Virtual sports betting has arrived in Brazil after developer Vermantia agreed a partnership with state lottery Lotteria Mineira.

Under the agreement, Lotteria Mineira, which is operated by the Intralot Minas Gerais subsidiary of Intralot, will gain access to ‘Vermantia Connect’ and a portfolio of more than 14 virtual sports games, which will be delivered across the lottery’s retail network of 400 shops.

The suite features virtual sports titles from Vermantia as well as a number of its partners, such as Kiron Interactive and Vsoft.

“We needed to open up the virtual gaming sector with content of the highest quality and variety, while having an in-depth understanding of the players’ needs in our local gaming market,” said Sergio Alvarenga, Intralot Minas Gerais’ chairman.

“We firmly believe that the launch of Vermantia’s virtual games will lead to the enhancement of Brazilian players’ betting experience and pave the way for incremental revenue increase.”

Filippos Antonopoulos, chief executive of Vermantia, added: “Our entry in the Brazilian gaming market proves Vermantia’s continuous effort and evolvement within the last two years. We choose to follow the path of customised solutions, always adaptable to our clients’ needs.

“Our virtual games are already live in selected points of sale of Lotteria Mineira with impressive results, which make us confident for the total roll-out in 400 shops, while adding to our global reach of omni-channel, virtual sports delivery.”

TotallyGaming.com says: “Gaming operators and suppliers have identified Brazil as a nation with great potential. Virtual sports are a hot topic for the global gaming industry, and will undoubtedly be a talking point for many at next week’s Juegos Miami event.”
