Video Lottery Application Interest Form

Thank you for your interest in adding Video Lottery to your business. Due to budgetary and supply chain constraints, the Oregon Lottery is currently awarding a limited quantity of Video Lottery contracts.

Fill out the form below to let us know you are interested and eligible to apply. If interest exceeds available contracts, we will conduct a random drawing to select applicants.

The first review period will include submissions through October 6, 2022. Submissions received after this time will be considered for the next review period.

Other questions

By eliminating temporary contracts for all new installs, we ensure that the limited number of terminals we have available will be installed at locations where they won’t need to be removed later if the regular contract is not approved.

The temporary contract process is still in place for Sale of Business, Change of Ownerships, and 100% Stock Buyouts, as well as for Traditional Lottery products.

 

Yes, the selected business must be open and operating for the Lottery to initiate the Video Lottery application.

Retailers who meet the waiver criteria must also be open and operating to initiate the application, but they do not need to meet the 120 day threshold. See waiver criteria above.

We are required to place Video Lottery game terminals in retail locations that are viable businesses on their own without the benefit of selling Video Lottery (OAR 177-040-0017). Requiring potential retailers to be open for a minimum of 120 days prior to initiating an application helps us verify this.

Oregon Lottery’s most recent equipment policy reflected that new retailers would receive three terminals. There was an exception process for established Video Lottery Retailers, but this has been suspended during the supply shortage.

All potential retailers that are chosen from the list will be reviewed to identify anomalies and to make sure they meet the minimum standards. If it is identified that a drawn potential retailer does not qualify for an application, they will be contacted by a Retail Contracts employee and a follow-up letter with an explanation will be sent. Another applicant will be selected in the next drawing to replace the nonqualifying applicant.
