Webinar: Brazil – market opening or preserving the status-quo?
Just the sheer size of the Brazilian market, coupled with the sports passion of its population, makes Brazil one of the more exciting and attractive markets for the gambling industry to expand to. However, the unclear regulatory situation discourages most local and international companies from entering and operating in this market, leaving the dominance to the lotteries, mainly the federal CAIXA and state-based lotteries. There have been many attempts, driven by the lotteries, the main regulatory body SEAE, football clubs and horse racing industry, previous casino and bingo operators, to re-establish a regulatory framework in the country, many still alive and now being considered by the Presidential office. The webinar will discuss the interplay between different interests, regulatory prospects for online sportsbetting and lottery and the most recent developments aimed at legalisation of online sportsbetting in the country.
