Oregon

Heavy

The State of Oregon is quite restrictive when it comes to the letter of the law as pertains unauthorized or unlawful gambling.

According to the law, any betting through a bookmaker or other form of unlawful gambling is a Class A Misdemeanor which can theoretically carry a penalty of up to one year in jail and fines of up to $6,250.  

Interestingly, despite these somewhat harsh penalties for engaging in unlawful gambling as a mere player, players who lose money by way of unlawful gambling have the right to recover double such monies by instituting a lawsuit against the individual or entity that housed the unlawful game, depending on which section of the statute was violated by way of the conduct of such game.

Furthermore, in the event that monies are gained by an individual conducting illegal gambling operations as an operator rather than a player, the court may also find against that person in excess of the regular statutory fines and may instead issue fines of up to double the amounts profited by the individual or entity engaged in the unlawful gambling.

Furthermore, the laws are even more harsh when it comes to online gambling operators accepting monies from any individual, virtually by any means whatsoever, within the State of Oregon:

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.

Class C felonies are serious business in the State of Oregon with maximum prison penalties of five years and maximum fines of up to $125,000, so Oregon is definitely not a state in which one wants to operate an illegal gambling website. Perhaps more interesting is the fact that operators of illegal online gambling operations face stricter charges than any other illegal gambling operator within the state.

There are a few cases arising in Oregon from illegal gambling operations, such as this case in which three individuals were arrested last year for operating an illegal internet gambling cafe.

Naturally, we can find no record of anyone being arrested for gambling online in the State of Oregon as a mere player.  

In conclusion, the strength of the potential penalties for unauthorized gambling, even as a player, in the State of Oregon cannot be ignored, but there seems to not be much in the way of enforcement of such laws at any level. Ultimately, because of the severity of theoretical penalties alone we are going to have to rank Oregon on the high side of, ‘Heavily Restricted.’  Furthermore, we also cannot completely ignore the fact that penalties for operators of illegal online gambling are so much harsher than other unlawful forms of gambling.
