After a waiting period, the implementation of the sports betting regulation in Brazil is expected to happen, which will lead to significant transformations for the betting market in the country. With this new legislation, sports betting should become legalized and regulated, which will provide great opportunities for bettors and companies in the sector.
However, this new regulation requires preparation from everyone involved, from companies to players, to ensure that the new regulations are properly complied with and that the industry operates with transparency and security. In this context, it is essential to understand the changes that will be implemented and to be prepared for all of them.
What can change for the sector with the regulation of sports betting in 2023?
Sports betting in Brazil is allowed under Law 13.756/2018, which deals with the regularization of this type of entertainment in the country, as well as the creation of a new modality called “fixed odds betting”.
However, in 2023, a new set of rules is expected that will allow the complete legalization and regulation of this market, including betting on sporting events such as football, basketball and tennis. With this new regulation on the way, an increase in investments in the betting market is expected, in addition to greater revenue collection for the government.
The Federal Government, through the Ministry of Finance, has already announced a provisional measure that aims to establish the operating rules for betting companies in Brazil, which must be sanctioned within two months.
Issues to be discussed
It is expected that by mid-2023, the Federal Government will present this set of measures to regulate sports betting in Brazil. This process has been guided by two main points: the need to prevent the manipulation of results and the collection of financial resources by the government.
However, it is important to highlight that this debate is much more complex than it seems. In addition to the financial costs, which are a concern for everyone involved in sports betting, there are also social costs, such as the pathological and violent behaviors that can stem from gambling addiction. It is necessary to consider all these issues to ensure that regulation is fair and safe for all.
The regulation of sports betting will bring benefits to bettors and bookmakers
The regulation of sports betting in Brazil will benefit both players and companies in the sector. For players, there will be more security and transparency in betting operations, as well as more options for sports betting on national and international events. However, they will have to adapt to new rules and regulations such as limiting betting and identity verification to prevent money laundering.
For companies, the regulation will open a unique opportunity to enter a market with great growth potential, with an audience passionate about sports. However, brands will have to follow the rules and regulations set by the government, as well as ensuring the transparency and security of betting operations.
A big challenge for the current government
In 2023, the Brazilian government will have a crucial task in regulating gambling in the country. Its responsibility will be to establish the rules and regulations for betting activities, as well as to supervise and ensure the transparency and security of the market. In addition, the government should define taxation for companies in the sector, which could generate important revenue for the State.
However, the federal government will also face the challenge of ensuring that gambling activities are safe and transparent, creating mechanisms to prevent money laundering and compulsive gambling. It should establish protection measures for vulnerable players, including minors and people with mental health problems, in addition to combating the illegal betting market that currently operates in the country.
The regulation of sports betting should also ensure that legal companies can compete fairly and evenly with illegal activities that often do not follow rules or regulations, harming both the legal market and the players.
