BRAZIL LEGISLATION


MoF Tweak Wording of Sports Betting Bill Te Ministry of Finance will make adjustments to three points of its sports bill,


after receiving 2,644 contributions during the consultation phase for the initiative


According to the Secretariat of Evaluation, Planning, Energy and Lottery (SECAP), Alexandre Manoel Angelo da Silva: "So far, we think that the proposed model has been well accepted. But the wording should be clarified in several articles,” he said.


Some experts responding to the consultation phase argued that international sites that currently accept Brazilian bets should be quarantined once new rules are in place. Tis would be a way of punishing offshore operators for operating illegally, since online sports betting has not been regulated up until this point. However specialists working for the Ministry gauged that the absence of quarantine would be a way to bring these companies into the newly regulated space. Tis will be clarified in the wording of the new law.


Meanwhile Article 30 establishes that all advertising of sports betting is banned except by those licensed operators. Te wording of the text originally gave the impression that those who already advertise gambling sites in the country may be prevented from participating in the market.

Brazil Pansy Ho Sees Potential in Brazil


Te co-chairperson and executive director of gaming operator MGM China Holdings Ltd, Pansy Ho Chiu King, has commented upon the Brazil market, stating that if Brazil gives gaming the green light then a number of international investors would in all likelihood be willing to get on board.


Te daughter of Hong Kong and Macau-based businessman Stanley Ho, said: “I’m quite sure that Brazil, a major country and one of the largest economies in Latin America and in the world, if it was to consider opening up and to invite other gaming operators to come and develop the same kind of integrated resorts that Macau has expertise in, I’m sure there will be some of the existing gaming operators or even from other parts of the world would be clearly interested,”


Te businesswoman was speaking at the international exchange


platform, Global Tourism Economy Forum (GTEF) which promotes sustainable development of the global tourism industry with a focus on China.


2019 GTEF had Argentina and Brazil as the event’s main partners. Te Brazilian Minister for Tourism, Marcelo Álvaro António, who was also present at the event, said that Brazil was currently looking at regulating the casino market in order to boost tourism.

advertising is not allowed once the legal framework is in place. Another point of the law which needs clarification is taxation and to make it clearer that the taxes will be on bookmaker’s income as opposed to on prizes. In addition the new draft of the decree will clarify that the player can place bets before and during the matches. Another point is the criminalization of illegal betting sites and for those who participate in match fixing. Te government project provides for prison sentences of one to five years for those who operate without a license. Tose who participate in match fixing can face two to eight years in prison. Te clarifications are needed so that the National Congress can pass the bill smoothly.

Brazil


Brazil’s largest state owned bank and lottery operator –the Caixa Econômica Federal (CAIXA) has launched an application for smartphones. Te application has generated concern amongst lottery operators as the app could mean falling revenues in lottery outlets. Marcelo Gomes de Araújo, a member of FEBRALOT (Te Brazilian Federation of Lottery Companies) and ex head of the regional lottery union in the state of Minas Gerais said that: "We all know that technological evolution is inevitable. However, the CAIXA board of directors apparently does not remember that the lottery entrepreneur acquired and paid for their permit after participating in a bidding process.” In a statement Araújo also criticised the state institution arguing that CAIXA is aiming to take the lion’s share from lottery outlets, which will inevitably lead to a decline in revenues for operators.
