting limit is a great strategy for managing your gaming budget.
  • Deposit Limits: You decide how much money you want available in your wallet and when to spend it! Choose a limit on the amount of money you can deposit on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
  • Loss Limits: The best sports bettors control their wallets. Even the pros have a “loss stop” – and you can set one for yourself right in the app. Choose a limit on the amount of money you can lose on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

Taking a Break

We know that the best players sometimes take a break from gaming to think about where they want to be with their play. Oregon Lottery Scoreboard offers three different tools for taking a break, so players can decide for themselves what works best for them.

Time Out

A time out is like a holiday from gambling, it can help refocus and recharge. Some people like to step back and look with fresh eyes at how much they want to play. Whatever you decide, you're in charge and we're here to help!

Here are a few things you should know about a time out.

  • During a time out you can log-in to your account and withdraw available funds, but you can’t deposit or wager.
  • Once you confirm your time out period you can't shorten it, but you can lengthen it.
  • Once your time period concludes you will automatically be able to begin depositing and wagering again if you choose to.
Self-Exclusion

The best players sometimes take a break. This tool helps you know that you are in control and making the decisions that work for you! It is a complete break. It's a time to catch your breath, without the pressure of checking your wallet or reading the lines.

People often use this time out to think about where they want to be with their play. Some decide to change their limits or strategies; others decide to stop playing altogether for a while longer. Some people decide to not think about gambling at all, and head straight to the beach! How you spend your time out is entirely up to you.

Here are a few things you should know about a self-exclusion.

  • During a self- exclusion you will not be able to log-into your account.
  • Self-exclusion periods cannot be shortened once selected. Self-exclusion periods may be extended.
  • Reinstatements are not automatic. Once a self-exclusion period is concluded a request to reinstate must be sent to scoreboard.reinstate@support.oregonlottery.org .
Account Closure

Account Closure provides a temporary suspension of your gaming account access if you need a break or you just decide to stop gambling for a while. You can always reopen your account later, if you decide that’s the right choice for you.

Protecting Minors

With gaming opportunities so readily available on mobile devices, responsible online gaming relies heavily on parental control and supervision. Underage gaming is not only illegal but can also result in early gaming dependency and substantial debts incurred by unsupervised children. Recognizing this, Oregon Lottery Scoreboard requires age verification and has integrated a number of security features into our digital platforms. Additionally, we offer the following tips for parents:

  • Have open discussions with your underage children about the risks associated with gaming
  • Make use of filtering software to prevent your children from accessing inappropriate material, including gaming sites.
  • Do not allow your underage children to participate in any gaming for money activity, even something as seemingly harmless as Scratch tickets or Loot Boxes
  • Keep your Oregon Lottery Scoreboard Username and Password safe.
  • Do not leave your computer unattended when logged in to your Oregon Lottery Scoreboard account.
  • Keep your credit/debit cards and other financial account details out of reach of children.
  • Do not save passwords on your computer. Write them down and keep them in a safe place, away from minors.
  • Do not use the “Remember Me” feature if you access Oregon Lottery Scoreboard from a shared computer, especially if you share your computer with children.
