Wednesday, October 19, 2011 : Governor's concern over ORcade gives pause for thought
Oregon Live reports that plans to introduce an online lottery operational website titled ORcade have been put on the back burner following reservations by the state governor that the enterprise could impact the state's youth.
Top Oregon Lottery officials said Tuesday that the launch of the site has been postponed until expert views have been obtained.
"We believe that it is prudent to hold off implementation of the ORcade website until it is further reviewed by experts," Lottery Commission Chairman Steven Ungar and Lottery Director Larry Niswender said in a joint statement.
"These efforts will be focused on assuring all Oregonians that the Lottery is not intentionally or unintentionally targeting anyone under 18 years of age."
