Lottery Commission adopts new rules

The Oregon Lottery Commission adopted new equipment management rules to prevent video lottery concentration.

The new rules define what constitutes a concentration of Video Lottery retailers, ensures future concentrations do not occur and will set in motion a clear process to reduce any existing concentration. The new rules also will require a business to be open and operating for 90 days before applying to become a video lottery retailer.

The only existing concentration of video lottery retailers is at the Hayden Island Harbor Shops. That neighborhood has a strip of 12, gaming-focused establishments where food takes a backseat to lottery games and cigarette and alcohol sales.
