On Tuesday, April 16th, LOTERJ welcomed 1xBet, a company in the global betting industry, to conduct the Proof of Concept (PoC) aimed at operating sports betting and online games.

The meeting was attended by 1xBet’s national manager, Carlos Eduardo Ferreira, lawyer Alexandre Fistarol, and Russian coach Iurii Mishin.

Carlos Eduardo expressed 1xBet’s interest in operating in Brazil legally, highlighting that since the company became aware of the opening of the Accreditation process by LOTERJ, in Rio de Janeiro, it has shown interest in obtaining the necessary license.

“We are aware of the influence and importance of Rio de Janeiro, as well as LOTERJ, which provides us with the great opportunity to understand our client’s dynamics in a regulated environment, in order to act appropriately in the future.

I believe the main change will be consumer behavior, which will be driven by specific rules. We thank the LOTERJ team for their receptiveness and we hope to collaborate with everyone in the near future”, added Ferreira.


The Rio de Janeiro State Lottery is responsible for managing the game throughout the state. After the ban on casinos, state lotteries became the official alternative, established by Decree-Law No. 6,259, by President Getúlio Vargas.

LOTERJ has been operating since the 1960s, initially in Niterói, and later in the city of Rio de Janeiro, unifying with LOTEG in 1975. For decades, LOTERJ offered the “Ticket Lottery” and innovated with the “Loteria Instantaneous” in 1991, popularly known as Raspadinha.

LOTERJ has a mission focused on social development, allocating 70% of its net profit to social projects in the state of Rio de Janeiro. Therefore, it adopts responsible gaming practices, such as prohibition for children under 18 and recommendations for conscious gaming.

Since its founding in 1944, LOTERJ has positively impacted the lives of thousands of people. Therefore, it remains committed to excellence in lottery products and social actions in the state.
