Video Lottery Terminals are reopening in parts of the state with added precautionary measures in place to ensure safety. Oregon Lottery will not turn on a VLT machine until it is satisfied that the following conditions have been met.
- VLTs must be placed at least 6 feet apart, if there is space to do so. If VLTs cannot be placed 6 feet apart, the Oregon Lottery may turn off VLTs in order to maintain required physical distance between operating machines and players.
- Require individuals to request VLT access from an employee before playing; an employee must then clean and disinfect the machine to allow play. A business must not allow access to VLTs or change VLTs without requesting access from an employee.
- Consider a player seated at a VLT machine the same as a customer seated for table service.
- Limit one player at or around a VLT
Because many lottery retailers provide essential services, several lottery products are still available for purchase. Scratch-its, Keno and jackpot games are sold in many grocery stores and gas stations.
