Winner Scott - Winchester Bay

The magic of winning

A fisherman always has good stories to tell. Scott, a commercial Fisherman from Winchester Bay, recently added another to his repertoire when he won $5,100 playing Video Lottery!

Except for buying a celebratory round of drinks at Double D on the Rocks, Scott has serious plans for his windfall. “I am rigging my boat for black cod, so this money will go toward that,” he said. “We’re setting up for another fishery and this money came at the right time!”

Next time you’re wishing for some fishing, satisfy the urge with Ocean Magic. Like Scott, you too could end up winning — and that’s no fish tale!

Finders Keepers

The magic of discovering treasure

Find glass floats in Lincoln City

Every day, undercover volunteers “seed” a seven-mile section of coast in Lincoln City with glass floats, hoping that visitors will stumble across them.

The floats, produced by glass artists from across Oregon (and even Washington!), are loosely modeled on traditional Japanese fishing floats. Each is a unique work of art and carries a special number that the finder can use to register their treasure. This is the Finders Keepers program. And it’s magical.

Now in its 20th year, Finders Keepers is more popular than ever. In fact, for the first time ever the program has been extended to offer the fun year round. If you decide to try your luck, consider using either the Roads End or Dee River State Recreation Sites; they bracket the search area perfectly. Administered by Oregon State Parks, these facilities are supported in part by lottery dollars. When you play Oregon Lottery games, you help all Oregonians experience the magic of Oregon’s coast—and maybe even find a special treasure!

Odds & Payout Info

Video PokerSM Games >>

A payout percentage range for video poker games can be found on the individual game pages, by clicking the “GAMES” button and looking up a particular game. In video poker games, player choices affect the actual payout percentage of the game. All Oregon Lottery® video poker games have an auto-hold feature in which the game recommends a card-holding strategy during each individual game. Auto-hold strategies vary by game, based on the particular features of a game and do not necessarily result in theoretical payouts. Players have the option of overriding the game’s selections anytime. 

Line Games >>

Each Video LotterySM line game’s theoretical payout percentage can be found on the individual game pages, by clicking the “GAMES” button and looking up a particular game. If a percentage range is indicated for a line game, this means that certain pays may be increased with larger wagers, and/or a bonus may return more with a larger wager. 

Theoretical payout percentages represent the percentage of all credits played returned to players in prizes in the long run. Theoretical payout percentages are based on millions of games played. Individual play experience will vary. Since the result of each spin is chosen at random, only over time will a machine’s actual performance achieve the theoretical payout percentage. Some deviation from the machine’s payout percentage is allowed and expected, but the deviation gets smaller as the number of games played increases. Theoretical payout percentages are verified by an independent, third-party testing laboratory and vary by game. 

Odds for Video Lottery Games >>

Each Video LotterySM line game’s theoretical payout percentage can be found on the individual game pages, by clicking the “GAMES” button and looking up a particular game. If a percentage range is indicated for a line game, this means that certain pays may be increased with larger wagers, and/or a bonus may return more with a larger wager. 

It’s important to note that Video Lottery terminals operate randomly at all times, no matter how many wins or losses have occurred in the past, altering play patterns, time of day, or position of the machine within a Video Lottery retail location. In other words, the result of your last game has no bearing on the result of your next game. 

Odds of winning smaller prizes are much greater than the odds of winning the top prize. Remember, the outcome is random, every time you play. 

The overall odds of winning a prize for each Video Lottery game is posted either on the main game screen, or a help screen on each video lottery terminal. The odds of winning a prize are the same every time you play.
