Fast start slows Lottery’s sports gambling app


WE WILL TALK ABOUT WHAT THE REST OF THE NIGHT BRINGS, COMING UP. JENNIFER: AND OREGON JUST KICKED OFF A NEW SPORTS BETTING APP THAT LETS YOU PLACE BETS BOTH ON YOUR PHONE AND ON YOUR COMPUTER. DAN: AND ITS EXPECTED TO RAISE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FOR THE STATE. OUR LISA BALICK JOINS US LIVE FROM KEIZER WITH DETAILS. LISA: LOOK AT THIS BEHIND ME. THIS IS ONE OF THE FIRST THAT WE ARE SEEING FOR THE SPORTS BETTING AT. YOU HAVE TO BE 21 TO PLAY AND YOU HAVE TO PHYSICALLY BE IN OREGON. IT WENT LIVE YESTERDAY AFTERNOON AND ALREADY THERE ARE MORE THAN 5000 PEOPLE THAT HAVE REGISTERED TO START BETTING. IT IS BETTING ON PRO SPORTS ONLY, NO COLLEGE GAMES. A LOT OF PEOPLE SAY IT IS DESIGNED TO ATTRACT MORE . IS GETTING SMALLER AND SMALLER, SO WE ARE ALWAYS TRYING TO DEVELOP A GAME THAT WILL ATTRACT PERHAPS A YOUNGER PLAYER , TO INCREASE OUR PLAYER BASE. — LISA: I FEW PEOPLE HAVE STRUGGLED TO SET UP THEIR ACCOUNT, BUT THEY PULL IN MILLIONS OF DOLLARS A YEAR FROM SPORTS BETTING. GAMBLING COUNSELORS ARE WORRIED ABOUT THE EASE OF BEING ABLE TO PLACE A BET ON YOUR PHONE AT ANY TIME. THEY CAN SET THEIR OWN PERSONAL LIMITS, BUT THERE IS NOTHING TO AUTOMATICALLY STOP THEIR WAGER. SO FAR, PRESEASON BASKETBALL SEEMS TO BE THE BIG THING.
