PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Chinook Winds Casino opened their Sports Wagering Lounge on Tuesday.

Chinook Winds sports betting will only be available at the casino and will include NCAA wagers.

The Oregon State Lottery also plans to offer sports betting games, but agency spokesman Matt Shelby said the agency does not expect its service to be ready for the opening of the NFL season.

“It will likely be two, three weeks into the season,” he said.

The delay was caused by the need to design interfaces between the games and different purchase technologies developed in recent years, Shelby said.

The state’s app will allow bets to be placed from anywhere, but will not take wagers on college sports, he said.
