The Spectrum Gaming team, made up of investment consultants and bankers, including those present in Brazil, recently revealed news about the gaming and sports betting market in the country.
According to the consultancy, on October 2, the Federal Supreme Court (STF) voted in favor of removing the federal government’s monopoly on the lottery operation in Brazil, and the permission of the states to manage their own lotteries.
As a result, the IGT / SGMS consortium, which won the right to operate Brazil’s instant lottery, withdrew from the previous offer due to the delay in concluding the contract and the Supreme Court’s own decision.
According to information from Spectrum Gaming, sports betting is advancing and it is believed that the regulatory process will continue in progress, as the Brazilian government seeks additional sources of income amid the new coronavirus pandemic.
There are already projects in the National Congress that propose the legalization of game modalities and that part of the collection of taxes be destined to social programs aimed at reducing the impact caused by the health crisis.
For the games and sports betting industry, Brazil remains the most attractive market due to its large population and, mainly, because the prospects for building new integrated hotel complexes in Japan have stagnated.
