The Association of Digital Intermediators of Lottery Products was created to unify the voice of companies in this segment in the search for improvements in the sector and in the defense of consumer interests. Among the associated companies are Inovalotto, Lotérica Nova and Sorte Online, a founding member of the association.
AIDIGLOT works to boost the sector, seeing in technology and digital presence the ways to make the impact of these companies increasingly positive. The idea is to offer a diversity of channels and innovative tools to amplify the collection of Brazilian lotteries.
To achieve these goals, the association intends to dialogue with Caixa Econômica Federal and jointly seek solutions for the segment.
