Oregon law defines illegal gambling pretty simply as gambling in any way that is not specifically authorized by the state and classifies any such as a Class A Misdemeanor.
While it may seem antithetical, we found in our restrictions research:
That anyone who engages in online gambling has the right of recovery of losses by initiating a lawsuit, this despite the fact that the act itself is supposed to be illegal. Of course, there is absolutely no way that any jurisdiction in Oregon is going to be able to enforce a judgment against an online casino located outside of the country.
Any lawsuit in this regard would be completely pointless. It’s only interesting because most states with the right to recovery do not make it illegal for the players to be playing, only for the operators to be operating.
As we also found on the restrictions page, the laws against operating an online casino are pretty strict and the penalties quite harsh, but this would apply to operators rather than players:
167.109 Internet gambling.
(1) A person engaged in an Internet gambling business may not knowingly accept, in connection with the participation of another person in unlawful gambling using the Internet:
(a) Credit, or the proceeds of credit, extended to or on behalf of such other person, including credit extended through the use of a credit card;
(b) An electronic funds transfer or funds transmitted by or through a money transmission business, or the proceeds of an electronic funds transfer or money transmission service, from or on behalf of the other person;
(c) Any check, draft or similar instrument that is drawn by or on behalf of the other person and is drawn on or payable at or through any financial institution; or
(d) The proceeds of any other form of financial transaction that involves a financial institution as a payor or financial intermediary on behalf of or for the benefit of the other person.
(2) Violation of subsection (1) of this section is a Class C felony.
They would also have to be doing this while in Oregon’s jurisdiction to begin with, which would just be crazy on their part.
Our searches have turned up a few examples of operators being arrested for illegal bookmaking operations in the state, but we were unable to find any records of arrests or prosecutions for the mere act of gambling online, especially NOT in a way having to do with sports betting.
For this reason, the majority of online casinos who operate within the United States also tend to operate in the State of Oregon, and some of these can be found below:
